After finding each other through Instagram, meeting for the first time in Hawaii and later getting engaged by the beach, Rosemary and Tony brought their love story to Alaska, where they tied the knot with a handmade, family-oriented celebration. “My goal as a bride was to have everyone know the warm, welcoming spirit of Alaska and to bring out the unique beauty in every aspect,” says Rosemary. You could say they caught a real glimpse at that “Alaska” feeling when they spotted a bull moose at their rehearsal dinner! Wanting their wedding to truly reflect their relationship, the couple created a day that blended romance with rustic touches, almost all of which were lovingly handcrafted. “I loved having my family and friends be a part of putting things together in the week leading up to the wedding. It made it feel like a week-long celebration versus a day,” says the bride. The best part of their big day? "(We) wanted everyone to feel like family and have fun, and that's what happened."
