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!

Kayla and Dalton - A Glacier Elopement in Alaska

Best day ever. Best day ever. Best day ever. I repeat that every time we get to marry a couple on a glacier! This day wasn’t without drama, however. The Alaskan weather almost put a hitch in our plans. Mother nature pulled through at the last moment and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful evening spent exploring from the air and climbing on ice and mountaintops. Kayla and Dalton had their hearts set on being on a glacier when they said their “I Dos” to one another. We had an intense few hours of the waiting game, a long drive out to the lodge and just as we arrived the clouds broke free and our pilots let us know we were going to go out. There was definitely a giant sigh of relief heard and felt by everyone. The best part about it was that it ended up being one of the most gorgeous weather days we had all summer! This day was absolutely full of adventure and I will never forget how everything seemed to work out perfectly for this couple. I would say it’s a very clear sign that it’s meant to be. Congratulations Kayla and Dalton and thank you for choosing us to be a part of something so wonderful!
