Your first stop in planning your wedding is to hire a professional Wedding Planner!!! We cannot stress how important this is. A wedding planner has the experience to work with your vendors (catering, venues, photographers, music, etc.), secure dates, best pricing, provide the best recommendation on services, etc. Think of your wedding as a Broadway Theatre Show. It would be a total mess without a Director who holds everything together and coordinates the show. Your wedding planner is that person.
Select a wedding planner who is a professional with referrals that you can actually talk with. This is not a time to have your cousin or a friend of a friend who saw a TV show on weddings, to handle your big day.
We work well with Lorrel with I Do Events (907.222.2415) and
Erin with BlommaDesigns (907.575.8503)
Both are excellent choices for a professional planner who understand - its yours and your future spouse's day!
After hiring a professional wedding planner - they will help you secure (deposit and contract signed) your venue.
Visit our 'Venues' page for suggestions.
Plan on $1,000.00 to $10,000.00 for your venue rental price.
Your second stop is securing a caterer. We will need to know your date - to check our availability - and your location. A $500.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your date. The balance due (minus the initial deposit) is expected fourteen (14) days prior to your reception date. Final guest count and menus are due at this time. Please remember - you do not have a caterer until your deposit is received and the date / location has been confirmed.
Wedding events during the May 15 - September 15 summer season, and November 15 - January 15 holiday season, should be booked one year in advance. This is true for any caterer you may choose, as we are all busy during those time frames.
You need to think about entertainment, floral, photography, transportation, decorations, etc.
Our most favorite wedding photographers are
Joe Connolly with Chugach Peaks Photography (907.301.9400) and Rob Stapleton with AlaskaFoto (907.230.9425)
Our most favorite DJ is Lou & Evelyn with
R&R Productions (907.373.7750)
Florist? The best in South Central Alaska are Bagoys (907.522.1922). and Anchorage Floral (907.243.1000)
Wedding Cakes? We suggest Celestial Sweets, Cakes by Ardi. For a more casual wedding - try the local grocery store bakeries (Carr's or Fred Meyers).
Menu Suggestions - please view our 'Appetizer Events' page for casual event ideas; and our 'Dinner" page for formal events.
We can prepare any item you wish, as long as it is available in Anchorage, Alaska.
That being said, we do charge more for weddings due to the increase in staff labor involved.
A typical corporate event is four (4) hours in duration, with two (2) hours set up time and one (1) hour dismantle time.
Weddings can be up to twelve to sixteen hours in duration.
Meetings prior to the wedding are also additional labor.
Please call our office and we will be happy to provide you with suggestions and a quotation.
Please note - we cannot prepare sport caught fish or game. This is illegal, and we do not control of the proper handling
of the food items before reaching us.
Therefore, we cannot ensure the food is safe to consume.
Please feel free to contact our office and we will be more than pleased to assist you with any questions you may have.
Cheers and Congratulations!
