A Beautiful Iceland Wedding for April and Michael
April & Michael
April and Michael had always wanted a private and unique wedding. They both were adventurous and loved to be outdoors with nature. It was quite fitting for this couple that they were able to get married in Iceland! This happened as they eloped during a family vacation and even had their ceremony in a secret location inside Thingvellir National Park.
They hiked up a small hill surrounded by protective, private and majestic basalt cliffs. The scenery surrounding their ceremony was amazing and breath taking. It was a cold and windy day, in true Iceland fashion, but it didn’t stop them from enjoying every second of their dream wedding day.
Cold & Dreamy
After the ceremony, there was a picnic with champagne, Icelandic desserts and chocolate covered strawberries. The weather began to get worst and so the couple decided to move the picnic inside the rental car to finish their lunch and champagne. They headed back to the VRBO house to dry off and relax. The brides dress was put through the ringer but the bride couldn’t be happier! It created lasting memories that they forever treasure. That evening, they went to a place called
FJÖRUBORÐIÐ that served langoustine in the small village of Stokkseyri on the
Southern coast. Views of the dramatic volcanic beach and the water were stunning, even at night! The second day of their excursions, the couple was able to go out to many locations with their photographer to capture more views and photos. They saw stunning landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula including Viking heritage sites, geothermal pools/geysers, lava fields, the
coast, and the Blue Lagoon!
Final words from the beautiful bride: “Iceland is the place to make an elopement your own-
dramatic, romantic, adventurous, quiet, stylish, or expansive.”
Congratulations to April & Michael! What a beautiful day they had!
