Sarah and AJ - Elegant Farm Wedding in Alaska

Sarah and AJ’s wedding is high up on our list and quite possibly one of our favorites! These two were married on the Groom’s family farm which made it all the more special. The Bride is originally from Florida and we connected almost instantly via our love of the finer details and the feeling that elegance pairs perfectly with wild Alaska.

We were honored to offer this couple full event design including floral and some very fun installations that hung in their reception barn. There are so many aspects that I loved about this day. The couple’s color palette, the juxtaposition of formal and casual and the deep roots of the farm that made this day so meaningful to their families coming together and celebrating their union. Prior to the wedding we spent a day on the farm cutting down trees that would then become their chuppa. We collected pieces of almost 100 year old wood for their signs. And we probably overstayed our welcome a few times because we just wanted to hang out with the cows in the pasture! We spent hours pining over the right florals and colors and textures that would look perfectly in place on the farm. It was nothing short of a delight.

We hope you’ll enjoy reliving this day through photos as much as we do. To Sarah and AJ - thank you for letting us be such a big part of this day and entrusting us with creating your wedding vision. We wish you many many years of love and adventure together!

Two Vegan Chicken Farmers and Lots of Love

Kelsey and Tom came to me at the beginning stages of their wedding planning process looking for guidance in both planning and design.  It was apparent from the first meeting that these are two people who put heart and soul into all of their thoughts and actions.  They truly wanted to incorporate a reflection of themselves into their day and create a warm sense of community and love at their wedding.  One way to describe them would be vegan chicken farmers!  Yes, they are vegan, and yes, they keep chickens.  The entire meal was deliciously vegan. It was very important to them that they shared this aspect of their lives with their guests.  No detail was left untouched and even the hot cocoa and marshmallows were vegan!  Their chickens and sweet puppy Tikishla are an important part of their family unit, so they were incorporated into all of the details as well.  From Tom walking down the aisle with Tikishla, to the chicken emblems on their stationary, to all of the chicken feathers incorporated into their floral, this evening was as unique and beautiful as one could hope!  

Because we were able to seat everyone at one table and serve a family style meal, the atmosphere encouraged conversation, laughter and genuine enjoyment from everyone.  Something that really stuck out to me about this night were the speeches.  Every person that spoke discussed how both Tom and Kelsey had personally touched their lives in a positive way.  Each person was excited to see these two commit to one another and start a new chapter in their lives as husband and wife.  Love is a very powerful thing, and it was the resounding emotion felt by all that night.  To the bride and groom, thank you so much for entrusting us with your wedding!  We were honored to be a part of such an amazing group of people and getting to know you has been our pleasure.  May your love continue to grow and flourish and may your chicken flock always be bountiful!
