Even if you can’t image getting married on Mount Everest, all of us at one point in our lives picture our wedding day. Beautiful flowers, women in dresses, men in tuxedos, the cake! Whatever your fantasy of a perfect wedding may be, you would probably go to great extent to make it a reality.
As a matter of fact, that’s just what one California couple accomplished, although with a lot of effort.
Ashley Scmeider and James Sisson decided against the tradition wedding – instead, opting to get married on Mount Everest instead.
The couple spent a year preparing for the expedition, but the planning and training was nothing compared to what they experienced when they arrived in Nepal in early March. To make sure their special moment was fully documented, the couple brought along famous adventure photographer, Charleton Churchill.
It took the trio nearly 3 weeks to reach Base Camp Everest at 17,000 foot elevation. After braving the high snow levels, extreme low temperatures and altitude sickness together, Ashley and James finally said their vows.
Charleton Churchill’s photos capture the extreme beauty of the truly unique ceremony.
The fact that these two love birds decided not only to climb it, but to get married on top of Mount Everest completely blows my mind. I’d say this couple really has the legs to go the distance and weather any storm.
