Bright and Sunny Alaskan Glacier Elopement

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

Erica of Erica Rose Photography captured this radiant couple in early August in under the midnight sun.

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!

This right here is my favorite picture of these two. They look so relaxed and full of joy! Bright and sunny - just like the weather! 

Here are some additional photos of Daphne and Shawn who took their beautiful adventure out in the mountains above Palmer.

Congrats to Shawn and Daphne. You guys were such an elegant couple!

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.
