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!

Adventure was born and lives in Patagonia, no joke folks! Specifically, it resides in the Torres del Paine National Park. Have no idea where that is? Picture: South America, then find your way to Chile, and then down the Andes Mountains to the most southern section of Chile and Argentina… Then you’ll find yourself in the formal region of Chilean Patagonia in the midst of the Torres del Paine Park!
Once in the Torres del Paine National Park, you’ll find something totally intoxicating and borderline addicting about seeing the different angles of those famed granite “W” mountain peaks, the mysterious Grey Glacier, and the wild feeling of freedom that fills this park. Not to mention the endless amounts of wildlife like, Guanacos (alpacas), Ostriches, Flamingos, Pumas, Foxes, Armadillo, and Condors flying around which all help add to the enchantment.
The moment we arrived at one of the park entrances, we were greeted by a gorgeous guanaco and boy was he playful as you’ll see below!
The entire park is weaved together by gravel roads which adds to the charm as the wind blows the dust around. Adventure junkies from around the world come to cross off their bucket lists the the challenging 3, 7, or 10 day trek around the Torres del Paine National Park.
The main areas that make up the “W” mountain hiking trip are as follows: Glacier Grey, The French Valley, and the Base of the Torres (the 3 towers) overlooking the stunning Torres Lagoon.
So but of course adventurous couples from around the world should also find their way here, to hold an incredible Patagonian Destination Wedding, Whimsical Elopement in Patagonia, or have their unforgettable Honeymoon in Patagonia! I mean because how fun would it be to get married atop of the ridges with these famed Chilean Patagonia mountains as your backdrop?
Patagonia Weddings are ideal for you extreme sports enthusiasts or avid travelers! You can camp your way through it or go the luxury route and stay in hotels and/or refugios and we are thrilled to help you decide which would be ideal for you, please contact us for more information!
I’m a glacier lover personally, so give me some crampons, ice, and gorgeous view and I’ll be set for the day =) One of my favorite things about Patagonia’s Torres del Paine Grey Glacier is the opportunities to experience the glacier on many levels. You have the glorious option of taking a boat ride to skim the edges (for you lower intensity adventure seekers), if you’re a middle of the road adventure seeker than there is a fantastic hike you can do to get to the viewing point you’ll see below. There you will see the glacier, beautiful mountains, and the glacier lagoon with pieces of ice that have broken off from the glacier. For you high intensity adventure wedding seekers, there is two more opportunities for you… Kayaking around and then climbing onto the Grey Glacier. Exciting stuff, right?!
Further into the park you’ll find a few secret waterfalls with incredible 360 views attached to them! Incredible dynamic area… One of my favorites to hold your epic wedding in Patagonia!
Patagonia Wedding Locations can actually come with some really amazing historical elements too believe it or not! Like holding your Patagonia destination wedding or elopement in a cave where the incredible creature once lived 10,000 years ago! Dreamy!
The list of Patagonia wedding locations within the Torres del Paine are endless for you adventure seekers. So I invite you to enjoy the rest of these stunning Patagonia Wedding location images! They are just a few we are publicly sharing, we have many more stunning secret wedding locations. So please contact us if you’re interested in planning a Patagonian Destination Wedding or running away to elope in Patagonia! We’d love to hear from you, contact us!
