Tegge Flash Mob Wedding

Oh, where do I start with these two! Remember their engagement session at the Alaska State Fair?  See it HERE. They had a mind blowing wedding at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchoarge, Alaska. Crystal is an artist, and every detail of this wedding was stunning.  From the gold backdrop of origami cranes to the sparkling table numbers.  Great Land Entertainment threw a spectacular party! The couple organized a flash mob for the ceremony and entertained their guests.  I think my favorite part was Jarod singing a Taylor Swift song in the mists of his vows! Jarod shared his lyrical skills during the reception as well, when he rapped every word of "Ice Ice Baby".

The Epic Barn

Brenda & Don are a delight to work with, and you can tell they love making your day special!

When I asked Brenda why she does this, she said " I really enjoy being a part of such a big day in peoples lives. It's fun and we meet incredible people that become friends. I love that we offer such a beautiful place complete with tables, chairs and antiques included. I truly love people and this venue feeds my gardening and antique obsession!
