White Barn Inn Schedule Your Wedding Around Lobster Season
While couples tend to select their wedding date based on the weather, I always joke that they should be factoring in the types of seafood that will be in season during their special day in Kennebunk. Historically a fishing village, Kennebunkport’s location along the Kennebunk River affords locals and visitors first pick of the freshest fare. Sea bass is best savored in the summer months, lobster is absolutely divine in the winter, and shrimp, oysters, and other types of shellfish are a must in the fall. A luxury that White Barn’s Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamonds restaurant delights in often— with a menu refreshed every week to incorporate the freshest fruits of the sea— make sure to ask the concierge to share the area’s boat schedules so that you can take full advantage of Maine’s ocean offerings, fresh out of the water.
