“Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be…” – Robert Browning
Everyone dreams of the perfect wedding…a day that will celebrate your love for each other and your hopes and dreams for the future. Whether it be an intimate affair for just you two or a small gathering of friends and family, the Berry Manor Inn in Rockland Maine has a wedding package to suit your unique needs. Here’s everything you need to know to create the fairytale wedding of your dreams.
Choose Your Location
What could be more romantic than escaping to a quiet inn on the coast of Maine to exchange marriage vows in a simple ceremony designed especially for you. Picture an intimate gathering in the garden with a small group of family and friends. Or imagine just the two of you in the quiet elegance of one of our lovely rooms. Perhaps you dream of a simple affair in front of an iconic Maine lighthouse. If so, the Marshall Point Lighthouse, located in the quaint fishing village of nearby Port Clyde, creates a beautiful setting for one of life’s most romantic ceremonies. When you choose the Berry Manor Inn, your options are endless.
Obtain a Marriage License
You will need to apply for a marriage license prior to tying the knot. However, you do not have to be a Maine resident in order to apply. Simply visit a local municipal office to obtain an application. Be sure to bring a photo ID (driver’s license, passport or state ID) and cash to cover the $40.00 application fee. Maine no longer requires a waiting period between obtaining a license and getting married, so you can marry as soon as you get the license. Licenses are valid for 90 days.
Pick Your Wedding Package
Traditional weddings often drain the bank account. But getting married doesn’t have to be a 6-figure ticket item. The Berry Manor Inn offers 2 very reasonable elopement and petite wedding packages that won’t break the bank. The choice is up to you. Choose an elopement package for the ultimate in intimacy. Or opt to include close family and friends with a petite wedding.
Intimate Elopement for Two Package, available year-round, Sunday – Thursday, $1095
This is the perfect package for an intimate affair for just you two. We’ll provide the officiant, bridal bouquet and boutonniere, and a sparkling cider toast to celebrate the occasion. Then enjoy your wedding night in a Posh guestroom of your choosing and wake to breakfast served in our elegant dining room.
Petite Wedding Package, available year-round, starting at $1449
If you’d like to share the occasion with a small group of family and friends, this package is ideal. Again, we provide the officiant, bridal bouquet and boutonniere, plus a boutique wedding cake and the services of a professional photographer for 1 hour. Enjoy two nights in your favorite guest room and breakfast each morning. We’ll even throw in a discount voucher for your first anniversary visit.
