To have an adventure wedding, you have to be a certain kind of couple… Comes with them are usually endless amounts of curiosity, lots of love, good stories, and vibe that resonates with me the entire year. My soul feeds off of their love, their moments, and their adventure keeps me high on adrenaline for days. I love what I do and I’m passionate about planning and photographing adventure weddings.
We’re lucky to always seem to connect with those kind of adventurous folks and 2016 was a year full of them! Huge “Thank You” to those clients who trusted us, created magic with us, and adventured rain or shine. It was an EPIC year, so today I’d like to share with you a super fun “highlight reel” of those unforgettable adventure wedding moments! Enjoy!
With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Adventure Wedding Planner and Photographer)

21 countries, 10 states, and 6 islands were conquered this year.
…and today I write you from the “bottom of the world” in Ushuaia, Argentina. Did you know it is the furthest most Southern city in the world. I find it slightly ironic since my business first started at the token “top of the world” in the Nordic countries. It seems only fitting I begin my best year yet here at the bottom!
As many of my weekly followers know, 2015 was a big year of changes for me personally and also professionally. But taking a big bird’s eye view back over the last several years (and maybe you will to?), I sit for a moment, smile and am reminded at how different each year has been for me as well. Different in gratitude, grace, in mission, and adventure. I am addicted to it, crave it, live it daily, and breathe adventure every day in my life and in my career. When those two things aligned, my life changed to purely positive. I learned how to love, live in the moment, embrace my passions, found where there is a will there is always a way, and a renewed respect and admiration for people and cultures, I frankly didn’t know was possible.
I committed to myself after my divorce was finalized in January 2015, I very would very bravely pack up everything I own, put it in a storage unit, and leave the USA to travel for a year in order to bring my Adventure Wedding concept to life. I did and I have absolutely no regrets (even after flipping a car in Galloway, Ireland) as I come to the close of 2015. The things I have seen, tasted, and experienced, I could write for years on (and I will, so please follow Your Adventure Wedding). The new offbeat locations I have brought into my destination wedding planning repertoire are unbelievable! Did you see my travel schedule I posted? That was just a simple taste as to what I have planned… if you know me, you know I get down and offbeat, not mainstream tourism! My travels continue on into 2016 and I will continue to live out of only 3 suitcases and a purse =) It’s a lifestyle I have come to love and embrace whole heartedly with all my being.
Follow me on Instagram to see daily updates and/or inspiration!
Additionally, I am incredibly thankful to the couples who trusted me in 2015 to plan and forever document their Iceland weddings and elopements (and locations beyond), it was so amazing to be a part of history with you! No one can rock out rainy, snowy, and cloudy weddings with a smile, like you! I have the best most hardcore clients ever, THANK YOU for being so badass! …and to my fabulous couples upcoming in 2016 and 2017, you have challenged me and more importantly, trusted me to step it up a notch and plan some indescribably unique things in some incredible places, I heart you!! THANK YOU and I look forward to making it the best year yet!!
To my amazing partners all over the world… Without you I wouldn’t be able to rock out adventure weddings in some of the most obscure locations people told me weren’t possible! Thank you for supporting and running with me in my crazy awesome visions! I’m really excited to having you as part as our “A-Team” of vendors as we change the way the world views destination weddings!
So, I left you a little teaser from last week’s Christmas Eve post about some big news, right?! In an effort to continue our mission of leading the change in the destination wedding industry to equal Adventure Weddings… I’m happy to announce that we have officially opened up our South American market! If you’re an outdoorsy couple who loves to hike, be in the middle of epic landscape scenes, and be completely awed by nature then allow me to introduce you to the underrated: Patagonia.
….wondering where it is?
Patagonia sits within the Andes mountain range in Southern sections of Chile and Argentina. This is also where the mysterious and most intriguing “W” trek of mountains live and breathe. There are volcanoes, lakes, rain-forests, glaciers, fjords, caves, penguins, bird watching, endless mountain views, and so many unique experiences to be had, you will not be able to sit patiently still! We would love to chat more with you about this location being your unforgettable destination wedding location, please contact us for more information and if you’re up to the challenge of being the first!
Every year, must conclude with reliving some lovely moments in time, right? Today, I’d like to share with you a few of our favorites from the 2015 Iceland wedding year (Note: We do not post the majority of our Iceland weddings or destination weddings on this blog because we respect the privacy of our high profile clients) but some of our clients love and allow us to share them with you, so let’s look back and delight in those today along with a few of my favorite travel photos!
Enjoy! …and cheers (Skal!) to you and yours as we head into 2016 being our best year yet!
With a smile, Ann Peters (Adventure Wedding Planner and Photographer)
::PS:: Come back again soon to see the EPIC wedding we photographed at the Igloo Hotel in Lapland!
