  It’s time to be dreaming of your wedding…wandering off on an adventure…escaping to mid-coast make a lifelong vow to your soul mate.


As you think of your loved ones and plan the event that will bring them together in a remarkably lovely setting, for your fabulous wedding,
just imagine this:

Come away from it all....catch your breath.
Six miles from the bustle of
Boothbay Harbor is a peaceful waterfront retreat, set among
rolling lawns, meandering stone walls and richly colored perennial gardens....a gorgeous frame for your lovely event....

There are a variety of gardens and sites for you to choose from...
under the apple tree near the pond....
in the 'chapel' on the green, under the gazebo....
at the top of the view-way, with wildflowers and the Back River as your backdrop....
by the rose garden, under the arbor....
in the Great Room, with views of the lawns, gardens and river....
in the historic barn....


....imagine a place that evokes your fondest memories....and brings your wedding dreams to bold colorful life....



Have your friends and family stay in a room in the elegant new Maine farmhouse…or in the charming newly-renovated 1800s Cape....or rent the whole building for your wedding group!

Wake to delicious coffee, birdsong in the apple trees and early morning fog on the Back
then enjoy a hearty, healthy breakfast...wander 15 acres of gardens and
woodland a kayak to paddle with local seals....
watch the Maine painted
turtles or listen to frogs on the freshwater pond....wander the park-like grounds....take a
cool dip in the cove or a sail on the river....visit the Boothbay peninsula….and the
Botanical  Gardens just 4 miles away….have a massage before the big event...

then begin to get ready for your 'destination wedding' in one of the most glorious spots on earth!!

We can help you plan your wedding from beginning to end...and we are delighted to be the destination site for wedding couples of all kinds. Maine has finally legalized same-sex marriage and we join you in embracing this possibility....
right here at the Bold Colorful Life Estate!


Here is what some of our brides say about the experience of
being married at the Bold Colorful Life Estate:


I know I told you before, but we had a great time.  So many people have commented on the venue (because it's the coolest ever).  I really think the vibe of the land and the bright decor brings out the best in people - at least that's what it does to me!  Thanks for being so hospitable.  

Best, Kara


I have to tell you how absolutely wonderful you have been to work with through all of this, Melissa. You've created such a fantastic atmosphere for me to plan this wedding through your kind observations and infectious energy! 

All the best, Lori


.....our wedding was hands down a dream, and it couldn't have been without you and the BCL Inn.  We are truly blessed to have had such an amazing memory and cannot thank you enough for sharing your space with us...

and our time with you during our wedding was pure magic... Something along the lines of this rainbow spotted on our last day with you...

Be well, stay in touch and best to you in 2013- Tyler

We're working on a new attraction on our 15 acre estate for 2018. It's going to be a 'Fairy Walk', where children (of all ages) can build fairy houses to their heart's content, and the walkway leads through the woods to a lovely pine-needle-covered picnic area. I'll be putting pictures of our progress on the main website soon.
