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!

Kat and Cameron

It doesn’t get much better than this. Kat and Cameron’s wedding day was just about perfect and perfectly them. They emulate kindness and are about as laid back as they come - and their families are just as kind and welcoming. They wanted their day to be dreamy, care free and just a little bit fairytale~esque. We won’t go too deep into their fairy tale, but the way they met and fell in love was by chance and is the kind of story where you know it’s meant to be.

Soft colors, dreamy flowers, the Bride’s cape and textural delights describe my favorite elements of this wedding day. We were able to see an old venue in a new light. We hope you’ll delight in these photos as much as we do! Congratulations to this sweet couple and we wish you many years of happiness together!

An Urban Alaskan Wedding

Well it's been about 17 years since I've blogged, or so it seems!  I can't wait to share some of the goodness from this past wedding season coming down the shoot.  Exhibit A:  Anna and Joe's urban May wedding in Anchorage. 

I know what you're thinking.  Urban and Alaska in the same sentence is a sort of oxymoron.  But it isn't!  Most of our weddings are comprised outdoors in somewhat remote locations, but I was absolutely excited when Anna and Joe said they wanted to have a wedding in Anchorage, that was reflective of Anchorage.  The best way to describe these two together is they are a sort of Anchorage power couple.  A delight to be around and friends of MANY!  Community minded but also jet setting world travelers who call Anchorage home. They have a deep love for Anchorage and wanted to capture that feeling with their wedding.  Not to mention that it was so much fun to play with a more modern design style!

We incorporated the Bride's bright color palette of teals, oranges and bold hues with a mixture of greens.  I have a strong love for Monsterra leaves, and finally was able to incorporate them with this theme.  Matt, being the builder that he is, built a geometric ceremony backdrop and wooden mountain silhouettes that were displayed as guests entered the event.  My favorite part, Matt's creation of 7ft to 10ft large geometric shapes that were suspended above the dance floor and seating areas of the Dena'ina Ballroom.  The large ceilings made it feel as if they were floating and they were so much fun to see come to life!

There are almost too many highlights to mention of this wedding.  One of the best moments was when the ceremony started, the crowd was literally cheering as the wedding party walked down the aisle.  Cheering!  Their friends and family were ecstatic about seeing them get married. So much was custom from the Anchorage photo backdrop (taken by a local artist) on their wedding invitations to the hand made ties cut from the same fabric as the bridesmaid dresses to the Anchorage skyline on their wedding cake.  This wedding was all about the details.  To top it off, it probably was one of the best dance parties I've seen at a wedding.  Not a single person left sitting and everyone danced until the last possible moment at closing time.  Congratulations to Anna and Joe and thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding!
