1St Anniversary and Portrait Photos

May 18th was our 1-year anniversary and by coincidence we got our portrait session photos back! As we couldn't really celebrate right now, it was a pleasant surprise and the best gift we can receive.

Originally we only wanted candid photos of our wedding but agreed to sit through a portrait session to satisfy our Asian parents. Due to recent events, it took more than 5 months to get the photos back. Seeing the photos reminded me of all the happy moments a year ago, and it is hard to believe life has changed so much in so short a time. But I guess here's life's message to me to remember all the nice little things and believe things will always get better.

    I loved Iceland and highly recommend it to anyone! We had a little less of 2 weeks and it was the start of the winter season there, so we were able to tour only half of the island. I would definitely go back again. Most of the attractions of Iceland are basically along the coastal highway, and people do a around the island road trip. We did a half trip covering the Southern Coast and West Peninsula.

    All hotels we stayed at were great, very notable ones include Hotel Kria in Vik, Hotel Laki in Efri-Vik, Icelandair Hotel Hamar in Borgarnes and Harbour View Cottage in Grindavik. There are also a few that my friends went to, and I couldn't book because of how popular they are: ION Adventure Hotel, Frost and Fire Hotel... Iceland literally has countless beautiful and romantic hotels.

    Attraction-wise we only covered half of them, and decided to go to

    1)Reykjavik: the capital and most likely where you land;

    2) Golden Circle: with geyser and golden waterfall etc. (some people say it's similar to Yellow Stone and was not so awed; I've never been to Yellow Stone and liked it, and it's so close to Reykjavik and easy to fit into your itinerary.

    3) Lots of other waterfalls along the way: there are so many in Iceland, I recommend looking up photos and pick out a few that you like. They are all different from each other, but I find it a bit tiring looking at too many waterfalls all the time.

    4) Black beach: great spot for photos;

    5) The 2 glacier lagoons (Jokulsarlon): highly recommend

    6) Nearby "diamond beach": another great spot for pictures

    7) Moss: Icelandic mosses are very pretty but also very delicate. There is a spot between Vik and Reykjavik where you can observe them very closely without stepping on them. It is along the highway, and I don't think it has a name.

    8) Snæfellsjökull or the West Peninsula: it's like a mini Iceland with volcano, cliffs, waterfall, glacier, and some very nice f-road (if you like f-road driving).

    There're 2 popular destinations that we skipped:

    1) airplane beach: the weather was very nasty and we didn't see the point of walking all that distance to see the remains of a plane

    2) Blue Lagoon: too expensive to fit in our budget

    Thanks! My wedding dress for my "real" wedding was too big to take, and I was worried about tearing it or something because of the Icelandic weather. So I took a "normal" gown and a blue dress that I later wore for our Asian wedding/family dinner.

    That's awesome. I actually bought a boho inspired dress that could be a really casual wedding dress or a vacation dress so we could possibly do something like this. It was pretty inexpensive so I don't need to worry as much about damaging it. I love this idea!

    Wow that sounds amazing, please share your experience and photos afterwards. It also exactly my thought to bring inexpensive dress so I can take the worry away from my mind.
