Calling all lovers with a taste for adventure! I’ve got the inside scoop on Kris & Ilya’s unforgettable elopement in Iceland. This love story is anything but ordinary (unless your grandma’s idea of a good time includes a bit of wildness, then maybe it is). After saying their “I do’s” in Copenhagen’s cozy corners, these two love warriors took their romance to the rugged terrains of Iceland for an elopement that’s straight out of a storybook. From daring dips under icy waterfalls to unexpected speeding tickets, this journey was packed with moments that’ll have you itching to explore. So, get comfy, grab your favorite drink, and let’s dive into this adventure.

Our adventure began with a touchdown in Reykjavík, a quick car rental, and a beeline to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The night was creeping in, hiding Iceland’s stunning views, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. After a pit stop in Arnarstapi for some tasty vegan burgers, we called it a night, ready for what lay ahead.

As dawn broke, we were off to the Stone Bridge, greeted by the first light and breathtaking mountain vistas. Kris and Ilya, unfazed by the chilly winds, were all in, soaking up every second.

Our day was filled with exploring, from the peninsula’s edges to hidden beaches where Ilya learned the hard way that the ocean plays by its own rules, ending up with a pair of soaked shoes. And, let’s just say, a brisk waterfall shower is an experience of its own.

Our journey wrapped up with a visit to Kirkjufell, which, to be honest, didn’t quite live up to the hype for us. But that’s the beauty of adventure – it’s full of highs and lows. A speeding ticket on our way back added an unexpected twist to our tale, but it’s all part of the story now.

On our last day, we discovered a secluded hot spring, a hidden treasure that offered a peaceful finale to our whirlwind trip. As the sun rose, Kris and Ilya shared a moment of pure connection, a beautiful close to their elopement.

But there’s more to Kris and Ilya’s story than just breathtaking landscapes. Their elopement was also a celebration of their rich cultural backgrounds, blending traditions from the Philippines and Kazakhstan into their Icelandic adventure. Wearing a traditional Philippine barong and Taqiyah caps, they brought pieces of their heritage to the vast beauty of Iceland, making their elopement not just a journey of love but a heartfelt nod to their roots.

Kris and Ilya’s elopement wasn’t just an adventure through Iceland; it was a journey through their love, cultures, and the wild paths they chose to walk together.
