Lofoten Islands Wedding Adventure in Norway

“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.”

-Paulo Coelho

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)

Adventure Weddings: 2016 Year End Review

 

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)

Norway Elopement at the Dalen Fairytale Hotel (Part 1)

 

When two extremely adventurous people meet while out on a daring expedition, only good things come from it.  Consequences of such meetings usually include endless laughs, incredible moments in time, and smiles that make your cheeks hurt.  And if you’re tremendously lucky, you walk away with a new forever friend.  Fortunately, in the story of Danielle and Shea not only are all the above true, but they also found their soulmates in each other.  These two met while hiking in Nepal.  Seriously!  …and they both just happened to be living in the same area of Australia!  Mean to be, right?!

 

So naturally after they had more journeys exploring the world together, they were searching for astounding elopement locations and a way to elope that would be very different than the typical avenues.  Danielle and Shea first reached out to us inquiring about an elopement in Iceland on Iceland Wedding Planner.  Shortly after we met on Skype and seeing we own Your Adventure Wedding, they were hooked on the adventure wedding concept we provide.  Torn between having a wedding in Iceland or Norway was tough but in the end, Norway won.  They fell in love with the Dalen Fairytale Hotel option we created for their elopement in Norway.

norway-elopement-photographer-your-adventure-wedding

Have you ever seen or been to the Dalen Fairytale Hotel?  It’s one of the oldest, fanciest, charming, and most notable hotels in Norway.  A place where Kings and Queens choose to stay at frequently.  The first time I visited years ago and pulled up to the front of the hotel I immediately felt like I was walking into a storybook.  As you’ll see from the Norway wedding photos below, it’s a very vivid and intoxicating place that sits along the historic Telemark Canal fjord.

norway-wedding-at-dalen-fairytale-hotel-your-adventure-wedding

There are too many beautiful images I want to share with you from their 10+ locations we ventured to throughout their adventure wedding in Norway, so you’ll be happy to know I’m splitting their fabulous day into 2 posts.  This week we will feature all the awesomeness we created in and around the Dalen Hotel, their Stave Church Norway wedding ceremony and a another secret spot.  Next week, stay tuned for the bulk of Shea and Danielle’s Norway wedding adventure photos where we discover more secret waterfalls, a cave, and take an adventure in a riverboat down a beautiful historical canal!
