Remote, rustic elegance

Homer sits on the edge of Kachemak Bay, with majestic views of mountains, glaciers, ocean and volcanoes. Every wedding venue has its unique charms, and they all are breathtaking. We are so lucky to live and work here! Last summer we had so much fun taking that unique beauty a step further, across the water to the south side of the Bay.

Last summer we had so much fun taking that unique beauty a step further, across the water to the south side of the Bay. Katelyn and Van were married at a family home in Tutka Bay – surrounded by an incredibly beautiful rocky shoreline, trees dripping in green, and rising mountains. The day was sunny and hot, tucked back against the shore. Coming across the Bay was a different matter, with waves crashing and soaking some of those on the back deck of the boat! Thankfully our florals were tucked safely in the cabin, and a dryer was available on the other side for some wet clothes!

Soft, classic and elegant – this wedding featured a beautiful color palate of whites, greens, silvers with soft blush accents. We got to deck out a few outhouses with arrangements, and hang garland on a seaside deck. The bride’s family built an amazing structure over the deck, complete with chandelier! Hanging wreaths and a fabric-backed arbor with off-centered florals set the scene beautifully.

Shawna and I had a fantastic time, working around the decks and winding wooden pathways to add floral accents around this incredible property. Katelyn was a wonderful, sweet bride from start to finish, and all of the friends, family and fellow vendors were fun company on this beautiful day. The wild blueberries were pretty amazing as well!

As the light returns here in Southcental Alaska, it's fun to be planning our crops and 2017 weddings, and dreaming of these sunny blue sky days! We still have some availability in our schedule - get started with a wedding inquiry form and I'll be in touch within a few days. 

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
