Tucked away in a Girdwood forest, Whitney and Erich shared their intimate wedding day with 75 loved ones. Wanting their day to reflect their “love of the outdoors and never-ending commitment to adventure," the couple had their "first look" at the top of Alyeska, and took after-ceremony portraits among the trees and the flowing creek. "Being able to look into my new wife's eyes as the world melted away, with the forest background was magical, to say the least,” Erich recalls. The couple thoughtfully infused their wedding weekend with endless personal touches, like a rehearsal dinner at their favorite hangout, Girdwood Brewing Company, and selecting The Juicy Harps as their wedding band, who are friends of the couple and “have seen our relationship grow from the beginning,” says Whitney. Highlights from their formal forest affair don’t stop there. “The day was relaxed, genuine and just so much fun bringing together our favorite people from each of our worlds. Being present in the moment, we were surrounded by flickering candlelight, the soothing sounds of a glacial creek and lush moss-covered trees.”
