Scroll down to see the images of this extremely extraordinary nuptial along with a short story from Alasdair Turner, the photographer.
This wedding has the perfect location and quickly became one of my favorite wedding experience ever. The ceremony however was such a small piece of this amazing adventurous wedding that it barely compares to the rest of the trip. We started in Talkeetna, Alaska, where Katy had the bridal hair and makeup session. From there we shot some photos in and around Talkeetna, had a quick drink at the fairview and then headed to the airport. We flew to the Pika Glacier in Denali National Park, where the short ceremony took place. After the paperwork was signed and Chad could finally do what he had been waiting for all day. He quickly grabbed the shovel and started digging and soon the camp was built. The champagne was opened and the salmon dinner cooked. For the after party we watched the sun set over the majestic Mountain Foraker. I flew out the next day, but for rest of the wedding party the trip was not over yet.They continued climbing the peaks of Little Switzerland for the next four days and then cross the rivers back to Talkeetna.
