Clay Hill Farm Hosts 4th Annual Green Wedding Giveaway
Clay Hill Farm Hosts 4th Annual Green Wedding Giveaway

On July 8, under a clear blue sky on a picture-perfect Maine day, Jessica Maillet and Tim Caouette of Westminster, Massachusetts, exchanged vows in a garden ceremony, becoming the fourth couple awarded the Green Wedding Giveaway® Grand Prize wedding at Clay Hill Farm.

Launched in the fall of 2008, Clay Hill Farm’s annual Green Wedding Giveaway has been rewarding couples that make a difference in the world through their everyday commitments to each other and the Earth. Thanks to public votes and the judges’ scores on their creative contest submission, the Green Wedding Giveaway Grand Prize winners are chosen in early March to begin working with the project sponsors to plan their perfect Maine summer wedding. But what makes the weddings green? "The natural beauty surrounding Clay Hill Farm, our passion for seasonal, local food and our family philosophy help give every wedding a green start," says Jennifer Lewis-McShera, senior wedding consultant and founder of Clay Hill Farm’s Green Wedding Giveaway.

"We thought we knew quite a bit about sustainable practices going into the wedding planning," said 2012 winner Jess Maillet, "but the sponsors taught us so much about simple tweaks that could make a difference in our overall environmental impact. We didn’t have to sacrifice a single dream or vision for our wedding to make a difference, the journey was amazing and the wedding exceeded our expectations." Over 30 sponsors support the environmental outreach initiatives at Clay Hill Farm, of which the Green Wedding Giveaway is a headlining event. www.greenweddinggiveaway.com
