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!

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!
