& Intimate Weddings
Welcome to the blog! We're Erin and Cori, a planning and photography duo based in Anchorage, Alaska. This is where we share love stories, behind the scenes, and tips on planning events and exploring Alaska.
This Hatcher Pass elopement has a little of everything: sun, hail, heartfelt vows, silly moments, breathtaking views, lush florals and all round astoundingly gorgeous people and surroundings. Celebrating Adriana and Chester’s love and witnessing the the appreciation they have for each other and their shared experiences was simply beautiful. We’re happy to share some of these moments here. To dive deeper into how this day came together and to read personal stories from the couple, please visit the feature on Bridal Musings wedding blog.
Adriana and Chester began the day at the quaint Hatcher Pass Lodge near Palmer, Alaska. Adriana had her hair and makeup done in a comfortable cabin overlooking the mountain pass view, while Chester hiked nearby trails and relaxed in a neighboring cabin. They both got dressed separately and had a sweet first look, soaking in the scenery around them and the start to their day.
Adriana and Chester explored the tundra in Hatcher pass prior to their ceremony, taking moments to soak in the scenery and be with each other before exchanging vows.
The ceremony space was defined by lush local flowers, featuring red peonies and lilacs that Erin arranged on the tundra. Right before the ceremony began rain clouds gathered, but they embraced whatever came their way with laughter and joy.
After their ceremony they shared a sweet first dance in the mountains of Alaska, followed by a lush picnic. The design is based around a few color and style preferences they shared. It was such a fun surprise to set up such a beautiful spread for them to enjoy! This Hatcher Pass elopement felt like just the right fit for Adriana and Chester.
In addition, their day was also captured through Super 8mm, which was a fun, authentic way to document their elopement day.
We feel so grateful to have had the trust of these two and the honor to create such a beautiful day for them. Congrats to Adriana and Chester, and huge thank you to each and every vendor who donated their time and talent!
