THAT moment— where the beauty of the surrounding and the “we really just did this” feeling sinks in and turns into an uncontainable laughter. There really is nothing like that mountaintop bliss that comes right after our adventure couples say their vows. Without fail—every time— our couples get contagiously giddy. It’s like it all catches up to them— the magic of expressing their love in the most beautifully wild place—the adventure of it all.
Marcus & Raphaela came from Austria for their secret elopement in the fjords. We started the day in Ålesund at Hotel Brosundet and journeyed through the fjords to one of our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE locations, Geiranger. We couldn’t help but stop along the way to take in the breathtaking view. We entered a somewhat hidden gate and followed a mountain forest path to the place where Marcus & Raphaela would say their vows to each other.
Geiranger, is without question one of the most iconic & beautiful locations in Norway. For this reason, we are so excited to have launched Promise Mountain collections for both private and large elopements inside this gorgeous fjord. Here’s a little recap of the wedding adventure we facilitated for our clients Anthony and Christine who flew in all the way from Asheville, NC!
This past summer, our team had the privilege of hosting California couple, James & Rebeca, for their mountaintop elopement in Stranda, Norway.
Although the air was a bit chillier than the California desert that they came from, the sun was shining and the landscape looked absolutely amazing. A complete setup for a magical wedidng day in the fjords. The entire experience from start to finish was what the story books are made of. The immense joy and love that was felt in the air was pretty incredible to witness. Our team had a blast making this wedding adventure happen for both James & Rebeca!
Thanks to all of our vendors that helped make this day beautiful and amazing. Strandafjellet mountain, Stranda Blomster, Liv Skårbrevik Baking (cake), Anniken from Fri Frisør Ålesund (makeup artist), Caroline Stremic (officiant), and Michaela Potterbaum (photography/planner).

This summer, we had the privilege of launching our very first Promise Mountain Nashville experience deep in the beautiful TN forest, right by one of our favorite waterfalls in the region.
Glenn & Noel were so much fun to photograph! Talk about a dreamy couple from Nashville. Both Glenn & Noel (@wearepieces on IG) are amazing worship leaders so it was only natural to bring a guitar out into the forest for a couple songs before they exchanged their original wedding vows in front of the falls.
One of our favorite elements of the day was the incredible floral arrangements we also got to photograph. Our favorite Nashville florist, Mary Love Richardson of Rosemary & Finch (@maryloverichardson on IG) teamed up with us to make this whole shoot magically come together, the way it did. Mary Love was fantastic to work with and is easily one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Such a blast to collaborate with such talented Nashville creatives such as Mary Love!
We are so excited to introduce Promise Mountain Nashville as an extension of our original collections in Norway. These packages are designed to make room for adventurous souls who might not have the chance to fly to the fjords of Norway but still want to adventure with their loved one into the majestic forests and falls region surrounding Nashville, TN, USA. We also think our US packages are the perfect option for Norwegians & other Europeans who want to escape to the US for an adventure romance package they won't soon forget.
Our Nashville collections offer most of what our Norway collections offer, but with an American twist, working with our favorite Nashville vendors for each collection. Think: a waterfall adventure photography session, a private wedding ceremony or vow-renewal with officiant, a cozy cabin stay in the woods or a getaway in one of Nashville's classy boutique hotels... And so much more. We can't wait to host you and your loved one for the romantic adventure of a lifetime.
This past summer, our team had the privilege of hosting Boston couple, Nancy & Matt, for their mountaintop elopement in Stranda, Norway. The weather was perfect, creating the perfect wedding backdrop in the lush fjords of Norway.
Matt and Nancy started the day off at the lovely Norwegian Cabins complex that we host each of our couples in. The hair and makeup artist, Edil, arrived at the cabins and did a fantastic job working with Nancy to prep her for the wedding. Once everyone was ready to go, we embarked via gondola up Strandafjellet Mountain in Stranda, Norway to one of our favorite mountaintop views in the world. It's here that Nancy & Matt tied the knot during the ceremony with our local wedding officiant Adrian. What an amazing moment it was-- the view wasn't too bad either...
Once the ceremony was over, the newlyweds popped their bottle of champagne, had a toast, cut the cake, and took in their first married moments together. Eventually, we finished out the experience with some photography both on top of the mountain and down in the valley as well. As seen in the photos, their joy was contagious, clearly indicating their love for each other and their excitement to be married. Both Nancy & Matt were an absolute pleasure to work with-- and we wish them the very best in their new marriage together!
Thanks to all of our vendors that helped make this day beautiful and amazing. Norwegian Cabins, Strandafjellet mountain, Stranda Blomster, Silvia Klatt Baking (cake), Edel Olin Myhre (makeup artist), Adrian Westbrook (officiant), and Irene Lovund (photography/assisting), Michaela Potterbaum (photography/planner).

As our first official blog entry here at Promise Mountain, it goes without saying that we are very excited to present our first mountaintop wedding elopement shoot here. Hanlin & Leo were some of the first inspiration that made this dream come alive. As you can see from the images posted on here, a lot of our visual inspiration for our website came from their shoot as well.
Hanlin & Leo were lovely clients, based out of England and originating from China. They were an absolute pleasure to work with, and a gorgeous couple as well.
This package was elopement ceremony only, without an officiant-- followed up by a bridal shoot in the nearby mountain top and Stranda fjord region. The lead photographer was Michaela from Michaela Nichole Photography. Lodging was provided by Norwegian Cabins and the mountain top ceremony was held at Strandafjellet.
We are excited to launch our services and we hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed our time with Hanlin & Leo.
Congrats again Hanlin & Leo on a beautiful wedding day and marriage celebration!
