Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Carolyn and Brandon said “I do” to an intimate backyard affair at the bride’s parents’ summer home. The Nikiski house is a spot that holds endless memories for her and many guests at the wedding, Carolyn explains. “The feeling of friendship, love and community was the most memorable part of our wedding day,” she adds. “All of the tears and laughter from all of our friends and family made the wedding day so special and heartwarming.” The newlyweds choreographed their first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” – a moment they spent seven months preparing for with their instructor! “We rocked the dance with a lift and many dips and twirls,” the bride recalls. To round out their relaxed celebration, the couple had a bonfire “with a very special pizza recipe from Brandon’s (late) father,” she says. “The bonfire gave the wedding a nice Alaskan vibe with all the great conversations of ‘remember when’ and lots of hugs, love and little kumbaya singing. It was a great way to wrap up the night.”
