How to Have an Alaska Helicopter Elopement
Elope in Alaska
Why Elope in Alaska
Alaska is an epic state full of endless adventure. Whether you’ve never been, are itching to go back, or you live here and know how amazing this state is, you are gonna have a sweet experience. Alaska is the perfect destination if you want to travel on a glacier, see big mountains, have wildlife encounters, or want to experience a place that is truly wild.
With 6 times more pilots per capita than any other state, and a whole lot of planes, Alaska is also the best spot to have a helicopter elopement.
Why Include a Heli Flight in Your Wedding Day
Riding in a helicopter is a truly inspiring experience. You get to intimately view a landscape in a new way. You can access areas that would otherwise take weeks to hike to. You can have a completely private ceremony in what seems like the middle of nowhere with more peace and more time to focus on you.
You can also go on epic adventures apart from taking in the landscape. Have you ever traveled on a glacier? How about paddling in a glacier blue pool? You can go from glacier to lake to mountains in minutes and take in a bunch of the incredible things Alaska has to offer in a single day. Helicoptering in Alaska is a once in a lifetime experience, so it’s fitting to start your journey as a married couple with something so new and memorable. If you want your elopement to be truly unforgettable we should start planning it together.
What Adventures You Can Have
Taking a helicopter opens up a ton of options for adventure. You can have a picnic alongside an iceberg lake and then paddle board in glacier blue pools. You can try ice climbing and then run around in the mountains. You can explore multiple glaciers in a single day. Maybe you’ll see moose from above! The possibilities are endless if you are open to anything! Your pilot, guide, and I will help create a day that feels like you. Remember that weather is always a factor, so we may need to shake things up before our flight. I always recommend having a 2 day window for your helicopter elopement to ensure you get to have the experience that you want!
Inclusive Helicopter Elopement Packages
I offer three different helicopter elopement packages to choose from so you have less stress and can have an incredible experience in Alaska. This means I take care of booking your heli flight, coordinate with your guide, and help you plan all the other good stuff so you are prepared and stoked for your elopement. You get more than just photography – you get a whole dang experience! A helicopter elopement with me can look like exploring a glacier with a guide, paddle boarding in an iceberg lake, ice climbing on a glacier, picking blueberries on a mountain ridge, and seeing the unreal landscape from above. Plus! My adventure partner for life, Stephen, can be your glacier guide – we can go on a fun double date together!
I work with NOVA Alaska Guides and Outbound Heli out of Palmer to bring you the locals price for an epic Alaskan Adventure! Palmer is located just an hour outside of Anchorage, and you can even stay on the heli property. My most popular package includes six hours of photography and a five hour heli flight that starts at $9,800.
