Lofoten Islands Wedding Adventure in Norway

“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.”

-Paulo Coelho

Meeting Davíð Geir Jónasson, changed the course of my life forever.

Do you remember how we met?  In that moment, as clique as I know it sounds, I knew my life wouldn’t be the same again.  Seriously, in all of the millions of people I have met, never have I ever met someone like Davíð.  He looks at me the way all women want (and deserves) to be looked at by a partner.  I’ve never laughed harder, never travelled farther around the world with anyone and still left smiling by the end of it.  To put it raw and frankly, I’m addicted to him. His energy, book to street smarts, risky wit, infinite positivity and the way he brings out the best in everyone he encounters.  He adventures at the same level as me (some might even say higher and I might agree).

So where does an Adventure Wedding Planner / Photographer and a Filmmaker get married?  Well… We eloped in the Lofoten Islands (Northern Norway).  Have you ever heard of these islands before?  If not, go HERE and read up on them!

The shapes, the tones, the textures of the vivid mountains of the Lofoten Islands cannot be found anywhere else in the world.  They come chock full of mystery and unforgettable romance.  So come along with me today as I, my super talented friend (and colleague) Jean Smith and her brilliant cinematographer husband Travis Smith share with you the unbelievable documentation from our Lofoten Islands wedding day.

With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Lofoten Islands Norway Wedding Planners)
