A rainy & majestic elopement to Iceland (with a neoprene dress!)

In terms of scenery, I will admit to having a bit of a penchant for these majestic Iceland destination weddings. They’re just SO breathtaking. And Biheng and Mark’s elopement to Iceland all the way from Australia lived up to all of our expectations. it was cool and rainy and totally atmospheric.
