In the fall of 2013, Tara and Landon emailed us and simply said, “Looking to elope in Iceland this coming summer –just the two of us, no big show, and no guests. But we need somewhere spectacular, like a waterfall, a glacier, or the top of a mountain. We’re adventurous, so anywhere is an option for us.”
Thus it began! My mind starting reeling! In case you missed our last post sharing their wonderful Iceland wedding video, feel free to go back here and delight in it. Fun Facts: Tara and Landon are from Calgary, Alberta Canada and they are both Geologists by trade. They are enthralled with earthy matters, the textures, tones, and history that has made Iceland evolve. When we were brainstorming on Iceland pre wedding locations for their Iceland engagement session we kept coming back to most historic landscapes in Iceland, Thingvellir National Park.
Luckily Iceland’s 5 day rain stent didn’t even phase us! Landon and Tara embraced the unruly weather by donning Icelandic sweaters, hats, and hiking boots to ensure the adventure level was at it’s max =) Our favorite kind of clients! During their e-session at Öxarárfoss Waterfall they tested their limits by venturing out onto cliff edges, enduring waterfall spray, hoping marshy islands, and running hand in hand around the Iceland tectonic plates (European and North American tectonic plates).
It was a magical evening and proves how exciting an Iceland e-session can be, even in the rain. They held their Iceland destination wedding the next day on the top of famed Mýrdalsjökull Glacier which is on the rim of the Katla Volcano… Woohoo! So please stay tuned next time for that awesomeness we will be sharing!
