Tony and Julie were married on Sunday!
We just got back from our crazy family trip driving up the Alcan Highway and ending up in Alaska. In the middle of that trip, I got to photograph Julie and Tony’s wedding! They have been together for 11 years and thought it was high time they tied the knot. So they teamed up with the amazing Erin of Blomma Designs and got to planning!
I was so excited to get to photograph an Alaska destination wedding. What I wasn’t prepared for was the heat…no one was. Apparently Anchorage was in the middle of a heat wave (mid 70s to be exact) which is tough in a land of no air conditioning! The sun was bright and so were the personalities, I just loved getting to know this group of people!
I loved how the dresses framed the living room, and the moments that naturally happened there.
Such a sweet first sight, Julie definitely got the giggles.
The ceremony took place outside at the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Blomma Designs and Bloomsbury Blooms had the place decked out with a gorgeous eucalyptus garland, and bright bold wildflowers…even some raspberry vines. Everything was fresh and vibrant.
We made sure to utilize the historic log cabin for some portraits.
The reception was so lovely. The birch bark cake by Midnight Sun Cakery was exactly what Julie wanted, and the amazing dinner by Masters Catering had people grabbing seconds and thirds. And I LOVED the moose theme throughout the day! They had a moose antler as their guestbook, little moose cake toppers, and moose ring pillows.
Seriously, the SALMON.
A sweet moment between Julie and her mama.
Because the sun is so harsh here, we waited for it to mellow out a bit and then journeyed out for a few more pictures and to utilize the many beautiful backdrops at the Heritage Center.
Julie and Tony, thank you so much for trusting me with your wedding day! I am still smiling from all the antics!!! Enjoy your sneak peek!
