Kelsey + Tim - A Helicopter Glacier Elopement

Many of these elopements are so extremely beautiful that it’s almost hard to write a caption. I feel as if the words aren’t necessary and the photos are worth a million words. Kelsey and Tim’s wedding was just that! The stars aligned for this couple. Truly. Kelsey contacted me a little more than a week before they were coming to visit Alaska in the hopes of setting up an elopement in just a few short days. Only the witnesses in attendance knew they were getting married. I LOVE it when couples truly elope like this! There’s so much excitement and such a freedom in eloping so privately. The weather was probably one of the most spectacular blue bird days and the glacier gave some of the most incredible views I’ve seen thus far in my life. I’d say this was meant to be. Cheers to this sweet couple! May your road continue to hold many more adventures to come!

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!
