Where to Elope in Maine
Maine is THE BEST. It's such a gem tucked away as the most northeastern state and few people have the pleasure of visiting, let alone claiming it as the state they eloped in. Maine sees the first rays of daylight in the continental United States. Venture to Maine and you'll find yourself in awe of the rugged, rocky coast, the endless greenery, a stunning National Park, adventures around every bend, and maybe you'll even see a moose! Plus, lobster. C'mon.

Things to keep in mind when eloping in Maine:
Will you need to obtain a permit for your ceremony location? 90% of Maine is privately owned. For instance, if you plan to elope in Acadia National Park, you'll need to apply for a permit with the park.
In Maine, there is no waiting period from the time you get your marriage license til the time your ceremony can take place! However, the license is only valid for 90 days.
Anyone can marry you in Maine. If you want a friend to get ordained online for free in two seconds, they can marry you. You just need the officiant and two witnesses to sign and you're good to go!
The weather can be unpredictable. Make sure you plan for cold weather even in the summer.
