Alaskan Mountain Elopement - Justin + Elaine
Anchorage, Alaska what a freaking DREAM world. Alaska has so much to offer. You seriously can’t even turn around without being totally captivated by this ridiculous landscape. The drive was just as beautiful, the winding roads hugging a fast paced glacier water stream flowing through the mountain scape. My experience here was focused mainly on exploring, learning, meeting new friends and finding inspiration in a whole new environment. I never had the opportunity to see mountains quite like the Chugach Mountains in Alaska. We drove about an hour or so north of Anchorage to this incredible valley known as Hatchers Pass. We were completely surrounded with views of large, vast, cascading snow capped mountains that melted into a beautiful lush green like I have never seen. The ceremony was perfectly and simply styled by Brier+Ivy with an ah-mazing cake perfect for two by Cake Life Everyday. The Lodge at Hatchers Pass is this cozy romantic hide-away that nestles right in the middle of this beautiful area. There are several charming A-Frame cabins accompanied by a restaurant, a spa and all the proof you need that mother nature likes to show off. Elaine wore a dress by Wilderly Bride, from The Bespoke Bride shop that was just as beautiful as she was. We were obsessing over her adorable ice-queen’esque head piece by Emma Katz Bridal. Their beautiful hand written details by Maggie Murray Creative completed this perfect little Alaskan elopement dream. The mountains, the love story, this beautiful state. It was all incredible.
