First, what’s a micro wedding anyway? A micro wedding is a very small, but yet intimate, celebration with normally less than 50 guests. Usually it’s exactly the same as a regular/ large wedding, in terms of the ceremony components, just on a smaller scale. A micro wedding is somewhat of a hybrid between a traditional ceremony and an elopement. 

As we all know, an elopement is usually  a very un-planned, and somewhat spur-of-the-moment, ceremony. 

Before Covid-19, micro weddings were becoming a trend. Most couples view a micro wedding as a great way to focus on what really matters and to cut down on your wedding budget. In 2018, the average cost of a wedding ceremony was $38,000! Our all-inclusive, but yet totally customizable, micro wedding and elopement packages are the perfect way to have a stress- free, simple wedding that is a fraction of the cost of a traditional wedding. AND it’s really the only way to safely get married during the craziness of this pandemic. 

Starting at $925, our wedding packages include some very spectacular components: venue space on our rooftop deck, “The View” (or in the Curtis-Bok room)-overlooking the gorgeous Camden Harbor, an officiant, the brides bouquet & groom’s boutonniere from our neighbors on Main Street, Lily Lupine & Fern, a wedding cake, discounts on room bookings, and even a sit-down dinner prepared by Head Chef, Andrea Barbour, and much more. 

Beyond the financial and health & safety advantages of a micro-wedding, the real bonus is having a low stress, amazingly intimate wedding with just your nearest and dearest here in gorgeous Camden, Maine.  Honestly, what could be better than that?!
