It really was a beautiful day for us!!!  I’ll send you a couple of photos once we get them but it’s probably 10-12 weeks out. Everyone loved the ride and ceremony. Thanks for everything.

Dear Alaska Weddings,

We really did and still do appreciate everything that you did for us. Our wedding day could not have been anymore special. You made us feel 100% taken care of. When Eric tells people about you he says, “He even met us at the pier, brought us to our vehicle, and made sure we got where we needed to go!” So, needless to say, Eric was just as pleased with you as I was. You are a wonderful person as well as a terrific businessman. You have found the balance between professionalism and being a “real person.” I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us and we talk about you often. If anyone else from Litchfield wants to get married in Alaska we will make sure they know about you!

I hope things are going well for you and that business is as good as ever! We have very little snow so far this year and it makes me miss Alaska terribly.

Thank you for your guidance, your kindness, and your wisdom.

You are greatly appreciated,

Christina & Eric Kadelbach

Christina & Eric Kadelbach, Helicopter Glacier Wedding on the Mendenhall Glacier

We cannot thank Alaska Weddings and Tom enough for making our Glacial Wedding on Mendenhall Glacier as easy as possible and still something to be remembered for a lifetime.  He was even able to get us an extra helicopter because we had more guests than originally anticipated!  We were afraid of the helicopter ride being cancelled because the weather had been overcast and raining for the past week but the pilots were determined to get us on a glacier, even if it wasn’t the originally planned one.  They did an amazing job flying with a low ceiling and they were also willing to serve as our photographers, getting some great shots of the entire group.  Our limo driver also treated us to a “locals only” vantage point of Mendenhall Glacier that was unoccupied so we could take some more pictures from a different perspective.  You can tell everyone involved loves their job and is willing to go the extra mile to make the experience unforgettable.  We are so glad we chose Alaska Weddings!”

Dear Tom, 

We can’t Thank you enough for making our wedding day very special and unforgettable. Your focus was on us and our requests. Nothing was overlooked. We wanted something simple, but you provided something much more than that. Our location on top of Mt. Roberts was exactly  what we were looking for. It was like you reserved the entire mountain top just for us. Our request of a Christian Wedding Package was more than we hoped for. The Vow’s were beautiful and spoke with a sincere heart. A extra thanks to all who helped made this day Special. (great pics/video)

We would Highly Recommend Tom for his services. 

Very professional yet Extremely Personal.

Timothy and Teresa , Mountain Top Wedding with ceremony on Mount Roberts

Alaska Weddings: Thanks again for everything you and your team did for us before, during and after our wedding. It was a very special day for us.

We had been planning for our wedding and pondering all those critical decisions that need to be made. Ultimately, we chose Alaska Weddings. For us, the simple wedding ceremony at Mendenhall Glacier proved to be an awe-inspiring experience from the moment we placed the call to the time we left the destination. Tom, using our list of wants and needs, did the pre-planning. All questions, paperwork and details were completed without the stress and worry. We were able to simply enjoy and relax on our day at the majestic beauty of Mendenhall Valley with a great staff. Thank you for the memories.

Mark and I want to thank you for our beautiful, fairy tale wedding.  We are still in amazement over the spectacular views and beauty of the glacier. Plus the fact we were able to have our wedding on the glacier.  You were a real pleasure to work with while setting this up and we were so impressed at hou professional your operation is.  We really enjoyed meeting Tom.  He Made us feel like  we had know him for years. You really did a terrific job and we cannot thank you enough.  Sincerely, Linda & Mark.  Please thank Art for us!

Dear Alaska Weddings,

I am writing to thank you for all your help in organising our recent wedding in Junea aboard the Silversea Silver Spirit. Mark and I are now back in Australia, but we had the most fabulous trip and wonderful wedding. We are very grateful to you for helping make this happen. It was a beautiful, yet simple, ceremony – just as we wanted it.

I’d be grateful if you could also forward our thanks onto Art for the beautiful photos he took that day for us, and for delivering them safely in time for our departure that day. I hope you were rewarded with your salmon for patiently waiting for the photo session to end.

Thanks again, Tom.
Best wishes

Tom is unbelievably awesome! He was so helpful along the way with planning the wedding and all the little details involved in our big day. He was there to greet us at the airport before boarding the helicopter and gave an awesome tour on our way up to Mendenhall Glacier! This may not sound like much, but he does so much to make sure your wedding goes exactly how you dreamed it would be! I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding! I highly recommend him and his business Alaska Weddings on Ice!

Alaska Weddings created an amazing experience that we will take with us for the rest of our lives. Tom was phenomenal, his patience was outstanding! No matter how many times I reached out with questions he was there to answer them for me.  

Our entire day from start to finish was perfect and an ease. It feels odd to say I was relaxed and at peace on my wedding day but it really just felt like I was having a fun day with my best friend. The primary reason this was accomplished was because of Tom having everything taken care of and the relaxing vibe he gives off. I would highly recommend this experience and company to anyone looking for an adventurous and original wedding!

Megan & Gregory, Helicopter Glacier Wedding on the Mendenhall Glacier

Dear Tom,  

Words cannot express our sincere gratitude to you and your team, for putting together the most unforgettable experience of our lives. Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful, but planning it from 16 000 kilometres away is enough to induce a nervous breakdown. Tom from the moment we first made contact with you, our minds were put at ease. You guys handled everything, indulging every request and last minute change. We are forever in you debt and promise to look you up when we next visit Alaska. 

Kind regards from sunny South Africa, and “Sala kale”

What an epic experience!! Tom made our wedding both memorable and stress free. It’s hard to put into words how incredible the glacier was and how positively overwhelming the entire day was for us. It is now 2 weeks later and we are still floating and coming down off cloud 9. The flowers were beautiful, the cake, champagne, helicopter ride; everything was special and perfect for us. You will not soon forget this amazing experience – I cannot say enough good things.

Sarah & John, Helicopter Glacier Wedding on the Herbert Glacier

Dear Tom,
Justin and I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful wedding in Juneau Alaska. The day was absolutely perfect and something we will never forget. With us living so far away in Indiana, you gave us peace of mind and took away the stress of our wedding planning.  You answered all of our questions, made everything more than perfect, and even remained patient with us when we were running late to our own wedding!! I wanted to send you a few pictures from the day so that you can share and let everyone else know how perfect our day was and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. We will always recommend you and your services!
With love,
Justin and Kayla Feazel

I can’t imagine a better weddings!!

We weren’t able to fly because of the weather, I was a little disappointed (at first) until we arrived at the new location, it was beyond beautiful!! I’m actually really happy we couldn’t fly, the pictures are so beautiful!!

Thank you Alaska Weddings on Ice for making our special day stress free and so BEAUTIFUL!

Quick responses and extremely helpful!!!
Everything was as stated and Herbert glacier was stunning!
Thank you for making our special day PERFECT!

Lissa & Duane, Helicopter Glacier Wedding on the Herbert Glacier

Everything about my wedding day was perfect. With Tom’s help, my fiancé and I planned our destination wedding in Juneau all the way from Tennessee. He and his wife are detail oriented people that will ensure all special requests are fulfilled and that everything is picture perfect and stress-free. From the time we arrived on the cruise ship, Tom was readily available by phone and met us as soon as we disembarked from the ship. His wife and colleague met us at the ceremony site. (We opted to rent our own car, but Tom has transportation available.) Everything at the ceremony site was beautiful, from the champagne flutes to the cake plates to my Alaskan wildflower bouquet. The cake was amazing and my husband refused to part with it, toting it around the rest of the day for pictures and eventually back to the cruise ship. At one point, it started raining lightly and before I knew it, the entire set up had been moved under a cover. There was absolutely nothing I could have worried or stressed about that day. If you are planning a wedding in southeast Alaska, hire Tom. You will not be disappointed.

Dear Tom

A fairytale wedding is not just a dream but a beautiful reality when the Weddings on Ice team is at the helm! Our officiant Tom deftly coordinated every aspect of our wedding and answered all of our questions quickly – he pays fastidious attention to details so your Big Day is absolutely perfect! Our home in Florida is a long way from Alaska but with Tom’s expert planning we had no worries at all, every aspect of our wedding was covered to a “T”!

 Upon our arrival in Juneau, our cheerful and nattily-dressed professional Driver, Julie, heartily greeted us and ushered us into the impeccable limousine decorated for the occasion. En route to the marriage license office, she amiably chatted with us regarding various points of interest, Alaskan history and courteously answered our questions about the area.

When we got to our GORGEOUS wedding site we were speechless. With the breathtaking blue glow of Mendenhall Glacier behind us, Tom warmly greeted us and introduced us to our phenomenal photographer Art Sutch.

Our ceremony was conducted with genuine warmth and the utmost professionalism from each member of the Weddings on Ice team. It’s obvious that they love what they do, you feel it. Here’s a simple formula for matrimonial success: The awe-inspiring majestic beauty of Alaska plus Weddings on Ice equals a true fairytale wedding you’ll treasure forever.

Our sincere thanks – Dennis and Robin Foster

Tom,

We can’t thank you enough.   Our wedding on September 7 was absolutely perfect.   Working with you through the planning of a long distance wedding could not have been easier.   You took care of every detail and were even able to even accommodate our silly special request.     The timing was perfect, the flowers were perfect.   Even getting married in the rain was perfect.   It was a wonderful memorable day.   I am so glad you helped line us up with Art as our photographer.  He also incredible job.   Judy , who doubled as our chauffer and picture assistance J was an absolute joy.   I had to share a few of the fun pictures with all the umbrellas.   I will send another message with a few more favorite pictures of the day.  You are welcome to use any of them on your site.

You are also welcome to post this as a testimonial.  You are amazing. The experience was amazing and I would not have changed a thing.

Thank you ! James and Carol

Hey Tom,

We just wanted to write you and tell you how perfect you made our wedding day.  From the moment we stepped off the ship we felt like everything was taken care of.  The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and we could tell that you had put so much thought into every little step.  The setting was gorgeous and Viv, Judy and you made us feel like we were family.  Even though we chose the simplest and least expensive option we felt as if you went out of your way to make it special. Thanks again.
