Thanks for joining us for Part 2 of Liz and Mike’s magical Norway wedding in the Geirangerfjord! If you missed Part 1 of their Norway wedding at Hotel Alexandra, head back HERE to see. I’m going to go minimal on my commentary today because the photos will blow you out of the water!
One of my all time favorites from Mike and Liz’s Norway destination wedding day is below. Magical, just magical, right?! The Geiranger area is full of secret spots like these!
Our second stop on our Norway adventure wedding schedule was this fabulous point. Mike and Liz did a little fun hike to get to the top of this rock formation and the rest was beautiful history!
A summer wedding in Norway in this Geirangerfjord area will still carry a snow in the mountains. Driving through this valley area from Loen, is one of my favorite drives in Norway. How perfect for your Norway wedding, right?!
After a small sketchy hike, Mike and Liz found their way to this amazing spot overlooking the Geirangerfjord in all of it’s glory.I assure you the spot was 100% safe and I was probably in more danger than they were because of my angle =)
These two were the perfect combo for this incredible Norway wedding photo stop!
Total magazine cover, right?! Leaves me breathless.
This couple and this view! The heavens opened for this amazing Norway wedding in the Geirangerfjord!
There amazing group of 16 guests travelled from California for this surprise Norway wedding adventure! …and they were in total awe all day!
As we made our way through the Geirangerfjord and down to the docks, we stopped for a few minutes for a sweet champagne toast!
I found myself addicted to sooo many spots throughout this Geirangerfjord area! The character and the charm were off the charts!
When we were Norway wedding planning with Liz and Mike, they wanted to take their guests not just on a experience, but a super fun activity to do together during the day. Their favorite option we proposed was a 90 minute boat ride through the inspiring Geirangerfjord.
Norway Wedding Photos with the famed Seven Sisters Waterfall in the background! Swoon!
After the Geirangerfjord wedding boat adventure concluded, we were off to one of our final stops which included a beautiful mountain view on one side and sweet little Norwegian waterfall on the other!
Nothing better than a bride and groom being super adventurous on their wedding day skipping over rocks and water! Mike and Liz were willing to go whereever for the best Norway wedding photos!
I’m totally OBSESSED with this waterfall in the Geirangerfjord! How perfect for a destination wedding in Norway, right?!
Mike + Liz, We know Norway will forever be a part of your love story and souls. But we challenge you to come back to this intoxicating country each year on your Norway wedding anniversary to explore a new part of the country as your love grows!

When you think about Norway, what vibe or elements come first to mind? Maybe one of these…
Red Fishing Houses
Liz and Mike hold adventuring and traveling together high on their #couplesgoals. They live their lives based on unforgettable experiences, not just moments in time. Traveling educates them, opens their minds, and brings them closer together on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Over the years they have allowed their journeys to shape their personalities individually but also continue to keep their relationship new and exciting. One country that they both found themselves always marveling over was Norway. So it was only natural that after Mike proposed they have never-ending lifetime adventures together, they would set out to plan a wedding in Norway.
They contacted us over a year ago to plan their Norway destination wedding. They were hoping to be in the middle of the true essence of Norwegian countryside. So after reviewing some really kickass options we cooked up for them to consider for the Norway wedding, they decided the Geirangerfjord area was the right fit. The fabulous Hotel Alexandra would act as our Norway wedding base.
Have you ever heard of or stayed the Hotel Alexandra in Loen, Norway? You should! I’ve stayed at a lot of a hotels being an Adventure Wedding Planner and Photographer and this hotel has infinite potential for weddings, luxury relaxation, and they are currently constructing a very unique experience at the top of Mount Hoven. They are building a cable car lift system that will take you to the top of the mountain (which was previously only accessed by a very long hard via ferrata hike) for an epic view and 5-star dinning. This experience is set to open in May of 2017, keep your eyes peeled and put it on your Norway wedding or honeymoon bucket list!
Back to Liz + Mike and their gorgeously sweet details… Can I get a little swoon swoon over the vow books, Norway wedding dress, the boots, ring box, and the bouquet?!
As unique as Mike and Liz’s relationship is, they wanted to hold a ceremony that brought in those elements and also interacted with their guests who travelled so many miles in from California. The Norway wedding ceremony began with the bride and groom parting ways at a beautiful inlet from the nearby fjord, the groom walked over a sweet little bridge and the bride made her grand entrance down a gorgeous red carpet.
The Norway wedding celebrant began the ceremony by inviting each of the guests to hold the bride and grooms wedding rings in an intimate ring warming ceremony. While holding the rings, each guest was asked to think of a positive wish for the bride and groom. It was beautiful.
Once the wedding ceremony in Norway concluded the day adventure began… Our first stop was to a secret fjord beach and then onto oh-so many more amazing stops (which stay tuned next week for Part 2 of their amazing Norway wedding adventure, believe me you do not want to miss it!) throughout the famed Geirangerfjord area.
Mike and Liz’s Norway wedding adventure concluded with a Norway wedding reception at Hotel Alexandra with decor inspired by the endless forests of Norway and featured a delicious 3 course traditional meal.
Please stay tuned for next week’s post as we will share the core of their adventure wedding in Norway!

As I’m sure you’ve seen, Iceland is an amazing location to hold your destination wedding, but have you ever considered the islands off of Iceland? The Vestmannaeyjar Islands are comprised of 15 Archipelago Islands that were all born from eruptions. Which means the islands feature sharp and interesting cliff-lines, basalt rock formations, the famed “elephant rock,” quaint fishing villages, and a gorgeous Stave (wooden) Church!
3.) Faroe Islands (Denmark)
What other place has more grass covered houses than anywhere in the world, more sheep than people, jagged cliff edges that will get your heart pumping, hikes that are self-finding, a serenity that you thought only exists in your mind, majestic waterfalls, and a place that still offers a deep and rich culture that mixes the best of the best Nordic worlds of Denmark and Iceland?! Nowhere, Natta, No place but the magnificent… Faroe Islands! I might even dare to say parts of it made me feel like I was exploring Narnia!
