An Alaskan Wedding in Shades of Green

Updated: Jan 4, 2021

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.

I loved the natural feel of the floral designs with the varying shades of green mixed with white roses, petals and Queen Anne's Lace.
