Sheena and Todd live in Seattle, but wanted to celebrate their Norse souls in the land of fire and ice by have a Norse cave wedding in Iceland. But they weren't choosing any old location… they surprised their guests with a ceremony in a 4600-year-old lava tube cave! Y'all know we love a cave wedding.

They had an honorary fire, a Norse celebrant, oath rings, a Viking horn, and the groom not only presented the bride with a sword as a gift but also read his vows from it. Sheena read hers from an Emily Dickinson book of poems. After the ceremony, they headed for some portraits on a black sand beach, had a picnic lunch, and admired some waterfalls and lighthouses (the groom's favorite!). They ended the day with an intimate dinner and red velvet cupcakes. It was swoon city, especially if you're into Iceland. Let's take a peek, shall we?
