1.) Patagonia – Torres del Paine National Park (Chile)
Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, is where the mysterious and intriguing “W” trek of the Andes mountains live and breathe. This area also has numerous lakes, glaciers, granite towers, caves, wildlife (Guanacos, Ostriches, Flamingos, Pumas, Foxes, Armadillo, and Condors flying around) endless mountain views, and so many unique experiences to be had!
2.) Vestmannaeyjar Islands (Iceland)
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!
4.) Lofton Islands (Norway)
The Lofoten Islands is a place where heaven and earth meet! What better place to hold an enticing elopement or intimate Norway wedding adventure than on the top of a mountain with stunning fjords behind?! During your wedding day in Norway’s Lofoten Islands, (once you pick up your jaw off the ground) you’ll become one with the sea and the mountains!
5.) Ushuaia, Argentina (the most Southern city in the world)
For you adventure seekers that love to hike and explore, there are endless options for you in Ushuaia! There are short 30 minute to longer 2+ hour hikes within the Tierra del Fuego National Park that will allow you to experience the most Southern tip of the Andes Mountains and the famed Beagle Channel. …plus several stunning secret spots!
6.) Madagascar (Africa)
Madagascar is a magical island off of the coast of Africa. There you’ll find the famed Isalo National Park, unforgettable mountains, wild adventures, hikes, waterfalls, crystal clear blue-green water, unique tree’s, plants and animals you have never seen before. It’s the essence of an adventure wedding location, undiscovered! Be one of the first couples to hold your unforgettable destination wedding in Madagascar, I dare you!
7.) Morocco (Africa)
Morocco is one of my favorite countries because it houses the highest peak in Africa named, Toubakal which stands higher than 13,000 feet! Would you dare to wed at the top? We’d be right there with you photographing! Oh so, many options to choose from like the Mediterranean Coast, the Sahara Desert. Draa Valley, the Rif & Atlas Mountains, and our endless secret locations!
8.) The Baltic Countries
There are 3 gorgeous hidden gems of states tucked within the beautiful Baltic Sea. Estonia! Latvia! Lithuania! All should be on your adventure wedding list, because they are full of rich culture, eco-friendly, one of the world’s greenest countries, has an endless list of romantic adventures for couples, beautiful pristine beaches, it’s also a country filled with art, wooden architecture, castles and manor houses!
9.) Peru (South America)
The Peruvian culture is vivid, rich in tradition, and one of the friendliest I have encountered throughout my worldwide travels. The country is full of ancient ruins, the Amazon River, marvelous Andes mountains, and countless adrenaline junkie sports just waiting for you to partake in!
10.) Illulisat, Greenland (Denmark)
This Nordic wedding location is for couples who are truly fearless explorers at heart, cold weather lovers, and have an unquenchable curiosity! Is this you? If so, you can look forward to having a destination wedding or romantic elopement in one of the most mysterious places in the world (it’s been said to be in the top 10)!

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!
