“Climb mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
Photographing Fall weddings in Iceland are hands down my favorite. September often ushers in brisker temperatures and Northern Lights. While the land stays green until mid October as the bushes and ground cover transition to shades of red, orange, and yellow. As if it was possible, the landscapes somehow become more alive. Fall is an incredible time to hold your Iceland wedding day or have Iceland wedding photos taken!
Kristi and Luke reached out to us over 19 months before their desired Iceland wedding date seeking a unique destination wedding experience for them and their 40+ Iceland wedding guests. Their fab wedding was also featured on one of my favorite blogs: Jet Fete, go them out for some more photos! In the meantime I hope you’re excited to tag along with us today and experience their Iceland wedding day!

After careful consideration, Kristi and Luke decided on the ION Adventure Hotel as their Iceland wedding host hotel.
How pretty are their Iceland wedding timeline cards?
…and THESE Iceland wedding welcome bags?!
When Kristi and Luke originally reached out to us, they felt a connection to having their Iceland wedding ceremony at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. A Note to You, the Reader: Since I began my business here in 2012, the amount of tourism has exponentially increased (more than doubled every year) and Seljalandsfoss no longer exudes privacy or intimacy for a wedding ceremony. That said, after reviewing some other secret waterfalls we presented, Kristi + Luke fell in love with this intricate gem to start their Iceland wedding day!
Ugh! These TWO! And their little looks at each other throughout their Iceland wedding day kept me swooning!
Still wanting their guests to experience the incredible beauty of Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, we had a quick stop for a glass of champagne to toast the newlyweds on their Iceland wedding day!
Iceland Wedding Planner does not typically go to the iconic natural wonder landmarks (we rather keep to our secret/private locations), but at a client’s request we happily include. Because where else in the world do you have the chance to experience dynamic beaches like this?! Reynisfjara, you never disappoint!
These textures and these tones… Incredible for Iceland wedding photos!
Kristi, Luke, and their wedding guests were game for a fun little hike into a secret little canyon waterfall! …they encountered some of the locals on the trail 😉
Taking your guests from being part of just your “wedding day” to crafting a unique adventure, that they will always remember as an EXPERIENCE is a very powerful dynamic of having a wedding in Iceland!
Pssssst!! Did you know there are countless waterfalls you can walk behind in Iceland?
Sod covered houses and kisses… Their first date as newlyweds! Love it!
Lava Fields + Love…. Swoon!
Connecting the outside to the inside of your Iceland wedding reception really adds to the experience.
When we started talking Iceland wedding reception decor design, Kristi wanted to have a warm inviting element added. Our creation was this bubble wall that sat directly behind the bride and groom! How fun!
Oh la la and when the bubbles were lit they were GORGEOUS!
Mmmmm…. Iceland wedding FOOD! Yum yum yum!
Kristi and Luke were looking for a unique alternative to having a traditional “guestbook” signing to display at their Iceland wedding reception. This was SUCH a fun option! They took one of our images we’ve shot, enlarged it and had their guests inscribe a memory!
