I have always had this vision for my wedding that I'm not sure is possible and I'm looking for ideas on how to accomplish it.
Ideally, I would love to rent a big house on the beach (enough to sleep immediate family) with ample outdoor space for casual lobster bake and dancing. I would have the quick ceremony down on the beach and then the reception would be casual and spill from the house, to the lawn to the beach throughout the night.
My favorite place is Drakes Island in Wells, ME. It's a very quiet place so I'm not sure I could ever get away with something like this.
Does ANYONE rent private houses and allow this kind of thing? Has anyone seen weddings done in a similar way?
