"Over the past year, healthcare workers have been working tirelessly on the front lines, putting their lives on hold and sacrificing their time for the health and wellbeing of others," said Whaler's Inn president Amanda Arling.

All of us at The Whaler's Inn, along with our Mystic partners, are excited to give one deserving couple an unforgettable elopement celebration to express our gratitude for all their hard work."
