I don't see any leaves which resemble Bedstraw and I don't see any leaves which I would call fern-like. There is a Bedstraw which is listed in several of my books which has acute white petals. It is Stiff Marsh Bedstraw (Galium obtusum. This is a plant which grows in very wet soil, possibly even shallow water. It has a whorl of four blunt leaves at each node and the fruit is smooth. It has a fairly wide natural range which appears to include the area where you live.

This photo shows the broader leaves on the vine for the Bedstraw blooms. Not the fern like plants also in the photo. Please help with variety ID. Thanks
