They arrived in a limo, dressed for a night on the town. They got out and assembled just-purchased trekking poles and donned light traction over dress shoes. Dyed in the wool hikers would roll their eyes at the sight, no doubt, but lovers the world over would note how this couple will go to great lengths, albeit in short distances, to tie the knot. In the rain. Undeterred. Not suffering. They were completely happy and at peace with the weather. Wet knots are impossible to untie. They were reminded of this fun little fact. Maybe it helped. Aside from squinting in the rain, they were all smiles the whole time.
Our Justice of the Peace, Redline Guide Mike Cherim was concerned about safety. He wasn’t guiding, it was a self-guided wedding party, he was only officiating the service — though he did walk in with the wedding party keeping an eye on things, just in case — he hoped they weren’t getting themselves into trouble. The hike in is only three-tenths of a mile (one way) but in the rain, postholing deep, dress shoes filling with snow… well, things could go bad.
But they didn’t. It was awesome. They wrote a section of the ceremony themselves, a vows exchange, and it was quite lovely from both the beautiful bride and dashing groom. What a delightful ceremony.Congratulations!
Thank you for the pleasure of officiating your wedding, Mobolaji and Sarah Ann. Congratulations!
