Today, I had the pleasure of meeting Grace Ormonde, of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Marriage Magazines, at a newly opened venue in Stockton Springs, Maine. Local vendors who advertise with Grace were invited to dine at a 4-course luncheon on the patio (until a fast-moving storm chased us inside!), sipping summertime drinks and listening to fantastic music while taking in the breath-taking views.
The Retreat at French's Point is an historic setting that used to be a church retreat in the 1800's. The Brooks family bought the property in 2002 and painstakingly restored it, down to every last detail! The estate's interior is as equally gorgeous. If you're looking to host a destination wedding in Maine, I have a feeling this is going to be the new "it" spot. It can accommodate up to 300, and there is some lodging on the grounds in a restored farmhouse.
