Frances and Bennett met in college in an environmental science and public policy class, despite both being biology majors. They discovered they shared diverse values and interests, from food and cats to medicine and our sense of service to others. They soon started dating and eight years later tied the knot at Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla.
The couple had a Quaker-inspired wedding ceremony, in which their marriage was witnessed by family and friends. There was no officiant; instead, they sat facing our guests in silent reflection. During this time, guests rose to give speeches offering advice, good wishes, and stories about their relationship. At the end of the ceremony, they stood and exchanged vows and rings, and then signed their wedding certificate. After the ceremony, all the guests signed the certificate in witness and approval of the union.
