The Press and UNION were the perfect choice for our small intimate wedding. We were able to create a 'her' and 'his' drink choice that reflected our favorite drinks, the cocktail hour with fresh seafood offerings was amazing. We were able to customize our menu and dessert options, the chef came out prior to our main entree being served, which was such a nice touch to make us feel even more special. When my husband and I walked into the UNION after taking photos across the street at City Hall the staff at the UNION and other guests were clapping and cheering for us; we were overwhelmed with such joy. The event coordinator/manager, Anna met with us about a month prior to discuss the space and food options and kept in touch often as time came closer. Everything was wonderful and stress free as a wedding should be when you are celebrating the best day of your lives! Peter and I will most definitely recommend the UNION and Press to friends and family; the dining experience is upscale, fine dining with amazing food creativity and atmosphere.

We were looking for a venue in Portland, ME that would be able provide it all; event space, catering and rooms for the guests….but that didn’t have that “generic hotel” feel to it. The atmosphere, aesthetic and tone of the Press Hotel was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. From our first meeting with Crystal, we knew we were in good hands. Crystal helped us navigate the planning process and what a savior she was, as we had little free time between busy careers and grad school. She kept us on track and helped us with the little details that tied it all together. To say she went above and beyond would be an understatement. Crystal and the chefs at Union helped us craft all the food for the cocktail hour and dinner at the reception. Everything looked wonderful and tasted even better, and as most couples claim, they didn’t get to eat at their wedding…that was not the case here! We enjoyed every bite! The chefs at Union also created our wedding cake and as someone who is a dessert fanatic they did not disappoint! They served up tiny individual cakes with gelato on the side, it was a fun spin on “cake and ice cream”. And the reception favors! I still get texts asking “where can I buy those pumpkin whoopie pies” five months later. The staff during the cocktail hour and reception were outstanding. I think my father put it best when he said, he didn’t notice they were there, yet his wine glass was never empty! When we got our photos back we were floored at how beautiful everything looked. Clare Norton Photography was just outstanding. Clare did an amazing job at capturing the whole day for us, she is a real pro! I can’t say enough great things about the Press Hotel, Crystal, the chefs and the staff. We were so happy with every aspect of the day, it was absolutely perfect!

My husband and I chose The Press Hotel for our wedding for many reasons, but mostly because of the feeling we got when we walked through the doors. The people are welcoming, professional and attentive. The atmosphere is upscale/modern with a warm and comfortable feel. The food... Oh the food! We could go on and on about how the delish mix of local food and flavors inspired our guests to come back again following our wedding. Our experience working with Crystal and Anna was unmatched! They met our every need, surprised us with all the little details we didn't think of and made sure our wedding was a weekend we'll never forget. The Press Hotel is a gorgeous gem set in the heart of a beautiful coastal city! It's a venue you absolutely must consider!
