When my husband and I got married, this is what we were looking for. We were turned off by big halls. We ended up celebrating our wedding with a tent in my brother-in-law's backyard garden. It would have been great if it were a weekend affair in a charming coastal New England town.

Kristen Bifulco, owner and innkeeper of the Camden Windward House B&B in mid-coast Maine, has launched a destination wedding website, Mycamdenwedding.com.
The new website assists brides in planning a wedding in Camden, one the most photographed coastal villages in Maine-popularly known as the Jewel of the Maine Coast.
The site features four signature, wedding packages unique to the natural surroundings of Camden:: Ocean View Weddings, Mountain Top Weddings, Coastal Garden Weddings and B&B Weddings.
Ocean View Weddings feature ceremonies aboard a schooner, in front of a lighthouse, on the beach or at the yacht club. Bridal parties can choose to dine aboard ship or picnic on an island with a Maine lobster bake.
For a Mountain Top Wedding, couples exchange vows atop 1300 foot, Mt. Battie with views of the harbor and downeast to Cadillac Mountain. The summit is home to the famous "kissing rock" from the classic movie, "Payton Place" and a verse from Camden's romantic poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay, carved in the granite. An elopement mountain venue includes Maiden's Cliff overlooking Lake Megunticook or the summit of Ragged Mountain with vistas to Penobscot Bay.
The Coastal Garden Wedding packages feature private gardens, Harbor Park and the Bok Amphitheater at the head of the harbor, and theVesper Children's Chapel in Rockport overlooking Penobscot Bay. The village foot bridge at Tannery Lane with its cascading waterfall and flowering shrubs is a favorite spot for wedding photos.
A B&B Wedding is for bridal parties desiring privacy after a ceremony at a white-steepled church or backyard garden. Camden is home to twelve premier inns, most of which are listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. The Bifulco's Camden Windward House Inn is an 1854 Victorian home with Greek Revival features. It is nearby the Bok Amphitheater and the trailhead to Mount Battie. A July 7, 2007 wedding at the Windward House was recently mentioned in a New York Times vacation escape article. The bride had reserved the Windward House B&B sight unseen.
Pricing for the wedding packages for parties of 20 to 100 is available on-line. Mycamdenwedding.com offers wedding planning tools and advice, access to local wedding services, wedettiquette, honeymoon and mini-moon packages.
