Stephanie and Ryan’s wedding day reflected not only their affinity for adventure but also the love of their "amazing" friends and family. Their parents, family and friends made their wedding arch, collected driftwood for the aisle and created their wedding day logo. They “continue to fill our lives with happiness and memories forever,” she says. Their dads performed the ceremony, their mothers performed a hand-tying ceremony “with a ski strap, a rafting strap and our late dog’s collar,” and all 110 guests at the wedding pronounced them husband and wife together! Even with loved ones in faraway places, the couple was able to live stream their vows to the bride’s relatives in Australia for a true family affair. Before their “I dos,” Stephanie and Ryan took a helicopter flight to explore the glaciers and capture some couple photos in what seemed like a world of their own. Then, Stephanie walked down the aisle with blueberry stains and holes in the bottom of her dress from the crampons – “in true Alaska style,” according to the bride.
