Seacoast Locales

Picture of wedding at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Prescott Park painting: one of many excellent Seacoast wedding venues

The seacoast region of New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts offers a variety of excellent wedding locales.  At the time I built this page (spring 2015), the information was current.  Some sites such as parks, forts, or summer chapels may require a bit of extra leg work to secure a date and time.  Other than the relatively new hotels in downtown Portsmouth, I’ve performed weddings in most of these locations and others besides.  Each has something distinct to offer and is worthy of your consideration.

These suggestions are based on my knowledge and experience.  I’ll be adding to and updating this page, so you may want to check back.  If you know of a wedding site that you feel ought to be included, let me know via email. ~David  > [davidphreaner [at] yahoo [dot] com]
