LongJohn Wedding Weekend

Kat & Casey ~ July 28, 2018

The Nikiski Fair Grounds was the place to be on the 27th of July. Kat and Casey’s wedding weekend was FULL of laughter and tons of memories, and it was all accomplished with amazing friends and family.

The night before a wedding is typically set aside for a rehearsal dinner…well Kat and Casey made sure that there would be no rehearsing, only a Taco bar and an OLYMPIC sized game of Firefighters vs. Teachers. It started with the national anthem, then on to the human size hungry hippo game, and then more Firefighter and Teacher themed events. It was nothing short of EPIC. So much thought, and detail went into the entire weekend – they really know how to celebrate!

Faye & Brian



Faye and Brian were married on October 10, 2015 at the Fox Hollow Chalet in South Anchorage. As most of their friends and family would agree…”It was about time!” All jokes aside, these two couldn’t be more perfect for each other! I’ve known Faye since she was in grade school and I met Brian in high school…both are exceptional human beings and together…well it’s magic.

They did their “first look” at McHugh Creek, it was a little breezy, but the colors were still in full bloom! Afterwards, we headed back to Fox Hall for the ceremony and reception!16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 27 28 29 30 88

Dad’s first look at his girl was priceless as well.32

The inside story:  Apparantly, Brian drops a lot of spendy items in the water, so his brother thought it was appropriate to safe guard the rings!64 66 67 68 69 70 658171 72 74
