Rose Bed Marriage Proposal in the Mountains

I have such a soft spot for marriage proposals. I love making an occasion out of every day moments, so when there is an opportunity to make an occasion out of something HUGE, such as a marriage proposal? Count me all in!

It took a team of 4 people to hike 300 roses, a picnic and some furniture, up into a mountain valley way, way up above Hatcher Pass at the base of this glacial lake.

We created a little romantic picnic scene with flowers, a cozy spot to curl up and some tasty treats for the couple to enjoy.

What I loved most about this plan is that the couple came to Alaska on vacation and they were together the entire trip. He didn't have a moment to sneak away to set up a romantic scene for her - let alone, hike way up into the mountains with all of these roses and furniture to set it up and surprise her.

That's where we come in. Like magic. The couple was out hiking and enjoying a beautiful day and just happened upon a beautiful little scene set out just for them. Then it was all cleaned up like it never even happened.

Oh and by the way! She said "yes."

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.
