INCREDIBLE ALASKA HELICOPTER ELOPEMENT
This Alaska helicopter elopement was anything but ordinary. It allowed our couple to get secluded locations with top-notch views. This experience took all our breath away. We landed at a gorgeous blue lagoon with huge ice chunks. Then we moved upward and onward to a mountain-top spot with a glacier view. Alaska’s beauty shone bright this summer day. After hiking around the mountain, we took in all the views and cherished the here-and-now. A helicopter elopement can be done so many ways. From ridgelines to ice walls, the opportunities for landings are endless. This Alaska helicopter elopement inspiration is featured by Wandering Weddings here.
I plan to travel to Alaska every year. That’s how much I love this state! If you’re wanting something similar to this, let’s plan it together. I have helicopter packages ready. Contact me here. .
HELICOPTER ELOPEMENT TIPS
I love visiting in June-September, when the weather is the warmest. There are so many ways to add fun experiences into your elopement day. Ideas: kayaking, taking a boat charter, helicopter landing, seaplane landing, hiking, rock climbing, hammocking, picnicking, and the list goes on.
Need some tips on planning your elopement in Alaska (or somewhere else awesome)? Here are a couple quotes from myself to potential couples straight from the Wandering Weddings feature: “Alaska is huge and very diverse! Find a photographer who has been there (or is based there). They will provide you with help on choosing a region and will most likely coordinate your helicopter services as part of the package you book from them. Ask your photographer to provide you resources on marriage law in Alaska and officiant recommendations. Or do the legal stuff before you leave your home state/country.”
“A helicopter adventure is ideal for an elopement in Alaska because it allows couples to reach locations that would take all day to get to on foot. Not to mention some of these gorgeous areas are not otherwise accessible. It’s special to have a spot all to yourselves; seclusion, intimacy, and jaw-dropping views are perks that a helicopter elopement offers. Dreaming of glaciers AND mountain views? Book a package with your photographer that includes two helicopter landings. You’ll see more together, and get a bigger variety of images in your gallery. A win-win!”
