Hello Fellow Trip Advisors, I'm hoping that some of you might be able to provide some much needed advise and information. My partner of over 30 years and I are planning on getting married in Bar Harbor in October, in a small, private, civil ceremony. We are coming in via a cruise on Holland America's Ms. Veendam in October 2013, and would appreciate any suggestions on making this day memorable.
I've researches the list of Officials in Bar Harbor Maine, and have contacted the Town Clerk's Office about getting our license and am trying to plan a small, quiet, short ceremony for the one day we will be in Bar Harbor. Our time will be very limited (7 hours at the most) and would like to have as simple a ceremony as possible, within easy walking distance (okay, we're older with creaky knees and hips, but not on walkers yet!!) from the Town Pier where the cruise tenders come in.
I had thought about doing something in one of the town's parks (i.e., Agamont Park, Village Green or Grant Park) if this would be feasible. Or I'm open to suggestions for a cozy indoor venue. There will only be myself, my partner, two witnesses and the wedding official in the wedding party, and I'd like it to be classy, simple and intimate on a very limited budget. I know that's a challenge, but I'm hoping some of you have good suggestions.
