Domingo Wedding

When I think of Erwin and Graces wedding, I just think Classy… tasteful… and very well planned. They both worked tirelessly for months… perhaps even years… to prepare the perfect wedding.  Grace saw to every detail, and Erwin spent hours making surprises for Grace.   These two are driven for the future and I am excited to see where their relationship takes them!

When I got to Grace’s room, she had just been handed one of those surprises from Erwin…  A sweet gift that he had made just for her.

When she opened it, it was an engraved key chain and a photo book with engagement photos and the story of their relationship.

Erwin was just about ready when I met up with him. He was relaxed and having a good time with his groomsmen.

We only had a few minutes for photos, and then we were off to the church.

Little people at weddings are some of my favorite.  His bowtie is just a bit too tight.

Grace and her family arrived in one of Alaska Splendor’s luxurious limos.  There were raindrops to greet her, but that couldn’t dampen her spirits!

 The little flower girls were so cute in the dresses that Grace made for them.  When the littlest one got to the front of the church, she upended her basket and dumped out all the rest of the petals!

There she is. Breathtaking.

Erwin definitely agrees. He had tears running down his cheeks.

Grace’s mom and dad met her half way down the aisle.. I love how her mom’s hand is clasped to her breast as she goes to meet her.

As a surprise, all of a sudden the dance floor was filled with the beautiful girls dancing the hula!

You should have heard the applause when the bride joined them!

She had been practicing for months! She did a fantastic job! Jose moved his chair to the front so he could get a better view of his lady dancing so beautifully!

And then… to everyone’s surprise, Jose also joined in!

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

Jose did a sort of hip hop version of the hula in time with the girls. It was fantastic and so well done!

When Seth and his mom had their photos together, he gave her a kiss and she melted into tears. Its a mom thing. I completely understand.

Seth came down the aisle with the biggest smile on his face!
Ambience Photography,Antlers Wedding,Ceremony,Cook Wedding,Glory View Farm,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Rainy Wedding,Rustic Wedding,Scenery,Wasilla Alaska,

…And then his smile became even brighter when he saw his beautiful bride. That’s the look every girl dreams of seeing when she walks down the aisle.

Amanda tried to hold her tears by not looking up at him, but as soon as she did… she broke!
Ambience Photography,Antlers Wedding,Ceremony,Cook Wedding,Glory View Farm,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Rainy Wedding,Rustic Wedding,Scenery,Wasilla Alaska,

During the prayer, the little flower girl reverently bowed her head. It was so sweet.

Amanda’s mom couldn’t stop smiling! This was seconds before they were pronounced man and wife.

These two took a moment alone to enjoy being Alaska’s newest married couple.

The father daughter dance is always a highlight… but when Amanda’s dad broke down in tears, it was too sweet for words. I think a lot of the guests joined in.

We stepped away from the reception to take a few more photos, and it was so worth it! When we explored down the road we found a little building with the words “The Cook Shack”! How perfect for Mr and Mrs Cook!

Woodmansee {Wedding}

Gabriel and LauraBeth Woodmansee

You know it is going to be a great wedding when there is a huge sign with my favorite Dr Seuss quote… “When we find someone who’s weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness and call it love, true love.”
I don’t know if Gabe and LauraBeth are weird… but I do know that I enjoy them both a great deal!

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

LauraBeth decided to get married at her parents house on BigLake. It was the perfect setting to proclaim love.

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

Gabe spent the entire morning stuck in the basement so he didn’t accidentally see his future wife until their first glimpse. He was a happy camper when I came down to do his photographs because that meant he got to leave the space!

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

Not only that, it was his birthday! Hopefully he should be able to remember his Anniversary date!

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

Upstairs, LauraBeth was just about finished getting ready! She is such a beautiful lady!

Friends and Family made their way to the gazebo behind the Reagan Building for a sweet reception… We followed, but on the way, the bride and groom and I met at the Transportation Museum to make some super fun photos with the old vehicles and trains!

For a guest book, guests wrote on their Jenga Piece… and add date ideas into a wedding bucket list! Love this one: Skinny dip in a waterfall!
