"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!" Amy C. 7/15/18

"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." Suzie L. 9/16/18

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!
Likes: Ice cream, Louis Vuitton, Coconut flavored anything
Downtime Fun: Vacations, sailing, beach time, family time

Amy Sallese, Event Coordinator
Hello! I’m Amy Sallese, one of the Event Coordinators here at the Union Bluff Meeting House. I started working here about five years ago. After graduating from Saint Anselm College, I moved back home to Watertown, MA and started working for a company in Woburn. I worked there for two years and just never felt passionate about my work. After much soul-searching, I decided to quit my job and move to Portsmouth, NH…. And what an amazing and life changing decision that was! Soon after my move, I started working at the Meeting House and I am absolutely loving every minute of it! Living in Portsmouth and working in York is the best of both worlds!
Likes: Dogs, sushi, chocolate ice cream, dogs, red wine, traveling, boats, and oh, did I mention dogs?
Downtime fun: hanging with friends and family, going out to dinner, spending time with my adorable nephews and niece, snowboarding, catching up on the latest episode of Below Deck, attempting to walk my adorably fresh dog, Gus, and sitting on the beach (weather permitting).
Motto: “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”
