Wedding Wed: honeymoon adventures Alaska Day 1

We arrived in Alaska at midnight for after a whole day of traveling, 
We were exhausted, checked into Alyeska Resort & found this:
No that is not a mirrored image- they put us in a room with double beds. 
On the first night of our honeymoon.

Yes, this was fixed for night #2. 
But we had especially paid for the top or "summit" floor
& were downgraded for a king bed two floors down.
but you know, priorities...

Our first view was amazing!

We had a great view of the lift that takes you to the top of the peak & to the Seven Glaciers restaurant {amazing! Ate there night 1- details on next week's wedding wednesday!}

We also ordered room service for breakfast- my first time having breakfast in bed & room service!

The hotel was so pretty!

We got ready and went for an amazing walk in "Winner Creek"!

I was so proud of my packing skills, 
perfect amount of layers {& patterns} 

What I Wore: glasses- Steve Madden, fur- Michael Kors, sweater- New York & Co. {thrifted}, top- thrifted from Mary's Secret Wardrobe in Belmar, NJ, jeans- Levis, boots- Target

Still rocking my Essie "Bachelorette Bash" nails with my new wedding ring =)

We hopped in the car & took a drive to town,
& yes we did sing part of our wedding song while riding in the car,
"You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile"

stopped & shopped at a little Jade shop on the way!

We went under the bridge in the little town of Girdwood,

& found one of the coolest things!
Wild salmon!

This spot was one of the prettiest places I have ever seen!

Take me back!
But wait until July- I don't do winter very well & Alaska is pretty serious about the whole winter thing.
