Juneau Helicopter Glacier Elopement

The most adventurous wedding that I could think of having is a helicopter glacier elopement in Juneau, Alaska. Casey and Tyler decided to get married while on their cruise to Alaska and asked me to join them for their special day. I’m familiar with Juneau so I suggested a few things to do during their short time there. They hired Alaska Weddings on Ice to officiate and organize the helicopter ride to the Mendenhall Glacier for them to get married. So I flew into Juneau and met them when they arrived at the port. I took them to a nearby trailhead and we hiked up to get views of a beautiful mountainside waterfall first. It was a typical Alaska day- cloudy, misty, and in the mid 50s, which is probably my favorite weather of all time, which explains why I love being an Alaska wedding photographer.

After we spent some time at the trail it was time for the main event- their Juneau Helicopter Glacier Elopement! We went to grab their wedding license then to the airport to hop on the helicopter taking us to the glacier. It was about a 15 minute ride over to the glacier. We got to fly through the prettiest valley overlooking Mendenhall Lake before we landed. Casey and Tyler had a short and sweet ceremony on the ice before we took photos on the ice. It felt so surreal being there with the amazing couple. I have been dreaming of booking a helicopter elopement in Juneau for years so seeing it become a reality made me so happy 🙂

We headed back on the helicopter and soaked in the final moments overlooking the mountains. We got back to the airport and went to our final spot at Mendenhall Lake to take more photos there! I dropped Casey and Tyler off at their cruise ship and we said our goodbyes. I had the best day ever with them as we got along so well 🙂
