This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding in Maine. The bride is the reason this site exists and the reason I write for this site as well. She was the one who opened my eyes to this city, for which I will be forever grateful. The bride is originally from Maine and the couple lives in the Detroit area. Even out in Maine, her home-state, my girl made sure to represent. The groomsmen were wearing ties by local Detroit artist Bethany Shorb who silk-screens ties through the Cyberoptix TieLab. All the wedding party was wearing one colour of tie while the groom had a distinct colour of his own. It is going to be tough choosing which ties to give to the men in my life. I might have to ruin the surprise and have them choose themselves.
