High School Sweethearts Elope to Alaska

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

Emily and Travis are a fun couple with an incredible sense of adventure. The two have been dating since high school and been together for eight years.

When they decided to get married they knew they wanted an epic honeymoon and were not that interested in spending all their money on a reception. They also have a goal of traveling a lot together. When they began discussing eloping, they originally looked into eloping internationally but found the laws to elope in another country were challenging. Alaska seemed like a great option to fill their need for travel, adventure and an epic adventure.

They eloped in a meadow in Girdwood, Alaska and then spent their honeymoon enjoying activities such as a boat tour through the Kenai Fjords in Seward and a flight around Denali in a bush plane in Talkeetna before ending their trip in Fairbanks. 

The blue and yellow of Simple Petal's florals reflect the Alaska state colors and popped beautifully against the forest greens.

To a lifetime of adventure and travel! Congratulations, Travis and Emily!

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.

Does this resonate with you? To learn more about what it is like to work with us, fill out our inquiry form for a COUPLES ONLY ELOPEMENT for pricing and service details.
