After conquering over 35 countries, having countless adventures together, and an EPIC proposal in South Africa, where in the world do you plan your destination wedding? This was the dilemma Stacey and Aaron were faced with… They were seeking a place and a landscape that would be nothing like they have ever seen before. Having a Iceland elopement in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, was their answer.
Although these two had been to Iceland once before, they were called back to this magical landscape to have their dreamy Iceland elopement! Iceland is one of those countries that you can continuously visit and never see the same thing twice, forever! Seriously folks, I live here and I am still adventuring to new places each day/week!
This winter has been one of the mildest on record for decades. Typically in March, we have a lot more snow in the mountains and the ground, but for Stacey and Aaron, this was the PERFECT amount! So come along with me today to witness their beautiful elopement in Iceland!
Ohhhhhhh swoon! Look at that Iceland wedding dress!
….and Aaron’s tartan suit!
Stacey’s arrival into that sweet little black church gave me goosebumps!
Awww and Aaron’s reaction of seeing his beautiful bride was uber sweet!
Can we hit the pause button for a sec and admire Stacey’s unique Iceland wedding bouquet?!
Every Icelander will tell you that the Snaefellsnes is not only a stunning place to visit but that the peninsula is enchanted!
Don’t worry, even though it’s been a super mild winter, we found a glorious amount of snow to have for some romantic Iceland elopement photos!
Kirkjufell Mountain (and waterfall) is incredibly beautiful when it has a light dusting of snow on it… Making way for stunning elopement photos!
There are many secret places within the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to escape away from tourists… We took a little trip to one of my favorite secret waterfalls for a fun little adventure crossing rivers and such!
The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is known to have an abundance of golden sand beaches ready for you to explore!
Ever think about venturing to a shipwreck beach with crazy awesome lava rock formations?! These two ROCKED IT!
Toasting with bubbles cliffside, is a must do during your Iceland elopement!
When the weather changes in Iceland, it’s just a wonderful opportunity to HUG harder!
…and laugh harder that you have somehow experienced 4 seasons in one day 😉
Take a page out of Stacey and Aaron’s book and make sure you take time to truly enjoy the view too!
As if their day was not adventurous enough, these two opted in on my suggestion of heading down inside of a 8,000 year old lava tube to explore it! Special Note: All of these images were taken in 100% darkness! How cool, right?!
After 10+ hours of awesome adventures, it was time to rest, refresh, and get their second wind for their Iceland wedding reception for two!
It started snowing again so sadly no Northern Lights graced us, but we mocked up a super fun nighttime wedding photoshoot instead for Stacey and Aaron!
