An Alaska Wedding: Kristin + Derrick

Today’s gorgeous wedding is from Alaska! This is the first wedding I’ve shared (and even seen!) from Alaska. Such a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding – the scenery is amazing here. Kristin + Derrick dreamt up a gorgeous East Coast vintage meets rustic Alaska wedding and with the Alaskan scenery, it was a beautiful day. Thanks so much to Floataway Studios for the gorgeous photos and film of their day. Congrats to Kristin + Derrick.
