Alissa and Steve’s Fagradalsfjall elopement was an adventure like no other.

A Decade of Adventures Inspired Their One-of-a-Kind Fagradalsfjall Elopement

We went on adventures together for more than ten years, so we wanted our wedding to match our relationship. We started dating when we were both 18 and got married at 29. In those years, we did a lot together and wanted our wedding to be like that. We wanted our wedding to show who we are as a couple, and we managed to do that. Every aspect of the day was memorable in its own way. We had always planned to get married in Iceland. We fell in love with the country back when he visited in 2019. However, having an erupting volcano alongside us the entire day was definitely something we will never forget.
