Rachel and Roger searched high and low for a spot along the New England coast to elope with just their closest family, including their son, Aaden. They landed on the Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth because it had that magical mix of everything they were looking for, including access to the ocean. These two said their I Do's in the gazebo while Aaden watched, waiting for his big moment to bring up the rings. After some celebrating, we wandered the grounds for portraits, including a shaded grove with a funky old tree and a stroll on the beach. It's always so much fun to be part of a smaller celebration.
Thank you Rachel and Roger (and Aaden!) for including me!
How they met, according to Rachel:
Roger and I met when we were teenagers (I was 15 and he was 19) and were best friends before we started dating. We both had our share of hardships growing up, and that taught us to lean on each other for support. Roger was my rock through those years and truly saved my life. We had a strong connection from the very beginning of our friendship, and as we grew up, that connection blossomed into love.
