Upscale, Fun, and Elegantly Rustic Barn Wedding at a Private Alaska Estate

Updated: Feb 14



Welcome! You are probably here because you LOVE DETAILS and love beautiful artistic imagery. If you are anything like me, my creative soul loves styled shoots. I am inspired by new designs: new ways of mixing different colors and patterns together. I also really, really love being introduced to new vendors and re-acquainted with oldies-but-goodies (which is how I think of myself! Ha!)


Well you are in luck, because today we have gorgeous bridal portraits; wedding dresses; super romantic, flowing table scape in dusty blue accents; stunning wedding bouquets and centerpieces; and Alaska designed stationery to thrill your thirst for details!


Okay, okay it is not all fluff and pretty stuff I swear. We had a ton of fun, keeping real couples in mind who are looking for a great time, good food and good local beer to keep their favorite people dancing under the midnight sun. I am absolutely in love with this amazing VW Bus bar for you, as well as drinks from a local brewery, one of my personal favorites.


If you are shopping around for a venue, we are showcasing a brand new venue that not a lot of people know about. It is a stunning private estate with a gorgeous barn venue and lots of outdoor space for exploring.


So we literally have it all for you today.


Special thanks to Lauren Roberts for this amazing, super romantic wedding video.



Keep on scrolling for even more images from the shoot. I encourage you to slow down. Savor the goodies and enjoy!


And don't forget to scroll all the way to the end to be introduced to the amazing team vendors who pulled it off!

MEET REBECCA


Hey there! I am Rebecca, I was born and raised in Alaska. I have always been a party planner at heart, even from childhood. In 2012, after some soul searching I realized my life long dream by founding La Boum Events. For me it is the perfect balance of my desire to be a working artist and my get-schutff-done approach to life. I have a quick brain, I am great with details, I love a challenge and approach problem solving with a flexible attitude... it was a perfect fit.

I specialize in one-of-a-kind weddings, inspired by the love stories and adventures of our incredible couples. Personally, I love working with joyful, adventurous, fun-seeking couples who want to create an incredible Alaskan experience for their big celebration.

When I am not working, I love to slow down and enjoy the simple Alaska life with my husband and kids. I am savoring the slow process of renovating an old farm house, running an urban homestead, and making wine.
