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.

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.
