Spencer and Lily’s Intimate Ceremony
Spencer and Lily came from Anchorage to get married in Juneau Alaska. They had an intimate ceremony with 20 of their closest friends and family at the Shephard of the Valley Lutheran Church. The church was beautifully decorated with butterflies, flowers, and vintage inspired decor. Their rings were held in a hand made butterfly ring box and florals were provided by Frenchie’s Floral in Juneau Alaska. Behind the alter, windows revealed the snow-capped Alaskan mountains. Tears of joy flowed from the bride and from her father as he let go of his daughter. It was an incredibly beautiful and intimate ceremony.
The Mendenhall Glacier
After the ceremony, the bride and groom stole away in a vintage getaway car. We drove to the Mendenhall Glacier and the bride and showed me one of their favorite spots, a trail near the glacier with a view of their favorite mountain peak. Then we walked the short walk to the Mendenhall Glacier scenic lookout point where we got some beautifully intimate photos of Spencer and Lily enjoying their newlywed bliss.
And then the car broke down…
On our way back to the reception their borrowed vintage car broke down. It wouldn’t be a wedding day without a few hiccups! Lucky, we were stranded near an iconic scenic view so we took a couple photos while stranded on the side of the road. After being rescued, we made our way back to the church where I said my goodbyes and Spencer and Lily enjoyed their intimate reception with their friends and family. It was a beautiful Alaskan spring day.
Spencer and Lily’s wedding reminded me of the 1940s, somewhere between Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz. From the delicately embroidered wedding dress, to the blue wedding shoes, to their actual vintage getaway car, I felt like I was in a classic movie. Spencer and Lily have created a beautiful life for themselves in Anchorage Alaska and it was such a pleasure to be a witness to your beautiful wedding day in Juneau Alaska.
