I shared a bottle of wine yesterday with my new friends Eva Marie, Birna and Hannes from Pink Iceland. They are three friends (Eva and Birna are a couple) who started a business promoting LGBT travel and wedding planning in Iceland, where same-sex marriage is legal. Little did they know that straight couples would be calling them, too, because they are the best at what they do!
During our conversation, I learned a lot about Iceland, a country which not only tolerates being gay but completely celebrates it. They are only a population of 325,000 people but they have a fabulous sensibility. And the natural landscape is gorgeous in Iceland. Within 40 minutes of the main city (Reykjavik), you can be in stunning natural settings, that you just don't find much of in the U.S.
I know that I'll be adding them to our list of international partners for gay destination weddings. I just LOVE this photo of two grooms near a geyser.
