A capital ship

I had the distinct pleasure to photograph the wedding of Andrea and Mike out in Resurrection Bay. The platform … a 60-foot schooner called the Sailing Vessel Alaska Rover that is a replica of a blockade runnerĀ , owned by Sailing, Inc. based out of Seward. The seas and winds were ideal for sailing, and the ceremony and celebrations were replete with sailing traditions. Using a sword engraved with the couple’s name and their wedding date, the groom lopped off the heads of champagne bottles with abandon. Except, some of the more expensive bottles were resistant to the technique. The party was out in the Bay for about three hours before returning to harbor for dinner at Ray’s. The celebrations continue with a reception tomorrow. Great day for a wedding, with a great and lucky time to be the photographer tasked to capture this special ceremony.
