A Private Boat Elopement in Seward, Alaska


Alaska Adventure Elopement

Seward- honestly, it’s probably my favorite places in Alaska. Not only is it the most picturesque quintessential little town on the Kenai Peninsula (sorry Homer) it is the perfect place to Elope in Alaska. Seward is a magical Alaskan paradise, a place where spruce and birch covered mountains meet a captivating blue-turquoise ocean. If you are considering this area for your Alaska elopement I can tell you: it will not disappoint.

A + Z: A Love Story

Dreaming of an elopement in Alaska- These two flew out from Texas (after many canceled flights) so they could say their vows on a remote beach with the only guests being myself and their parents. We cashed in all of our good karma for perfect April weather, calm seas, porpoises dancing at the bow of the boat AND the most golden, golden hour I’ve seen on the water in a long, long time. 

Congratulations to these high school sweethearts- I am so happy I got to be there on this perfect spring day in Alaska. 

Also, if you are thinking of eloping just know this…. you totally should!

Peep these photos then book me and your flight to Alaska and get to Seward, you won’t be disappointed.

A Review:

Chelsa was such a great fit for our elopement! She went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding day since we are located in Texas. Chelsa even picked up the cake and flowers on her way to Seward to help us out. She was a fantastic addition to our wedding day & we made some unforgettable memories in the few hours we spent together. Additionally, Chelsa was quick to send our wedding photos to us and they were more than we could have ever hoped for! Every time I see the photos I relive the special day over and over. We love you Chelsa!
