Elizabeth & Rob in Juneau, AK

Elizabeth and Rob met when they were both in the bridal party for a mutual friend. They stayed up all night talking after the wedding! Rob proposed on a hand crafted wooden canoe at dusk in the Boston Harbor. While Elizabeth took pictures of the sunset, Rob got down on one knee and pulled the ring out of his jacket.

The Bride:Elizabeth Eley, 26, recruiter
The Groom: Robert Nason, 29, PhD Student at Syracuse University
The Date: June 2012

Elizabeth grew up in Juneau and her parents still reside there. The historic log chapel of Elizabeth's family's church was where Elizabeth had her first job as a tour guide. The couple had a vision for a simple rustic wedding. They chose venues that did not require much decoration and had a strong color palette, so they chose colors and accents to compliment the existing decor.
