Josh and Chelsea's Whittier Wedding

Josh and Chelsea are dear friends to me. When I was in Juneau they came to visit me twice. Josh, who used to live in Petersburg, understands the amazing beauty of Southeast. I remember the first time I met Chelsea was one of their first visits South. It was pouring rain in a typical Juneau way, and they were heading off trail to explore the backcountry of Juneau. I was so impressed with her as she grabbed a backpack twice her size, and strapped it on. She covered it with a trash bag to protect it from the non stop pouring rain, cinched her hood tighter and said to Josh "Im ready". I knew right then this was the girl for Josh! For the wedding they chose to have a destination style at the Inn at Whittier. This is an amazing place! A hidden gem for sure. Seeing as it was a destination wedding, we all rented rooms, and the Inn shut the whole place down, only wedding party and guests allowed. What an amazing time, I felt like I was on vacation! I was shocked to see how much snow Whittier still had. For those not familiar with the area the only way to drive to Whittier is on the train tracks! It's the longest multi use road-train track in North America, at 2.5 miles long. You have to drive through Mt Maynard to get there. This dual road allows you to access a different coastal area of Alaska, Prince William Sound.
