Ocean View Wedding Receptions

Wedding Receptions at Bar Harbor’s Most Iconic Venue

At the Bar Harbor Inn, your wedding reception begins and ends with a beautiful oceanfront location, professional and welcoming staff, and a relaxing environment to share your special day with your family and friends. The unique curved structure of the historic Main Inn, built in 1887, is the location for our two romantic ocean view wedding reception rooms—the Reading Room and Porcupine Room. Both wedding reception rooms are elegantly decorated and offer sweeping panoramic views of the Frenchman Bay waterfront and the Porcupine Islands.

Your wedding guests will enjoy stunning Maine coastal views that provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding reception. Outdoor space is available with our reception rooms, giving your guests the opportunity to enjoy the fresh sea breeze while sipping on a signature cocktail. Our unique gourmet menus include a variety of local Maine selections and can be customized to create a menu to match your wedding day theme. Bar Harbor Inn professional wedding planners will help you coordinate your wedding reception timeline details and are on hand throughout the day to make sure everything runs smoothly.

From casual to elegant, seaside themes to a renaissance style affair, the wedding reception spaces at the Bar Harbor Inn have historic New England charm in a romantic oceanfront setting. Our planning services include set up and breakdown of the ceremony location and reception rooms promoting a more relaxing wedding day experience for the wedding couple.
