Adventure Weddings: 2016 Year End Review

 

To have an adventure wedding, you have to be a certain kind of couple… Comes with them are usually endless amounts of curiosity, lots of love, good stories, and vibe that resonates with me the entire year.  My soul feeds off of their love, their moments, and their adventure keeps me high on adrenaline for days.  I love what I do and I’m passionate about planning and photographing adventure weddings.

 

We’re lucky to always seem to connect with those kind of adventurous folks and 2016 was a year full of them!  Huge “Thank You” to those clients who trusted us, created magic with us, and adventured rain or shine.  It was an EPIC year, so today I’d like to share with you a super fun “highlight reel” of those unforgettable adventure wedding moments!  Enjoy!

 

With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Adventure Wedding Planner and Photographer)

Norway Wedding Geirangerfjord | Liz + Mike

 

Thanks for joining us for Part 2 of Liz and Mike’s magical Norway wedding in the Geirangerfjord!  If you missed Part 1 of their Norway wedding at Hotel Alexandra, head back HERE to see.  I’m going to go minimal on my commentary today because the photos will blow you out of the water!

 

One of my all time favorites from Mike and Liz’s Norway destination wedding day is below.  Magical, just magical, right?!  The Geiranger area is full of secret spots like these!

Our second stop on our Norway adventure wedding schedule was this fabulous point.  Mike and Liz did a little fun hike to get to the top of this rock formation and the rest was beautiful history!

A summer wedding in Norway in this Geirangerfjord area will still carry a snow in the mountains.  Driving through this valley area from Loen, is one of my favorite drives in Norway.  How perfect for your Norway wedding, right?!

After a small sketchy hike, Mike and Liz found their way to this amazing spot overlooking the Geirangerfjord in all of it’s glory.I assure you the spot was 100% safe and I was probably in more danger than they were because of my angle =)

When we were Norway wedding planning with Liz and Mike, they wanted to take their guests not just on a experience, but a super fun activity to do together during the day.  Their favorite option we proposed was a 90 minute boat ride through the inspiring Geirangerfjord.

Adventure Wedding Shoes and Boots

A question we often get asked is:

What type of shoes are most appropriate to wear to an Adventure Wedding Day?

Our Answer: Large Waterproof Boots AND Hiking Boots AND Comfy Pair or Pretty Heels.

Yes, I said 3 pairs!  It’s been our experience throughout these 5+ amazing years of planning adventure weddings in Iceland, Patagonia and beyond that packing all of them allows your day to be comfortable no matter if it rains or is blue skies all day.

You might start with the hiking boots for the ceremony, transition to the tall waterproof gum/rain boots for some waterfall hiking fun and then end the night in your comfy Toms or fabulous girly stilettos.  Believe me, it’s nice to have options available throughout the day (along with extra socks for you and your groom).

We also suggest this same rule of thumb to your Adventure Wedding guests as well.  It’s good to clue them in that waterproof hiking boots are best because it is likely they will be walking on uneven terrain, lava rocks, moss, or muddy trails for 10 minutes up to 120 minutes one way, depending on your fabulous Adventure Wedding Schedule.  Regular tennis/running shoes are not going to be durable enough to last and keep people comfortable through the entire day.

Your next question is probably where do you buy the best Adventure Wedding Shoes and Boots for brides, grooms, and guests?  Don’t worry, I will share my favorite list:

Merrell

REI

Sorel

Hunter

Joules

DSW

Badgley Mischka

Zappos

Heels

Toms

Adventure Wedding What to Where

Tips for getting the most out of your Adventure Wedding Shoes / Boots:

  1. If you do not usually wear heels and want to for your wedding day, start ASAP.  Start out wearing them while doing household chores (1-2 hours a day) and build up until you can stand an entire day.  I know this may sound silly, but the more time your toes and the balls of your feet have to get a little callused, the longer you’ll be able to stand, walk, and run around in those fancy stilettos with no complaints (Serious advice from a 15+ year stiletto veteran- believe me it works!).
  2. Invest $13 USD to purchase a pair of Heel Savers by Solemates you’ll be glad you did later!
  3. If you are worried about your shoes slipping there are shoe grips you can purchase that go on the bottom of your shoes and also inside to add comfort and prevent slippage.
  4.  Do your research before buying!  Many shoe sites now have shoe reviews which you may find helpful before buying online.  If also buying online make sure you check out Retail Me Not for a possible coupon code!  That site rocks.
  5. Remember to take your Adventure Wedding Shoes or Boots to your dress fittings to ensure a perfect bottom hem (and bring your other shoes if you’re considering a change at your reception to gauge length difference).
  6. Wrangle your fiancé into dancing with you on a hardwood floor to give your destination wedding shoes a test run.  Make sure you can move, spin, be dipped and regain your balance in them easily.
  7. Lay your shoes out the night before your wedding (together with any other accessories too) so your awesome Adventure Wedding Photographer, can snap some super sweet detail shots.
  8. Clean your shoes once you get back from your Adventurous Destination Wedding.  I know my heels were stained with mud by the end of our Adventure Wedding ceremony.  It took me a bucket of water, Simple Green, Dove soap, and 40 minutes to restore them back to their original glam status but I am so glad I did!
  9. Wear them again, again, and again they’ll make you smile and transform you back to your newly wedded bliss =)

Adventure Wedding Planners Exciting Announcement!

 

Once upon a time… Or to my extreme sports enthusiasts out there: “Oh shit there I was…”

 

I was the Iceland Wedding Planner and Photographer for a super cool couple from Chicago, Illinois.  It was raining that day in Iceland, so we executed our “Plan B” ceremony location, my favorite cave.  However, when we arrived we were greeted by a 200 person film crew for a upcoming Bollywood movie.  They were there with the famed actor’s, food trucks, gear trucks,  and tons of porta potties.

 

I’ll be honest, seeing that many people there, I panicked slightly.  Not because I wouldn’t be able to use the location (which never happens because we always get private permission and permits) but rather, I was thinking how off schedule this could potentially make our day (excuse the OCD part of me, lol)!  The couple had no idea that anything was out of the ordinary as I jumped out of the jeep and darted to the group to have a chat.  An easy 5 minutes later the entire crew was gone😉

 

Fast forward 12 hours and I was back at the hotel finishing up the table styling for the couples dreamy reception for two.  I grabbed a glass of wine and my computer to catch up on emails and sat down in the hotel lobby…  Completely enamored in my work I do not look up when I hear a man’s voice say, “Are you that 5 foot 3 inch wedding planner that kicked our entire crew out of the cave earlier today?”  I laughed and leaned around my computer to see who was so witty.  To my pleasant surprise, a 6 foot 7 inch  Icelandic Adonis was speaking to me.  My jaw dropped and that giddy smile still hasn’t left my face!

 

That night, I met a man who lives and breathes adventure just as I do (maybe even more) personally and professionally.  Allow me to introduce you to Davíð… He creates special effects for all of the big movies that come here to Iceland (you know like Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Noah, the list is endless) and has the incredible hobby of being on Iceland’s SAR team (Search and Rescue). ….yeah swoon swoon, right?!  From that moment on, we found ourselves inseparable.

Our third date was a 7 day adventure to Isle of Skye, where we went coasteering, hiked epic cliff lines, dined at small little cafes, and discovered super secret locales!

He didn’t even bat an eyelash when I suggested we spend a month in South America! Where we ventured through Chilean wine country, Rainforests, through epic fjords, and made our way down to the famed awe inspiring region of Patagonia!

Since Davíð and I met at the “top of the world” we thought it would be fun for us to ring in the New Year together at the bottom of the world in Ushuaia Argentina!

We spent several days camping (um yeah the only man on the planet that can get me to camp in a tent) and hiking the famed “W Trek” in the Torres Del Paine National Park.  Complete with glaciers, granite towers, and moments of mountaineering!

One of the most magical set of days we spent together was within the Los Glaciares National Parkwhere we explored the Perito Moreno Glacier and the Fitz Roy Mountains!
