Jeffrey and Amanda came from Florida to elope in Alaska before Jeffrey begins his military career. Neither had been to the 49th state before, so getting married here was a fun adventure for them both. I suggested several locations that would provide the Alaskan background they hoped for and I’m so happy they chose Flattop because it was a perfect fit for them. They were also able to include their friends and family in the ceremony by using Skype and video chat on their phones despite the spotty reception on the mountain, which made for a sweet cheering crowd when the pastor announced them as Mr. & Mrs after the kiss! After the ceremony we made use of the scenery for some portraits, including a patch of blooming fireweed and interesting shaped trees near the parking lot. I wish them a lifetime of continued adventure together as they start their married life with the military.
