Remote Helicopter Alpine Ceremony with Guests | Alaska


Calling the wanderlust! Tara (an Aussie) and Michael were looking for a spectacular Alaskan experience for their wedding ceremony. An experience they would share with her parents who were coming across the globe to witness.


Just a short scenic helicopter ride to the ceremony site, this couple married out at a remote location over looking Knik Glacier. The couple opted to have their own officiant. Tara didn't like the idea of being out on a glacier, but liked the idea of being at a private location where they wouldn't have hikers coming across their special moment.

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.


I specialize in micro-weddings because they are a unique and special type of event focused on bringing a small group of people together to celebrate a big life event. I have been witness to transformational and intimate moments among family and friends that I can truly say are nothing short of magical.

I love helping my clients find that perfect location, orchestrate great food and drinks, schedule out time for them to connect, and create a beautiful table setting. Each time I love hearing a collective whispered "wow!" I live for these moments and can't wait to work with you to find your perfect moment in Alaska or anywhere in the world!

I have been in business offering unique micro-weddings 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 anything cookie-cutter 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.
