Adventurous Elopement in Finland: Part 2

Lapland is such an memorable experience in winter!  The trees are buckling with snow, the Northern Lights are dancing, and the warmth of the houses you cuddle up in is blazing!  Hopefully last week you delighted in the first half of Kavoos ad Diana’s beautiful elopement at Kakslauttanen Igloo Resort (the famed igloo hotel).  If not, go back HERE to see.

Picking right up where we left off… Next up on the adventure wedding agenda was a dog sledding safari!  These two braved the temps to go out for a hardcore epic dog sled adventure through the Finnish forests.  Afterwards, they cuddled up in front of the fire, shared some champagne and kisses!

After the warm up break we took another polar nights adventure through the snow for more Lapland elopement photos!  Oh so dreamy and romantic!  Shortly after they delighted in a perfectly styled dinner for two which also held an adventure theme throughout.  Kavoos and Diana also enjoyed a traditional Lappish meal which was delicious!

As nighttime continued and grew deeper, we went out to hunt more Northern Lights via reindeer!  Instead we found a snowstorm, but it was still just as dreamy!  Savor their uber romantic Finland wedding (elopement) portraits below!

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

Lapland Wedding: Kavoos + Diana (Part 1)

Kavoos and Diana, had the burning desire to hold an adventurous elopement in Lapland!  Which is quite brave considering they are California natives and during winter northern Finland is well below freezing.  But sometimes a location and the opportunity to see Northern Lights is all it takes to muster up courage to have an epically snowy incredible experience!

During the months of December and January, Lapland is in full swing of “polar nights,” which means the sun doesn’t actually rise and the “blue light” daylight hours are between 1-2 hours a day.  Our adventure wedding planning team, crafted an epic adventure wedding day at the Kakslauttanen Igloo Resort (the famed igloo hotel).
