Words cannot express how amazing this company is. My fiance (now husband!) and I had been together 13 years. We have never been traditional people and knew we wanted something really special for our wedding day, but had zero idea what we wanted. We waited, and waited...because nothing felt special enough to celebrate us. Years of dreaming and searching and nothing spoke to us...until the day we found Alaska Destination Weddings. I contacted Erin and she quickly replied with helpful information. Within a short amount of time, we booked our elopement. We booked it about 1 year in advance and over the course of a year, Erin answered all of my questions, treated me as a friend and reassured me in all of my worries. We met in the hotel room, before my dress went on and she was SO helpful. She helped me steam the dress, put the dress on, fold a pocket square, go back and forth between two hotel rooms...all while making me feel extremely comfortable and excited. Her professionalism, warm personality and knowledge really washed away my anxiety. During the chaos of getting ready to leave the hotel room, she made sure we had water in our bag and everything we needed. We took a short hike to our location and we were so blown away by the beauty of it. None of that would have been possible without Erin. She truly made my whole vision come to life, even better than I imagined. All of her vendors and recommendations were the absolute best. I 100% recommend Alaska Destination Weddings. If you are reading this and thinking about it, take my advice....DO IT. Best decision we have made. Thank you Alaska Destination Weddings for making our dream come true!Sent on 09/11/2018

Working with Alaska Destination Weddings, has been a dream. Erin is so well organized and responsive it makes the process seem so easy! Case and point, after working with Erin for months to plan our perfect day, it POURED. We had a helicopter tour, a glacier landing, a photographer, hair and makeup, flowers, and so many other working pieces that were halted by some crazy weather. Needless to say we were concerned. However, Erin called and had already done EVERYTHING. She had given us a few options to chose from and within less than 30 minutes all of it was rescheduled and completely replanned for the follow day. I didn't have to lift a finger to plan or schedule anything! The following day my wife and I were married, in the most flawless ceremony, on a glacier, with all of the small, gorgeous details that we could have ever dreamed of! I cannot recommend Erin and her services enough. We will always cherish the memories we made that day and thank you Erin for all of your help!Sent on 08/21/2018

Ugh, I just don't even know where to begin to express how grateful my now husband and I are that Erin was able to help us plan THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES! We initially intended to plan a "traditional" wedding where we live in Florida, but we were not enjoying all of the stress that comes along with it. We randomly one night had the idea to go get married in Alaska and I stumbled upon Erin's website. Neither of us had been to Alaska before, but I explained all the little details and adventures that we wanted to do to Erin and she put together the perfect adventure-packed day for our wedding day and guided us every step of the way, STRESS FREE! From the first inquiry e-mail, the random questions I had throughout the months leading up to the wedding, to taking care of the cake and flowers, to planning the day of, with hiking for beautiful photos at Bird Point, a helicopter flight for photos on top of a glacier, a tram ride up to the top of a mountain for a beautiful ceremony overlooking the scenery with our closest family in tow, and finally a great dinner reception at Seven Glaciers, Erin was AMAZING. It truly was a day we will remember forever. I now think everyone should travel to Alaska to get married with the help of Alaska Destination Weddings :) THANKS, ERIN!!!Sent on 07/21/2018
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Cassie! We are so glad we were able to be a part of your day.

Wish I could relive my wedding day over and over again, because Erin helped to make sure that everything was absolutely perfect! She answered all of my silly questions, and always responded right away. If you want to get married in Alaska you HAVE to give her a call!Sent on 08/17/2017
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you so much Ashton! It was our pleasure being a part of such a fun adventure for you and your friends and family. We are so thankful you chose us to assist you with everything. What a beautiful day it was!
Andrew · Married on 06/16/2017
Erin helped arrange everything for us so that when we showed up in Alaska all we had to do was be ready on the day! She was flexible and responsive when finding a date that worked with our schedule, and then helped co-ordinate everything on the ground for us as we were coming from New Zealand. On the day everything went perfectly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Erin made our wedding day a perfect experience for us and we couldn't have asked for someone better!Sent on 08/18/2017
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you so much Andrew and Christine! We thoroughly enjoyed the process with you and it was so nice to be a part of such a beautiful experience. We wish you all of the best in the years to come!

Couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner than Erin! She went above and beyond what we expected, helping us with all of our questions along the way.

Kari · Married on 06/06/2017
We traveled from Minnesota to Alaska in early June for our elopement. From our initial email to Erin to the last hug she gave us we knew that finding Alaska Destination Weddings and eloping was the smartest decision we had made! Erin worked with this Type A gal on every detail of our day and it was nothing short of a dream. My husband Corey and I smiled and laughed all day; we both commented on that when we saw our photos. Erin thought of every detail and made it stress free and relaxing so we could focus on being present in the moment. Thank you so much for everything Erin and for sharing our day with us.Sent on 07/16/2017
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Kari and Corey, what a wonderful experience it was planning with the two of you! it was so rewarding to see the day unfold and your love for each other was contagious. We felt honored to get the chance to share our beautiful state with you and hop on an airplane for one grand adventure. We wish you all of the best and many more adventures in the years to come!

Desiree · Married on 09/06/2016
We started from complete scratch wanting to have our elopement 3000 miles away from home and Erin was an absolute blessing! She was so helpful from our very first contact and personalized the elopement package that best fit for what we wanted. My only job was to describe exactly how I envisioned our wedding day to be and Erin managed all the leg work and everything was perfect, so so beautiful!Sent on 09/12/2016
It was just myself and (now) husband, so having her there to help even with the smallest details made a worlds difference. I honestly have no words to describe how thankful we are for meeting Erin. She made it as easy as just making sure we showed up and she took care of the rest. Highly highly recommend for anyone who hopes for that beautiful, stressless Alaska wedding!
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you so much Desiree! We were honored to get to be a part of your wedding day. We are so glad we met you and we wish you many happy years together!

If you’re are looking for the most romantic elopement and absolute adventure choose Alaska –> Alaska Destination Wedding –> Flight Seeing Adventure Package! Erin and her team were wonderful to work with. They were extremely detailed and constantly made sure everything was on schedule. Erin was easy to keep in touch with throughout our entire planning process, and she followed up with all of our vendors and made things so easy for us. What stood out to me was her great personality and her attention to detail. I would totally entrust Erin to execute your wedding day or special event! I am still scanning through pictures from the elopement and saying "WOW!!Sent on 11/29/2016

Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you so much Jen and Max! We enjoyed getting to know you and your day was so fun to be a part of. We can't wait to see you again when you come back to Alaska!
Sara · Married on 08/18/2016
Erin was always there for us, no matter what! She helped me through everything, all the planning, even hair recommendations, and makeup because we live far away from Alaska! She hooked us up with our photographer as well, and even had an officiant for us. We literally didn't have to lift a finger. I could not have had a more flawless, less stressful day, without her!! Our luggage didn't even make it to the hotel in time for our wedding, and it contained wedding attire for my husband! Thankfully, Erin stopped in Anchorage on the way, to pick up some essentials! She is truly amazing, and wonderful! I would recommend her to my closest family members and friends, and trust me, do not hesitate with this.. she's the best! The bouquet was beautiful, more so than I had hoped, and the cake, and champagne were delicious. She really does do everything you could need, or as for, for your special day!Sent on 11/17/2016
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you Sarah! Both you and Matt were so fun to work with. Despite the luggage not arriving I'm so glad we were still able to have a wonderful day in Alaska for your wedding! Congratulations to both of you!
Juliana · Married on 08/16/2016
My husband and I just eloped in Anchorage. We had never been to Alaska before so we knew we would need someone to help us plan it. We could not have asked for a better planner than Erin! From the first phone call to the last hug goodbye, Erin was attentive and sweet. She guided us through the whole process until the "I Do's" and made our elopement better than we ever imagine it could be. Every single detail put into it showed how much she cared and that she listened to everything we said. We highly recommend Erin for her creativity, attention to detail and excellent service.Sent on 09/13/2016
Alaska Destination Weddings's reply:Thank you Juliana! We had so much fun on your beautiful (and windy) wedding day! We were honored to get to be a part of such a beautiful moment in your lives. You two are so kind and we wish you a life filled with happiness and many more adventures together!
