Holly and Colin planned a once-in-a-lifetime elopement in Iceland. They brought their closet friends and family with them to share in this special occasion and watch them exchange vows. Holly is originally from the Boston area, and Colin from Ireland, so collectively they have friends from the US and Europe and thought Iceland was a great middle ground for their friends to attend (and because Iceland is incredibly gorgeous and magical, duh!). The weather was perfectly sunny for their elopement, which is very lucky considering how quickly the weather changes in Iceland, especially in the winter. Don't get me wrong, it was cold, but with the help of the sun shining it wasn't all too bad!
The two traveled from their home in NYC, to the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. We met the couple at their Reykjavik hotel and followed their party the hour and a half drive into the country to a secret waterfall where they had the most magical ceremony. After a quick first look, the two happily skipped to their ceremony spot to the sounds of "Ophelia" by the Lumineers. Their family and friends surrounded them as they spoke their personal vows to each other. After the ceremony everybody celebrated with some champagne and craft beer near the waterfall.
Their next stop was the famous Black Sand Beach where the couple explored the beach caves and climbed upon the iconic Iceland rock formations. The two had a blast celebrating and frolicking along the black sand. It was truly a magical day, one that we were so happy to a part of. Our hearts are full knowing these two will forever have their wedding film to re-watch for the rest of their lives to take them back to that incredible place where they became husband and wife.
