Stunning Photos of a Marriage Proposal in an Icelandic Ice Cave

Reddit user VolcanosMeltMeDown recently had the rare opportunity to explore an ice cave near the Skaftafell glacier with her Icelandic boyfriend, who had a special surprise in store for her. Luckily, since the couple are both photographers, they managed to document the entire journey thanks to a camera and tripod, capturing gorgeous images of the icy cave.

With snowy banks, flowing streams, gigantic icicles, and massive blocks of curved ice in stunning shades of blue, the cave is a photographer’s dream. Adding to the natural beauty are the sweet photos of the marriage proposal that caught VolcanosMeltMeDown by surprise and turned the expedition into a truly unforgettable memory.

According to the Redditor, who recently moved back to the US after living in Iceland for a year, her boyfriend tried to take her to this cave back in January, but the river was too big to let them go inside at the time. This time, however, nature was on their side, allowing the marriage proposal to unfold in the most spectacular setting imaginable. As we can see from the photo of the happy couple kissing, VolcanosMeltMeDown said yes.
