"The Union Bluff Meeting House is an amazing venue! I got married there on July 15th, and it was such a wonderful day - all thanks to the amazing staff! Amy Sallese was my coordinator, and she went above and beyond to make sure my big day was a success. She was there for me every step of the way
with great vendor recommendations, food tastings, checklists, etc. And on my wedding day, she was there to make sure everything ran smoothly (and she made sure me and my husband ate something - that was huge!). It was a perfect day - we got married on the lawn, had cocktail hour on the patio, and had the reception in the ballroom. I highly recommend getting married here!"

From the second we walked in to the front doors of the Meeting House we knew this would be the best place for our wedding. Our first meeting with Darlene she made us instantly feel like family. As it should be whether you are two men, two women, a man and a women she treated us as a couple in love wanting to have the perfect wedding. Once we chose the Meeting House as our venue Darlene listened to every little detail of what we wanted. The execution on our special day was flawless (even with last minute changes). Every recommendation she made, the DJ, photographer, florist were the right choices for us. Having your ceremony on the lawn with the beautiful ocean backdrop made for stunning pictures. Most of our guests stayed at the Union Bluff Hotel which was so convenient for out of state travelers. My wife and I would recommend anyone looking for the best wedding experience to contact Darlene and her team for your special day.

There are no words to express how incredible the Union Bluff Meeting House was for our wedding! Amy was our coordinator and she was amazing. Throughout the whole planning process she was so responsive and helpful, and always made time to meet with us when we were in town. On the wedding day, she came to the bridal suite numerous times to check on me and to show me pictures of everything being set up downstairs. This was super helpful! I honestly didn't feel like I needed to worry about anything because she was so on top of it. Even the staff throughout the night were so attentive, and made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hand and food to eat. We were gently reminded when we were supposed to be somewhere or do something, and it never felt like we were being dragged around. The after party at the Union Grill was also great, and the food was delicious! I could go on and on about how great this venue is, and I highly recommend it for anyone's wedding!

Best venue out there
If you are looking for a gorgeous beach or ocean venue or trying to go for a nautical theme there is no venue more perfect! Honestly there are too many good things to say about this venue that I can't even write them. My wedding day was truly exactly what I wanted and perfect thanks to this beautiful venue and their wedding planner Darlene! Seriously Darlene takes care of everything! I can be a bit of a control freak and went to the reception to put decor where I wanted it, but I didn't have to touch a single thing. Darlene had already gone above and beyond and made the room perfect! Any wedding disaster or if anything goes wrong Darlene is on it and fixes it before you can even freak out...Every bride needs that on her wedding day! My guests are raving over how beautiful the venue was inside and out and how great the food was! Sometimes wedding food isn't the best because it's cooked in bulk, but let me tell you our food was perfectly cooked! Guests said the filet minion was best they ever had, harvest stuffed chicken was nice and moist, and the butternut squash raviolis (vegetarian) were tasty! I could go on and on about this place. So if you want the best and most beautiful venue for wedding look no further than the Union Bluff!

If you are looking to have the most perfect venue, then you MUST book at the Union Bluff. To start out with, Amy Sallese was the most AMAZING wedding coordinator we could ever ask for. We had a longer engagement, so I was constantly emailing her with questions and advice. She always got back to me so quickly, and was the most helpful person throughout the crazy planning. She made all of my annoying questions seem like no big deal at all. On the actual day, there were so many different things going on, and Amy made sure that nothing ruined the day. She checked in with me, my husband, the bridesmaids, and groomsmen and got whatever we needed when getting ready. After the ceremony and pictures, she had food waiting for my husband and I, and of course, champagne. The food was absolutely amazing, the reception was perfect, and our guests have NOT stopped talking about how amazing Union Bluff is. The staff went above and beyond for our perfect day during the ceremony, reception, and of course the after party! I wish I could redo the whole day over again because of how perfect it was. This place is just stunning, but the staff members make it even better. You are crazy if you don't get married here!

Darlene Yankura Director of Events
Originally from upstate NY, I have vacationed in York Beach every year since birth, so this town holds some amazing memories for me, and is definitely my happy place and home! I graduated from Rensselaer (RPI) with a major in business management and a minor in marketing. I moved to York in 1997 and have been working for the Bluff ever since. Upon my insistence that this town needed a function hall, the owners finally gave in and let me create the Meeting House. We opened it in 2007. It has been a dream come true, and I am proud to have been able to make such a change in this town. I love being able to help create so many new memories for my couples and for others! I love the anticipation of a wedding day and the satisfaction of knowing I did all I could to make it perfect! I am definitely a type A personality and carry that into work more than home. This makes my boss very happy, and my man not so much…lol! Though I was lucky and found a guy that doesn’t mind picking up the slack at home…phew!
