Excursion Inlet Wedding

Eva & Dan were married at Eva’s family property in Excursion Inlet on July 31st, a secluded bay about 35 miles northwest of Juneau as the bird, or in this case, Turbine Otter flies. Some of the guests arrived by plane, and some arrived by boat. With everyone safely ashore, a beautiful ceremony took place in the forest in an opening that was cut only a few weeks prior. Their initials were carved into a tree and log benches constructed from the trees which were cut to make the opening large enough for their guests. After the ceremony, a dinner of fresh crab, salmon, halibut, shrimp and oysters, all locally caught, was served up with an impressive assortment of cheeses, meats, and deserts. For being an “off-grid” wedding, this was spectacular! The dancing went on right up until the last boat left for the evening, and likely longer as some of the guests camped out for the night. Eva and Dan had some amazing friends and family – you could see how genuinely happy everyone was for them, and happy to share the fun and love of their day. This was one of our favorite weddings of the summer, thank you guys for bringing us down! 🙂

Juneau Wedding: Olga & Dmitry

On Saturday I was in Juneau with Chris Beck for Olga and Dmitry’s wedding. This is definitely in my history books for the rainiest wedding I’ve ever photographed. Sure, Juneau is known for Rain.. but it must have rained 2 inches throughout the day without stopping once. Fortunately, these guys were tough and willing to do whatever it took to get good photos! By the end of the day, we were all soaked, and Olga decided to do one last act of bravery by getting into Auke Bay for a few bride-in-the-water shots. Originally from Russia, but now living in Pennsylvania, they came to Alaska for a destination wedding that included a few of their closest family members. A dinner at Zephyr’s followed.
