WHY I CREATED

ALPINE TO SHORELINE

Alpine to Shoreline was created for the wanderlust couples and adventure enthusiasts who find their core happiness derived from nature. The ones whose most joy filled moments and precious memories were those on a mountain summit or barefoot on a sandy beach. It’s the life changing trips you take abroad that change your definition of “home” from where you were born to another country overseas. Maybe you had your first date on a sunset hike, said your first “I love you” on a road trip, or share a dual passion for surfing. Whether it’s a specific location or a shared activity, the world’s most beautiful landscapes seem to be the root of it all.

When I was hiking in Switzerland, a friend had asked me if I were to ever get married what venue would I have it at (since I’ve been to quite a few over the years haha). I took a minute and then looked around and said my dream venue would be “this” as I outstretched my arms towards the towering view of the Swiss Alps. To me, the tallest mountains in the world are the equivalent to the wedding day “guests” I couldn’t imagine not being part of my day.

The inspiration for Alpine to Shoreline comes from a solo hiking trip I took to the Italian Dolomites in Northern Italy with about 3 weeks of elementary Italian under my belt (my charade game got very strong that week). To this day, I believe the views of the Italian Dolomites are the most beautiful landscapes in the world (Swiss Alps are a close second). When I was sitting outside of a nearby Rifugio looking at the mountains and wild horses around me, I felt the happiest I’ve ever been. It felt as though my entire being could explode with joy and I had to keep reminding myself that “yes, the jaw dropping landscape in front of me was in fact real life”.

I thought to myself how magical would it be to combine this peak happiness of a natural area and combine it with the ultimate joy of getting married to your best friend. How epic it would be to exchange vows in the location you love the most next to the person you love the most in the whole world! “Alpine to Shoreline” isn’t just for couples who adore mountain and beach settings. It’s for any location that sets YOUR soul on fire, whether that’s in a national park, going back to your favorite European city where you can eat endless chocolate croissants, or a bucket list location you’ve only dreamed of going to.

When you get married with Alpine to Shoreline I want you to have the most incredible experience and photos that tell the true love story of your day that you can cherish in years to come. I want you to be able to celebrate your anniversary in this location looking just as it was the last time you were there and look at your walls of photos when you’re 80 years old and still think “DAMN we are one cool couple”. I want you to feel safe & comfortable in your own skin with a wedding day that is uniquely you. A celebration with just the two of you exchanging vows in a breathtaking spot or surrounded by your family- whether that’s biological, chosen family of friends, or beloved pets.

So take a look around, and if you feel this aligns with the vision of your day, I’ll welcome you to the Alpine to Shoreline family with the BIGGEST virtual hug arms :)
