Intimate Fall Wedding in Girdwood, Alaska | Kirsten and Tucker

Let me tell you, there is no place as intimate and romantic as Raven Glacier Lodge in Girdwood, Alaska. Imagine walking into a candlelit forest in the middle of fall, with leaves gently hitting the ground. The lodge is surrounded by lush trees and a small river flowing through creating the most peaceful setting. As if the grounds weren't special enough, Cathy Frost works inside to prepare the best wedding food in Alaska.

When I first met Kirsten and Tucker, just six weeks before their wedding they had a totally different wedding day in mind. As time closed in, we quickly realized a back up plan would be needed and I had just the perfect venue in mind. When the bride and groom toured Raven Glacier Lodge, they immediately felt as though they were meant to exchange vows amongst their closest friends and family at the Alaskan lodge.

Photography and design were two of the most important aspects to Kirsten and Tucker. I knew from their style and personalities that The Adams Co. was the perfect match to capture their day. Together we spent hours designing and curating their unique and intimate wedding day. Fall colors, candles, and bohemian aspects were incorporated to bring together their ideal vision.

Kirsten and Tucker took the liberty to enjoy their wedding morning together in their favorite place - the mountains. They chartered a helicopter with Alpine Air to visit several glaciers, waterfalls and remote mountains. Kirsten put on her wedding dress outside of the helicopter once they had landed. They spent hours frolicking surrounded by fall colors. After returning to Girdwood, they shared beers at Girdwood Brewing Company and then prepared for their intimate wedding at the lodge.

Following their ceremony, Kirsten and Tucker enjoyed a delicious home-made candlelit dinner with their friends and family.
