Find Drama, Peace, and Natural Beauty at a Waterfront Wedding

In New England, “waterfront” can range from waves fizzing through tidal pools off the Maine coast, to the sandy beaches of Cape Cod or Martha’s Vineyard, to parks dotting the scattered islands and villages on Lake Champlain. Waterfront locations bring every sensation: glamour, the restfulness of nature, and – getting practical here – a place for the wedding party, family, and guests to play. Waterfront inns and resorts have all the resources you need to lodge guests, hold a ceremony, and host a party suited to the occasion, whether that requires a gala ballroom near the ocean or a rustic lodge or flower-decked gazebo next to a mountain lake. Experts stand by to offer advice and services for transportation, catering, and offering your guests an unforgettable experience.
