Iceland Elopement Adventure Wedding

 

Weddings in Iceland have always had a special place in my heart.  Endless reasons, but the main one being that I actually met my husband during an elopement in Iceland years ago.  Check out Iceland Wedding Planner for more specific details!

 

We are always extremely honored when a couple chooses us to plan and photograph their adventurous elopement in Iceland!  Today I’m excited to share with you one of our favorite adventure weddings from this year: Marlene and Alan.  They spent the day chasing waterfalls during their Iceland elopement.  Enjoy getting lost in their Iceland wedding photo dreaminess!

New Zealand Adventure Wedding

 

When I caught the travel bug, one of the first countries I spent an extended amount of time in was in Southern New Zealand.  For a thrill seeker like me, it was the mecca of adventure.

 

Specifically, in the South Island, I found to be a place that I could do a skydive at sunrise, be bungee jumping into a canyon before lunch, ice climbing or heli-skiing on a glacier in the afternoon, and then choose to either go on a hike or wine tasting at night.  It had everything, I ever wished for.  Throw in some cool caves, waterfalls, pristine beaches, unforgettable lush hikes, and landscapes that went on for days and I was in the epitome of happiness!

new-zealand-wedding-in-milford-sound-your-adventure-wedding

When you think dynamic landscape and endless adventure options for your destination wedding adventures, I sure hope New Zealand is on that list!

 

One of my obsessions to it has always been that the landscape is so diverse no matter the season.  This fun fact makes New Zealand an ideal destination wedding adventure location!  Can you imagine yourself getting married in New Zealand in one of the following locations?

  • Abel Tasman
  • Fox Glacier
  • Mount Aspiring National Park Wedding
  • Milford Sound
  • Lake Taupo
  • Lake Matheson
  • Mount Ngauruhoe
  • Golden Sand Beaches
  • Incredible Caves
  • New Zealand Wine Country Weddings!
  • Motuoapa
  • The 90 Mile Beach
  • Cute Coves
  • Putangirua Pinnacles
  • Fabulous Falls
  • Thermal Pools
  • Marlborough Sounds
  • The Shire (yes… remember Lord of the Rings was filmed here)!

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!

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 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!

Adventure Wedding - Your Adventure Wedding

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!

Adventure Wedding Locations - Your Adventure Wedding

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!

One of my favorite hikes we have done together was in Norway doing the hike to Trolltunga. Have you ever been to Norway?
