Where To Get Married Wednesdays: Alaska Destination Wedding

Feb 5, 2014 by


From holding your ceremony at the quaint Chapel by the Lake overlooking a range of mountains and a glacier, to booking a tour ship and allowing wedding guests to have a wildlife-viewing experience during your vows, Alaska destination weddings can be simple and rustic or breathtakingly elegant!

Where else in the world can you capture your wedding excitement in full daylight…at midnight? Craving a bigger entrance than the traditional walk down the aisle to your groom? Have your Alaska destination wedding in Sitka or Juneau and surround yourself by sea otters, bald eagles, and whales as you arrive by seaplane or kayak!

The Seward Windsong Lodge, located at the head of the Resurrection River Valley, captures the splendor and serenity of south-central Alaska, or enjoy Denali and the Alaska Range as your backdrop, both of which are the beautiful architecture of the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge!

Not sure what to do with your guests pre- or post- wedding? Take a full-day fishing charter,  or hike to Kachemak Bay State Park, adventuring through secluded wilderness on a moderate (and enjoyable!) hike with a gradual elevation up to Grewingk Glacier Lake. Feeling a little more adventurous? Hop in for a wild ride of whitewater rafting or ziplining through the mountains!
