“Breathtaking” is no exaggeration here.
Accompanied by adventure wedding photographer Charleton Churchill, Ashley Schmeider and James Sissom scaled Mount Everest to become husband and wife at its peak — in full wedding regalia, which they carried up themselves.
The night before they reached base camp, Sissom suffered from altitude sickness and had to sleep with an oxygen mask, but thankfully, he recovered, and the epic photo shoot continued as planned. Here are some highlights from their wedding at 17,600 feet.
