Bay

French’s Point Private Estate
Stockton Springs, Maine

Drive north, north, and even farther north until you reach this secluded coastal manse, located on a Penobscot Bay peninsula. With an organic garden, private beach, and acres of sweet roses, this is the locale for nature-loving couples. It’s also a versatile property, accommodating weddings both large and small (up to 300 and as few as 30 guests). For stunning big-day photos, take a romantic stroll down Bluff Path, which meanders along the shoreline. Just don’t spend too long kicking back in the Adirondack chairs—you do have a party to get to, after all.
