Being in the great outdoors exploring new places together is exactly where adventurous couples want to be. Especially when they are ready to embark on their wilderness honeymoon. Likewise, on their agendas is experiencing places that are offbeat or off the grid too. Why? Because they crave experiences not many get the chance to do! After all, the focus is on collecting unforgettable memories and not things!!
Likely, you remember Molly & Brendon from their brave elopement featured on our Iceland Wedding Planner blog last week. Well, they loved the unique schedules we pitched so much they couldn’t narrow to just one! Therefore, they decided to book two days with us so they didn’t have choose. So before embarking on their self-drive Iceland honeymoon adventure they went on one more adventure with us…
In fact, the plan was to head into a very tricky glacier outlet area few have ever been that is currently home to an incredible ice cave. However, days before our arrival (and after we scouted) there was an avalanche which covered the ice cave opening which made the area extremely unstable. Therefore, we “plan b’d” to some wonderful alternative Iceland wedding locations! To illustrate, the views into the highlands were picturesque with all of the snow that stuck around!
After an exciting hike it was time for part two of their wilderness honeymoon session to begin… The hike to a a luxury picnic! Although it started raining, we picked a spot in a canyon next to a small waterfall and made it cozy!! Inclusions to the honeymoon picnic were as follows: Pommery Champagne, Icelandic cheeseboard, fruit, kleina (donuts), cinnamon buns, and macaroons.
Further, lots of romantically styled details also followed like a firepit, basket, blankets, and pillows! Who wouldn’t want this posh display waiting for them after a hike?! #dreamcometrue! And truly a perfect way to kick off their Iceland honeymoon!
