Amelia Nash and Adam Richard were married Aug. 11, 2012, on the beach at Paradise Cove in Haines, Alaska. Dwight Nash, the bride’s father, served as marriage minister.
The bride is a program director for KHNS Public Radio in Haines.
The groom is a graduate of the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Ore. He is a chef at the Fireweed Restaurant in Haines.
Amelia wore a custom-made lace-over-silk dress that her sister, Nori Nash, brought from Vietnam, with fabric Nori found in Thailand.
Juneau musicians, Steve Tada, violinist, and accordionist Dale Wygant provided music, including “La Vie en Rose” during entry of the bridal party and a Russian troika for the recessional.
Nori was maid of honor. Restaurateur Lisa Loberg, Adam’s employer, served as “best man.” Willow Bryant was flower girl.
Amelia is the daughter of Dwight and Nancy Nash of Haines. Adam’s parents, Bob and Kathy Richard of Danville, were on hand, as were Mike and Sharon Wick of Drummond, Wis., Adam’s uncle and aunt.
Amelia’s family guests included brothers, Adrian Nash of Haines and Carl and Emma Nash of Eugene, Ore.; aunts, Diane Nash of Juneau and Becky Nash of Haines; and cousin, Corrie Nash of Juneau.
Out-of-town friends include Diana Boro and John Boswell of Seattle, Ashley Martin of Santa Cruz, Calif., Sara Fisher of Seattle, and Reed Scott-Schwalbach and Chris Celauro of Portland.
Amelia’s uncle, Don Nash, donated the fish for the reception at the Fort Seward parade grounds, as did Norman Hughes and Stuart DeWitt. Jasmine Bryant and Sara Jaymot made the cakes. “Honky Tonk Habit,” featuring Chris and Lindy Jones and Clay Good, provided music. Chris and Lindy invited Adam and his family to their wedding on the parade grounds six years ago, shortly after Adam arrived in Haines.
“The Nash Family Ramblers,” comprised of Amelia, her parents and siblings, sang “Hey, Good Lookin’” during a dance at the tribal house. Dan Henry and Robin Grace hosted a rehearsal lunch on Aug. 10 across Mud Bay. Greg Horner made the couple’s rings.
The couple will honeymoon in Italy.
