In June of 2023, Teddy and I got married in Alaska and had a two week road trip exploring what we were able to in the state for our honeymoon. Alaska is so large that we barely scratched the surface, but we wanted to share what we did so that as you plan your own trip, you can choose what to include in your own itinerary!
On the last day of our Alaska wedding and honeymoon, we drove from Homer to Anchorage. Our flight was very early the next morning so we found a few stops along the way to make the most of the 4+ hour drive. Our first stop however was one we didn’t plan ahead of time and included some flashing lights.
When most people thing of destination weddings, they think of a beach somewhere. For us, we wanted somewhere with mountains.
The states we leaned most toward were Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. We’ve never been to Colorado together before but the Maroon Bells for a wedding looked beautiful. We briefly considered Glacier National Park and the Tetons, but decided we’d rather go somewhere we hadn’t been and that would be the experience of a lifetime.
Some people love surprises. I don’t happen to be one of those people.
Over the next few weeks and months, I plan to share more about our choice to get married in Alaska as well as what we did there, what we loved, what we would pass on in the future, and our tips for you if you decide to visit.
So to start, let me answer a few of the main questions we got about our wedding during our engagement…
