Our Story
Joe & Bethany
Bethany was just starting her first year at the University of Maine, a friend of hers from high school who ended up at UMaine invited her and her friends to a house party just off campus. That's when Joe and Bethany met - he was playing a game with friends and they just said Hi to each other as they were introduced and then moved on with their nights. They did not see each other much actually, Bethany was new to campus and meeting people and figuring out college life, and Joe was starting his 3rd year and knew where everything was and who his friends were. Just before October break Joe and his roommates threw a party, the two of them had the to opportunity to talk a little but still went their separate ways without saying much. Then it was October break - Bethany went home to NH and Joe stayed at school; they talked the entire weekend! Not many people spend the long weekend on campus so it was very quiet - and Bethany's parents had sold their house so she was stuck at the house packing everything into boxes. By the time Bethany returned to campus a few days later the two had plans to see each other and they have been together ever since!

We want you to be able to relax and have fun with us! This in mind, we invite you to put down all your favorite devices and just be present in the moment with us.

Please leave your camera in your bag (we've got photography covered!), and put your cell phone away (we promise they'll call back!).

We're happy to share our professional wedding photos later, but the greatest gift you can give us today is just being fully here with us in this sacred and special moment.

In order to allow all guests, including parents, an evening of relaxation we have chosen for our wedding day to be an adult only occasion. We hope this advance notice means you are still able to share our big day and will enjoy having the evening off!
