Downeast Elopement Activity Ideas for Spring/Summer/Fall

Updated: May 17, 2023

Your wedding day needn't be a performance or feel like an all-day photo shoot. I make it a priority to allow you a few breaks from the camera so that you can also just live in the moment and have an amazing time together. If posing all day isn't your cup of tea either, incorporate a few of these unique ideas for a one-of-a-kind wedding day experience. My goal is that you walk away from your wedding day thinking "WOW that was so much fun!" and receive a unique gallery of images to remember it by.

Scenic Flight of Acadia: 30 minutes

Take in the sights of Acadia from above and get fun/completely unique photos of your experience.

Stand-up Paddle Boarding of Kayaking

Add this to the end of your day for a "trash the dress" opportunity or just really amazing photos. You could also rent kayaks if you prefer a seated experience.

Private Boat Tour Around Acadia:

Enjoy a full-day, half day or sunset cruise in Bar Harbor on a private charter:

Take a horse drawn carriage ride through the park


Private or small gathering picnic complete with linens, flowers, treats & lobster rolls. The picnic provider does all the work and you just show up to enjoy!

Hire A Driver:

Nearly all of my clients have opted to hire a driver and recommend it to others. If you are visiting Acadia during the busy season or traveling with guests you will not regret this. Save time, skip the search for parking spaces, and forget about having to navigate! .

Get Ice Cream Or Stop off for a Beer!

Put a little fun into the day by stopping for an ice cream cone, trying on silly hats, or picking up a cheezy souvenir. Our cute little downtowns in Maine are full of fun opportunities to feel like a tourist.
