Allison and Simon, who is Irish, convened in Kennebunkport for a seaside ceremony with guests from across the country and the world, including an unexpected local celebrity of sorts who, well, most certainly crashed their wedding. Scroll down to see who!
How they met, in Allison's words:
A long, long time ago. we met. Like really long... 1994, in fact. I was studying abroad as a junior in college when I met Simon who lived in the university apartment right across from mine. Since that year of fun, frolics, and friendship, we weaved in and out of each others lives many times before it stuck; I moved to Dublin after grad school, he was in NYC with me. Then he went onto Florida... and then, after deciding that we wanted a home, we both settled in Maine. When we first came here to visit, something just stuck, too.
An unexpected guest caused quite a stir.
Some overly excited to meet the former president. :)
Congratulations, Allison and Simon! Beautiful day for a beautiful couple!
