A fellow photographer, Juna and her sweetie Scott live in Connecticut but traveled up to Maine to exchange their vows in the rustic Morgan Hill Event Center near Bangor. They opted to wed on the Monday of Columbus Day, and so, myself, Denise and Sharon ventured up for the beautiful fall nuptials of these two and their closest family and friends.
How they met, in their own words:
One night, while away at college, Juna & a friend decided to jump into a chat room to goof off and cause trouble to "weird people looking for love on the internet". Little did she know....love was about to find her. JunaRaePhoto and SDF4577 started chatting - innocently. "Where in Maine are you from?" SDF4577 told JunaRaePhoto about his broken road of love and timing. JunaRaePhoto told SDF4577 about college and her relationship. Soon SDF4577 and JunaRaePhoto became Scott and Juna Rae. We talked about love, family, interests, hobbies, dreams, and goals. Scott would play guitar and sing on web cam. They began looking forward to talking to each other and Scott would "virtually" cuddle with his Snuggle Bug Juna Rae. Juna really needed models for school, and on more then one occassion Scott offered. At first the idea of meeting someone from the internet seemed CRAZY to Juna, dangerous in fact. Something Mom definitely would frown upon. However, several discussion into it they realized that Rachel (Scott's Mother) and Pat (Juna's Mother's Best Friend's Mom) were in the same play. What a small world, Juna thought, ...he must be a safe guy. So she finally took him up on his offer. Scott took the drive to Massachusetts to model for Juna. She was very grateful and called to thank him. His 2 hour drive home to log on to AIM felt like an eternity because Juna KNEW she had to see him again. We began making regular visits to see each other and had a blast. We would go to the West Haven Beach and cuddle, or for walks around New Haven & Turners Falls. However in a few short months Juna graduated and returned home to Maine. No longer within arms reach of each other, they realized if they were going to get to know each other one of them were going to have to make a sacrifice and move. So in August, Juna packed a bag for a long weekend planning to go to a job interview. She got the job and never returned home. Over the next several years we fell in love and here we are today.....
