On Friday I was in Cooper Landing for Julia & Simon’s wedding at Alaska Heavenly Lodge. This one goes down in the story-book for crazy bump in the road.. or, shooter in the road. At about 11:30am the Seward Highway was closed for hours on end due to a report of a gunmen/hostage situation at Turnagain Pass. In the end nothing happened and they never found the guy, but it put a big spin on the day’s plans. The caterer was stuck on the other side along with about half of the guests. There was a distinct change of flow, quickly, as everyone went through the different stages of acceptance.. At first Julia was pretty upset, then she and Simon began to work through it, then they had an awesome and fun day despite the change of schedule and missing guests. This was a great wedding at one of our favorite places to shoot! We also got in some time before the ceremony down at Kenai Lake, at our secret photo-fishing spot.
