Perfect Rehearsal Dinner Venue!

We held our rehearsal dinner at the Oxbow Beer Garden and everything was absolutely spectacular. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, with magical string lights and beautiful arrangements of pumpkins and florals. Even on a rainy and cold autumn evening, the space heaters and warm apple cider kept everyone comfortable and content. The staff, servers, and bartenders were kind, courteous, and professional, and Rebecca and her team were extremely helpful throughout the planning process. And the food was wonderful as well鈥攖he pizza was delicious and the kale salad delectable (our guests are still talking about it). We couldn鈥檛 have dreamed of a better rehearsal venue and are grateful to have teamed up with Oxbow for this special occasion.

Oxbow made our unfussy but stylish fall wedding in Western Maine a reality, even in the rain

When we got engaged, Oxbow was the first place that jumped to mind as our venue because we loved the idea of getting married somewhere we already loved spending time at. It also seemed like the perfect place for a wedding that we didn't want to feel too fussy but didn't comprise on a stylish ambiance or great food. Our past interactions with the staff at Oxbow also made us feel like we'd be in good hands -- and that couldn't have been more true. Rebecca and her team were so friendly, communicative and thoughtful; they took most of the the stress out of planning our event, even when we realized that it was going to rain in the days leading up to our wedding in late October. Before we even reached out, they had ideas for how to adjust our plans for the weather, prepped the venue to combat any mud, and in the end, the weather didn't put a damper on the celebration at all. For a venue that we partially chose for its outdoor space, it's a real testament to Oxbow that we still had such a great time in the drizzle, especially under the big pavilion that we lit up with lights and candles, and inside the cozy, rustic restaurant. (Our guests loved it too!) We love that we got married at a place that we can return to for a beer and a pizza all year round, and would totally recommend it to other couples. 11/10.
