When I give my descriptions of Pop Up Weddings, I say that we can have your ceremony in your ‘free use’ venue of choice. But, like, what does that even mean?
Well, as we all know, Maine is gorgeous, year round! Regardless of if you’re a local or you’ve decided to travel here for your Maine wedding, you’re making a great choice by getting married here.
Because Pop Up Weddings are so affordable, we don’t have the luxury of getting married in a swanky hotel or one of the many, many Maine barns that are designed just for weddings. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful wedding, customized just for you, somewhere else!
All that said, a ‘free use’ venue is defined by me as a space we can use for a Pop Up Wedding for little to no cost, with little to no hassle. In the Portland area, this may be the East End Beach at sunrise, a couple’s favorite brewery that has generously agreed to let us use their space for an hour or so, or the ferry out to the islands.
Heading out of Southern Maine a bit, this can get really flexible! If you’re doing the Intimate Circle or Familiar Friends package and we need to accommodate a few more folks, we may be able to rent an Air BNB on a lake and marry y’all right on the lawn or in front of the fireplace. Do you have an awesome backyard and want to surprise your friends with a wedding and a BBQ?!? Let’s do it!
So, no, when we chat about planning your dream wedding, I’m not going to hand you a list of options. I’m going to listen to what you and your sweetie say, see who y’all are, and find a creative solution to executing your visions! My Pop Up Weddings are as unique as you are, and I can’t wait to make your dreams come true.
