I don't even know where to start - French's Point was everything we could've asked for and more. I found them in a Destination Wedding magazine, went to the website, and fell in love. We took a lot of scary steps, planning a wedding from Texas and signing our contract "site unseen" but every risk we took was rewarded with an amazing experience from start to finish.
The staff are warm, friendly, and very attentive. I felt like we had become friends by the end of our experience, and I miss our weekly email exchanges!! Who can say that about their wedding venue contacts?!?! We did almost all our communications via email, which were always prompt and thorough. They were also great about planning conference calls to keep me on target with all the little details. Since we didn't live in Maine, they also gave excellent vendor recommendations, and every single vendor was fantastic.
The site itself is stunning - and we also took advantage of renting Beach Rose Farm for Wednesday - Sunday. This was one of my favorite parts of our destination weekend - walking around the farmhouse watching all our closest friends hanging out, playing games, and enjoying each other's company - and enjoying Maine as well (a first time visit for almost everyone attending our wedding)!!
During the ceremony the staff kept everything running smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The service staff were super attentive and friendly. I had guests tell me it was the best service they've experienced EVER. And the food - it was not "just your typical wedding food" - it was amazing. We did the buffet and there was more than enough for everyone and plenty of variety for those of our guests with specific food requests/issues. We ended the night with the s'mores fire pit and it was a huge hit!
All in all, French's Point was the best decision we made for our wedding celebration weekend.

We could not be happier with our decision to host both our wedding and reception at French's Point! They were there every step of the way, answering questions, providing guidance, and soothing nerves. You will find no finer people and no finer location. Being able to stay in their farmhouse and spend time with our family and friends prior to the wedding was the icing on the cake to an absolutely beautiful ceremony and reception. It was the first and BEST decision we made in our wedding planning process.

My husband and I used French’s Point Estate for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day events. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect location for everything. The grounds and building are so well maintained there wasn’t a thing out of place. The service both during our long planning process and on the weekend of was absolutely impeccable. I felt like royalty and all of our guests did too. Most importantly to me, with Jessika, Eric & Sarah in charge I was able to relax and truly enjoy the day; which is everything I had wished for. I never imagined I would get so many complements on our wedding, the location and service but thanks to FP we haven’t stopped hearing about it.

French's Point is the a picturesque spot to get married but what really makes it wonderful is the service and the staff. They really work with you to make sure you get your vision, they are accommodating to different meals, and they really make you feel like you are the only bride that they are working with. The accommodations at the neighboring farm house are perfect for a wedding party or family gathering prior to the big event. They have an on-site boudoir suite where all of the ladies and I got ready beforehand making it a perfect and relaxing morning. They also make sure all of the VIP guests are served, get appetizers, cocktails, and are in good hands. It was such a magical experience and the staff and venue were a big part of it!

French's Point was run by a wonderful group of people who worked hard and did an amazing job with my wedding. They were helpful, organized, accommodating, and did everything to the highest level of class.

The first thing you notice when you arrive at French’s Point is the ocean. The views are breathtakingly beautiful, especially on a sunny day. Once you have taken in your natural surrounding you start to notice the beauty of everything else. The landscaping at French’s Point is immaculate. Over the course of my engagement I visited French’s Point several times during three of the four seasons. Each time I visited the seasonal flower variety only added to the natural beauty of the location.
The interior of French’s Point is almost as beautiful as the outside. The large windows allow guests access to the view while enjoying dinner and dancing. We had 150 guests at our September 17th, 2010 wedding which was a perfect fit for this location. All of our guests comfortably fit into the dinner room and left plenty of room for dancing and visiting in the other rooms. Because the weather cooperated we were able to enjoy a cocktail hour on the patio. An additional bar was set-up outside for the cocktail hour to better serve the guests. We have and continue to receive raving reviews about the French’s Point venue, including a friend’s mother saying “my son is definitely getting married here”. My grandfather, who is not quick to give out compliments, said “this is the best location and venue I have ever seen for a wedding.”
The bridal suite upstairs was the perfect place for me and my bridal party to get ready. We were able to have our hair and makeup done onsite while enjoying the beautiful views and the ocean breeze. The service while we were getting ready was also excellent. There was always someone checking in to see if how everything was going and if we needed anything.
Jessika was also a pleasure to work with. She is very profession and is an excellent wedding planner. The French’s Point website is also offers a wealth of knowledge on local vendors and things to do while in the area. I referenced and referred it constantly during the wedding planning process.
Overall, the venue was gorgeous and the service was excellent.
