First of the Green Wedding Giveaway 2011 Couples Marry at Clay Hill Farm!

As Cassi Madison walked down the aisle at Clay Hill Farm to meet her groom Luke Fuller, classical guitarist Pat Keane played ‘Here Comes the Sun’. On cue, the sun shone on the first of the three winning couples in Clay Hill Farm’s Green Wedding Giveaway, an annual contest to encourage green connectedness by celebrating real people making a difference in the world.

Luke & Cassi, of Portland, ME, won a green wedding package in Clay Hill Farm’s annual wedding contest that encourages engaged couples to explore the parallel between a commitment to each other and a commitment to the Earth. Luke and Cassi’s green love story was chosen for the finals from over 100 entries.

The couple then embarked on a five-week campaign for public votes while creating a giveback program to benefit their community. Passionate about the locavore movement and Maine-made food, Luke & Cassi celebrated their wedding at Clay Hill Farm Restaurant with over 100 friends and family that enjoyed a menu incorporating local farm products and produce.
