The variety that Alaska offers in terms of location is almost shocking. Everything from mountains, to oceans, beaches to fields, metropolitan (small as that one may be) to wilderness.

My umbrellas packed, my boots secured, coat fastened, I trudged out through pouring rain for Grace and Mike’s Wedding day. It had been raining for weeks.

There are so many beautiful moments at a wedding. The groom seeing his bride for the very first time, a newlywed couples first kiss, their first dance, the moment a couple realizes they are no longer bride and groom but husband and wife.

privacy of the bridal suite at the beautiful snow peak farm, William is just moments from seeing the love of his life, finally, as his bride. He turns to face away, the door creeks, and the tapping of Jessica’s heels as she enters the room. His heart rate increases, his hands start to shake, the anticipation is almost unbearable.

Genesis chapter 2 verse 20 describes a spouse as a complement and I just can’t think of a better way to describe Nik and Megan. They complement each other, like two pieces of a puzzle AND THEY LOVE PUZZLES.
