Getting Married in Augusta

Getting Married In Augusta

Augusta, Maine is a great place to grow up, own a home, and even get married!

Getting married in Augusta is bound to be magical. Here is why we think it’s the number one wedding destination: 

Dream-Wedding venues

Where else can you get married in a former governor’s mansion?  Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta!

This amazing piece of Maine history is one of the many perfect places in Augusta you can make your fairy tale wedding into a reality. Famous Maine architect John Calvin Steven designed this grand Colonial Revival home for former Governor John Freemont Hill. It served Maine’s first family well until his daughter and her children gave it to the Oblate Fathers for a retreat home in 1949.

Since then, it’s been used for retreats, events, and weddings. Interested in other Augusta, Maine wedding venues? Click here.

Close enough to major cities for an easy commute - far enough away to feel "away"

Interested in a destination wedding, but can’t convince your entire family to fly to the Caribbean? Roughly a three and six hour drive from Boston and New York City respectively (and an even shorter flight!), a weekend wedding in Augusta is close enough that your guests won’t feel overwhelmed by the travel, but instead arrive refreshed and ready to celebrate your big day.

Picturesque scenery

They don’t call Maine the Pine Tree State for nothing! If you are interested in wedding photos with a backdrop of thick, green pine trees stretching as far as the eye can see, crystal blue lakes framed by deep orange sunsets, stunning Greek and Colonial Revival architecture, and maybe even a moose or two, Augusta and surrounding areas will be the perfect place for you to get married.

Augusta has the friendliest folks

Mainers are known for our industrious spirits, so you won’t find a better bunch to celebrate one of the biggest days of your life with. There’s a great community in Augusta and when you’re here, you are immediately part of the family. If anything goes wrong, local folks will go above and beyond to fix the problem, ensuring that your wedding is nothing but special.
