Destination Wedding Juneau, AK | Hannah + Charlie

July 13, 2016

A wedding on the beach of Mendenhall Glacier lake.

Foggy mountain tops, misty waterfalls, beds of moss and the most beautiful landscapes.

Hannah + Charlie forwent the idea of a big wedding, they wanted an intimate ceremony focused on what matters most to them and to be surrounded by a small group of those they love.

This past weekend left me reflecting on what weddings are all about and how meaningful these intimate celebrations are.  Hannah + Charlie I am forever grateful to have spent this day with you, thank you for sharing your energy + love with me. I cherish your friendship and look forward to sitting around a campfire together soon.

For wild hearts and brave souls.

    Hello, do you happen to know the designer/name of Hannah’s dress? I’m absolutely enthralled by it. PS – your pictures are breathtaking. I’m getting married on Manitoulin Island, Ontario (Canada) otherwise I would hire you in a heartbeat.

    Thank you!
