For their wedding day, Beau & Sarah opted outdoors to celebrate with just their closest friends and family in Girdwood, Alaska. With incredible scenery, a rich history, and purely Alaskan feel, Crow Creek Mine has quickly become one of my favorite locations for weddings and happened to be the perfect setting for their intimate family gathering.
The couple crafted most of the decor themselves, each detail had meaning, and you could just feel the heart and soul poured into every part of the day. Their ceremony was followed by a simple and relaxed reception complete with dinner caught by his family (oysters, salmon, & halibut) and grown (an endless bounty of vegetables) by hers. Even their wedding favors were made by the bees kept by her parents.
The whole celebration was one rich in genuine love and emotion. (Beau and his mother's dance had everyone in tears, including yours truly!) Zero drama, low stress, laid back, and straight up FUN to photograph! The love there, not just between the newlyweds, but their families as well, was almost tangible and I count myself as blessed to have been there to document it.
A day like that truly is a rare and beautiful thing to witness.
