CAMDEN – The wedding of Kirsten Beth Sweet and Jesse Scott Richardson, both of Natick, Mass., was held on Nov. 8 at the Norumbega Inn. The Rev. Russell Peppe officiated at the 4 p.m. ceremony.

The bride and bridegroom were given in marriage by their parents, Gordon and Susan Sweet of Auburn, Ellen Richardson of Brooklyn, N.Y., and John Richardson of Hewlett, N.Y.

The bride wore a floor-length strapless diamond-white satin gown with fitted bodice that swept in soft folds across the back and fastened down the side with tiny buttons. The a-line skirt extended into a chapel-length train. Her gown was complemented with a red shawl, necklace and earrings and she carried long-stemmed calla lilies in fall colors.

Her sisters, Kellie Sweet Ciesielski, Kimberlie Sweet and Karrie Sweet, attended her and each carried a single calla lily.

A reception at the inn immediately followed the ceremony. The following day, the couple traveled to Vermont for several days. In August they will go to Playa de Carmen, Mexico, on their wedding trip. They are residing in Natick, Mass.

The bride is a 1990 graduate of Edward Little High School and a 1994 graduate of the University of Maine at Orono. She earned her master’s degree in 2000 at Lesley University at Cambridge, Mass. She is currently a first grade teacher at the Bowman School in Lexington, Mass.
