Couple Trek Mount Everest For 3-Week To Get Married. The Photos Are Breathtaking!
One California couple took the quote “love can move mountain” and changed it to, “Love moved us to a mountain” and climbed it to prove it. Not only did they climb it they got married on top of the mountains! Ashley Schmeider and James Sisson felt that a run-of-the-mill wedding ceremony wasn’t for them– so they decided to get married on Mount Everest instead!
32-year-old Ashley and 35-year-old James are the moiuntain climbing couple who spent a whole year planning and training for the expedition, and when they finally arrived in Nepal in early March it was definitely not a easy journey. Accompanied by their photographer, Charleton Churchill, it took them most of the 3 weeks it took to reach the 17,000-foot-high Base Camp Everest, to finally say their vows after braving deep snow, freezing temperatures, and altitude sickness together. Churchill’s photos of the unorthodox ceremony show a spectacular blend of rich blue, crisp white, and rugged stone.
The images on their wedding is absolutely breath taking! Take a look:
And surely this hard journey to the top of a mountain will help them to strive for happiness in their marriage as well.
