Hooked on a Feeling in Talkeetna, Alaska


It was love at first hagfish. Sara and Chris met through work as Game Wardens in California. Chris saw a photo of Sara kissing a hagfish and knew he had to meet her.

According to Sara, the night they met the two of them talked all evening long and after 10 months of dating, Chris proposed.


They both have a wonderful sense of humor and decided on a destination wedding in Alaska that included a dressy, casual and rustic theme.

They invited 50 friends and family to join them in Talkeetna for the wedding festivities. The Groomsmen danced down the aisle to "Hooked on a Feeling" while the ladies boogied to "You're the One That I Want", from Grease.



The couple wrote their own vows and claimed they didn't want anything too mushy or something that would make them cry. They were not too mushy but there were definitely tears as the couple spoke of how they promised to care for one another from this day forward.
