Jenn and Christine - A Glacier Elopement

Jenn and Christine are an absolute joy! We were so thankful to be a part of their wedding and getting to know them over the span of the year that we planned this day. Their elopement was unforgettable, for many reasons. The scheduled day of their elopement the weather proved both difficult and dangerous for a helicopter flight. By a stroke of good luck all of the vendors involved were available the following day and they were still able to travel by helicopter to elope on a glacier! The silver lining was that the weather was beautiful for their wedding day. They met in high school, fell in love and their story carried itself all the way to Alaska where they vowed their lives and love to one another.

All of the little details made this day so unique and special. The bold jewel toned flowers, Jenn’s blush hued dress against the glacial backdrop, the soft clouds that gave just enough of that perfect light and most importantly, the way they looked at each other. They wanted a first look, so the finishing touches happened separately and you could almost feel the excitement bubbling over in the moments getting ready and walking to their reveal. I don’t think the smiles stopped after that moment. This day was full of anticipation and the patience of something that was a long time coming for them. Congratulations to you both, Jenn and Christine, and may your story be filled with more adventure and lots of love in the years to come!

Daniella and Michael - Nature Lover's Elopement

This day turned out so beautifully that it almost doesn’t need words or description. Eloping in Alaska is definitely for the adventurous at heart couples who aren’t afraid of any kind of weather! The entire morning before their wedding ceremony it was pouring down rain. Pouring. When I called Daniella to discuss the weather I remember her calmly saying “I don’t care where we go or if it’s raining, I’m just happy that I’ll be marrying Michael.” And wouldn’t you know it, the clouds cleared and we had the most fantastic moody Alaskan weather (with almost no rain!) for the entire afternoon. And let’s just state for the record, weather like this is perfect! A quiet riverside ceremony, an enchanted forest, a bridal cape (my FAVORITE), and two people in love made this Alaskan elopement something all of us will remember for a lifetime. Cheers to these two kind, caring and wonderful souls! We wish you a life full of many more adventures!
