Our elopement with Say Yes Alaska
My husband and I recently eloped in Hatcher Pass, Alaska. We were fortunate enough to have found Laura Wilson of Say Yes Alaska to officiate our wedding ceremony. Laura was amazing throughout every step of our adventure, from the first steps of the planning process, to sending us on our honeymoon and life together. Throughout the experience, Laura communicated with competent professionalism and authentic friendliness. She recommended the breathtaking spot where we were married, she explained what we needed to do to get our license and she filed it after our marriage, and she recommend experiences and accommodations before and after our wedding day. Laura coordinated with a florist, photographer, and witnesses so that my husband and I were able to focus our attention and energy on one another and our happiness. Laura took the time to get to know us before the big day, and we felt like we were married by a friend. She had many conversations with us before our wedding day so she could alleviate any stress and personalize our experience. Laura inquired about our vision for the ceremony. Then she drafted a ceremony, sent it to us for feedback, applied our requested changes, and sent us a second draft. All of the energy that Laura put into this process made our ceremony feel perfectly unique. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted: magical, fun, and laid back. Laura even surprised us with some special touches that made our day unforgettable. It is difficult to find the words that to describe how highly we recommend Laura and Say Yes Alaska. We are forever grateful for her services.Sent on 10/13/2020

Wedding on a Glacier
Kerry was amazing!!!! She was very personable and fit right in with our small group. Our wedding was on a glacier and with advanced notice, Kerry was very accommodating and helped with plan B’s in the event weather would not allow our ceremony on the glacier. We were able to get it done the next afternoon.Eveyone loves our ceremony vows. Thanks again Laura and Kerry for everything!!Sent on 05/22/2021

Laura is so wonderful that I can't imagine our day without her!
Laura was so amazing to work with on our ceremony that I now consider her a friend. We had a simple elopement that was interrupted by a pesky pandemic. We weren't sure if we were going to be able to come to Alaska, but we made it! Laura was fabulous to provide vows to work from and was 100% encouraging of us to make everything personal to us...cut and paste other vows, add personal tidbits about each other etc. Laura is great at the details if you need to know what to do prior to get your ducks in a row and she files your paperwork afterward, so you don't have to worry about a thing. I cannot recommend Laura enough!Sent on 06/23/2020
