As an Alaskan wedding videographer, I've had the privilege of capturing countless love stories against the breathtaking backdrop of our state's natural beauty. While rustic venues exude charm and character, there's no reason why your Alaskan wedding can't embrace some modern elegance, even amidst the wilderness. In this post, let's explore some innovative ways to infuse a touch of a modern flair into your Alaskan wedding.

1. Embrace Outdoor Comfort:

Alaskan summers bring endless daylight and warmer temperatures, making outdoor ceremonies and receptions a popular choice. However, the sun's intensity can be a bit much on the warmer days. To create a more comfortable atmosphere, consider incorporating sunshade parasols and elegant fans. Not only do they provide relief from the heat, but they also add a chic element to your outdoor decor and in photos and video. Imagine your photos and video having pops of elegance from these sunshades and fans, and even including billowing fabric draping if it's not windy. With a backdrop of Alaska's towering mountains, it's the epitome of modern romance.

2. Introduce Timeless Elegance:

While many of our Alaskan venues exude a charming, down-to-earth vibe, there's no reason why they can't also exude an old-money feel. Incorporating elements of timeless elegance, such as utilizing local rental companies to find unique vintage furniture pieces, can enhance your space entirely. —it's a fusion of rustic charm and sophisticated glamour that will leave your guests in awe.

3. Personalize Your Space:

One of the most effective ways to modernize a rustic venue is by infusing it with personal touches that reflect your unique style and personality. Whether it's custom signage, monogrammed linens, or signature cocktails inspired by Alaskan flavors, incorporating personal details into your wedding decor adds a modern, intimate feel to your celebration. One of my favorite ways to upgrade your reception space is to have a custom dancefloor. There are vinyl wrapping that can be truly personalized to make your reception space one of a kind. Not only will your guests be in awe, your photos and video will have an enhanced modern twist as well.
