Wedding Attire

A lot people have been asking about what is appropriate to wear to the wedding, so we thought it would be a good idea to make some suggestions.

The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception will all be outdoors, rain or shine. The areas will be tented if it is raining. There are no paved paths on the island, so stiletto heels are probably not a great idea. Also, even though it is in Maine, it could be hot/sunny so black suits are discouraged.

For most guests, your visit will be bracketed by boat rides, which can be chilly even on a warm day. The ride back to Portland will be at night, so you’ll be glad you have a suit jacket/blazer for gentlemen or a sweater or shawl for ladies.

We would like to encourage people to stick with the color scheme of the wedding if possible. We are wearing white/ivory, blues, aquas, greens, browns and grays.


Marriage License

Last trip to Maine before the wedding…

Yesterday we took what we hope will be our last trip up to Maine before the wedding.

Murphy enjoyed the drive, the day was hot, but beautiful. Punctuated by sun showers and steaming roads.




We visited the Town Clerk in Cumberland to pick up our marriage license. Thanks to Chad’s preparation the visit went  smoothly.

Billy signing the paperwork!






We visited the Snell Family Farm where we discussed flowers for the ceremony and reception decorations.









We visited the boat dock in Falmouth where we will park for the weekend. It’s also the place that will be receiving all of the deliveries of supplies that we need to stock the island with…including tents, tables, chairs, ice etc…
