April and Wes - A Northern Mountains Elopement

These photos are a testament to April and Wes. Their kind nature and “up for anything in Alaska on my wedding day” attitude made this day phenomenal. They spent their morning getting ready together, and I remember April saying it would have felt weird if Wes wasn’t there with her. They have a bond that only best friends and lovers can have.

Hatcher Pass regularly reminds us that Alaska’s weather is unpredictable, and we’re absolutely not in control. When we started into the park, it was just a normal cloudy day. Mid-hike to their ceremony spot, the fog rolled in, we couldn’t see 10 feet in front of us and then the rains came. The silver lining was that it was moody, beautiful and most of all, an ADVENTURE! April was even hopping creeks and smiling the entire time, wedding gown and all! Choosing to elope in Alaska comes with diverse weather, but that makes it the unique opportunity for the most fun and unpredictable wedding day in the most wonderful way. Congratulations to April and Wes and their beautiful elopement 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!
