adventurous elopement in iceland

From Your Adventure Wedding “Rachel and John are adventurers who are travel obsessed.  They had been to Iceland previously and were dying to go back to explore even more for their elopement wedding!

They found themselves enamored with a huge natural cave in the South of Iceland and were excited to have their wedding ceremony there. Following that they embarked on an adventurous elopement via super jeep (custom 6-door Land Rover) exploring private waterfalls, hidden canyons, cliffs that had views for days, and secret beaches. They ended they day with a beautifully styled reception for two!”

THE PROPOSAL

From the bride, Rachel – “About 2 weeks before our first trip to Iceland we were getting ready for dinner. I was finishing up with my makeup and John was downstairs in the kitchen pacing around (typical for him because he hates being late for anything!). When I finally got downstairs he was standing in the kitchen and there was a vase on the table full of crinkled up pieces of paper.

To be honest, I didn’t even notice it. Until he asked me to read one- of course it said ‘Will you marry me?’ on all 100 pieces of paper in there. When I turned around he was on one knee. It was perfect. We didn’t tell a soul for hours! Just kept it our little thing for as long as we could. Two weeks later- we were in Iceland and met Ann (who later planned our elopement for us too!)”

FAVORITE MEMORIES

“I have this theory in life (how ever crazy it may be) that every important moment in my life a Coldplay song is playing. Which is ridiculous because they are just extremely popular and on the radio a lot. But regardless I fully believe it. As we were in our incredible super jeep in this beautiful canyon after just saying ‘I do’ in a romantic cave I could not stop smiling. Just then- our jeep driver turned the radio up and Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay was playing. Just picture it: surrounded by some of the most incredible sights you have ever seen, the love of you life next to you and that song coming on. It was MAGIC!”
