1. Write your toast ahead of time

Kaela & Ryan | An Intimate Maine Elopement

The intimate Maine elopement of Kaela & Ryan



How did you two meet?
Ryan saw me at the gym and just had to meet me so he asked his brother who I was, found me on Facebook and messaged me!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
We love Wells! We’ve been vacationing there for the past four years together and I have vacationed there my whole life. We went to Laudholm one weekend in January to check it out before our weekend getaway in Portland and then Ryan proposed! After that we knew we wanted to get married there! We love that we can come back to the spot where those two special moments in our life happened.

Were there any happy surprises that happened?
Ryan surprised me with beautiful diamond earrings, my dad brought me some pretty peonies and my mom made me “something blue” out of an old dress we both wore with my new initials and some pendants from my childhood.

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others?
Eating ice cream and our vows. Sorry! Can’t pick just one!

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Eat a lot more ice cream! We are picking up a new hobby! We’re going to start hiking new trails around us each weekend to spend some quality time together unplugged!
