I’m so glad to finally be back to posting again!  Amy and Brad were married in April (yes! April, and now it’s, well, July!).  Amy grew up in Ketchikan, and Brad in Michigan.  Brad came to KTN as a member of the coast guard, and as they got to know each other, well, the rest is history!  Barbie and I arrived in Alaska a week before the wedding, and Amy had the pleasure of playing tour guide to us while we helped her prep for the wedding.  So many beautiful places to see (post Part III will probably finally happen, oh, say, September ;)!  The weather was absolutely, uncharacteristically gorgeous (still a little chilly, snow on the mountain caps), but the morning of the wedding, Ketchikan was back to it’s usual April self with the big drops of rain, non-stop.  From the stunning custom jewelry (Heidi Hull Designs) to the candy bar (we all love candy!) to the handmade black and white ring bearer’s pillow, Amy managed to create such a bright and modern wedding from a somewhat isolated location.  Here are some of our favorite images!

LOVE that she wore snakeskin print pink shoes on her wedding day!  Barbie saw these in Seattle and snagged them for Amy, knowing that she’d be instantly in love with them- she was!

We took the tram from their hotel on the top of the mountain down on to Creek Street, the old part of town built entirely on docks (actually, all of Ketchikan is built out!!)

The cutest ring bearer to ever be rained on!

Have umbrellas, will travel.  We brought these with us from Seattle, good thing!  All is well until the rain travels down the umbrellas onto the poor guy/gal standing inbetween!

One of the traditions in the Norwegian culture is to be blindfolded, spun around, and then the bride has to cut the cake (made of sweet Almond flavored pastries).  However many rings she cuts through is how many children they’ll have- since they already have one uber cute daughter, looks like they’ve got three to go!
