    Wonderful Wonderful!

    I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with the Bayview. We had a small reception on the rooftop, overlooking the Bay. Our guests noted that it topped their wedding lists for best ever attended in terms of views, service and food! Andrea knocked it out of the park with gourmet cuisine. Erick also was amazing with his planning. Ours guests also complimented their craft cocktails. We highly recommend this venue for thoughtful touches!

    Perfect Day

    Because of Covid, our destination wedding was cancelled and we were in a time crunch to find a new venue so we could still get married in our wedding date. Audrey helped us make the day absolutely perfect at 16 Bay View, where we had both the ceremony and reception. It was so beautiful, I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Audrey, all of the bartenders and waitresses and the chef turned it out with their service and kindness. I couldn’t recommend this place enough.

    16 Bay View's reply:

    Congratulations to you and Travis!! I am so sorry that your destination wedding was cancelled but very glad that you were still able to celebrate with close friends and family :) Everyone was happy, having fun, and made me and our staff feel SO appreciated. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!!

    The best spot for a Maine wedding!

    We cannot say enough great things about 16 Bay View and all the help Audrey gave us in planning our special day along the way! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous; we had our reception at The View, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The chef also worked with us to form our perfect menu for the day based on what we wanted! The food was a HUGE highlight of the day, and it also felt very personal to us as a couple since there were several of our favorite dishes. Finally, I CANNOT say enough great things about how wonderful Audrey and the rest of their team was to work with! We got married in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Audrey kept me looped in and reassured throughout, working with us to make sure we could still safely celebrate our day. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, and we were so unbelievably happy with how everything turned out! For a smaller wedding in Camden, there is no place better than The View.

    16 Bay View's reply:

    Brielle you are awesome! I was happy to help, you made it so easy and were so enjoyable to work with. I am so glad you had a perfect wedding weekend! Congratulations to you & Dennis and let me know when you want to visit Camden again! :)
