Ellis + Kristen // Iceland Destination Wedding

With marriage being one of life’s greatest adventures, why not make your wedding one of your life’s greatest adventures?

I imagine this is what went through Kristen and Ellis’ head thinking ahead to this day. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. Let’s rewind to the backstory.

Ellis and Kristen had been friends for a little while through work and mutual friends. Kristen has always wanted to backpack up to Everest Base Camp in Nepal and Ellis mentioned wanting to go as well. As this dream turned into concrete plans, the plans turned into first dates of training for the climb. Nothing was official in their relationship until after their trip when Ellis asked if they should date. I’m assuming that a few other events likely happened in between, but now our story resumes here. In Iceland. With nearly 30 of Kristen and Ellis’ favorite humans.

This whole wedding trip was so personalized and unique to Ellis and Kristen and their desire to spend purposeful time with friends and family. We were able to take several day trips as a group, go hiking, swimming, having a great dip off (who could make the best dip), worshiping together at our nice cottage, exploring Reykjavik, and chasing waterfalls. This three day wedding adventure was concluded with a nice dinner at the harbor.

All this feels like a wonderful reunion. Spending so much quality time with these people made these old and new friends feel like family. So happy for these sweet newlyweds. Words and photos can’t capture all of the beauty of God’s creation and His workings in the lives of these two, but it can show a whole lot of the magic. And that’s enough for me.

Here we go.

Bethany & Joshua at Pangburn Wedding Barn

These two are the real deal. Bethany was a part of my first post-college friend group and has always been a wonderful and encouraging friend. I met Joshua a bit later, but he’s always been kind and compassionate, equally grounded and focused on his goals and in the Lord. Bethany and Josh are both incredibly talented artists as well, and this was represented quite well through the wedding decor and small touches.

I’m looking forward to seeing where life leads these two friends. I’m sure it will be filled with many adventures. :) Congratulations Bethany & Josh!
