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!

A Romantic Cloudy Day

The photos of this day are so perfect because they convey just how much laughter and happiness was going around the world with these two!  Their story is absolutely worth sharing.  Desiree is a native Texan (and proud) who happened to strike up a conversation with someone while in line at a concert in Dallas.  They soon became friends and long story short she was introduced to the Groom, John, through her new friend.  All because of one friendly conversation, now these two are married and off to many more adventures together!  They came all the way from their home in Oklahoma (where the Bride happily moved for love) to start their life together by eloping in the mountains.  I had the pleasure of getting to know Desiree through the planning process for almost a year.  I remember her telling me that it was so important that they have a "first look," and even though they weren't hosting a huge traditional wedding, she didn't want John to see her in her dress until just the right moment.  There was anticipation and excitement that morning helping her put on the finishing touches, and when John's face lit up seeing her it felt like time stood still for these two for a small moment.  On this day there was a little bit of rain and a few clouds, but it sure felt like there was more happiness to go around than anything.  I'm so thankful I was able to meet both of them and be a part of their wedding!  Congratulations to you both John and Desiree!
