Marriages At 29,000 Feet Have Never Worked Out Or Failed!

posted by Holly Morgan - 

Talk about a destination wedding!  A couple from Northern California spent 8 days hiking Mount Everest to snap some epic wedding pics!  James Sissom and Ashley Schmieder hired the now Instafamous adventure wedding photographer, Charleton Churchill, to get the job done!  Not sure how they're going to top this one. 

For the 6000+ extra instagram followers who added me this week, thank you, I'm truly humbled. We never expected this much attention. We just wanted to capture some beautiful and epic wedding photos. I would love to hear how you found out about the everest wedding story and how it moved you. . About the image below. . We trekked up the mountain in frigid temps, a few snow storms, icy steep trails, getting sick, and made it to base camp. Nine days of hiking an average of 6-8 hours a day. We had planned to sleep at Everest Base Camp for two nights and capture a butt-load of photos around camp that I had envisioned. However, being that another snow storm was on its way, which would have made it difficult for us to get down the steep icy sections where we had seen others slip, and also James had a deep Khumbu cough that required oxygen, we decided to be safe and take a helicopter down after the ceremony. We were told we had one hour and a half to eat, drink, and get married. . Two hours after we took off, we were in Kathmandu feeling the warmth and satisfaction of being back on the ground. Getting back to the hotel for a shower, which we hadn't had in a week was also nice. I wore the same clothes for the week and used wipes to clean myself everyday. I'll share more images not seen yet and stories as I finish up editing images, maybe next week. . Read the full story on the link below my instagram bio.
