This Adventure-Couple Did Something That Others Can Only Dream Of... They Got Married At Everest!

Tripoto

This couple from California took their relationship to new heights, literally, and got married on Mount Everest! Ashley and James are adventurists who had been planning their wedding for the longest time. They did not want the best day of their lives to be just about any other ordinary event, and decided that their wedding had to definitely be eccentric. The most important thing they thought of while planning this wedding was to make it as adventurous and different as possible. So, they decided, why not Everest.

Such a thing has obviously never been done before, and the way their photographer Charleton Churchill has photographed the whole wedding, will leave you exceptionally envious. Ashley found Churchill on Instagram, and approached him to photograph their big day. All three of them brainstormed for sometime, and decided that the wedding rituals had to be be done at the Everest Base Camp.

Ashley and James trained very hard for this exceptional expedition back at home, and it took them, along with their photographer Charleton, three weeks to reach the Everest Base Camp, at 17,000 feet. Ashley wore an exquisite wedding dress paired with trekking boots instead of stilettos, and walked up some glacial steps instead of walking down the aisle, to take vows with James; who looked smart in a black tux, also paired with trekking boots! The whole affair was very carefully photographed to keep both the contrasting elements in the frame together, beautifully.

Hats off to this couple for planning such an unconventional wedding, and lots of admiration towards Ashley, especially for wearing that dress and not succumb to hypothermia!
