Remote Helicopter Alpine Ceremony with Guests | Alaska
Updated: Nov 3
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.
The bride got ready privately, enjoying professional hair and make up.
The couple chose to have a private first look just outside the vacation rental where they were staying.
Erica Rose their photographer took the couple up Hatcher Pass to take private couple photos before they joined family members for their service.
Family joined them for a flight out above Knik Glacier for a very private and unique wedding ceremony.
This bridal bouquet was my favorite of the season!
Look at these stunning local peonies!
Not a soul in sight!
After the ceremony the couple opted to provide guests with a rose petal toss and then toasted to love with sparkling wine in our vintage flutes.
The couple rounded out their special day with a beautiful meal at a local restaurant. We delivered a naked cake with fresh flowers and a cake stand to the Raven's Perch.
