Nathan and Chyanne

Sometimes, the best light is to be had in the early morning Chyanne and Nathan got up early enough that we could start before dawn… and even in a blizzard!

Jose & Malissa are Engaged!

Meet Jose and Malissa! Alaska’s most fun couple! They chose to spend their engagement session at the Fur Rhondy carnival… playing and laughing in the cold! If their engagement session during the cold winter was this much fun, can you imagine how much fun their wedding in the middle of summer is going to be?

Her gown was gorgeous! It was a team effort to steam it to perfection!

Such delicate rings! So dainty!

Stunning!!

Samantha’s sister put the flowers together and they were beautiful!

We talked Samantha into going outside despite the cold and I just ADORE the Gown against the white of the snow and the evergreens.

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

Absolutely stunning!

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

What a bright smile!

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

She removed his blindfold and…

He loved what he saw!

In another room, John had a new experience… he filled out his own marriage license! As a marriage commissioner, he helps other couples fill out theirs on a daily basis!

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

When they came back to the reception, John swept her into a dip! What an entrance!

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

The chef at O’Malley’s had been cooking up a beautiful feast! It was some of the best cooking I had had experienced at O’Malley, and that is saying something.

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

So much love was shared with the toasts!

The First Dance

Samantha was swept and twirls around the dance floor by a very sweet family friend. It was magical!

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

And then the party really began. Even Grandma and grandpa got out on the floor.

At the end of the evening, Samantha and John took a walk outside in the crisp evening air to spend a few moments alone. What a beautiful beginning to a lifetime of love.

We were taking photos in the hallway when Trynnity’s dad came out of the room to see her for the first time. These two are so tenderhearted, they both just wept.

Trynnity gave all of her bridesmaids really beautiful bracelets! Each one felt so loved and special.

 She came out from behind a bouquet of balloons for her first glimpse with Daniel.

He stayed focused on his groomsmen while she crept up behind him.

And then they cried and fell into each other’s arms.

Of course we had to do some photos up in the pirate ship!

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

And a little playing with swords! Looks like Wendy has the upper hand here!

As friends and family gathered on the deck, the sun came out! Grandma told me that she had prayed for the rain to stop and it did! Everyone got a chuckle at the cute little girls hopping off the stairs!

What a backdrop for saying your vows!

Somehow Daniel kept it together without crying, but it was tough!

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

  I don’t think there was a dry eye in attendance!
Ambience Photography,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Wasilla Alaska,

After the first kiss, someone said, “Oops! You forgot to exchange rings!” So they exchanged rings, and then went in for a second kiss!

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

  Mr. and Mrs. Peña!
Ambience Photography,Heather Dunn,Photography in Alaska,Wasilla Alaska,

Trynnity and Daniel decided to take a few moments to themselves. They hadn’t really relaxed the entire day… so a little downtime to enjoy their new spouse was very welcome.

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

I took that as an opportunity to play with those rings! So pretty!

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

The food was all tasty thanks to the crew at Master’s Catering

As she went to serve him mashed potatoes, she pretended to throw some on him. It was adorable!

During dinner, the sky cleared off and we were treated to a gorgeous view of the glacier across the bay! Pure beauty, right there!

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

The toasts were sweet and loving, and sometimes downright hilarious!

One of the sweetest of all relationships is between father and daughter.  During their dance, Trynnity’s dad just hid his face in her shoulder and cried. His baby girl!

We took a break from the festivities and walked down to the ocean right at sunset. The sky was just starting to darken.

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

The lodge was all lit up with lights.
