Maine vs. Tennessee

I would like to say that this decision was the subject of much debate, but that would be a lie. Even though Sarah and I met and fell in love in the the beautiful Volunteer State, we have made a home for ourselves here in Maine. We deeply regret the fact that many of our loved ones will not be able to attend due to the time and expense of the trip, but because of complicated logistics, we simply must have the wedding in Portland. This obviously isn't a traditional ceremony. It's really more like theatre, which I guess is fitting since we met while working at one. There's a set that must be constructed, lighting and sound that must be designed, and umpteen bazillion details to coordinate.

But we would like to make a plea to everyone. Maine is a beautiful state. Every summer, legions of tourists swarm to us from all over the US and Canada. They come for our beaches, shopping, or simply to catch a glimpse of a moose. Think of our wedding as the kick-off or finale of a great vacation. At least give it some thought. We would really love to have you there.
