Sometimes we come across wedding photos that are absolutely stunning and unique and today we wanted to show you stunning photos from a couple’s wedding on Mount Everest.
Ashley Schmieder and James Sissom, a California couple, decided to say ‘I do’ in one of the most stunning venues there is – a place where many people have never even thought to visit!
Photographer Charleton Churchill, who specializes in adventure wedding photography, told TODAY Style that he had been wanting to capture a wedding on the site of the world’s tallest mountain for years. He had originally planned to do this with another couple back in 2015, but the 7.8 magnitude Nepal earthquake struck and halted the nuptials while they were on the mountain.
“This 2017 wedding was my second chance to get a couple on the mountain and be the first wedding photographer to shoot a wedding at base camp with the first couple to wear a wedding dress and tux,” he told TODAY Style.
So in March, he headed to Mount Everest with Ashley and James. The conditions were difficult, but that didn’t stop the pictures from coming out beautifully.
On the wedding day, the temperature ranged from minus 5 degrees to 5 degrees. The bride had to focus on keeping warm in her wedding dress. The couple wore boots, beanies and sunglasses with their black-tie attire, and she covered her arms with a wrap.
Because it was so far away from home, the couple had no minister but exchanged vows and rings, said Churchill to TODAY. “It was truly a moment of awesomeness, knowing where we were at that time, and how hard we worked to get there.”
