What Alaska adventure elopement experience is complete without a visit to a glacier, a reindeer farm, and a helicopter ride. Andy and Ashland did all these while they were in Alaska.
They’re both quirky and super fun. Throughout the elopement experience process I got to learn that Andy likes to make all of the yummy snacks in their house disappear – without Ashland’s knowledge. And Ashland likes to not order dessert and then eat half of Andy’s (but he’s a great sport about it). Their Alaska adventure elopement wasn’t necessarily about doing things that they do all the time, but doing something NEW that they’ve always wanted to. Hey, isn’t that what Elope Your Life is all about? They’re from the midwest, and wanted to experience something completely unique and different for their elopement. And Alaska didn’t disappoint. With the help of True North Events and some other incredible people, like the reindeer farm they visited, their adventure elopement was a complete “best day ever”.
Here’s what Andy and Ashland had to say about their adventure elopement in Alaska:
“Our elopement in Alaska with Sam was so epic. Our friends kept saying that our elopement announcement photo should be used for Alaska’s tourism! The whole elopement experience was completely worth it. The mine, glacier, and reindeer farm were all perfect additions to the day where we climbed a mountain and said “I do”. It felt good to do what we wanted. It wasn’t like we were trying to exclude anyone, but an Alaska elopement was just what we felt more comfortable doing.
Sam’s communication was on point (I love a quick response and she was on it) and she gave us so many location/activity recommendations that were so helpful, whether she’d been there already or not. And the whole Elope Your Life aspect? It was present in our day, with trying new things and getting outside our comfort zone. It was also a great reminder to continue that bravery and exploration in our lives. With Sam there to capture it, we forded a glacial stream, hiked a mountain, were surrounded by reindeer, kissed a moose, and explored an old mine in the mountains of Alaska.
To anyone wanting to elope – do it. We now have so many friends and family who wish they did what we did.“
