Wow wow wow! Thank you for the outpouring of love and support to our elopement news! It was a whirlwind of a weekend!

Thursday Chad and I packed up the car, dropped off the pups and hit the road!

We decided to take our time to get to Portland. The drive is a total of 13 hours from Akron to Portland, so we drove 8 hours and stopped for the night in Albany, New York. We woke up bright and early Friday and finished the drive to Maine.

We stopped in Ogunquit, Maine to get our marriage license:

we were kinda excited. 🙂

Finished our drive to the Inn By The Sea in Cape Elizabeth {about 10 minutes outside of Downtown Portland}. We stayed at this exact hotel on our trip to Portland in 2009 and LOVED it.

After settling in, we went to a place called Gilbert’s Chowder House in Old Port for a lobster dinner:

Saturday morning we woke up and split a yummy blueberry pancake and bacon breakfast; and followed it up with a couples massage. Post-massage, we finished getting ready for our big day!

The weather for the ceremony was fantastic. The whole week prior we were watching stalking the weather channel and they were forecasting 40 degrees and rain, rain, rain. But it turned out to be absolutely beautiful.

We ate our wedding dinner at the Lobster Shack at Two Lights. This little shack has the most yummy lobster rolls ever. And everyone who was there thought it was hilarious that we were so decked out at this super casual restaurant.

Congratulations! It looks like you had a wonderful time in Maine and that it was a beautiful start to your marriage. You’ve also planted the idea of eloping one day in my head 🙂
