We like rustic, but we like elegant with it. After all, it is your wedding day!  Brides and grooms rest easy (and so does everyone else) when the catering is absolutely perfect: practiced, poised, fun, and accompanied by great food and beverages.  This setting is at Maine Lakeside Cabins, a private retreat center, on the shores of Wyman Lake. Idyllic place to get married, if we do say so ourselves!

See those hardwood floors? They "rock" for great dancing when the party gets going. This is where live entertainment plays on weekends year-round at Northern. Want to add live music for your special day - no problem!

From the mother-of-the-groom about her son's September wedding at Northern Outdoors:

My husband and I live in Georgia and visited Maine for the first time this past weekend to attend our son's wedding. His new wife grew up in Maine and their dream was for an adventurous weekend with family and friends in a beautiful setting. Northern Outdoors exceeded my expectations. The cabins were perfectly appointed and comfortable with beautiful views from every window. The wedding venue was gorgeous, overlooking the lake. We hosted the Welcome Party on Fri. night and everything was professionally done and presented so nicely AND the food was delicious. The reception dinner with lobster was fabulous. Northern Outdoors met every wish my son and daughter in law had of their perfect wedding. Many of the guests commented it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Thanks for memories to last forever. Sincerely, Peggy   (Roswell, GA)
Your Family Package was a great way to introduce our two suburban, TV loving children to the wonders of Maine. And, it didn't hurt that the whitewater rafting was more exciting than any theme park ride! Our family will definitely be back.

Just had the best time ever rafting the Kennebec. Will be back to do Dead River and the Penobscot. Thank you all for such a fantastic time. The staff/ guides are all stars. Hopefully see you all next year
