There was a Hollywood wedding in Scarborough last weekend as Idexx founder David E. Shaw and actress Glenn Close were married at Prouts Neck in a private ceremony.

Details about the ceremony were limited last week and Close’s publicist Catherine Olim said she could only confirm that the two were married.

The pair has been together for a couple of years, according to published reports and Close has been spotted on numerous occasions in Maine during that time. According to Olim, the pair met through a mutual friend.

The pair visited Scarborough Town Hall on Friday afternoon to apply for a marriage license, just hours before the wedding. According to Assistant Town Clerk Tracy O’Rourke, who handled the paperwork, Close and Shaw came in with a third person. The license was returned to the clerk’s office on Tuesday.

Daniel Wathen, a former chief justice of the Maine Supreme Court, conducted the ceremony.

The 54-year-old Shaw was the former CEO of Idexx and founded the company in 1984. He retired in 2002. Close, 58, is most noted for her roles in “Fatal Attraction”, “The Big Chill”, and “101 Dalmatians”. Close has been nominated for an Oscar five times, in 1983, 1984, 1985, 1988 and 1988. She was also nominated for an Emmy award in 2005 for her work on the television series “The Shield.”

Close has been married twice before, to Cabot Wade from 1969 to 1971, and to James Marlas from 1984 to 1987. Both marriages ended in divorce.
