One of the BEST parts of our adventure wedding planning process is getting to know our clients through Skype meetings. It’s important to hear about your love stories, adventures together, interests, and limits. Everyone adventures at a different level and has different types of scenery that excites them. Some may think a mountain top with sweeping vistas is ideal, whereas others are thrilled at the idea of venturing to a glacier area, secret waterfall, or private cave. Once we have an awesome understanding, we spend time hand crafting unique adventures away from typical tourist locations, in any part of the world.
Trishia and Chris who hail from Hawaii, reached out to us totally in love with our adventure wedding concept. They yearned for something offbeat and an active day they could spend together pushing their limits, making unforgettable memories. They were engaged on a black sand beach in Hawaii so drawing that element in was also a key ingredient. After our initial conversation we all decided an adventure wedding in Iceland would be ideal. So the awesome Iceland wedding planning time began!
Living on a dramatic island themselves, they felt strongly that Iceland would be able to provide the unique experience they were looking for. So our Your Adventure Wedding planning team, handcrafted 6 amazing unique hour by hour schedules for these two to consider and they fell in love with one that would marry them in an ice cave! Between December – March is Iceland’s formal “ice caving” and Northern Lights season so they were just in time to induldge with their Iceland elopement being planned for the 17th of March!
The day began at 5am for hair and makeup at one of our favorite hotels, Icelandair Klaustur. There was a snow storm forecasted for the next 2 days in a row, but these two embraced the snowy conditions!
The interesting things about several of Iceland’s 13 glaciers is that many of the glaciers have layers. You’ll see white ice / snow, black sand that has embedded, and blue ice being the most pure. It’s pretty neat to see the layers play together. Ethereal.
After a 10-15 minute hike, we were at the base of the ice cave ready to strap on our crampons and climb inside!
The textures and tones inside of that natural ice cave set the scene for the perfect winter Iceland wedding ceremony!
How pretty was the brides Iceland wedding bouquet in front of the glacier?!
Ohhh and the grooms dapper Iceland wedding boutonniere, love!
Even though the snow was blowing hard and fog setting in these two held each other closer and savored the view during their Iceland elopement adventure!
I adore brides who pick up their Iceland wedding dress ready to hike!
Never have I ever been to an area that was so recently created… As the glacier receded, in one of our weekly scouting days, we found a hidden cave that I’m pretty sure I was the FIRST to ever go inside. Seriously, there was still ash inside there from the last eruption. It was INCREDIBLE and frankly left me speechless. I was soooo freaking excited to share it with these two for a private Iceland wedding picnic inside!
Trishia and Chris were left equally speechless to have such a unique experience during their elopement adventure with us!
Ohhhh did I mention as part of their private picnic we did a traditional bbq of Icelandic hot dogs?! It was AWESOME! …side note to those who cringe at the idea of a hot dog on their wedding day- I hate American hot dogs but I could eat 3 a day of Icelandic. They are made with lamb meat, not pig parts 😉
It’s been several months since their Iceland elopement adventure and seeing these images still give me goosebumps! The cave and the glacier behind, what a combo!
Iceland wedding photos are always at the top of my list! The unique textures and tones just blow my mind! Look at those icicles!! Crazy!
The weather got a tiny bit worse after lunch but Trishia and Chris just laughed and adventured harder through it! …and as adventure wedding photographers we just role with the excitement!
Our next Iceland wedding adventure stop was discovering a secret canyon!
Since they come from an island full of golden beaches, they loved the idea of exploring a private black sand beach during their Iceland wedding day!
For the last stop of the day, we “plan B’d” the situation and tried to find blue skies and green instead of snow! Our adventure wedding planning team took them to a new canyon we had recently scouted and it was just PERFECT!
Crossing rivers on your Iceland wedding day is just a normal fun activity to do as you adventure together hand in hand!
As a quick warm up these two got to try out a very traditional Icelandic snack… By having a shot of Brennivin (also referred to as “black death”) and dried fish (or fish jerky)! You either love it or hate it.
In the evening when we made it back to the fabulous hotel, they had a little bit of time to rest and refresh before they delighted in a delicious dinner for two! Did you know the restaurant inside of the Icelandair Klaustur Hotel, has hands down the BEST Arctic Char on the island?! Look how delicious it is! Yum!!
Chris and Trishia,
Oh my gosh!! You got married inside of such a badass ice cave in Iceland! What an incredible day you shared together. Keep adventuring together and exploring new places together to keep your forever newlywed status alive!
It was so much planning and photographing your unforgettable elopement adventure in Iceland! Thank you for choosing us! We hope you relive this day over and over again! We’d love to see you back for an anniversary adventure to show you some amazing new spots! ❤
With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Adventure Wedding Planner and Photographer)

Oh la la Friends!
We have something uber special for you today! Crystal and Devin were seeking the ultimate adventure wedding in Iceland… and guess what?! They found it! They married on the secret side of one of Iceland’s 13 glaciers and held an epic 12+ hour adventure wedding to boot! So come along with us today and we share with you their incredible EXPERIENCE! Also head over to the fabulous POPSUGAR. blog for more!
What a knockout combo… THIS Iceland Wedding Dress and THESE Sorel Boots!
…and their Iceland Wedding Welcome Bags?! #yesplease!
Because our adventure weddings in Iceland begin early… We like to do the first look before we head out! Devin adored Crystal in her dress!
These two and their guests were so badass! They didn’t care that it was raining, windy, or that they needed to cross some glacier rivers either!
Iceland Glacier Weddings make me totally SWOON! …and these two make it look easy!
Sometimes there are unexpected Iceland wedding guests!
These two were an Iceland wedding photographers dream come true!
…an adventure wedding in Iceland wouldn’t be complete without a traditional BBQ of hot dogs and all their toppings!
Crystal and Devin ventured to some beautiful secret waterfalls throughout their Iceland wedding day too!
Then it was like they beamed themselves to MARS!
Crystal + Devin felt a special pull to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. Normally we do not adventure to tourist locations but we made an exception for the dreaminess below!
As the sun set, the adventure drew to a close and we retreated back to Hotel Ranga in Hella Iceland for their intimate wedding reception!
As unpredictable as Iceland can be, we tried to launch wish lanterns but sadly the wind one, so we switched to sparklers for their send off!
Congratulations Devin + Crystal!
What an incredibly unforgettable adventure wedding in Iceland you shared!

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)

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!
The Polar Nights in Lapland are an amazing sight! although the sun doesn’t not rise, if it’s clear, you get a “mock”sunrise like this during the beginning of January! So dream for your Finnish elopement!
These two would make any Finland wedding photographer swoon! So in love!
Just because you decide to elopement, does not mean you should skimp on the details! How stunning is this Lapland wedding ceremony setup?!
Ohhhh these petals!!! My favorite shade of PINK! Thanks Flyboy Naturals!
A glas teepee makes such a beautiful Lapland wedding ceremony location!
Northern Lights wedding photos can always be possible during a Lapland winter wedding!
The Lapland wedding image below might go down as one of my top FAVORITE images, ever! So much snowy goodness and beauty!
