The Nonantum Resort absolutely exceeded our expectations! My husband and I were married there on December 3rd, 2017 during Christmas Prelude Weekend. We are not crazy Christmas lovers, but thought it would be a great experience for ourselves and our guests. We were totally right. We had not one complaint, from anyone. We worked with Tim Ames, who is absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond for us. We decided we wanted to get married outside on the water and he made it happen. It was the only wedding he has ever held outside in December, and it was perfect! From Tim's decision to provide complimentary hot apple cider to the perfect sun set during our ceremony. Everything was timed perfectly, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and then to dinner and dancing. Tim was so organized and fabulous, I had not one thing to worry about. The food was amazing and the staff were so friendly and warm. I would highly recommend The Nonantum to any and everyone! You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I married along the shores of the Kennebunk River at the Nonantum Resort last Sunday. EVERY aspect of the wedding was overseen by our wonderful wedding coordinator, Dawn Blytone. Her professionalism and warmth was so impressive that by the end of the event, she felt like family! The entire staff was exceptional in every way. The Nonantum Resort is located on the Kennebunk River and the ceremony (at the Marble Bench) was simply stunning. The bald eagle soaring overhead and the Monarch butterflies flitting about made the day seem as if it was choreographed by Disney! Kudos to the chef! Our wedding meal was the subject of rave reviews by our guests! And Amanada Bruen, creator of our gorgeous nautical-themed wedding cake, was so creative. The cake was the star of the banquet! Choose the Nonantum Resort only if you want the your wedding day to be effortless, spectacular and memorable!

I love being the DJ at The Nonantum for weddings, it's a fantastic venue. Beautiful location, great staff and they've got Tim Ames, the best wedding coordinator in the world!!!

Love all the Staff! It's truly a wonderful family atmosphere and a joy to work with everyone. A favorite wedding venue.

The Nonantum is one of the truly great venues in the state of Maine. Tim Ames is arguably one of the elite wedding professionals in New England. I had my own company event there in November of 2015. The food was out of this world and everything ran smoothly. It was a great experience!

Amazing staff and beautiful views. Top Wedding destination in Maine.

We highly recommend The Nonantum for your next function. We have worked closely with Tim and Dawn for over 10 years for weddings, and private parties. The Nonantum is a wonderful venue for your next event and the staff are easy to work with and have a dedication to customer satisfaction.
