I've been lurking around these boards but this is my first post! WOO!
My fiance and I got engaged over Columbus Day weekend, and we're starting to plan our wedding! YAY (although... it's a little overwhelming)!!! We had talked about it before, and decided that we wanted to have it in York Beach. I've vacationed there every summer with my family, and he has come with us since we started dating. We're from right outside of Boston, so we're hoping to get that destination wedding feel, but still have it be convenient for guests
Is there anyone out there who is planning/already had their wedding in York? We've met with York Harbor Inn, Blue Sky/Atlantic House, Stage Neck Inn and Union Bluff Meeting House, and I think Union Bluff is the only place in York that has the capacity to (comfortably) fit our first-draft guest list (around 165-170). We would love some suggestions or reviews! The places are already booking for 2013, so even though I didn't want to rush, we have to make a decision soon for the reception site.
Also, what are your experiences with ceremony sites and officiants? We're debating between having an outdoor ceremony or a Catholic ceremony in one of the churches (since we can't have a Catholic ceremony outside
We're just sort of jumping into the planning, so any advice is appreciated! THANKS!
