The Maine Event

When Keith Bisson and Beth Owen Bisson got married in Maine they tried to support the local community. Their wedding was held in the orchard of Maine Audubon's Gilsland Farm. On the alter they placed three oil lamps made by a local potter: one for Keith's parents, one for Beth's parents, and one for Keith and Beth's new home. For the cake, Keith's friends (who own Wild Oats Bakery in Brunswick) made a white cake with lemon curd and raspberry filling adorned with fresh flowers. Beth's mom and sister grew some of the flowers used in the ceremony, and Keith and Beth supplemented what the needed with organic flowers from Whole Foods. Beth and her family designed and assembled all of the floral arrangements including the women's bouquets and the men's boutonnières.

As with our wedding, Keith and Beth allowed their bridesmaids to wear any dress they liked and the men wore suits they already owned. Beth tied the dresses together by giving her maids scarves in complimentary hues. The soft spring colors looked wonderful!
