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.Sent on 10/21/2020

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.Sent on 10/10/2020

Perfect small wedding venue
The View is a rooftop bar/restaurant at the Bayview hotel, overlooking beautiful Camden harbor. We were very pleased with every aspect of this venue, from working with Audrey, the event coordinator, to the food and service. The Bayview is also a very fine hotel for guests to stay, and Camden has so much to offer, our 3 day weekend was not enough time to enjoy it all! This was a difficult year for wedding planning, and we were so appreciative of Audrey’s professionalism and responsiveness through it all.Sent on 09/20/2020
