I highly recommend The Meeting House for a wedding venue. My daughters wedding was AMAZING! Darlene and her entire staff were wonderful to work with and very professional. It was perfect to have everything in one place hotel, venue, and all the shops and restaurants in walking distance. Many guests came for the weekend and never got back in their car. The food was exquisite and service was top notch. I never noticed the waitstaff coming or going.
Darlene was on top of everything and I never needed to ask for anything. She was ahead of it all. She took all the stress off of my daughter and me!
My daughter and new son in law looked beautiful and enjoyed every moment!
Venue is beautiful and views are amazing!
I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding for my daughter!
THANK YOU DARLENE AND STAFF!

My wedding was in June, and 3 months later people are still complimenting me on the Food, the Location, and the entire weekend. Several people have even said it was the Best Wedding they've been to, I know you can't believe everything you hear, but to me it was PERFECT!... We had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Union Bluff Grille (clambake, YUM!), perfect weather for guests to enjoy the beach for the weekend, and we had a Breakfast at the pub on Sunday, where my left over centerpieces decorated hotel :). The most important thing for me was for my guests to have fun. I had people traveling from Australia, Ireland, California, Hawaii & Virginia and I wanted to ensure that family and friends could spend time with each other for more than my 5 hour reception, and that's exactly what the Union Bluff helped me accomplish. I can't take much credit for it, b/c Darlene and her staff were amazing. Darlene checked in with me throughout the months leading up to the wedding to ensure I was on track with everything, she helped me plan my menu and assured me everything would be OK, and it was!.. Thank you!!!

My husband and I just got married at the Meeting House on June 27, and we could not have been happier with that decision! We are from MA and so planning an out of state wedding was hard enough, but working with the main coordinator Darlene made our lives so much easier! Darlene was available any time we ever needed her, in fact it was a running joke in our emails how many novels with questions I would ask her! She was professional and always responded immediately to all my questions. The day of the wedding was a gorgeous day with the ocean right behind us! Darlene and her staff were there every step of the way and the guests RAVED about the food. We took our wedding photos right on the beach and my dress got very sandy. Darlene had a bucket of water for my feet and she got sand all over her dusting my dress off! Darlene made sure everything was perfect for us. Get married at Union Bluff, you will not regret it! Thank you Darlene and the Union Bluff team! :) - Lindsey and Tyler Bhaumik

Darlene was the best. She kept everything on time and above and beyond doing her job . Even after the ceremony was over she packed everything up for us. The view from the meeting us is spectacular also. We had more than one person go out of the way to tell us it was the best and most fun wedding they had ever been to. The food us also outstanding with great servers. Carrie Ann also did a great job. We wouldn't have changed again. We also have another daughter and when her day comes would love to use the meeting house again

I cannot say enough about The Union Bluff Meeting House. I have visited York Beach Maine every since I was a baby. It was like a second home. After getting engaged on the beach, we knew we wanted a beach wedding. I honestly didn't think we could afford the Union Bluff so I didn't even look. It wasn't until after seeing venue after venue that I figured why not try... It will not disappoint! They literally can work with any budget, and even the most modest wedding looks like a million bucks! The room is gorgeous and they have so many stock pieces available in a beach theme to save you money. We used the house linens, lobster trap for cards, and hurricane candle, sand and shells centerpieces and they were outstanding. The food was amazing, which in my opinion most wedding food or any food that is made in bulk is just ok, and the service was extraordinary. Carrie Ann was very attentive and took care of everything ! She kept us on time and was always there to answer a question. I highly recommend taking advantage of a lighting package if it comes with your dj or getting the lighting from another vendor. It really takes the room to the next level. To save money we had our wedding in April on a Friday night, and it was amazing. Our whole family, being from Mass took over the hotel and it was an amazing weekend worth every penny--A DREAM WEDDING!

I LOVED getting married at the Union Bluff Meeting House and its a special place I know I will visit for years to come! The ceremony site is so perfect, right overlooking the beach/ocean. We loved the comfort of the The Meeting House ballroom, with an enjoyable deck to mingle and enjoy the stars and full moon. The food was delicious and our guests raved about our surprise Smore bar. Darlene was the best part of it all! She was our designated coordinator and she was so great at getting back to me right away. I never felt stressed because I know I could always contact her for quick advice, even if it was regarding other vendors. She always went above and beyond and I am so grateful to have had such a stress-free vendor to work with. I loved attending our tasting too!! Highly recommend the UBMH. The rooms are the nicest and probably the nicest we have ever stayed in!

We could not possibly say enough good things about Darlene and The Meeting House - and neither could our guests!! Everyone is still raving about how beautiful everything was and how excellent the food was. I grew up vacationing on York Beach in Maine and always dreamed that one day I would get married there. Thanks to Darlene and the rest of the staff, I feel so lucky to say that I had the wedding of my dreams - in my most favorite place!! The location and venue were so beautiful - and all of the staff were so attentive and so polite. I was so impressed with the level of service and how elegant everything was that day. And Darlene is amazing!! Throughout the whole process, she was so patient with us and always responded to all our questions/requests. She honestly made us feel like we were her only wedding that year!! (and we know that is not the case). That day she ensured that every single thing ran smoothly; she went around to tables and made sure everyone was happy and she even managed to fix a rip in my dress, before anyone else could notice. She is the best and we would most definitely recommend The Meeting House!!! The location, the quality of the food and the unbelievable staff can't be beat!

My husband and I are still on cloud nine from the perfect wedding at the union bluff meeting house! We knew we wanted to get married there because of the location, which was everything we dreamed and more but Darlene and the rest of the staff at the hotel and meeting house helped to make this our dream wedding. From day one, we were impressed by the organization, timely responses, advice and helpful hints. The day of the wedding I felt so lucky to have Darlene there to help me keep all the vendors organized. She is absolutely fabulous! She never misses a beat and knows every step and detail for the wedding. I couldn't have asked for more as a bride. The food was delicious, guests were happy and we would do it again tomorrow the same way if we could!!! Highly recommend!!!!

Darlene and the rest of the staff at the Meeting House helped give me the wedding of my dreams. The location itself is spectacular. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner, our specialty cocktail was fantastic, and the decor of the room was exactly what I wanted. The staff is extremely professional and my wedding was smooth, energetic, and an absolute great time was had by all. I can't compliment Darlene enough about her responsiveness and availability throughout the planning process. She even checked in with me during the day of the wedding to show me pictures of the ballroom to make sure it was to my liking. Overall, she is phenomenal and I recommend her and the Meeting House to all future brides.

When I was a little girl and spent each summer in York Beach, ME where the Meeting House stands now was the old movie theater. Several years ago when they knocked the theater down and built the Meeting House I said to my family that this was where I was going to get married!! Low and behold my boyfriend proposed and this was the First and ONLY location we went to visit for our reception. My fiancé and myself along with our entire family could not have asked for more!! From the planning to the actual event, Darlene and the staff of the Meeting House and Union Bluff did an amazing job. The ceremony, food, decorations and staff of the hotel, there was nothing we would have changed. If I could give more stars I would!!

You will not be disappointed!! Just pick up the phone and set a meeting!!

Our wedding at the Union Bluff Hotel was perfect! Thanks to Susan's incredible organization and professionalism, we didn't have to worry about a thing throughout the entire planning process. We wanted a venue on the beach where everyone could stay for the weekend and we got exactly that. Our ceremony was on the lawn and then our guests stepped right over the beautiful meeting house for the reception. It was so nice to have everything in one place. The hotel was perfect and everyone was incredibly accommodating to our guests. We are so happy that we chose the meeting house for our wedding. We would highly recommend it!

This venue is amazing! The spot is beautiful and right on the water. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Darlene and Susan are great at what they do. The food was delicious and everything from the hotel to the meeting house kept up extremely well! All of our guests had an amazing time and raved about the food!!

Ok - my husband and I cannot say enough about the Union Bluff and Meeting House, and about their coordinators, Darlene and Susan. We worked mostly with Darlene...and she is just amazing. Firstly, the entire hotel and reception space is GORGEOUS! For an outdoor wedding, there is a grassy knoll area that overlooks Short Sands Beach and the ocean. They have an arbor you can use, too, if you wish (we had a Chuppa made). The space is just so gorgeous! Everything at the hotel is amazing too...the food at the pub rocks (no, really), and the food at the Union Grill is impressive gourmet good that isn't overpriced considering it overlooks the Maine coastline. We had our rehearsal dinner there and EVERYONE RAVED about how good the food was. Appetizers, too. We booked a corner ocean-view room with deck for three nights...the room was slightly more compact than I expected, but it was still great. (We couldn't afford the best of the best rooms...) The deck made the experience even better - we even had some bride/groom and wedding party photos on the deck. We also did our first look on the deck and it was AMAZING to be on the ocean, to feel the breeze and for us to see each other for the first time.

The Meeting House reception space is probably once of the nicest spots I've seen. The patio overlooks the ocean, the bar opens up to both the patio and the reception hall, AND the bride and groom get to chill out in a private room with apps and drinks before being announced to the reception. The food was amazing, too (not that we ate much...but that's the word from our guests). We'd rented just half the hall with our smaller numbers, and it was the perfect amount of space. As for the options, there are so many to choose from...from the food, to the linens you can rent out through Darlene, to the well bar drinks, to the seating arrangements and table arrangements...you can pretty much have everything the way you want it. We weren't picky about these things, but it was nice to be asked and get Darlene's opinion.

And Darlene is so wonderful to work with. From the very beginning when we met with her about the Meeting House as a potential spot, she was professional, pleasant and totally in the know about how weddings work. Again...we were such rookies, we depended on her feedback and opinion on everything and she did not disappoint. She is available via phone and email pretty much any time you need her, and there was never a time when I was made to feel like my questions were silly. AND...whomever you work with will also be at the venue the entire time during your ceremony and reception to make sure things go as planned. From the decorating, to the set-up, to the organization of people, to the ceremony parts (procession and recession), to the order of reception events, and even to how to cut the cake (which we still managed to botch!)...they are there for whatever you might need. And I think they sort of hang back after the bride walks down the aisle so it's still "private", per se, but they are there in case. And during the reception Darlene was totally receptive to us. It was a great comfort to have someone there to keep track of things and in case something went wrong.

If you're considering the Union Bluff for your ceremony/reception...you will not be disappointed in anything!

My wedding was held on March 10th at the beautiful Meeting House in York, Maine.  I like to call it the Wedding of the century! J My Mom, Husband, and I had the pleasure of working with Darlene and Susan who are the Event coordinators.  Darlene is the main point of contact for event planning and is wonderful to work with.  She was always very responsive to my emails (felt like daily) I would send her, solve any wedding related drama that arose on my end, and provided tons of options and ideas.  She also made our dinner tasting so much fun by inviting us to a private tasting since our wedding was off season!  Darlene made every aspect of wedding planning a breeze, and not to mention the rehearsal and wedding day a cinch! From the moment I saw the Meeting House ball room I knew it would be my venue, but my only fear was that it was out of our price range!  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out go take a peak!  We scheduled a meeting to meet Darlene, but she had been stuck in traffic in Boston and couldn’t make it back in time.  We was very apologetic and we were casual and could reschedule.  A very nice woman at the front desk brought us to the room and provided the wedding packet!  We were able to ask her a few questions as well.  Darlene definitely went above and beyond to make up for missing the meeting.  She provided us with dinner at the Bluff grill for after our next meeting!  We met with her, loved her personality and creativity -- then had a fabulous dinner!  She certainly did not have to do this, but it certainly gave us a chance to experience what the Bluff could do!  She also showed us rooms above the venue where my guests and I would be staying.  I was so excited to actually think my wedding would be here.  It was a dream!  The rooms are pristinely clean, modern, and comfortably cozy!  !  I highly recommend working with the Union Bluff to plan your wedding.  You certainly will not be disappointed!

To sum up our amazing experience with the Union Bluff Meeting House, I'll tell you what my husband said the day after our wedding: "If Darlene asked us to be in a commercial for the Union Bluff, I'd do it for free." We cannot say enough good things about this venue. First of all, through the planning process, Darlene was a life saver. Never once did I have to wait more than 24 hours for a response to an email I sent her (even on days she was "off"). Any request I had, the answer was always “yes, we can do that.” She is a rock star wedding coordinator.

The day of the wedding, Darlene and her staff run things like your wedding is the most important wedding they have ever done. The food comes out quickly and everything moves along so that dancing time is maximized! Oh, and the food… the food. The food was SO GOOD. A few of my family members commented that the steak they had with the surf & turf was “the best steak they have ever had in their life.” I didn’t get to try any of the apps during the cocktail hour, but I hear those were good as well! Darlene had accommodated our request to customize the beers behind the bar, and it was fun to see guests walking around with all the local brews we had picked.

After the reception was over, the hotel staff accommodated our large group of guests who wanted to keep the party going (it was an Irish wedding, it wasn’t going to end at 10pm) by opening up the restaurant side for us so we basically had our own pub for the night! They let us have an Irish sing-song in there (who doesn’t bring an instrument to a wedding, right?) and kept the drinks flowing until they closed up at 1am. It was a blast and the perfect ending to a perfect day. We also had a brunch the next morning for our guests, which was a huge success and the Union Bluff kept the food coming despite the fact that twice the number of people showed up for the brunch than I thought would!

In terms of pricing, I did find that setting up our own menu a-la-carte style was much cheaper than the packages. It allowed us to have surf & turf as a menu option, which would have been prohibitively expensive at most other venues!

Obviously, the venue is gorgeous. I mean, you’re looking at the ocean. The Meeting House is a beautiful space, and the porch is perfect for the cocktail hour. The bridal suite above the Meeting House is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for getting ready in. York Beach is a great place to host out-of-town guests because you can walk everywhere and the town is so cute.

I feel like my review can’t do the amazing experience we had with the Union Bluff Meeting House and Darlene justice. Book your wedding there and you won’t regret it!

Darlene and her staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make our day perfect in every way. Every email I sent, she responded within a day (usually within an hour). I am a overly detailed-conscious person. SO IS SHE! We worked so well together. She had suggestions for me which helped me reach the "Beach Elegance" theme I was going for. Everything on our day was PERFECTION. Thank you to everyone at the Meeting House...from the housekeeping ladies who got my bridal suite ready for me in record time, to the chef who prepared the most amazing dinner, to the valet guys who ran back and forth parking people's cars for them...but, most of all to Darlene...without you, our memories wouldn't be what they were! LOVE GERRILYN & MICHAEL!!!!

The Union Bluff was more than incredible with our wedding day/night! They not only provided us with our own pre-ceremony changing room, but they offered us glasses, water, brought the bouquets right to us so we didn't have to worry about picking them up, and were all around a wonderful experience!

Then when it came time for dinner, the service and food was extraordinary! They had put out a banquet of cheese and fruit for people to pick at until we arrived, and they were so pleasant and accomodating the entire time! Everyone had a great night, and everyone LOVED the food there! There was not a single plate left with food on it by the end of the night! :) Bravo!

I can't even say enough about The Union Bluff Meeting House and their coordinator, Darlene. From day one, Darlene made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed. She tries her very best to remove all the stressors of your wedding from you, and she handles everything to a tee. She will answer your emails at all times very quickly and does her best to keep you focused on the 'big picture'. We had a lot of little details as part of our wedding and she executed every single one of them just as (even better!) than we dreamed of. She really made our wedding dreams into a reality. She is so on top of her game and stayed 5 steps ahead of us at all times (which was not easy with me as a bride!!). Not a single thing went wrong on our wedding day largely in part to her! The venue is beyond gorgeous, as well as the ceremony spot outside, you can't beat the location, the food is to die for, and you have one of the best coordinators ever at your beck and call! Everyone is still talking about how our amazing wedding and how it was the best wedding they've ever been to!

I wish I could give this a 10 out of 5 (that's how good it was)!!!! Darlene is hands-down the BEST coordinator that we met with, and is a HUGE reason why we booked at The Meeting House. She could not do enough for us, or our families. She is so on top of her game, that it put my "super organized, almost OCD" personality at ease right away. The whole day could not have been better. It was GORGEOUS!!! She definitely worked with our budget and gave us the best ideas. We had a quilt for guests to sign, and needed to make sure that it was turned halfway through the reception. My mom said she would do it, and without hestitating Darlene said it was already undercontrol. She took care of everything so that our family and guests could enjoy themselves. She worked so well with all our vendors as well (as we booked our DJ, photographers and cake separately). I cannot say enough about how great our day was and what a huge part Darlene played in it. The whole place is beyond beautiful. We already have a one-year anniversary trip to go back (with our friends and family)! Thank you so much for everything! Absolutely, more than we ever imagined!!!

Darlene at The Meeting House is fantastic. She always freed up time in her schedule to meet with us, which was very important because we were planning our wedding from out-of-state. She was instrumental in ensuring that the day went as we had planned. She also went above and beyond our expectations by doing little things such as bustling my dress and checking up on us throughout the night (she even brought us cocktails before we made our entrance). The venue is beautiful and well-maintained.

The only complaint I had at all was with the hotel itself messing up the hotel bags I wanted them to hand out. And doing reservations was a pain for my guests. but as far as the Meeting House at Union Bluff and Darlene and Janet are concerned they are freakin' amazing. They did it all. It went so smoothly. It was the best :-) They dealt with me being really picky too! haha. They were awesome.
The only thing that I didn't like was that they said there would be a projector and it had not come in yet so I had to rent one for $150. But that's it!! It was a beautiful place and great deal for the money!!!
Everyone loved it :-)

When we got engaged we knew we wanted to be married by the water and we decided on Maine even though we live in Boston because its a very special place in our hearts and we go there every year. We were sold on the Union bluff after our first meeting with Darlene the coordinator and that breathtaking view, so we booked that day! Never mind the gorgeous views overlooking the water, the outdoor patio for cocktail hour and the amazing food. Darlene exuded confidence and I knew there was no way she was going to let anything happen to ruin our big day! even during the wedding day preparation she was in/out of my suite updating us on the weather and how everything was going, which our course calmed my nerves. We were in constant contact with Darlene and her assistant Carrie over the next year and they always responded promptly to any questions that arose. Our total count ended up being 175 people. and Since we come from two food centered families what we chose for dinner was very important to us. We ended up choosing the Concord package which we felt was the best value and was more than enough food for our guests. The room itself is beautiful and we were able to fit 175 comfortably with extra tables for a cookie bar we did and the massive dance floor! The wait and bar staff was excellent, helpful and so friendly we met them for the first time at the tasting and could immediately see they were there for us!

When we got engaged we knew we wanted to be married by the water and we decided on Maine even though we live in Boston because its a very special place in our hearts and we go there every year. We were sold on the Union bluff after our first meeting with Darlene the coordinator and that breathtaking view, so we booked that day! Never mind the gorgeous views overlooking the water, the outdoor patio for cocktail hour and the amazing food. Darlene exuded confidence and I knew there was no way she was going to let anything happen to ruin our big day! even during the wedding day preparation she was in/out of my suite updating us on the weather and how everything was going, which our course calmed my nerves. We were in constant contact with Darlene and her assistant Carrie over the next year and they always responded promptly to any questions that arose. Our total count ended up being 175 people. and Since we come from two food centered families what we chose for dinner was very important to us. We ended up choosing the Concord package which we felt was the best value and was more than enough food for our guests. The room itself is beautiful and we were able to fit 175 comfortably with extra tables for a cookie bar we did and the massive dance floor! The wait and bar staff was excellent, helpful and so friendly we met them for the first time at the tasting and could immediately see they were there for us! Our families are rather big drinkers but the line never became too long. Read less

I had my wedding here last October. Okay, I am a lot over due. I am extremely satisfied with our experience of having our wedding here. Darlene was our wedding coordinator and she was awesome. She was responsive, provided her honest/helpful opinion on things, and was all around on her 'A' game at all times, which is exactly what you would want in a wedding coordinator. We did not have a plated meal, we opted for stations so that the reception would have a more 'casual' feel. The food was AMAZING. To be honest, I did not expect the food to blow me away (especially, since we opted for stations) but the food, both entrees and appetizers completely exceeded my expecations, my husbands, our very picky Italian families and friends. My one issue with this venue, was more so with the front desk staff at the Union Bluff. There just so happened to be a wedding the night before ours with the same last name as mine. What are the chances? My last name isnt 'Smith' or something super common. So that caused a ton of confusion. Also, there was an issue with the gift bags for our guests. Obviously, Darlene saved the day for the guest bag situation. All in all, I loved it here, would recommend it to future brides and I can't wait to return to the hotel for our one year anniversary.
