John and Yvette’s little boys are certainly adorable… and they took a moment to ham it up for me.
All the little details of the beautiful Jewish Ceremony, were prepared and laid out in advance… Yvette provided matching Kippahs for all the guests… beside that is a photo of the glass that was broken at the end of the ceremony…
The museum features floor to ceiling windows… I loved the reflections of the little girls in the glass.
The Ceremony was very special with all of the Rabbi’s blessings and fun stories of Yvette and John’s first date and a special talk from Yvette’s Alaskan (make-believe or honorary, haha) uncle.
The ceremony begins!
After the ceremony, we made a few family photos.
I absolutely loved this outtake because to me it portrays the relationships and personalities bride, groom and their parents… who enjoy each other and get along so well. I cracked up after taking this photo, and one of Yvette’s brothers piped up with this little nugget:
“What do you call the relationship between the parents of the bride and the parents of the groom?
They’re not really cousins, except in the broadest possible sense of the word. And it’s so broad that it doesn’t describe them specifically.
The reception was GORGEOUS! Anchorage Museum is beautiful in the best of times… but Yvette’s little touches of color sure made it sparkle.
Martin from Alaska Professional Entertainment is always fabulous… Here he is entertaining the kids! (Oh, and by the way, the little guy spinning the glow band… that is his new trick. He showed it to all who would watch. I love it!)
I just love a good laughing photo.
Thanks to John and Yvette for the fun! It was a gorgeous and memorable wedding!

And this blog post would not be complete without mentioning my amazing little second shooter for the day: Oxana! She was great! Several of the photos you just enjoyed were taken by her creative lens.
