"I am even more in love with this place after our wedding and was totally blown away by the service we received. When you choose YHI for your wedding, you do not just an amazing venue, but you get an amazing group of wedding staff who truly work so hard to make your wedding perfect. Cheyenne helped us every step of the way with planning our wedding and was so available to answer my many questions and help provide her recommendations. She helped keep me sane during hectic wedding planning! Gregg and his banquet staff were absolutely amazing. My wedding guests were blown away with how amazing the food and service was at our wedding. Each entree comes out as a full size entree- none of our wedding guests were hungry after their meal. Paul was an excellent coordinator day of our wedding. I did not have to worry about anything. Paul took care of everything! During the wedding, Paul helped to make sure that everything moved along, that we didn't get stuck at guest tables and that our guests had everything they needed. Everything at the YHI was beautiful and made our wedding perfect.All of the staff pays attention to detail and we truly felt like all of the staff was just as excited about our wedding as we were. Looking back at our wedding, I would not do a single thing differently and in large this is due to the staff at YHI. Absolutely amazing." ~ Samantha & Austin, June 2017
"GET MARRIED HERE! The venue is gorgeous, the food is incredible, and the planning crew is the BEST there is. Cheyenne, Greg, and "Uncle" Paul will make everything about your wedding perfect." ~ Fallon & Jason, July 2017
"We had our wedding at the York Harbor Inn and cannot say enough great things about the venue and the incredible staff. Paul, Greg and Cheyenne are the A-team. Our friends and family were so impressed with them. Their support goes way above and beyond the norm for a wedding venue. They were incredibly responsive and helpful through the entire planning process and once we arrived the day before our wedding, they took literally everything off of our plates. We were able to thoroughly enjoy the entire weekend without worrying about a single vendor or detail! In addition to the YHI's amazing staff, this venue is just absolutely stunning. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it. It's everything we hoped for when we dreamed of our wedding day! The food is AMAZING. At least half of our guests commented specifically that this was the best wedding food they had ever had. Several went above that praise and said it was the best steak they had ever had anywhere! Finally, we had a small wedding of about 30 guests. While it is abundantly clear that the YHI would do an incredible job with larger weddings (they have a ballroom with capacity for a much larger wedding than ours!) it meant so much to us that they gave us the same care and attention for our intimate wedding. They really made our vision come to life and we are so thankful that we chose this venue for our special day." ~ Sabrina & John, June 2017
"My husband and I had our wedding reception at York Harbor Inn on June 23rd. The entire team at York Harbor Inn could not have been any more wonderful. They were professional, attentive, and so much fun! My husband and I loved meeting with Cheyenne, Paul, and Greg throughout the wedding planning process - they were fantastic and thought of everything!! They truly helped us with everything and our wedding was wonderful! All of our guests loved the food, and they had a great time! The YHI team is fantastic and will ensure you have an incredible experience!" ~ Amanda & Dan, June 2017
"If you are looking for the perfect waterfront venue in Southern Maine, this is it. We got married at York Harbor Inn (YHI) in July 2017 and had the most incredible experience. Every single thing was perfection. First, let's talk about YHI's #1 asset: their event staff. We chose this venue in large part because the staff, a team of three, has worked together at this venue for years. That speaks volumes in the wedding world. Cheyenne is the friendliest, happiest, bubbliest person you will ever meet. We were in constant contact with her throughout the planning process. She knew our wedding inside and out and helped us all along the way. We wanted to bring in a photobooth in a vintage camper, but needed space to park it and a place to plug it in. I sent a video of the camper over to Cheyenne and she was just as excited about it as we were and came up with a bunch of ways to make it work.
Greg is the banquet manager and amateur videographer extraordinaire! We met Greg at our tasting and talked through all the food with him. Ultimately, we selected the salmon and filet mignon. YHI cooks the food to serve, so your food comes out perfectly cooked and hasn't been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. At the details meeting on Friday, Greg asked if he could make a fun video of our wedding and put it on social media. I'd seen his other videos, so we wholeheartedly agreed. The video he made was so fun!
And then there's Paul. Paul is your day-of, go-to guy. He knows his wedding stuff better than any wedding coordinator I've ever seen (and I've seen my fair share). I plan events for a living and had very little trouble handing over the reigns to him on my wedding day. We also just had SO MUCH FUN working with him. He fit in so well with the humor of our wedding party, family, and friends... you would have thought he was with the crew! He treated us like royalty throughout the weekend (mimosas for the bridal party on Saturday morning!). I can't thank him enough for making us feel so special from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.
Notes on the venue itself: we wanted to get married on the ocean, so the Hartley Mason Reserve, a public park across the street from YHI, was ideal. We had a very short ceremony with a lemonade/iced tea/flavored water stand in the park. Our guests loved it! We had the cocktail hour in the main dining room (the appetizers are to die for), and then moved into the ballroom for the reception. The ballroom is decorated very tastefully in gold tones (neutral), with a huge vaulted skylight above the dance floor. We had them string twinkle lights and it looked perfect! And this place is so reasonably priced compared to the others we looked at. You get FAR more than you pay for with YHI. I'm not sure I can speak more highly of this venue and, more importantly, the staff. The staff were just as much a part of this event as my family and friends. YHI needs to do whatever it takes to keep those three around. We will be going back to visit them for years and years to come." ~ Lindsay & Matt, July 2017
