Vanna & Kevin’s elopement day didn’t go exactly as planned. Their elopement photographer and local expert Steph had helped them to plan an itinerary travelling east along the south coast of Iceland. However, on the morning of their elopement, the weather forecast changed dramatically. A blizzard coming from the east was on the way, which meant road closures were almost certain.

But like something from a Hollywood blockbuster movie, the storm was close on their tails as they drove to a potential new ceremony location.
