Ferry Ride to the Wedding

3:15 PM, July 26, 2019
Casco Bay Lines
56 Commercial Street, Portland, ME 04101

In order to get to the wedding venue - The Inn on Peaks Island - all guests must take a 15 minute ferry ride. All ferries depart from Casco Bay Lines located on Commercial Street in Portland, two blocks away from the Hampton Inn. The ferry runs very true to schedule and costs $8 for a roundtrip ferry ticket. Upon landing on Peaks Island, The Inn is about 100 yards up the road.

Please know that all guests must take the 3:15pm ferry in order to make it to the ceremony on time. The ferry will leave exactly at 3:15pm so do not be late.

Tickets cannot be purchased online. They must be purchased in person. It is highly recommended that guests purchase their tickets on Thursday or Friday morning. If not, all guests are asked to arrive at Casco Bay Lines by 2:45pm on Friday afternoon to ensure tickets are purchased before the ferry departs.

All ferry tickets are roundtrip to Peaks Island and therefore a ticket is not needed for the ride back to Portland at the end of the evening. The ferries run every hour and the DJ will announce departing ferries from Peaks Island 15 minutes in advance. The reception will end with enough time for all guests to catch the 10:55pm ferry back to Portland.

Please note that parking in downtown Portland is pricey and will be extremely limited. We encourage all of our guests to take an Uber, Lyft or taxi to Casco Bay Lines if possible. There is a parking garage at Casco Bay Lines, but it will likely be full by noontime. If you plan on driving, please note that most other lots are a few blocks away. You can download the Parkopedia app to see what other parking options are available, or visit the link below.

You are welcome to bring alcohol along for the ferry ride, as there are no open container laws on the water. Please just make sure you finish and discard your beverages on the boat before being dropped off at Peaks Island.

The Wedding

4:00 PM, July 26, 2019
The Inn on Peaks Island
33 Island Ave, Peaks Island, ME 04108

Cocktail attire

Peaks Island is a small island off of Portland. As mentioned above, the island is a 15 minute ferry ride from Portland and The Inn is a few hundred feet away from the dock. The ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception will all take place at The Inn. When the reception ends, all guests will take the ferry back to Portland and keep the party going.

**Kelly and Danny have made the decision to make the wedding an adult-only party. They hope this advanced notice will give families plenty of time to make arrangements for parents to enjoy a night out. If you need any recommendations for babysistters in the Portland area, please contact Kelly and Danny and they will be happy to point you in the right direction. Thank you in advance for your understanding.**
