Alaska Helicopter Elopement

Imagine checking an item off your bucket list on your elopement day with a helicopter ride to a glacier in Alaska. Not only that, but you get flown to your own secluded shore on a glacial lagoon, with a private yurt. And you get to stay the night. But wait… there’s more.

Imagine that you also get to kayak through glaciers, hike around to a secret cave, swim in the glacial water (with a dry suit!). To top it off, you have a meal and wedding cake prepared for you while you watch the sunset and take in the best view you’ve ever seen in your life.

That’s how Jordan & Clayton spent their wedding day.

The whole experience felt like a movie. It felt adventurous, serene, peaceful, and awe-inspiring. It sure as heck is going to be hard to top an experience like this. And why would you want to? It is your elopement day after all.

Words can’t even do this Alaska adventure elopement justice, so I’m going to share their story through photos. That is what I do best.

Day 2 of the Adventure Elopement

The next day we woke up to a moody glacial lagoon, and let me tell you. It was a VIBE. Jordan & Clay excitedly put back on their wedding attire so we could capture the glacial lagoon while we waited for our helicopter ride out. It was so serene, and we felt so lucky to see this breathtaking scenery in two drastically different ways.
