Mallory {The Wedding}

Kaycie & Tyler Mallory

Oh my goodness! We had SO MUCH FUN at this wedding… and that perfectly describes Kaycie and Tyler’s relationship and personalities! SO MUCH FUN!

 

We met up with Kaycie at Fox Hollow Chalet and she was already set and ready for her big day!

 

 

Her simple pearls perfectly accentuated her classy and fun look:

 

Tyler was led to Kaycie for the first look by two bridesmaids…

It was really a sweet moment.

 

 

There were so many playful moments!

 

And then these little hopping flower girls came out…

 

Aren’t they just the cutest little princesses?

 

And this… makes me smile:

Kaycie was not to be outdone… she is the master at silly faces:

And the baby looks at us like : “These guys are ALL crazy!” Haha!:)

 

 

 

Family photos:

Just down the road, the ceremony was to be held at Crosspoint Church.  Kaycie and her mom spent a few moments together… with tears and hugs. Snuggled up and processing the deep sweetness of the moment.

As they waited for ceremony, these guys… know how to be fun!

 

 

Ceremony time!

You can really see the love in her eyes!

Mr & Mrs Mallory!

The reception at Fox Hollow started with giggles as the wedding party came in a different door than expected!

Each centerpiece included a wedding photo from family and friends of the bride, fresh flowers and these super fun yarn balls that Kaycie and her crew made! I love the personal touch!

Kaycie and Tyler wrote each other notes and sealed them in this box to open on their 10th anniversary! I got a hold of the box and combined it with the rings for some fun photos.:)

First Dance!


I don’t know why, but it always seems like the father daughter dance just gets to me every time! Maybe it is because I have my own daughters growing up before my eyes and I am anticipating this moment of my own… This father daughter dance was certainly no exception.  Such a sweet moment.

 

This reception was EXTRA fun! These guys can really dance!  Greg Porter from Greg Porter Entertainment was absolutely Hilarious!

 

 

Tyler’s little nephew is adorable with that perfectly round bald little head. So cute!  And the suit!!! Oh my.

 

These perfect little cupcakes were a hit…

… especially with the flower girl!

 

The groom and groomsmen had a surprise for Kaycie…

It was a whole song and dance routine with the culmination of Tyler removing Kaycie’s garter.

Conga line!

Alsterberg Wedding

August 16, 2014

You know its gonna be a good wedding when a guy is marrying his childhood sweetheart… and you know its gonna be a fun one when he marries her at his favorite shooting range!

 

We met up with Sydney over at B-Bellas in Palmer as she was getting on her gorgeous!  The girls there did a fantastic job of it too!

 

Josh was looking good!   He wields that axe pretty well too.

 

Sydney’s little nephew was the ring bearer, and he was so adorable the entire day. (Though, don’t tell him I said so.)

And this little flower girl stole the show with her shining eyes and big smile.

Almost ready!

Beauty!

Sidney has a natural “girl next door” look to her…

The Bride & Bridesmaids photos were so fun!

The boots! Oooh! <3

Family:

 

The ceremony was stunning!:)

 

And make sure to notice the awesome barn wood background they built just for Josh and Sydney… Country Lovin’ for sure!:)

 

After ceremony we took a few minutes to have some fun with the Harley:

 

They were a fun crew!

Stunning!

While one of their little boys was napping, this one got in on some fun photos!

Love those blue eyes!

Love this one! The wild west wedding!

 

Boy do they  make each other look good!

 

Sydney’s flowers and reception decor was extra beautiful!

 

Grouse Ridge served up some sumptuous dinner!

Andrea from Cakealicious made this stunning birch cake:

 

This photo just makes my day:

 

 

And then on to the first dance.  Sydney wept with joy pretty much the entire dance. It was so sweet.

Martin from Alaska Professional Entertainment always keeps that music coming! Total fun!

Many thanks to Sydney and Josh for allowing us to be a part of your gorgeous wedding.

Ernisse {Wedding}

Gwendolyn and Bobby… Oh how I love this couple.  You might remember them from their super fun engagement session with the movie poster theme

Then they turned those photos into some pretty incredible save the date announcements with the help of their buddy Matt Lloyd.  Click here to see a pic of those.

You can tell just by their engagement photos they have a truckload of personality… but if there is any doubt…  keep reading.

They were married at Bobby’s mom’s lovely home situated amongst the birches and on the shores of a gorgeous lake.

 

I checked in with the beautiful Gwendolyn just as she was in her final stages of makeup.

And then hung with the groomsmen & women for Bobby’s final prep moments.

This cutie pie pup was watching all in between naps.

Looking dandy, Bobby!  Though, at this point, it should be pointed out that I began to call him Bobert, just for fun.

Having a grooms-lady in the mix, makes the mafia pose just that much cooler.   Bobby found these awesome Vera Wang Tux’s at Mens Warehouse.

Gandalf would be proud.   Bobby gave these great pipes to all of his attendants.

 

 

Gwendolyn’s absolutely stunning Alfred Angelo gown was purchased at Anderson’s Bridal.  It was the picture of royalty.

Gwendolyn really wanted to honor the women who had gone before her in her lineage.. So she included bits of her grandmother’s wedding gown in her cute little capped sleeves and on her ring pillow… and even on her flowers.

 

Wow WOW wow!

Gwendolyn gets all perfect, ready and gorgeous… and then she gets down on the ground to say hello to the bear rug. Did I mention how much I love this lady?

I never complain when I see those six foot tall flowers… Fireweed is so lovely. Perfect for this regal photo.

Sometimes I run out of words to express how beautiful the bride is… but holy smokes! Gwendolyn is one purdy lady!

Gwendolyn is so creative, she even made Bobby’s ring!

 

 

Bride and bridesmaids and bridesman.   Arctic Rose helped Gwendolyn find these gorgeous Liz Fields Bridesmaid’s gowns.

Gwendolyn’s family are all just lovely people!

As you might have guessed, Gwendolyn and Bobby chose not to see each other before the ceremony.  But they did choose to write each other a little note to express their love to each other on their wedding day.

All I know is he loves her with all his heart!

Occasionally we have summers like this in Alaska… The forecast predicted rain, but this is what they got! Stunning blue skies!

 

Bobby built the awesome drift wood archway… and then as a surprise and at last minute he added this awesome plaque that had their wedding theme words burned into it.

Shhh, don’t tell Bobby!  As Gwendolyn’s surprise, she had a super fun Steam Punk style hat to bring out at the reception.  (It was made by her mom, Monica!)

And then it was time… The moment had arrived.

Both of Gwendolyn’s parents escorted her down the aisle.  (And I can’t be sure, but I am pretty sure I spotted Bobby wipe away a tear or two)

I’m a pretty sneaky lady… I had permission to take photos of these two’s first few moments together as man and wife… but it is all the more sweet when they didn’t even realize I was there yet.

They took a few moments to snuggle Bobby’s sweet old Doggie and then make things official.

 

 

Then we spent a few moments to make some pretty photos as Mr & Mrs.

 

Love this one:

There she goes again… being all stunning.

Meanwhile, the guests were over at the reception enjoying each other and the fun things Bobby and Gwendolyn had made for them.  

Did you see that awesome beer tap bar one in the photos above? IT was super cool!  One of their good friends made that for  the wedding!  (I want one!)


Check out this fun chandelier Gwendolyn made!  Recognize the pieces and parts?

These little people at the wedding enjoy the reception in their own way:

Seriously talented Gwendolyn made this great cake topper.  Her bridesmaid, Christine Aumick, pulled double duty and made this adorable cake to match! Isn’t it great!?

 

Gwendolyn has traveled the world… and at each destination she has enjoyed a special bottle of something.  This special champagne was supposed to be enjoyed at her next exotic destination (Antarctica).  When she met Bobby, she chose to savor it at their wedding.

Even the sky joined in with the color scheme!

 

I expect these two will have much fun with each other.

 

Flower toss!

Then the couple hopped into the speedboat to go to their super secret honeymoon location across the lake where I would meet up with them for a few more romantic photos.

And then this happened.  What a fun way to celebrate!

 

At the honeymoon location, we took just a few more photos of the two.

At some point on the speed boat ride Gwendolyn got pretty wet from a wave.  Her response: “Now, there isn’t any reason to NOT to get in the lake!”  What a great way to look at life!

And for one last photo, the couple posed in front of their inviting honeymoon cabin.

 

Gwendolyn and Bobby… we truly enjoyed our day with you.  Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part!

What a beautiful wedding and what beautiful photos!

The Cox Wedding

Eric and Amanda were married at the gorgeous Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge on one of the most GORGEOUS days in the summer.

 


Mount McKinley even showed up for the wedding!  It was stunning!:)

 

After we worked with the “boys” we went in and met up with Amanda and her crew.  Check out this very detailed and thoughtful “Wedding Survival Kit” made by one of her dear friends!  Such a handy thing to have available!

 

 

One of Amanda’s bridesmaids did her hair and makeup… Pretty nice job of it too!

Oooh, I just love Amanda’s bling!  She had a hair band and earrings to match!

And check out that diamond!  Well done Eric!

Amanda replaced the traditional white lacing on her gown with ribbons in her wedding theme… many shades of purple!! What a fun way to customize your dress! (Genious!)

Looking good, Lady!

I know I included a bunch of these in the blog… but she is just so beautiful it is hard to choose between them!

These bridesmaids photos are so fun… filled with such personality!

 

Sweet flower girl…  Itsn’t it awesome that the Iris were blooming just for Amanda’s wedding?  Perfect flower timing!

 

Ceremony time came and the sun was hot, and the sky was blue!   I love Amanda’s expression as she gets to the end of the aisle.  She is just GLOWING!

 

Denali was the background for their vows.  So gorgeous!

 

They took a few moments for friends and family to greet them and wish them a happy life filled with love!

This little peanut / flower girl just stole my heart.  What a sweetie!

Mr. and Mrs. Cox look mighty fine together, if you ask me.

As you will see later… Amanda had a butterfly theme for her wedding, so it was super awesome to catch these beauties on those purple Iris! How perfect is that!

And then off to the beautiful reception under the tents.  It was such a nice treat to not even need them with all that amazing sunshine!

The lovely candy bar was quite a draw… it had a mixture of fresh fruit and other goodies to dip into the purple chocolate fountain!

If I didn’t know better, I would have thought that Amanda and Eric held auditions for their toasts… every single one was hilarious!

The food at the lodge was delicious!

Love that butterfly inspired cake!  What a great personal touch!

Oh yes, they did!  Cake smashers!

The garter was a hilarious moment… Amanda covering her eyes… while the guy looking on with his big mouth in an “o” just crack me up! I love catching little moments like that!

 

And then it was the end of a very fun filled, sunshine blessed day!

 

Congratulations to Eric and Amanda! I wish you a marriage filled with the joy you experienced on your wedding day!

what a beautiful bride Amanda is and the photos are stunning

A few from recent shoots…

I have just been so busy lately, that my blogging has taken a bit of a hit!:)I thought I would take a few moments and share some of my recent favorites for those that might not follow me on Facebook.:)

 

Meet Laura and her boys:

Jordan and Dane decided to do their session at Eklutna Lake… which is always stunning.:)

They even brought along a canoe!

Deana and her best bud Ashli did their session at the Transportation Museum in Wasilla.  Ashli was up to Alaska for a visit from Wyoming.


After the session, Deana and Ashli got matching tattoos with a stick figure of a girl talking on a tin can phone… when they are together, the string connects!

 

 

Marla told me that photos of her family are her very favorite thing… so this gramma got her wish and got photos of ALL of her kids and grandkids.  :)

 

Adrianne told me that she loved books so very much that she wanted to have books in all of her photos.  She didn’t get to have them in all… but for this line she did.:)

Gramma Marla all surrounded by her beautiful granddaughters in the summer sunlight.

And Grandpa Jim with his grandsons!

There are many more photos to see from these sets over on Facebook… So… Go take a look and like my page! It does my business good!:)
