Mr. & Mrs. Plate

We were honored to capture Josh and Melissa’s wedding on May 6th at Radiant Church. What great families, friends, and church support they have. You can’t ask for better when starting a sweet life together!

The story behind the beautiful pearl necklace Josh gifted his wife with, actually brought me to tears. The significance is worth a short story of redemption and unconditional love.

When we parked at Beluga Point, we almost decided to go elsewhere do to the wind! It was crazy! But we went for it, and it was so worth it!

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

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

Brian’s dad couldn’t help himself, he had to cut in…75 177 78 79
