Barry and Natasha hail from Naples, Florida. Barry works construction and Natasha works for a restaurant group.

The two met when he was working in one of her restaurants in 2015. They have a 2-year-old son together and currently reside in North Carolina.

Barry and Natasha didn’t want all the attention that a big wedding brings. They chose to make it “their day” and started talking about eloping.

At first they considered an Alaska cruise but thought they would see more of the state if they traveled independently.

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

This package is for the nature lover who wants a simple ceremony in a beautifully scenic location in Alaska. Natasha and Barry love the outdoors and preferred renting a cabin as opposed to a hotel room.

They will have a reception back home for friends and family.
