Iceland Elopement at Hotel Budir

After conquering over 35 countries, having countless adventures together, and an EPIC proposal in South Africa, where in the world do you plan your destination wedding?  This was the dilemma Stacey and Aaron were faced with… They were seeking a place and a landscape that would be nothing like they have ever seen before.  Having a Iceland elopement in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, was their answer.

Although these two had been to Iceland once before, they were called back to this magical landscape to have their dreamy Iceland elopement!  Iceland is one of those countries that you can continuously visit and never see the same thing twice, forever!  Seriously folks, I live here and I am still adventuring to new places each day/week!

This winter has been one of the mildest on record for decades.  Typically in March, we have a lot more snow in the mountains and the ground, but for Stacey and Aaron, this was the PERFECT amount!  So come along with me today to witness their beautiful elopement in Iceland!

There are many secret places within the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to escape away from tourists… We took a little trip to one of my favorite secret waterfalls for a fun little adventure crossing rivers and such!

As if their day was not adventurous enough, these two opted in on my suggestion of heading down inside of a 8,000 year old lava tube to explore it!  Special Note:  All of these images were taken in 100% darkness!  How cool, right?!
