Maine Elopement | Sarah & Jared | Presque Isle Maine

Yesterday, Sarah and Jared eloped at their home in Northern Maine. It has really been hard for them getting to this day. I was originally booked for their wedding last fall, but unfortunately due to a personal matter those plans had to be cancelled. So they made plans for an ultimate elopement in Vegas, but then *those* plans had to be cancelled as well due to the coronavirus. It was all so unfair.

My Grammy, Vera

Yesterday we all gathered to pay respect to our matriarch and to say our final goodbyes. It was so hard but I think all in all, it went just the way she wanted it to. We sat respectfully in her church during the service, but still had some much needed silly moments here and there as we snuck treats before the luncheon or passed candy and silly faces down the church pews...
