Are you planning a wedding in Juneau, Alaska? You will want to after seeing this beautiful Real Wedding feature captured by Michaela from BrightEyed Photography! Amy and Jess’ love story began eight years ago. Amy says, “Jess and I met nearly 8 years ago at our friends pool party…”
“I was in the kitchen, frosting a cake when he walked in. In his description, he couldn’t take his eyes off me and I was the only thing on his mind at the time.” While they did not start dating immediately, they kept thinking about each other; five years later, the timing was right! They rekindled their romance after reconnecting on Facebook and had their first official date making haunted Gingerbread Houses and watching a favorite movie, Hocus Pocus. Amy tells us, “I knew he was the one.”
Amy + Jess’s Juneau Alaska Wedding
Amy and Jess recited their vows on the beach overlooking the ocean in Juneau, Alaska. They integrated handmade details throughout, including a homemade arch created from wood found in a friend’s backyard. The bride’s brother even carved their initials into the arch as a sentimental touch. This wedding was as nature-inspired as can be, with rocks, wood, and floral creations all collected from the area. The bride’s flowers and boutonnieres were created with wood (sola, a type of wood flower) that made lasting keepsakes. The cold, windy and rainy day didn’t keep these two from having the Best Day Ever. See how their wonderful wedding day unfolded as they walked down the aisle in front of family, friends, and their son, Jackson. Enjoy!
