About Us

We invite you to consider the many advantages of holding a wedding or celebration at Southern Maine Community College.

Our breathtaking 80 – acre campus has two distinct water view locations for receptions – the Oceanview Dining Center and Spring Point Field. These “blank slate” properties allow guests to select their preferred event vendors, while enjoying stunning views of Casco Bay and two of Maine’s premier lighthouses. A wedding ceremony on top of Fort Preble Bunker is unmatched in scenery by any other Maine venue.

If you would like SMCC to take a more hands-on approach, consider hosting your event at the McKernan Center. Developed as a hands-on training facility, allow our professional Event Manager guide your event for up to 100 reception guests and stay in one of the convenient guest rooms located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of our facility. The mission style historic building and views of Casco Bay truly make this an ideal location for your Maine wedding. Events at the McKernan Center are guided by a professional event manager and our executive chef, with support from students studying in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management professions.

All locations here on campus offer extraordinary waterfront access with stunning views of the islands of Casco Bay, including direct views of the area historic lighthouses and forts. These reception sites are quintessential Maine.

For more information, or to set up a tour, please contact the Conferences & Events Department at SMCC.
