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!

So, I get this question a lot, “What is an adventure wedding?”
My Answer: A once in a lifetime experience with all you love on one of the most unforgettable days of your life! Combining a unique intimate adventure, one the most exciting days of your life, in the midst of a new country and culture!
It just makes sense! Your next question: Who should consider an adventure wedding?
It’s been my personal and professional mission to change the way the world thinks about and looks at destination weddings. Our world is transitioning to being seekers of experiences and not things. So weddings are no longer in hometowns and destination weddings no longer equal an all-inclusive resort. Destination weddings, now equal a 16 hour full day adventures in unforgettable locations!
We want every couple who plans a destination wedding or elopement to consider an obscure offbeat location for their wedding day. This may mean your renting super jeeps for your 40+ person guest list and spending the day sightseeing AWAY from typical tourist locations, around super-secret waterfalls, rain forests, caves, glacier lagoons or may mean you go on a 2 hour hike, dog sledding, or ice climbing! It all depends on the adventure level =)
Here at Your Adventure Weddings, we thrive on adventure and love, and have for decades. We take the time to get to know you as a couple, understand your wedding day goals and adventure level, to create personalized unforgettable adventure wedding options throughout the world. So whether you’re planning to elope or bring 50 of your closest friends and family we are excited to help you wed in places like Patagonia, Iceland, Estonia, Antarctica, Morocco, Madagascar, the list is endless and so are the adventures, so come join us! We dare you!
I mean… Wouldn’t you want to say “I do” here?
Sound fun? If so, you can look forward to having an epic destination wedding or romantic elopement in some of the most mysterious places in the world!
I can just see Your Adventure Wedding invitation now… Let’s be unforgettable together, contact us today to learn more!
