Daphne Tan and David ‘Shawn’ Hill

August 4, 2017

Daphne and Shawn enjoyed an intimate wedding – no guests or wedding parties, just the love between them. Before their ceremony, they hiked Knik Glacier, exploring with their vendors. “Despite meeting our vendors for the first time that day, it felt like we were spending the day with a group of friends checking out cool sights,” says Daphne. Without any distractions, she and Shawn were able to be present for and cherish every minute of their mountain adventure. Being on the mountains caused a slight shift in plans for Daphne’s wedding attire plans, though, from her red heels to a pair of boots. She gets a laugh out of how the boots and crampons show up in all of their photos. In the end, everything was peaceful and just how they wanted. “After our wedding, we sat on the deck at Raven’s Perch Restaurant and enjoyed the view of the surrounding Chugach Mountains until sunset.”
