It’s being said that, Marriages are made in heaven. We often hear that couple gets married in the middle of the air or under the sea. But this adventurous couple from California thought in a different way. They got married at the top of Mount Everest base camp at 17,000 feet above sea level.
Yes, you read it right.
James Sissom, 35, and Ashley Schmieder, 32 spent three weeks trekking up to a Mount Everest base camp at 17,000 feet above sea level to get married. Surprisingly, they even took their wedding photographer, Churchill along with them.
Here are the stunning pictures of the adventurous couple

The pictures are stunning but do you think the process of taking them is simple? No, it was quite challenging.
"The temperatures ranged from -8 degrees to 10 degrees Fahrenheit from 14,000 ft. camp and above, so your hands would quickly freeze if left out of the gloves, like when I tried to film and take photos," Mr Churchill writes.
"Now saying this was an epic and amazing trip is true, but I would be remiss if I didn't share it came with some suffering, doubt, fear, anxiety, and physical pain…There's no glory without suffering," writes wedding photographer Mr Churchill on his Instagram.
"When we arrived to base camp, we were told we have 1 hour and 30 minutes to eat, get married, pack up, and get on a helicopter. So, we ate, drank, and got married in an hour."
Really, it needs tremendous will power and energy to sustain chilling and freezing weather. Kudos to all three of you!
