This couple, and their families, was such an absolute joy to get to know! From our first meeting I knew that this wedding was going to be a treat to work on. Emily and her mother had a vision for creating a woodland wonderland at the Crow Creek Mine. They wanted something that felt Alaskan and outdoorsy with a fresh take on the rustic chic theme. Emily and Tyler are a true Alaskan grown couple and it was so fun to reflect that in their wedding day! The setting in Girdwood is lush and green and it was delightful to add pops of mint and fire engine red into the color palette for their wedding. The Groom is an Anchorage firefighter so it was important to the couple that we mixed in elements that reflected his work. Tyler was lucky enough to loan vintage fire hats, hoses and even vintage toy firetrucks in order to create vignettes in tribute to him. Emily (and her entire family) are extremely creative and her father constructed a bar made entirely of upcycled wood palettes and her mother spent months personally growing flowers and collecting props to use in conjunction with pieces from Bloomsbury Blooms. The bar was, by far, one of THE coolest pieces I've seen someone make to date. Matt was talking about it for weeks afterward! The details of this wedding were so personal and so much thought was put into the whys of every item used. Mary Brunst Photography captured this day that was truly a fairytale and the Mine was transformed into something that felt magical and romantic all at the same time!
