Daphne and Shawn came all the way from Hong Kong for a spectacular Alaskan elopement.

We took the couple out on the Knik Glacier for a beautiful ceremony and a champagne toast. This fun loving couple were all smiles and ready for a wonderful adventure leaping over glacial streams and playing.

I just love the burgundy offset by the silver of the dusty miller in this bridal bouquet.

Daphne looked absolutely radiant with hair and make up done by the

AK Beauty Bar.  She was such an elegant bride.

Toasting to their love! Because it is a celebration after all, even if just for two!

MEET REBECCA

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

Are you thinking about eloping? Good! I think eloping is incredibly romantic and brave. It is throwing out the rule book, and putting the focus back on the two of you, where it belongs. Eloping is a movement that has been growing over the past few years. For many, it is a decision that corrects a host of issues presented by the wedding industry, and allows for a genuine celebration of a big life moment. As a wedding planner I don’t want to be a part of the problem, I want to be a part of the solution. And I want to support you.


I have been in business offering unique elopements in Alaska for years, long before it became popular. We have developed sought after industry connections, and a quality of service that is unsurpassed. You simply won’t find a one-size-fits-all elopement here. Everything truly is about you, and your special day.


We take on a limited amount of clients, so we can focus on personalization and quality. We offer a completely unique, unbundled experience so you can have exactly what you want and nothing you don’t. There is nothing cookie-cutter about what we do.
