Simple and Scenic Elopement | In Hatcher Pass

Kristy and Michael were such a sweet and quiet couple. They had a short stay in Alaska, just enough time for a beautiful, but simple ceremony. They wanted to be married amongst the mountains so we recommended Hatcher Pass, which is about an hour and a half north of Anchorage and is surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks.

In a rare moment I was honored to officiate this couple's ceremony. To top it off I got to work with Laura Wilson with my team at La Boum Events, who was their elopement coordinator.

This couple was all huge smiles for the entire day. Their love was true and palpable. It just radiated off them like sunshine even though it was an overcast day. 

Kristy wanted soft and romantic flowers with a bit of greenery. I loved her hand tied bouquet and the matching boutonniere.  

Big round blush Alaska peonies are just perfect for a summer elopement.

Our Simple & Scenic Elopement package was right up their alley.

After the ceremony the couple enjoyed a toast to love before heading out with Erica for more photos. 

Erica then hiked them around Hatcher Pass and stopped off on a few scenic spots as they were coming down the mountain.  As always she captured many lovely and intimate moments.

Congrats you two! May you continue to smile and laugh throughout your marriage!

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 COUPLES ONLY ELOPEMENT to get started.
