The Colony Hotel was THE perfect venue. We had a lot of guests coming from out of town so it was important to us to have a place where our guests could stay and a place that would give them a true picture of Maine's beauty. The hotel is old-time elegance - don't be fooled by the pictures on their website which are not very good. The grand ballroom is a warm, rich room with low ceilings. It provides and intimate environment (even for 175 guests) so no one feels like they've been put in the reject corner. The view from the hotel and the ballroom is just stunning - our guests were raving about it from the moment they checked in! The coordinators are attentive, honest, and so easy to work with. All of the other hotel staff are just as great - from the front desk staff, to the wait-staff and bartenders - they were all fantastic. And then there was the food...it's impeccable. The tasting was a total disappointment compared to what they delivered at our actual wedding. The hors d’oeuvres were flawless, the lobster was perfectly cooked, and each course was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I can’t thank them enough for making our wedding even better than I anticipated. Highly recommend it!

Laura,our planner, was a pleasure to work with. She made sure all of our wishes were taken care of and was always available when I had a question. We were married in September and it was the perfect day! Every detail was taken care of. The service, food and ambiance was more than I could have asked for. My husband and I truly enjoyed our big day and would highly recommend the Colony!

I recently had the honor of officiating the wedding of my son and exquisite daughter-in-law. One word "magical" is the only way to describe the experience. Thanks to Laura Lavigne, wedding planner and her staff. Everyone who attended said it was the best wedding ever. We all fell in love with the beautiful Disneyesque setting of the ceremony as soon as we saw it on the weekend they were shopping for a venue. And on the day of the wedding, with beautiful blue skies(thank you G-d), Mt Agamenticus, 180 degrees of Atlantic Ocean, and sailboats timely passing during vows as a backdrop how could it get better?
The cocktail hour went seamlessly, and everything top drawer delicious.
This is all before we had the wedding dinner ever. Everyone raved about the excellent food and service.
Honestly from taking care of bride and groom and their attendants, moms and me before the ceremony to making ballroom available the morning after for post-wedding brunch for bride and groom and guests (with centerpieces in tact) Exceptional!!
I could say so much more about all that Laura and staff did from beginning to end, as she took care of everyone and everything! Kudos! Job well done!

We had our wedding at the Colony Hotel and we could not have been more thrilled with the entire process from beginning to end and, while everyone at the Colony did a fantastic job, we really wanted to especially mention Laura Lavigne. To say she went above and beyond on our wedding day would be an understatement. Throughout the entire process, from the planning process beginning in February through our wedding and stay in July, Laura walked us through the entire process with invaluable advice, great recommendations, and was always incredibly quick in getting back to us with our numerous questions. On our wedding day Laura was super helpful throughout the entire day, even very early when we needed a printer to print our vows for the ceremony. She helped my wife change mid-ceremony and organized everything so well that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Most of all, when we wanted to upgrade from our wedding night room from one of the rooms in the other buildings to the main building, Laura went to the room during the reception, packed up all the bride's items and moved them to our new, wedding-night room in the main building with a beautiful balcony. Everything was there and organized, along with a card and some whoopie pies which were an especially welcome treat after the long day. Because of our wonderful experience that exceeded our expectations we are looking forward to trying to come to the Colony for our anniversary. In addition, all of our guests talked about how they had such a fantastic time and loved the hotel, the view and the food. We also really appreciated the hotel's willingness to keep the bar open for us after the ceremony. Some of our favorite moments of the day were there and it capped off a wonderful day. Thank you again for making our wedding such an awesome day and especially to Laura for making our wedding day and our subsequent stay there one of the most memorable and enjoyable!

I can't believe we never wrote a review on here from our wedding last June!! We had the most AMAZING experience at The Colony planning our wedding with Laura and enjoying our stay that weekend. Everything was top notch and the views and grounds were breathtaking. I never felt stressed or worried about a thing when dealing with Laura and the team at The Colony. They had an answer to everything, were incredibly detail oriented and truly made our dream wedding become reality. Laura helped us with everything and had a solution to anything!! (budget, seating, vendor recommendations, etc.) The day of the wedding was flawless- we trusted the team with everything and they did not disappoint. (Laura did everything from setting up our entire candy bar, making sure we had a drink in our hand, and made sure we ate and stayed on schedule!) Our family and friends kept saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to and that they thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The filet and lobster and open bar options are high quality bur extremely affordable for what you get. Again, every one of our guests said our wedding "blew" away black tie weddings in downtown Boston. The service was top notch and the day went so smoothly. We could not be happier with our experience and felt so happy all weekend! Stop looking.. this is the best wedding venue in New England.. hands down! Even our guests are planning their next vacations to the hotel! Thanks again Colony!

The Colony Hotel was always my dream venue to have my reception and my dream came true on a beautiful May 2015 evening! Throughout the whole process from planning and coordinating, to the tasting, and to the last meeting before the big day, Laura, the Event Manager was absolutely fabulous! I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with in helping me put together the biggest day! She was so friendly, inviting and very easy to work with! You can see she really cares about each wedding and the brides/families she works with! The Grand Dining room is so elegant and naturally beautiful! The staff was so attentive to our guests and very polite.... which makes such a difference! I would highly recommend The Colony Hotel to everyone looking for a beautiful hotel right on the water to celebrate your wedding! I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

My husband and I got married here in July 2014, and we wouldn't change a thing! Laura, and everyone else who worked so hard to make our dream a reality, succeeded immensely. Everything about our day, from the ceremony to the afterparty in the Marine Room, was perfect. Our guests still rave about our wedding, and we wish we could do it all over again. We returned this year to celebrate our first anniversary, and plan to do the same for years to come. Having grown up spending entire summers in nearby Ogunquit, it was important to us to choose a nearby location which we could visit for years to come, and we know that the Colony fit the bill. It was the perfect amount of relaxed seaside elegance, which is exactly what we were aiming for, to match our personalities! Thanks so much to everyone who worked to make our day so perfect!

The moment we walked into the Colony Hotel when we were searching for a wedding venue a year ago, we knew this was the place for us. It really is the quintessential New England old world seaside resort hotel, with expansive porches & large windows to enjoy the sweeping sea views. The experience we had with our wedding there this fall was absolutely perfect, thanks to Christian McCrory & the fantastic staff at the hotel. Christian was a pleasure to work with from the start, always promptly responding to any questions or concerns I had, and making the entire process of wedding planning easy and stress free. The day of our wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing, he handled any issues that came up, and as sweet as he is, was a bulldog for us when he needed to be. Everything ran so smoothly, and we were able to just relax and enjoy the day and the entire experience. The ceremony site and the ballroom are both absolutely beautiful, and our food that day was delicious. The resounding response from our guests was "Best wedding ever!" and although I'm probably a little partial, I completely agree :)

He was flexible in planning and was able to accommodate what we were looking for to make the entire weekend incredible!!! We are still getting compliments about the venue months out, and we have heard nothing but awesome comments about it! The staff was fantastic and helping all of our guests, they were flexible with last minute changes and they were able to put up with our rambunctious crowd! We had such a blast and could not have imagined a better place to have shared our wedding day with all our friends and family. The entire weekend was amazing and we were able to utilize the whole venue over the course of the 3 days!!!
