It all made my cheeks hurt from SMILING so much!
Jodi and Patrick met each other 35 years ago in college and had a “love at first sight” moment. In the words of the bride, “After that brief but powerful initial encounter, we each went our own ways, not knowing that we each felt like we had met the love of our lives, and lost track of each other for 30 years.”
Finally, 7 years ago they found themselves reconnecting from across the USA and finally spilled the beans about how they felt about each other decades ago. Hit the fast forward button and they make a home in NYC then find themselves seeking a unique way to elope… An adventure wedding in Iceland followed by a honeymoon which would explore the entire island was what called to both of their souls!
So come with us today as we relive their EPIC adventurous elopement in Iceland! Side Note: Their fabulous Iceland elopement was recently featured on Offbeat Bride, check out more of their amazing love story HERE!
The action packed Iceland wedding day began at 5:30am at Hotel Grimsborgir with hair, makeup, and an exciting first look!
Jodi’s Iceland wedding bouquet was one of my all time favorites!
Ugh, and Jodi’s STUNNING Iceland wedding dress was brilliant! I love princess gowns like this that blow so beautifully around in the Icelandic wind!
…and what adventure bride would be complete without waterproof rain boots?! Jodi’s something “blue” were these beauties!
Patrick was head to toe handsome with his awesome gray suit! I love gray Iceland wedding suits on our grooms!
And what adventurous groom would be without his hiking boots on his Iceland wedding day?!
Our Iceland wedding hair and makeup stylist hooked Jodi up with the perfect windproof styles!
Then our amazing super jeep team took them to their beautiful lakeside ceremony spot where after exploring commenced!
After their Iceland wedding ceremony, they had so much fun exploring the area!
A luxury picnic lunch on a private black sand beach is the BEST way to celebrate your elopement in Iceland!
Our next stop during Jodi and Patrick’s luxury elopement in Iceland had views for days…
Not to mention that the Iceland wedding photographer (Ann Peters) was also in a harness tethered to a rope tied to the super jeep to get the next few amazing shots! True adventure wedding photographer style 😉
Private geothermal areas are my new favorite spot!
The sun and these amazing golden cliffs for Jodi and Patrick’s amazing Iceland wedding photos!
