This viking elopement inspiration is all about untamed beauty on the coast

We love a good viking wedding and this viking wedding inspiration was more wild and untamed than we'd ever seen. It's adventurous, romantic, and seriously inspiring if you're planning one of your own. Set on the beautiful Oregon coast and inspired by Nordic traditions, they rocked bold blues, silvers, and greens to match the atmosphere. There are two different looks to see, both separate love stories in themselves. Don't miss the era-inspired weaponry, the gorgeous geode cake, the cave-dotted landscape, the custom-made gowns, and the chill-inducing florals. I can almost hear the battle cries now…

Destination wedding goals: a gorgeous Norse cave wedding in Iceland

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.
