Anne Larche and Karl Boesenberg were married in a beautiful and intimate soiree in their lovely home, here in Anchorage, Alaska. This couple seem well suited for each other and are wonderful hosts. I enjoyed the evening with them very much. Enjoy this little wedding teaser.

I managed to get them outside for a bit of chilly fun. We didn’t last long, but they were great sports! Alaska is just a winter wonderland right now. It was snowing on their wedding day which made it more festive, especially for their out-of-town guests! Isn’t she gorgeous?

A beautiful family unit!

I love this image and found quite a few processes to enhance it. This one is a bit of vintage and I like how it came out.

Their very creative florals were provided by Uptown Blossoms.

The cake by the very talented baker, Freida Koper of The Flying Dutchman Pastry.

The catering was a fantastic team and new for me:  Two Fat Guys Catering.

Anne’s make up artist was Mia of  Alaska Make Up Team.

Anne’s hair provided by Kathy Johnston.

Amber Boles & Matthew Pederson Have Married!

Oh my gosh . . . Amber and Matt have just married in the historic town of Sumpter, Oregon. Sometimes there is a couple that I just cannot wait to photograph with and I have been waiting all year for this wedding! I met Amber when I covered another destination wedding in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. She is incredibly artistic, vivacious, bodaciously beautiful and Matt is an artist, an accomplished musician, one heck of a great guy and a lot of fun to be around. He is handsome too, but he says I say that to all the boys. . . These two are so perfect together, kind, loving & new found friends. I love to cover destination weddings because it’s basically 3 days of coverage. So in that 2-3 days, I really get to know the couple, their family & friends. It’s always a blast and I am deeply honored that Matt & Amber asked me to photograph their special day. I have a wonderful short story of their wedding day posted for you and would love to hear your comments. I am sure that the couple would also appreciate any well wishes you wish to leave here. They are currently enjoying a roadtrip honeymoon. Your email will not be posted.

Eastern Oregon is undeniably gorgeous country. I love cowboy country! The image below shows straight from camera to show you how gorgeous the area really is and I spiced it up slightly just below that. Wow.

I cannot do too much to this incredible beauty but just a pinch of spice.

Amber’s father, Steve Boles, hung a hook in his tree for me so that I could showcase Amber’s wedding dress. Amber’s parents hosted the ceremony with about 120 people on their own property in Sumpter. Then the party was held in Sumpter’s fairgrounds. So many of the couple’s family and friends worked really hard to have such absolute perfection! The bride’s dress design is Martina Liana.

The Bride made her own bouquet and this art piece was a compilation of many vintage jewelry pieces. The small watch clock – set to the time of their ceremony. I tell you, Amber & Matt thought of every minute detail to make this event magnificent. It appeared as though the wedding couple and their party stepped out of of a time warp from an era long ago.

Even their invitations were all hand made.

Simply gorgeous. The Brides’s hair artist, Amber Lott is very talented as well. The bride kept her hairdresser & friend, on hand to change into several hair styles. Amber Lott can be found under Looks Unlimited Salon & Spa of Boise, Idaho. She provided the hair for the entire wedding party and parents.

The ladies each wore a truly vintage dress that was accompanied by purses and jewelry that Amber has collected.

Below, is the bride, her mother, Jan Boles on the left of her, and Jan’s sisters, Jean and Jane to her right. All of the ladies below are so creative and hand made everything, from the hair embellishments, shoe clips, boutonnieres, florals. You see it, they made it. Amber and her parents collected many antiques for the space. You can certainly see all the same eyes in this family shot.

Below is both mom’s of the couple, Jan and Karen – preparing to put on their son’s boutonnieres.

Matt Pederson, his best man, Craig Pederson, Wade Landa and Matt Boles in shades.

The bride arrived by an old chevy truck, painted a perfect shade of blue, that her parents own. I snuck up to get a shot of the bride as dad walked around the back to come get her for their aisle walk. I caught Amber turning away, sipping a bit of Pendletons. Let me tell you, everyone in the small church burst into laughter. I don’t know if Amber knew they could see her . . . nah . . .  knowing Amber, it was planned to perfection. Hysterical.

Amber’s father, Steve Boles is also very creative. He painstakingly placed and hung every piece of vintage furniture & items for his daughters’ ceremony site after he cleared the property’s shop that had been filled floor to ceiling with antiques! He told me it took every day for a month to get it right. Now that is love. He also built the platform the couple and Nick are standing on for the ceremony. How special is that?

The ceremony was officiated by their good friend, Nick.

One of the unique elements of the ceremony, was their “unity tree” where upon Matt had some dirt imported from his ancestral land and Amber also had dirt from her own familial land. They each scooped dirt from those 2 buckets into their chosen pine tree. That tree will be planted on their own property to grow.

And with a big clanging of the bell, the couple walks from the ceremony as Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Pederson!

Well . . . I don’t think this is what mom, Tatum had in mind when she asked me to be sure and capture a photograph of her little girl, Maggi. That is plain ol’ Oregon dirt. Not chocolate.

How can you not love this face!

And off they go. Congratulations to Amber and Matthew Pederson! What a blast.
