On a chilly, rain-soaked day in Anchorage, Ben brought Andrea to Point Woronzof to watch airplanes land, pop the question – and then some bubbly! His proposal was oh-so sweet, according to Andrea, even despite the weather. Their beautiful Girdwood wedding day made up for it, where they were able to say “I do” with 160 of their nearest and dearest by their sides, who traveled to Alaska just to celebrate the couple. Their big day featured softly colored hues set against the rustic charm and scenic splendor of Crow Creek Mine. Later, guests would toast to the newlyweds and dance the night away beneath a tented reception space, filled with garden-fresh blooms and sweet treats for all. “The whole day was special and memorable,” Andrea recalls. There is no single moment that could stand out from the rest!
