“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” ―Anita Desai
This quote very time I read it gives me goosebumps and after I read it, Crystal and Devin’s wedding day instantly comes to mind. Why?
The love they exude.
Their endless addiction to adventure.
Their wedding ceremony.
The ever-changing Icelandic weather.
Every single element of the day impacted them (and their guests). The epic moments throughout their journey will forever be in their hearts for the rest of their lives. Iceland is apart of them and their love story.
These two Florida natives found themselves searching for a unique awe-inspiring wedding location that would break the mold of the traditional American “destination wedding” experience. I know this is how the majority of our offbeat couples find us, but this was even more critical than usual, because Devin is a fellow destination wedding industry entrepreneur (check out Swag Decor).
After indulging in photos of glaciers, volcanos, black sand beaches, hidden caves, secret waterfalls, and the greenest mountains on the planet, Devin and Crystal quickly found themselves obsessed with Iceland. It was the answer. So please follow us along today as we experience their incredible Iceland adventure wedding! Then also head over to the awesome POPSUGAR / MSN to see more from their amazing day!
With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Iceland Adventure Wedding Planners)

Serious kudos goes out to the fabulous Vault of Wonder on Etsy who created my personal and all time favorite ring box EVER, below:
I love when the bride and groom write love letters or exchange Iceland wedding day gifts before seeing each other!
Crystal’s Iceland wedding bouquet is one of my favorites because she had it made of maps of all of the areas they have explored together!
Before sunrise and we all loaded into super jeeps for the day, Crystal and Devin shared a private “first look” at the hotel.
Then we were on our way to a private side of a glacier for their unforgettable Iceland wedding ceremony!
Crossing rivers whether it be in a super jeep, by foot, or dodging glacier quicksand, our couples are the coolest! Crystal and Devin were fearless!
The private glacier area our Iceland wedding planning team has access to, was super moody looking that gorgeous fall morning!
There are many amazing celebrants to choose from for your Iceland wedding ceremony. In the end, Crystal and Devin chose to go the old-world Norse route and have a Asatru wedding ceremony.
It was surreal seeing these two profess their love to each other at the base of this amazing glacier side!
…and who doesn’t want to share their first drink from a horn during their Iceland wedding ceremony?!
Have you seen greener mountains for a wedding in Iceland?
Ughh, so moody and dramatic!! …an Iceland wedding photographers DREAM come true!
The shapes of the Icelandic mountains still be-still my heart years later!
Pit Stop!! Lunch in a private cave… A traditional Icelandic BBQ of Hot Dogs!
After lunch it was onto secret waterfall hunting during Crystal and Devin’s Iceland wedding day!
The variety of Iceland wedding locations during their adventure was stunning!!
More often than not, you only run into sheep during our Iceland wedding days…
Sunset on a black sand beach! Reynisfjara is not one of our usual stops for our Iceland adventure weddings, but we are happy to oblige if a couple has it on their “must have” list.
Oh la la THAT LOVE!
Ha, typical Iceland depicted here… Downpour of rain and sun at the same time!
Misty secret canyons… a fave for Iceland wedding photos!
After relaxing and refreshing guests enjoyed a delicious meal at Hotel Ranga during Crystal and Devin’s Iceland wedding reception!
How sweet are these Iceland wedding favors?
Closing out their adventure wedding in Iceland Crystal and Devin attempted to launch chinese lanterns as a send off… Sadly the wind decided we go with “plan b!”
I always seem to have sparklers in my Iceland wedding planner “go” bag =)
