Stacey + Johnny - Alaskan Elopement in the Mountains

We've been posting so many glacier weddings lately that we wanted to take a break for green grass and gorgeous Alaskan meadows.  Stacey and Johnny's elopement was too beautiful not to share!  They came to Alaska from Florida with Stacey's sister and brother-in-law along to join in the fun and witness their vows.  They were such a fun and laid back group and I remember them saying this was the most adventurous thing they had ever done.  And we may have had a lengthy conversation about which state is more dangerous to live in between photos.  I told them anywhere with alligators in your backyard scares me far worse than bears and I think they felt the opposite!  It all goes to show perspective is different no matter where you live.  Their day was overcast, but no rain showed and it was the perfect amount of lush green against the gray skies in the meadow where they said their vows.  We wish you the best Stacey and Johnny and thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day in Alaska!

Love + Airplanes + Beautiful Weather = A Perfect Elopement!

Kari and Corey are the sweetest. Absolutely!  These two had love written all over their faces. Hailing all the way from Minnesota, they came to Alaska to elope in secret and spend their days here honeymooning and adventuring.  I will never forget this day as Corey (Groom) could not contain his love for his Bride.  He purchased her a gorgeous flower arrangement that she woke up to on the day of their wedding, and an additional bouquet to give her at their first look.  I mean, these two are smitten!  

Between me, the photographer and the couple, none of us ever stopped smiling during this adventure.  We hopped on a DeHavilland Beaver, headed out to find sunshine and ended up finding a perfect lake to land on for their ceremony.  There is no better feeling that being alone in the wilderness, no pressure, and seeing a Bride and Groom have the ability to say all of those things that are so meaningful and heartfelt without the pressure of an audience (aside from maybe a few bears and a moose or two).  Congratulations to these sweethearts and we hope your deep love for each other continues to grow and grow!
