An Alaskan Wedding in Shades of Green

Updated: Oct 22, 2019

Meet Kimmy and Andrew, one of our adorable couples who were married out in Girdwood, Alaska. Girdwood is a popular destination for Alaska weddings. Not only is it a quaint ski town with adorable charm, and ski bums for lively local chat, but it is also home to Alyeska Resort.  A beautiful hotel nestled in a gorgeous mountain valley. Kimmy and Andrew said their vows at the ever gorgeous Our Lady of the Snows Chapel in a Catholic ceremony. Following the ceremony, guests moved over to the Alyeska Resort, Kahiltna Ballroom.  The natural Alaskan elements continued with hand made escort cards from river rocks and a card box with snow shoe adornment.

Our team loved the floral designs by Corey Jacobson at AK Bouquet & Event Designs.  We particularly loved the varying shades of green from the dark curling ivy and natural fillers mixed with white roses, petals and Queen Anne's Lace.
