Chantel and Steve have two great passions - flying and firearms. When they were planning their Alaska summer wedding, they knew they wanted both incorporated into their theme.

Chantel is Palmer born-and-raised and Steve is an Alaska bush pilot. The couple wanted an elegant yet casual wedding that reflected their roots.

Their ceremony took place in a family's Palmer back yard surrounded by pastures and mountains.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect!

The reception was at their hangar in Wasilla. This is where their wedding really took flight!
