Jordan and Alaina, Iceland, Hotel Budir and the Black Church

I mean, where do I even start? Shooting a wedding at the black church in Iceland was simply surreal. Just being in Iceland was surreal. I have traveled many places, and Iceland if the most breathtaking place I have ever visited. Jordan and Alaina could not have chosen a more perfect place to get married. They are also wedding photographers, so it suited them so perfectly to pick such a magical location!

“We wanted to be simple, elegant, a bit untraditional, and timeless and really let our wedding location shine through! We did have pops of color (navy, marsala) to add a bit of drama to our day. Every detail we chose, we chose with Iceland in mind!”

“Our Wedding Day: Wow, where do we even begin. Can everything be our favorite? Haha! The entire trip was mind blowing, it’s hard to choose. Probably our favorite moment on the wedding day was our first look…we had been looking forward to that moment since we started wedding planning! Also, since we didn’t see each other that morning, we were definitely the most anxious and excited to be able to finally see each other. I wasn’t so sure Jordan would cry during our first look (though he assured me he would) so when he turned and the tears began to flow, it was the sweetest and most wonderful moment for me! In a close second would be our ceremony and having our first dance right in the church where we had just exchanged vows. It was so intimate and special for us… and perfect!”

Make sure you check out the incredible Seth Dunlap’s wedding video! It is basically the definition of epic.
