We had our Reception at the Nonantum Resort for our 178 guests on May 3rd & it could not have gone any better! Tim Ames was an incredible Coordinator from start to finish. He's very experienced, has a lot of great ideas & takes care of EVERYTHING so that the Bride and Groom don't have to worry about one thing! The location is beautiful right on the water, the food is well above your "typical wedding food" (we received MANY compliments), the staff went above & beyond and the accommodations were stunning. We could not have picked a more perfect location for our Reception & we were so lucky to have Tim as our Coordinator!
This past weekend, our daughter's wedding took place at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. It was magnificent! Tim Ames and the staff went to extraordinary lengths to make sure our day was stress free and all the little details were attended to. There was never a request that we made that wasn't fulfilled with ease. Tim assured that every aspect of the wedding was carried out with the utmost professionalism and care and that our "vision" of the day was what we saw in the reception room as we entered. It was just magical. The Nonantum was more than the perfect spot for our Kaitlin's special day and Tim and staff made the experience for us exceed all of our dreams and expectations..... and beyond. We will hold the memories of this day at the Nonantum in our hearts and minds forever with the greatest joy.
The staff at the Nonantum went over and above to ensure that our day was special. The room and food were perfect for the size of our party. The food was delicious. The hotel has a special casual classy feel to it. They more than welcomed our group of cyclists that had just ridden their bikes a few days to attend our wedding.
My husband and I could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding reception. From working with our wedding coordinator to the service at the reception, we were impressed beyond all measures. The staff made sure every need was met, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was incredible. The Nonantum Resort made our wedding reception a night we will never forget.
We stayed at the Nonantum in 2011 and absolutely fell in love with it. We kind of knew we would be back to look at it as a possible wedding location. When we got engaged and came back to look at the property, Timothy Ames gave us an amazing tour and made us feel at home. We booked our wedding at The Nonantum Resort about 11 months before our 8/23/2013 wedding. From beginning to end, Tim and Dawn were so great to work with. Everyone was so responsive to answer my questions! From setting up my centerpieces and decor to placing a napkin on my lap before I ate, they thought of every detail. The atmosphere is so deliciously New England and our pictures came out amazing on their property. All of our guests were so happy with the rooms, property and level of customer service. The food was raved about! I do not have one complaint about the entire process and I can't recommend The Nonantum Resort enough! They are truly an amazing staff of people that will take the time to know you. We can't wait to go back for special occasions in the future.
We wanted to get married in Maine since that's where I've lived for many years and looked at a few different places around Portland. We decided to go with Nonantum because the place was just beautiful and we wanted to have ceremony and reception in the same place. It was the best decision we've made! Dawn is the best wedding coordinator. Her and the staff mad sure everything was perfect that day and We ended up almost completely stress free which is what we wanted! Beautiful place and a good value! Highly recommend!
My husband and I were married in July 2012 at the Nonantum and truly had our dream wedding. Our ceremony was on sight by the quaint lighthouse on the water and our reception was inside the ballroom. Our guests loved the cocktail hour outside, bar by the patio and the opportunity to explore the grounds throughout the reception.
The staff was a dream to work with and perfectly executed my vision.
The food was fantastic! We had a lot of guests tell us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding.
For a dream Maine coastal wedding look no further than the Nonantum!
Words cannot fully describe how wonderful our wedding day was at Nonantum! From the time we first met with Tim and Dawn through the wedding day, the staff at the Resort was attentive, responsive, accommodating, friendly, helpful, and more than willing to ensure that our day was one to remember. A particularly nice (and unplanned) touch was the golf cart ride over to the sloop that took my husband and me to the reception. That moment made for some great pictures!
The food was beyond wonderful. All of our guests still comment at how delicious the selections well. Try the live action seafood selection for a particularly unique experience. Our out of state guests absolutely loved the fresh seafood.
All-in-all, Nonatum Resort will provide complete and superior service for your wedding day needs.
Our wedding was stunning. We had an outdoor tented wedding this past August and it was beautiful. The Sperry tent was placed right next to the water, and the setting was perfect. The view from our table in the tent was amazing. They property provides adirondack chairs that line the water and it is great additional seating for guest to hang out outside the tent. Tim Ames- the event coordinator for the hotel, was so helpful with the set-up and gave great suggestions. The food was also delicious and the cook was very accommodating to any suggestions or tweaking to items. The hotel all around is a great place for your guests to stay. Absolutely perfect day, no complaints what so ever. Couldn't have imagined a more beautiful setting and nice people to work with!
My husband and I went to the Nonantum Resort in April of 2012, the resort it self wasn't fully open but Timothy Ames was very welcoming and very excited to show us the property. We both instantly fell in love with the location, the staff and thus our dream wedding started to take shape. Tim was always available to us day or night. He provided guidance throughout the wedding planning. The day of our wedding arrived and every little detail was executed perfectly. We highly recommend the Nonantum, Timothy Ames and the staff. They made our dream day a reality!!!
My husband and I got married on Sunday, July 1, 2012 at the Nonantum Resort and it could not have been more perfect! We had an outdoor ceremony by the lighthouse, an outdoor cocktail reception, and dinner and dancing with a live band inside. We still hear from our guests how fabulous our wedding was! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful and there was so much to do both at the resort and within walking distance in town! The intimacy of having everyone stay on location coupled with the guests having so many choices of activities within walking distance both before and after the wedding made it exceptional. From the bride's perspective, it was also incredible because of the wedding planner we had at the Nonantum who helped us from beginning to end...from suggesting and recommending excellent vendors to taking care of every detail from helping the musicians and vendors set up, giving us space for photos, a room to prepare the flowers, a get-ready room to have our hair and make up done, helping us stay on schedule, all the while making the whole thing seem easy! The whole day came off seamlessly and it was a gorgeous location to boot with incredible light and views. I could go on and on but my husband and I won't soon forget this magical place by the sea in Kennebunkport where we tied the Knot! We recommend it wholeheartedly! To everyone at the Nonantum--you really are the best! Katherine and Jeff
When my fiancé and I were planning our wedding we had one stipulation- we wanted to get married on the water. I am from New England, I was born in Maine, but grew up in Massachusetts. My sister's best friend was married at the Nonantum and had suggested that I look at it for my venue. When we went to meet with Tim at the Nonantum I fell in love. The environment is so heavenly with the ocean view and the town of Kennebunkport and Kennebunk itself is the perfect place to host a wedding weekend. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. Every person not only in the ballroom, but the staff at the hotel approached me to give me a genuine compliment or just comment on the wedding. It was truly a vacation not only for my now husband and I, but all of our guests. Guests were able to lounge in the Adirondack chairs or take a nice walk to the downtown area. We also went kayaking right from the dock at the resort and my husband and all the boys went on a lobster boat tour. There are so many things to do that during the "down time" your guests will be entertained. We had the trolley service to Federal Jacks brewery after the wedding and everyone loved it which was convenient and allowed for us to continue the party! I know that everyone says that their wedding weekend was the best weekend ever, but it truly was and that is because of our location. I cannot stop looking at my photos and I will forever be grateful to Tim and the staff at the Nonantum!
We had the most perfect wedding at the Nonantum. We will remember that day for the rest of our lives. The day could not have been more perfect and I have to say that the team at the Nonantum took care of every little detail to ensure our day was unforgettable. Our wedding was a little getaway for our guests and they spent the weekend at the Nonantum. The accommodations were spectacular and cozy. This November, we will be celebrating our 1st anniversary and have to say our guests still comment on how wonderful the weekend and venue were. We will be sure to visit the Nonantum often as it has become like a second home to me :)
Loved my wedding. It was a beautiful fall day, my wedding coordinator Dawn was fantastic and always helpful. Would not change anything.
Living locally, when the time came for me to think about a wedding, there was no hesitation but to speak with Tim at the Nonantum Resort. We held my parents' 50th anniversary celebration there 6 years ago and everything was perfect then! Nothing has changed but only gotten better - being a bride of not being in my 20's, my fiance and I were looking for a less traditional celebration - but with all the class and elegance available. The location is without a doubt the best - on the water, boats coming and going past; the inside was decorated for fall in such a beautiful way - and the staff is amazing, calming and so easy to work with! It is the top place with top employees and we couldn't have had a more perfect wedding!!
My husband and I were married last October at the Nonantum and it could not have been a more perfect experience. Tim was our weddng planner/coordinator and he was amazing. He oversaw all the wedding details and even made sure my husband and I were able to have a glass of wine at the cocktail hour! The accommodations are beautiful. The venue room is stunning. And the food in incredible. The staff accommodated to all of our needs and wants.
My husband and I got married at The Nonantum May 26, 2013. I can not express how amazing our experience was with the staff throughout the planning process. We started off with Tim as our coordinator and he was fabulous! He gave us a tour of the resort and explained everything they were able to offer us to be used for our wedding. I loved that the Nonantum pricing was right there on the website to see first hand, knowing that this venue would be in our budget. We then had our food tasting with Dawn, and she became our coordinator. The food tasting was an incredible experience!! We were able to taste everything we asked for and the chef even added an extra appetizer for us to try. I personally gave my suggestions/changes to the chef and they were followed through with at the reception :). I loved that we were able to give 4 entree options to offer guests at the reception. Dawn gave us great ideas for food options for the end of the night, and it was a hit! Everyone was talking about how the food just kept coming out, and it was perfect because at the end of the night they were getting hungry again. Dawn was beyond incredible to work with! She was there every step of the way all the way until the end of the reception. I loved that the Nonantum staff stayed by our side throughout pictures with some appetizers and our drinks... a staffer even cleaned the guys shoes because they were getting wet! I can't express how amazing the whole staff was that day. The ballroom was decorated just as I had hoped, plus some. It easily fit our 165 guests comfortably. I would recommend this venue to everyone who wants a seaside wedding. The accommodations, food, view, staff, is simply amazing and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day! Thank you! Maria & Justin Martin
I spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect venue that had a classic New England feel. After looking up and down the coast, I feel in love with The Nonantum right away. From our very first tour to our actual wedding day they have been so helpful and even went above and beyond all my expectations. My mother in law was in the hospital the week before our wedding and literally got out the day before. The staff was so attentive to her needs, getting her a wheelchair and so much more. We did not have to worry about her at all on our big day because the staff was so wonderful. The service combined with the scenery and amazing food - seriously you can't go wrong. Just call them already.
The staff of the nonantum made our winter wedding more magnificent than we could have ever imagined! I could not thank them enough! Working with Tim Ames was such a pleasure. He paid such close attention to detail and put me at ease. Seeing the ballroom set up for the reception took my breathe away. What I was picturing in my head, he made happen and then some! Poinsettias, Christmas trees, fireplaces burning, candles, glittery snow and Nonantum gingerbread men cookie favors. It was truly magical!
The chef was also a joy. He met with us on multiple occasions to sample items from the menu. We loved everything so much, we couldn't make up our minds! The clam chowder was the best I've ever had in my 20+ years of vacationing in Maine. Date topaz, out of this world. People say you don't eat at your wedding, I made sure I did!
Our guests are still talking about what a beautiful wedding we had. I really can't say enough wonderful things about the Nonantum and it's staff. Top notch, extremely professional and eager to please. It's a place my husband and I continue to visit every time we're in Maine, and we plan on spending our anniversaries there for many years to come!
Fabulous, amazing, beautiful, helpful, laid back, reassuring... I could just go on. Every single guest is still raving about their experience and I am still reflecting on how every detail was attended to.
I cannot thank the staff enough. Positively wonderful! We wish we could have everyone back up and throw another party at the Nonantum.
