Theresa Lee and Jake Voss

June 3, 2017

Everywhere Theresa and Jake travel to, they have one must-do activity: visit the zoo. On one trip to the Anchorage Zoo, Jake made the trip extra special by proposing. “It was a good surprise because I was never expecting it on a Monday evening after the gym,” says Theresa. Theresa and Jake’s favorite part of their wedding day was seeing all of their friends from all spans of life – elementary, middle and high school and college – who all traveled to see them. “We realized very quickly that no matter the distance or the last time we saw each other, we were able to pick up where we left off with everyone,” says Theresa. The couple enjoyed sharing their love of Alaska with the nearly 70 out-of-state guests – from the caribou and salmon dinner to the beautiful rustic mining venue. “Jake’s Uncle Larry, who was a collegiate football champion, performed the ceremony and ended up being a big softy and made everyone tear up,” recalls Theresa. Also special was Jake’s choice of ceremony music: “He nailed it by making everyone laugh with ‘You Make My Dreams Come True’ by Hall & Oats."
