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).

But!  Since there adventurous elopement in Lapland was so BEAUTIFUL… we need break it into 2 blog posts!  So today we will share with you their stunning ceremony and first half of their adventure wedding.  Then stay tuned next week for the second and most adventurous half (hello dog sledding, styled reception for two, and reindeer Northern Lights hunting!).

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

Kakslauttanen Igloo Resort offers a uniquely beautiful experience in the Kelo-Glass Igloo Cabins!  Imagine waking up in one of these for our adventurous wedding in Finland!  Kavoos and Diana did during their elopement adventure in Lapland and savored every second of it!

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)
