The trains did run, though, and we were brought up to a beautiful, flattish alpine location known as Skyline. There the photographer, Jay Philbrick, was allowed to disembark so as to get photos of the bride and groom standing on the gangway (the car’s end platform). It was quite pretty. The rime ice and snow along with the fog and falling snow created a white world winter alpine hikers are quite familiar with and it’s delightful — and dangerous. Yes, the conditions were indeed slick so everyone else remained safely aboard.
After the photo session ended and their family and friends made their way forward for photos of the tundra, we flipped the backs of our seats so as to face the other way and slowly descended the mountain. The actual wedding ceremony was still something on our to-do list for the day, but since the train wouldn’t take us to the summit, we took the wedding elsewhere. Specifically the bride and groom decided on a favorite haunt nearby: the Upper Falls of the Ammonoosuc River.
It was there the bride and groom, Jeff and Devon, finally tied the knot. What follows are some scenes from the day.
Congratulations Jeff and Devon! Thank you for sharing your special day! We wish for you health, wealth, and happiness. May your years together be many.
