“Words cannot express how amazing this company is. My fiance (now husband!) and I had been together 13 years. We have never been traditional people and knew we wanted something really special for our wedding day, but had zero idea what we wanted. We waited, and waited...because nothing felt special enough to celebrate us. Years of dreaming and searching and nothing spoke to us...until the day we found Alaska Destination Weddings. I contacted Erin and she quickly replied with helpful information. Within a short amount of time, we booked our elopement. We booked it about 1 year in advance and over the course of a year, Erin answered all of my questions, treated me as a friend and reassured me in all of my worries. We met in the hotel room, before my dress went on and she was SO helpful. She helped me steam the dress, put the dress on, fold a pocket square, go back and forth between two hotel rooms...all while making me feel extremely comfortable and excited. Her professionalism, warm personality and knowledge really washed away my anxiety. During the chaos of getting ready to leave the hotel room, she made sure we had water in our bag and everything we needed. We took a short hike to our location and we were so blown away by the beauty of it. None of that would have been possible without Erin. She truly made my whole vision come to life, even better than I imagined. All of her vendors and recommendations were the absolute best. I 100% recommend Alaska Destination Weddings. If you are reading this and thinking about it, take my advice....DO IT. Best decision we have made. Thank you Alaska Destination Weddings for making our dream come true!” - Jessica
“Ugh, I just don't even know where to begin to express how grateful my now husband and I are that Erin was able to help us plan THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES! We initially intended to plan a "traditional" wedding where we live in Florida, but we were not enjoying all of the stress that comes along with it. We randomly one night had the idea to go get married in Alaska and I stumbled upon Erin's website. Neither of us had been to Alaska before, but I explained all the little details and adventures that we wanted to do to Erin and she put together the perfect adventure-packed day for our wedding day and guided us every step of the way, STRESS FREE! From the first inquiry e-mail, the random questions I had throughout the months leading up to the wedding, to taking care of the cake and flowers, to planning the day of, with hiking for beautiful photos at Bird Point, a helicopter flight for photos on top of a glacier, a tram ride up to the top of a mountain for a beautiful ceremony overlooking the scenery with our closest family in tow, and finally a great dinner reception at Seven Glaciers, Erin was AMAZING. It truly was a day we will remember forever. I now think everyone should travel to Alaska to get married with the help of Alaska Destination Weddings :) THANKS, ERIN!!!” - Cassie
“We had such a wonderful wedding all thanks to Erin! It was so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined and it went so, so smooth. I’m so glad we decided to have an Alaskan destination wedding. No other place could have ever topped this. And for having so much going on in our personal lives back in MN, she made it absolutely stress free. I never had to worry once. It was nothing short of PERFECT! Thank you so much!” - Kylie
“My husband and I live in northern part of Alaska and knew we wanted to elope to Anchorage. Erin made everything so easy, and made sure every little detail of our day was taken care of! She worked with us to make sure our witnesses were able to go with us to Knik Glacier, even after a helicopter issue. She made sure we had a gorgeous bouquet and boutonnière, delicious cake and an absolutely amazing time. I was so comfortable with her immediately, and couldn’t imagine my day without her support!” - Tabitha
"We traveled from Minnesota to Alaska in early June for our elopement. From our initial email to Erin to the last hug she gave us we knew that finding Alaska Destination Weddings and eloping was the smartest decision we had made! Erin worked with this Type A gal on every detail of our day and it was nothing short of a dream. My husband Corey and I smiled and laughed all day; we both commented on that when we saw our photos. Erin thought of every detail and made it stress free and relaxing so we could focus on being present in the moment. Thank you so much for everything Erin and for sharing our day with us."- Corey
"Erin is phenomenal!! If you are thinking of a wedding planner then you need to ask for Erin's assistance. She is incredibly kind and so easy to work with. I truly can't say enough about her. I emailed her about a million times...not kidding even a little bit, and she always answered. We had lost a luggage bag that contained my husband's tie, shirt, and belt, and Erin went to the Men's Wearhouse in Anchorage, and picked it up for us when she was on our way to our ceremony. She is outstanding and we couldn't have done our elopement without her helpful planning, her ideas, and her enthusiasm. She helped me get ready for our 'first look', and it felt as though we had been friends for a long time, even though we had just met 10 minutes prior!
Erin is amazing, and I would recommend her to all of my friends and family!" - Sarah
"My husband and I just eloped in Anchorage. We had never been to Alaska before so we knew we would need someone to help us plan it. We could not have asked for a better planner than Erin! From the first phone call to the last hug goodbye, Erin was attentive and sweet. She guided us through the whole process until the "I Do's" and made our elopement better than we ever imagine it could be. Every single detail put into it showed how much she cared and that she listened to everything we said. We highly recommend Erin for her creativity, attention to detail and excellent service." - Juliana
We started from complete scratch wanting to have our elopement 3000 miles away from home and Erin was an absolute blessing! She was so helpful from the first contact and personalized the elopement package that for best for what we wanted. My only job was to describe exactly how I envisioned our wedding and Erin managed all the leg work and everything was perfect, so so beautiful!
"It was just myself and my (now) husband, so having her there to help even with the smallest details made a worlds difference. I honestly have no words to describe how thankful we are for meeting Erin. She made it as easy as making sure we showed up and she took care of the rest. Highly highly recommend for anyone who hopes for that beautiful, stressless Alaska wedding!" - Desiree
"Thank you SO much for an incredible adventure, Erin! With all of your hard work put into the details of the ceremony and activities, there was zero stress on our end. Zech and I could not have had such a magical experience without you! Thank you again!" - Samantha
"Erin! Thank you again for all your work! Getting married in Alaska (and hiring you as our planner!) really was the best decision we could have ever made and we are so thankful we did!" - Rose
