The bride was escorted by her father down a trail leading to a platform over Great Falls. She wore an above the knee white halter dress with a custom-made white silk coat with a chapel train. She carried a bouquet of red and blue roses and white tiger lilies wrapped with silver ribbon. Blue lilies framed her elbow-length veil and hanging on her necklace was her grandfather’s baby ring. Pinned inside her dress was her husband’s and his grandmother’s baptismal pins and a blue handkerchief.

Shawn Hutchinson, son of the couple, was best man, and Shawn Adams, late friend of the couple, was honorary best man. Joshua, Shane and Scott Brady, brothers of the bride, and Devin and Dana Griffin, nephews of the bride, were ushers.
A reception followed at the home of Mike and Joyce Brady in Pownal, after which the couple traveled to Foxboro, Mass., for the weekend to attend a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium. They are residing in Auburn with their son.
