Couple Gets Married On Mount Everest After Trekking For 3 Weeks, And Their Wedding Photos Are Epic

Dressed in a full suit and wedding dress, James Sissom and Ashley Schmieder spent days scaling the mountain range in order to be photographed in front of such a breathtaking backdrop. Their big day was captured at Everest Base Camp, around 17,000 feet in the air, having battled the likes of freezing temperatures, snow and altitude sickness along the way.

The American couple were accompanied by wedding photographer Charleton Churchill, who had only a small window to shoot the occasion, as temperatures stood at between –20 and –15 Celcius and James required oxygen to tackle his sickness on the mountain. Here: James Sissom and Ashley Schmieder exchange vows on Everest.
