“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.”
Meeting Davíð Geir Jónasson, changed the course of my life forever.
Do you remember how we met? In that moment, as clique as I know it sounds, I knew my life wouldn’t be the same again. Seriously, in all of the millions of people I have met, never have I ever met someone like Davíð. He looks at me the way all women want (and deserves) to be looked at by a partner. I’ve never laughed harder, never travelled farther around the world with anyone and still left smiling by the end of it. To put it raw and frankly, I’m addicted to him. His energy, book to street smarts, risky wit, infinite positivity and the way he brings out the best in everyone he encounters. He adventures at the same level as me (some might even say higher and I might agree).
So where does an Adventure Wedding Planner / Photographer and a Filmmaker get married? Well… We eloped in the Lofoten Islands (Northern Norway). Have you ever heard of these islands before? If not, go HERE and read up on them!
The shapes, the tones, the textures of the vivid mountains of the Lofoten Islands cannot be found anywhere else in the world. They come chock full of mystery and unforgettable romance. So come along with me today as I, my super talented friend (and colleague) Jean Smith and her brilliant cinematographer husband Travis Smith share with you the unbelievable documentation from our Lofoten Islands wedding day.
With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Lofoten Islands Norway Wedding Planners)

Once upon a time… Or to my extreme sports enthusiasts out there: “Oh shit there I was…”
I was the Iceland Wedding Planner and Photographer for a super cool couple from Chicago, Illinois. It was raining that day in Iceland, so we executed our “Plan B” ceremony location, my favorite cave. However, when we arrived we were greeted by a 200 person film crew for a upcoming Bollywood movie. They were there with the famed actor’s, food trucks, gear trucks, and tons of porta potties.
I’ll be honest, seeing that many people there, I panicked slightly. Not because I wouldn’t be able to use the location (which never happens because we always get private permission and permits) but rather, I was thinking how off schedule this could potentially make our day (excuse the OCD part of me, lol)! The couple had no idea that anything was out of the ordinary as I jumped out of the jeep and darted to the group to have a chat. An easy 5 minutes later the entire crew was gone
Fast forward 12 hours and I was back at the hotel finishing up the table styling for the couples dreamy reception for two. I grabbed a glass of wine and my computer to catch up on emails and sat down in the hotel lobby… Completely enamored in my work I do not look up when I hear a man’s voice say, “Are you that 5 foot 3 inch wedding planner that kicked our entire crew out of the cave earlier today?” I laughed and leaned around my computer to see who was so witty. To my pleasant surprise, a 6 foot 7 inch Icelandic Adonis was speaking to me. My jaw dropped and that giddy smile still hasn’t left my face!
That night, I met a man who lives and breathes adventure just as I do (maybe even more) personally and professionally. Allow me to introduce you to Davíð… He creates special effects for all of the big movies that come here to Iceland (you know like Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Noah, the list is endless) and has the incredible hobby of being on Iceland’s SAR team (Search and Rescue). ….yeah swoon swoon, right?! From that moment on, we found ourselves inseparable.
Our third date was a 7 day adventure to Isle of Skye, where we went coasteering, hiked epic cliff lines, dined at small little cafes, and discovered super secret locales!
He didn’t even bat an eyelash when I suggested we spend a month in South America! Where we ventured through Chilean wine country, Rainforests, through epic fjords, and made our way down to the famed awe inspiring region of Patagonia!
Since Davíð and I met at the “top of the world” we thought it would be fun for us to ring in the New Year together at the bottom of the world in Ushuaia Argentina!
We spent several days camping (um yeah the only man on the planet that can get me to camp in a tent) and hiking the famed “W Trek” in the Torres Del Paine National Park. Complete with glaciers, granite towers, and moments of mountaineering!
One of the most magical set of days we spent together was within the Los Glaciares National Parkwhere we explored the Perito Moreno Glacier and the Fitz Roy Mountains!
One of my favorite hikes we have done together was in Norway doing the hike to Trolltunga. Have you ever been to Norway?
Back to the exciting news…
After exploring 7 countries; 40 cities; and over 30,000 miles together, I proposed! …and he said Yes!
…and we are planning a wedding in the Lofoten Islands for September 14-19th!
But that’s not all of the exciting news we have to share with you… There’s more! We are also extremely happy to announce that we will be adding a new items to our menu of services… Drone Photography and Video for your amazing Iceland Weddings + Adventure Weddings beyond!
Are you excited?! We are too!
