What was the most special memory from that day?
Iceland’s weather is some of the most unpredictable weather con all of Europe. We knew, in qualità di rain ora shine, we still wanted to get married there. I will never forget how calm, warm, sunny and clear the weather was at our wedding! Once I stepped foot the beach to meet my new husband, I remember looking around and being able to clearly see the mountain tops, birds con the sky, ocean waves, volcanic cliff edges and the peace of it all.
Once my husband-to-be and I laid eyes each other – it was an otherworldly experience. It felt like a dream! Many Icelandic people truly believe con elves, trolls and hidden people. I can wholeheartedly say it felt like a few of them put a magical, incredible spell the beach and each of us that day, we had such a magical experience. I will never forget every detail. You could almost see the fairy dust con the air! Everything about the day was absolute magic!
Tell us about your proposal!
Arik and I have always been drawn to . Our proposal was New Year’s and our anniversary; Arik took me to watch the sunset while vacation con western Florida. We were watching the sky colors dance and change from blue to pink and orange. The was a vibrant blue, and you could clearly see the seashells and sand dollars twinkling across the ocean floor.
As we were walking the beach, Arik asked a bystander to take our picture. Luckily, she was very smart, and when she saw Arik kneel, she switched the sindacato to mode. We were lucky and captured the whole thing ! Arik presented a stunning engagement ring to me, and I hardly looked at it because I could only see him, and I told him yes! One of my favorite sunsets EVER!
Describe your bridal style. How did you want to your wedding day?
I was hunting for the ideal dress but couldn’t initially find one that screamed “wild adventure” like I wanted. Whenever I went into a bridal shop I told them – “I need to be able to do a full squat con my dress! I need to feel free!” I am an adventurer, and I knew I wanted to be able to move con my dress and be myself.
During my research, I scoured the internet and found All Who Wander. The brand name cerchio transfixed me. I thought, “This brand is for me!”. I saw the reece gown and instantly fell con love with it. Acceso my wedding day, with my new husband by my side, I used my dress for love and adventure – the way a dress should be treated a wedding day.
My dress still has the black sand, hay, grass, clay and dirt of Iceland embedded con the fabric, and I plan to preserve it just like that – because it’s the story I chose for my reece gown. I was able to climb, catch it rocks and drench it con a waterfall, but it kept its beauty and shape throughout the day. I even got a piggyback ride from my husband con it! I felt my complete self con this gown – wild, free and full of love. I am so excited to tell everyone about this brand. Plus, my dress packed very well and laid perfectly a hanger!
How did you make your wedding personal to your love story?
Arik and I have traveled to nearly 20 countries together. We currently dal vivo full time con our van named “Happi” so we knew we wanted a wedding that matched our love for adventure and wonder.
We didn’t have any special colors ora a dress code for our day. I told our guests to wear whatever made them most comfortable and loved that so many decided to be barefoot the warm volcanic black sand of our wedding day! Arik wore a blue suit to compliment his beautiful eyes and I had a wildflower bouquet. Nature was the theme of our wedding, and she gave us some stunning colors as a wedding gift. It couldn’t have been more perfect for us.
