Planning and executing a wedding during a global pandemic was certainly not easy but we did it! Jayson and Olivia handled every single detail to ensure that our daughter's wedding was absolutely perfect! They were very flexible with all of the changes that occurred and adapted without hesitation. The food was outstanding - our guests continue to reach out to tell me what a great time they had. The venue and newly renovated rooms are beautiful. The grounds are a gorgeous backdrop. I highly recommend working with Jayson and his team for your wedding! Wedding 8/15/2020Sent on 08/24/2020

Best day ever.
Reflecting back on our recent wedding at Inn on Peaks Island, this was truly the best day of our lives! Jayson helped to ensure that all my planning came to life and the place had the look and feel I intended. Actually, it was BETTER than I had even envisioned, which was amazing. The space was perfect for our group and I liked having the rooms segmented for the different chapters of the evening. My guests were comfortable and enjoyed the boat ride over and the true "Maine Experience" of traveling to the island for our special day. Jayson was helpful in coordinating with all my vendors the day of, which cut down on a lot of potential stress. It was also really convenient (and cozy!) to stay on site at the Inn with my wedding party and family. I really enjoyed our beautiful and spacious bridal suite where I got dressed for the wedding. The food was delicious and the service was excellent...they even made our own specialty cocktails that I enjoyed throughout the evening. I'd do it all over again if I could and make all the same choices.Sent on 11/19/2019

I have been working with Jayson @ The Inn on Peaks Island for many years. What a great venue, island weddings are so romantic. All the brides keep telling me what fantastic Jayson is to work with and I agree!! Nancy @ Little River Flower Farm
The Inn on Peaks Island is one of our absolute favorite venues to work at. It's always such an experience! Our couples and their guests get to take the ferry over from Portland and the ride over is always filled with fun anticipation. Every room at the Inn is a dream to photograph in with large windows overlooking the bay and the lawn and tent are perfect spaces for a wedding. A quick walk across the street is the beach perfect for sunset portraits while the couples guests enjoy the sunset views from the deck of the Inn.
The Inn on Peaks Island is one of the most popular venues for brides who contact me. Not only is the location beautiful with all of its waterfront property, but the grounds and the structures are incredible also. It's always easy to find lots of wonderful photo locations here, and I've never encountered a bride who was anything less than completely impressed at how the venue served their wedding hopes and dreams.
