Greenery and Gold Alaskan Wedding

Updated: Sep 16, 2019

Sandy was a gorgeous bride with delicate and romantic taste, marrying her dapper Alaskan groom, Vern.  She called me up from Seattle with a beautiful vision of a light and bright wonderland garden with accents of gold.

There was only one problem. Their reception was being held in a small log room with almost no windows.  No worries. Wedding planning can also be called "wedding solutions" so we set to work to design a gorgeous and very romantic look that complimented the venue, and worked with its strengths, while sourcing some out of the box ideas for creating a garden atmosphere where there was none.

Hey there! I am Rebecca Kopperud, a born and bred Alaskan, as well as the owner and chief designer behind

La Boum Events.

I began my career in event planning organizing conferences and meetings. In 2012 I had the opportunity to strike out on my own and start my own company. I choose the name La Boum Events because it is slang for "the party!" I was looking for a name that reflected my love of french culture, my bubbly personality and above all, my love for entertaining. La Boum Events was born and we absolutely took off planning Alaska's best weddings and celebrations.

Since then I have invited other super organizers and decorators to collaborate with me to offer spectacular event planning services throughout Alaska. Meet our team on our ABOUT page.
