Hvalfjörður Engagement // Elen & Jody

Hvalfjörður Engagement // Elen & Jody

It was a dark and moody winter’s day when we set out to explore the forgotten fjord, Hvalfjörður, with Elen & Jody. On the short journey from Reykjavík we drove through pouring rain and strong gusts of wind but when we reached our destination in the valley at the bottom of the fjord the wind died down and the rain turned into a drizzle.

Beau and Erica came all the way to Iceland after years of marriage and a few kids, from Ohio to renew their vows under a waterfall in gale force winds. Iceland in the fall has some of the prettiest weather but also some of the craziest so there is no way of knowing what you are going to get.

"Should we just take off and get married in the middle of nowhere in Iceland" was a joke passed around between Pirmin and Sofia while planning their more traditional wedding in Finland.

Conor & Katelyn decided to go on a little adventure with us while traveling in Iceland all the way from the States last fall. They braved the Icelandic wind with us for a few hours while we explored the rugged landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula.

Sometimes when you take big risks you get great rewards. Planning an outdoor wedding in Iceland in November is a big risk. Hurricane force winds, sleet, snow, rain, frost or all of the above are just a few of the things that might make standing outside in a wedding dress a bit unpleasant.

Trees are hard to find in Iceland and there is this ongoing joke here that if you get lost in an Icelandic forrest the only thing you have to do is stand up. But there is a spot in the far east that has a decent amount of trees, so decent in fact that you might even call it a forrest, Hallormsstaðaskógur to be exact.

We got to take part in this beautiful autumn wedding last month. It was a beautiful day, with beautiful weather, a beautiful couple, a beautiful church and beautiful light, in short almost perfect, except for the near freezing temperatures.
