WEDDING...A SIMPLE HELICOPTER WEDDING ON A GLACIER

ShoreTrips says...

Getting married on a glacier reflects some of the symbolism of marriage itself -- two people joining their lives together, yet maintaining their individuality -- standing together in a spectaclar setting and committing to go forward hand in hand.

This trip uses a six-passenger helicopter. The commissioner takes one seat, which leaves room for the bride and groom, and potentially three guests.

Juneau's most famous attraction, its ice fields, make a stunning backdrop for a marriage ceremony.

Your helicopter flight will take you over vast fields of ice, where you may see mountain goats, bears, and deer, to a landing spot at an elevation between 1,800 and 3,000 feet. The carpet beneath your feet will be a sheet of ice about 1,500 feet thick and you will be surrounded by peaks that look tame from above, but are actually massive ice flows when you are standing among them.

The isolation and seclusion you will feel here will heighten the importance of this special moment in your lives.

Whether you decide to wear white, lightweight clothing, or something more rugged to fit the background scene, your faces will reflect the goosebumps you feel while standing on one of nature's miracles.

You may consult with the wedding coordinator after purchasing this package to add options such as a photographer, live music, a wedding cake, and an upgrade in floral selections. ShoreTrips will connect you directly with the coordinator to make those requests.
