Frequently Asked Questions
How many weddings have you facilitated?
To be honest, we've lost count. Erin has been working in the events industry for almost 17 years, and the number of weddings under her belt are in the hundreds. Each season is different and we opt to work with couples who are a good fit for our particular approach to elopement planning and benefit from our services. Our typical couple is interested in having a day that is reflective of Alaska's beauty with artistic photography and have appreciation for professionalism during the planning process.
Why don't you plan larger weddings?
We offer wedding planning and design services through our sister company Blomma Designs. Because larger weddings require a heavier work load, we only take on a small amount of them each year to ensure our clients are getting the utmost in customer service and quality time with us. If you are bringing a group of guests to Alaska and need planning and design services, visit us here to learn more.
When do you offer elopements?
We offer elopements Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning June 1st through mid-September. This is our optimal season for weather and exploration of the great outdoors. Our weekends are dedicated to larger weddings, and family time. We love to enjoy the outdoors and our Alaskan playground during our short summer season!
What is included in our package?
Your package includes an Officiant, a bridal bouquet and boutonniere, two witnesses (as required by the State of Alaska), a petite wedding cake for two, handmade pottery mugs made by a local Alaskan artist as a keepsake for you, vendor recommendations, vendor coordination, assistance with properly applying for your marriage license and complimentary filing of documents after your ceremony culminates. We also offer our Alaska Wedding Guide to all of our couples. This is a professional magazine that covers everything you need to know about traveling to Alaska and eloping in Alaska. We help you every step of the way to ensure your marriage is legal and that you have everything you need to make your day amazing!
Can we bring guests?
This is dependent on the location and package you choose. Some packages allow for guests at an additional fee, and also have special permitting requirements. If you have a small group we will discuss with you whether you are a good fit for an elopement package, or if you require wedding planning services.
How do we secure a date?
We require a signed contract and deposit to hold your date. We tend to book up 9+ months in advance, with the most popular months booking about 1 year in advance. If you are interested in having us be a part of your elopement we recommend reaching out as soon as you know that Alaska is the right place for you!
