After setting up their campsite beside the Moose River, Dallas and Jason were laying in a hammock together talking about the future, when Jason decided to pop the question! “We’ve always talked about getting married, so it wasn’t unusual for him to ask me to marry him,” says Dallas. “Jason became more serious and he finally said, ‘Well I guess I better go get your ring out of the truck then.' ” The couple rang in their union with a summer wedding day in one of their favorite picturesque locales. “Jason and I both enjoy fishing, especially in Homer, so we knew we wanted to incorporate our love for those in our wedding,” says the bride. “We used old Japanese fishing floats that my late grandfather had collected as table décor and pulled our wedding colors from the waters of Kachemak Bay.” The amount of love and support from their family and friends was a highlight for the newlyweds, in addition to getting to surprise them all with a slideshow ending with their ultrasound picture! “I put together a video of all our adventures throughout the past five years, then we ended it with announcing that our littlest adventure buddy would be joining us in December,” says Dallas. “Their reactions were priceless.”
