A Jubilant Covid Elopement At Tonsina Point

Feb 17

Some people just have a touch of magic in their spirit. You know it’s love from the first text. First email. First Facetime. Their energy permeates even a pixelated interaction and you just. know. Those people are Steph and Geoff. I don’t think I could really even do justice with words to how amazingly special this day was. Steph and Geoff originally had a big east coast wedding planned. As the situation with the pandemic began to unfold last spring, they rearranged their plans in favor of a covid elopement at Tonsina Point in Seward, Alaska.

This day was a cup running over of joy, laughter, and love. Steph & Geoff not only treated myself and The Adams Co (on photos) with kindness, but also with a deep love and sense of inclusion as if we were family. I was deeply touched to share in this experience and I’m so proud of this film. I hope you enjoy watching it.

Three cheers (as always) to Miller’s Landing for shuttling us out to Tonsina via their water taxi. They even delayed their return departure to make sure Austin Adams and I didn’t have to hike back after Grace departed with the couple and Seward Helicopter Tours. God bless you Miller’s Landing! Always above and beyond the call.

As many of you know, I have the pleasure of working alongside my friends at The Adams Co. from time to time (we’re always passing referrals back and forth). We had such a good time in Seward together. I always feel so lucky when I get to work with friends!

I would LOVE to get back to Seward a few times this summer for more weddings and elopements. If you’re interested in planning your Seward nuptials, feel free to reach out if you need recs for lodging, water taxis, or just really yummy places to eat. Seward is my favorite.

So happy I finally got to share this wedding story with y’all. Thanks for coming by to see it. ♥️
