My fiance and I are looking to get married next summer - August 3, 2013 and we are struggling to find a venue for our ceremony. I think we've basically decided on the reception location, but we're really having a hard time working in the cermony venue as well - which, for me, is the most important part. We really want to have it on the coast, outdoors, in Southern Maine, preferably the Saco-area. I originally wanted to have the ceremony on the actual beach, but that doesn't look like we can make it work, so anything that has views of the ocean or water, outdoors would work for us. The problem I'm running into is that most places tend to require you to have the reception there as well or are so much more expensive than we can swing.
Does anyone have any suggestions for outdoor ceremony venues that can fit 100-150 people, on the water, and that won't break the bank? We both just really want outside, green, fresh-air!
