Marion Mercedes Ewing and Edward Scott Roe

Marion and Scott first met at an evening beach party on Nantucket. They became friends and dated causally over the summer, but it wasn’t until they crossed paths four years later in Boston that they began dating seriously. Three years into their courtship, on a cold January Boston night while strolling down Commonwealth Avenue, Scott stopped to tie his shoe, but really got down on one knee and proposed.

The bride’s brother, John Ewing, officiated at the ceremony at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport, where the reception followed. After watching the wedding video, the couple noticed that a seagull flew over them as they were saying their vows. This was significant since Marion’s father died suddenly a few years back and has since manifested as a seagull in her life; the couple truly feel that he was there watching over them.

The Bride and Groom

The bride, daughter of the late David Ewing and Annette Ewing of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, graduated from the Westminster School, Susquehanna University, and is on track to receive her master’s of education from Manhattanville College in 2014. Marion is a teacher at New Canaan Country School.

The groom, son of Keith and Elizabeth Roe of Greenwich, graduated from the Loomis Chaffee School, the University of Vermont and received his MBA from the University of Connecticut in Stamford.

Scott is an earth science consultant for Burns and Roe in Oradell, New Jersey.

The newlyweds honeymooned in French Polynesia. They call Greenwich home.
