For Kirsten and Jake, the most memorable part of their day was the “overwhelming amount of love and emotion” from those who came to celebrate with them. “It was so special to have people there that were part of the beginning, middle and future of our love story,” recalls Kirsten. “Some of our friends that moved out of state years ago were able to come to our wedding, which meant so much to us.” Sharing their big day with 220 guests, the couple exchanged vows at a rooftop ceremony above Anchorage. “We felt as if we were untouchable,” says Kirsten, “and we could just enjoy everyone coming together to celebrate our love!” After the knot was tied and emotional toasts were made, namely by the bride’s mother, the newlyweds kickstarted the night of celebrations with a surprise choreographed dance to “The Time of My Life” – complete with the signature lift!
