Get ready to catch some feels from Jordan and Jesse's rustic chic wedding! These two ran away to the scenic mountains of Seward Alaska with their loved ones for an intimate ceremony where they could start a new chapter as a family. After an emotional first look and ceremony, there was a fun and casual celebratory feast full of sweets and bubbly!
It was easy for us to capture the love between these two..I love capturing the couple's joy and emotions, as well as the thoughtful and meaningful details that represent who the couple is together.

While a rainy forecast might have stressed some brides and grooms, Renee and James didn’t seem to mind the downpour on their Wellspring Ministries wedding in Anchorage AK. Instead, the couple laughed, kissed, and danced through their day, sometimes beneath a pair of umbrellas, but often just embracing the droplets as they fell. Regardless of the storm, an emotional vow exchange ensured that there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience of their ceremony.

Alyssa and Trey’s Homer beach wedding at the Driftwood Inn was a beautiful mix of rustic elegance and relaxed luxury. The beachfront ceremony had a natural and organic feel, which they achieved by using white, gold, and green decor. For the reception, the couple kept with the natural feel but also added pops of color in the tablescapes to create a festive energy.
When Ingrid and Chris were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted an intimate and elegant wedding in the mountains of Alaska. Located in historic resort town, Lady of Our Snows Chapel was the perfect venue to accomplish just this!
Mother nature's summer colors, blue and green decor with flickering candles, and an enchanting atmosphere were the name of the game for this intimate and romantic destination wedding.
It was love at first site for Ellie and Nathan when they found the Inn at Tern Lake for their wedding day! Combining their love of vintage décor and woodsy vibes, this venue provided tons of antique and vintage pieces for the couple to decorate the intimate ceremony meadow and the rustic reception pavilion. Just before the ceremony, Ellie and Nathan had an emotional first look during which they took a moment to let the excitement of the day sink in. The bride looked beautiful in a lace gown from, and her bridesmaids gave us serious wedding party goals in matching Vintage Blue dresses. It was easy for us at Blue Iris Photography to capture the romance and charm of this special day with the help of our second shooter Macala!
Originally from Vermont, Ian came to Alaska in 2005 after college graduation for a summer of adventuring with a good buddy, Nick (his best man at the wedding!). Ian had family up to visit during that time and they wanted to see the downtown weekend market. I was working at a jewelry booth when my eyes met with Ian's from across the isle. We both smiled and he walked away, only to circle back around back to my booth. Small talk was exchanged and that eventually lead to Ian giving me "his" phone number. We spend the rest of the summer together until he left for his pre-planned adventure in Colorado. He wasn't gone for long. After a few visits back and forth, Ian moved to Alaska for good in May of 2006. We have been together even since and have spent the last 10+ years creating a wonderful fun-filled life.
Last July, Ian proposed with his grandmothers engagement ring while we were watching Netflix on the couch (after I had unintentionally botched a few of the more adventurous proposals he had planned).
It has been almost 11yrs since we first met and time has flown by! I really hope the next 70yrs go by a little slower!
Our love story started at Haskell Indian Nations University, where Victor was captain of the football team and I was an honor roll student. Our first night we met I approached him as he was playing pool and we ended up spending hours talking and it felt like we were the only two there. We both knew we had something special and from that point on I became his number one football fan and he became the snow under my board. Without him I went nowhere.After one year into our relationship we decided it was time to adopt our dog, Bubba. This became a crucial part of our relationship and Bubba even played a role in Victor’s proposal to me. Leading up to Victors senior season, we took a family walk for Mother's Day up to the Haskell football stadium. Victor called Bubba over to him and said," Because of Mother's Day your baby-boy Bubba has a present for you”. I had no idea what was coming until Victor got down on one knee, then I started to cry as I said, “Yes!”. Since then we have devoted ourselves to making each other as happy as possible, because Victor and I will be making our own history together forever.
CRYSTAL + ADAM
After knowing each other for 8 years we were ready to tie the knot in Alaska at our new home. We wanted our wedding to be about celebrating our love with our family and friends. We wanted to honor the loved ones that could not make it and the ones that traveled far to come wish us well. We didn’t want to have a traditional wedding filled with things that “you’re supposed to do”. We wanted to spend every minute enjoying each other, the day, and our friends + family. Both of our Mothers married us, and everything said and read at our ceremony was something that had true meaning to us.
