Pretty much the whole day Trynnity’s dad cried his eyes out.  He loves her so incredibly much. Giving your daughter away is a hard but sweet milestone in a dad’s life.  I’m thinking that is one thing that makes the Father Daughter dance so special.  How’s a photographer supposed to focus with tears in her eyes?

As the evening progressed we dashed down to the beach to make some fun photos in the waning light.

As the evening turned to night, the sky became even more dynamic.

You can be sure I was doing a happy dance after that one. So gorgeous!

Kelci and James

Kelci had been dreaming about this day for as long as she could remember and she worked so hard to make that dream come true! She got her beautiful and most perfect day with robin egg blue skies and sunshine. Everything was just stunning.

Kelly from Solara was started on Kelci’s makeup before I even got there!  She did an amazing job!

Meanwhile, in the groom’s cabin, the guys were getting ready. One groomsman was working hard on writing his toast… while others helped James with his hair.

Kelci had spent countless hours preparing for her beautiful wedding reception.

Ambience Photography,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Wasilla Alaska,

As  a super sweet touch, she gave each wedding guest a different teacup as a gift.

Ambience Photography,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Wasilla Alaska,

 

For their wedding day advice, each guest wrote on a slip of paper and put it in the bottle for their anniversary… 1 year, 5 years and 10 years from now, they will break the bottle open and read the advice from each guest.

Portia and Sebastian

Crow Creek Mine

We here at Ambience Photography are so thankful to have the kinds of clients like Sebastian and Portia. These two and their family and friends are down home, sweet as pie, funny as comedians…  just the kind of people you’d want to spend an afternoon hanging out with.  We are so lucky they invited us to do so!

Ambience Photography,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Preparation,Wasilla Alaska,

When I met up with Sebastian, he was just about to open a gift from his bride: a gorgeous new belt buckle to go with his amazing country style wedding attire.  Pretty classy!

Since it was the day before the Fourth of July, the colors were very patriotic!

Family is so hugely important to these guys. I just love the special relationships that these two have with all of their parents… but I especially loved these.

The upper meadow with the wedding pavilion was all ready with the American flag as the backdrop to their vows.

When the little ones came down the aisle, Portia’s daughter was shy and hid behind her brother. It was so cute.

Then the two knelt for a blessing from Portia’s parents.

The Star Spangled banner was played and there was so much respect and honor for our nation…  I saw more than one tear.

Blackwell {the Wedding}

Brittany and Ryan Blackwell-

Crow Creek Mine; Girdwood Alaska

I keep packing my umbrellas for all the weddings this summer, but as of yet… we haven’t needed them!  Once again, the forecast called for pouring down rain but we ended up with lovely sunshine! If you  have lived in Alaska for any length of time, you know exactly the exultant feeling we get when we finally feel that warm light come out from behind the clouds… we all come alive! That was the gift the mother nature gave these two for their wedding day. It was a pretty one!

It takes many people to make an event this beautiful. Thank you to all the vendors that made this day sparkle!

Dress -Bateau Bridal  || Designer – Mikaella Bridal (Ontario, Canada) || Alterations – Celestial Designs || Harpist – Joanna Mergler Mayer || Hair – Salon Ginger || Make up – Lorina Alailefaleula || Men’s suits – Hugo Boss || Cake – Celestial Sweets || Popcorn Bar – Jazzy popcorn || Flowers – Bloomsbury blooms || Caterer – Master’s Catering || Music – H3 || Photography – Ambience Photography

Brittany was just about to don her gown when we met up in her hotel room at the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood Alaska.  She had all of her pretty little accessories laid out, ready to go! I just loved all of her little details and beautiful selections.

And then it came time for Brittany and Ryan to see each other for the first time.   As Ambience Photography’s second shooter, Igor, led Ryan to Brittany, you could feel the excitement!

Brittany and Ryan, we hope your lives are filled with even more love than we witnessed on your beautiful wedding day!

 

Many thanks to Second Camera, Igor.  We made a great team!

 

Park {the wedding}

I love people with a vision! Chase and Dominique just bought this gorgeous barn last fall with plans to fix it up and turn it into Alaska’s newest wedding venue… and for the very first use, they hosted their very own wedding celebration on summer solstice! There will be more information about it soon… I know everyone will be so excited to see more from this amazing new venue: Solstice Creek Ranch, now open year round!

 

Chase was just about ready by the time we met up with him. Having your wedding reception on the grand opening day of your new venture is quite a task! Chase made it seem effortless.

Their sweet doggie, Oregon, was on hand for the day, and it only added to the homespun family atmosphere of the day.
