Charming Country Wedding in Alaska, Fairbanks || Alex & Alena
1st Destination Wedding in Alaska, Fairbanks
This was my first out of state wedding. I loved every minute of this very Charming Country Wedding in Alaska, Fairbanks. Beautiful country, magnificent nature, warm and friendly people. I should say a lot more about Alaskans: they value each other and will always go an extra mile to help anyone in need no matter the situation.
Few months before her wedding Alena called me and asked if I could come and document her wedding. It was the easiest “YES!” I’ve ever said to any bride! Who would miss this kind of opportunity? Definitely not me! I was glad it was summer time, but little did I know that I’ll be bitten by myriads of mosquito and nothing would help me in that situation. 🙂 Life is funny to me sometimes. There are so many times that I sit back to think, astounded that this is my life. And of course, it’s far from ideal sometimes, but it is blessed. There is such a joy in knowing, “I was made to do this.” When God puts a burning passion in your heart and purposeful work in your hands, it’s hard not to take pride and find elation in what you do.
Precious and Radiant
It was pure joy to see how Alex and Alena worked side by side in preparation for their Grand Day. Their love and respect for each other exude into the atmosphere and made everything more beautiful and sweet. Alena is by far one of the the most precious people I have ever met. It’s really no wonder that Alex fell in love with her. It has been such a privilege to walk with them on the road to marriage. They could not have chosen a more beautiful day to wed and Alena could not have looked any more radiant. That is what really moves me. Here’s just a few images from their day.
