Undercast Blessing

The clouds formed a sea of white all around and below us. It was as if the 6288′ (1917m) Mount Washington summit on which we stood was an island. The thick clouds all around us figuratively lapping at our shores like water. Peering outward from our place a few islands were visible. 4000-footers like Carter Dome and Mount Lafayette rose above the clouds. The phenomenon described, […]

This Location

This location is Hart’s Location. It is situated at the northwestern corner of Carroll County. Where three counties — Carroll, Coös, and Grafton — collide. There, at the very extreme, rests an elephant. He hides unsuccessfully in the trees. We see him and recognize his features coming from the north. His head is prominent and distinctive by its shape. You can’t miss it. It’s Elephant Head. […]

Direttissima Honeymoon

What do hikers and climbers do to celebrate their wedding? Well, the latest couple we married won’t be caught lounging on some cruise ship, they plan to begin a 14-day Direttissima. For those unfamiliar with that term it means, translated from Italian, “the most direct way.” To climbers this means straight up the shortest route to the top (which will be the steepest). In hiker terms, […]

To Great Lengths

The elephant remembers well the last wedding atop his head. Remembering is what elephants do, after all. The last wedding brought Arctic breezes, recalls the elephant, but he also remembers the warm spirits, the laughs, and the love. This wedding wasn’t bitter cold or exceptionally windy. This time the elephant, however, stood stoically in a cold, penetrating March rain. And like the last, he again remembers […]

Winter’s Last Wedding

Unless we are called to officiate a sudden elopement, we just performed a final pre-spring wedding, and like the last, it was atop the 2800′ Mt Willard. Specifically we are referring to the wedding of Jennifer and Karl on Saturday, March 16th, 2019. The mountain-top service was officiated by Redline Guiding owner and New Hampshire Justice of the Peace Mike Cherim, with photographic services offered by […]

Weddings to the Wild

The producers of PBS’s Windows to the Wild with Willem Lange reached out many months ago asking if we wanted to help them with a segment about a mountain top wedding. First they wanted to know if we knew of a bride and groom scheduled for a summit wedding who might be willing to share their day with literally anyone and everyone tuning into the program. […]

Extreme Snowmobile Wedding

A snowmobile wedding is what they wanted, and being that Redline Guide and Justice of the Peace Mike Cherim used to ride and once owned his own snow machine, a snowmobile wedding is what they got. Since Mike is no longer a snowmobile owner, however, and our guests didn’t have machines of their own either, they enlisted the help of Northern Extremes in Bartlett, NH, to […]

Holiday Elopement

Adam and Alessandra, being long time visitors to the White Mountains — often mountain running — and having tested various options in local dining and lodging, keep coming back over and over again to Jackson, NH. Most notably to the Eagle Mountain House on Carter Notch Road. This fabulous inn is so high on their list, in fact, they decided to make it the venue for […]

Marrying Hikers

Stephanie and Tom found us on Google and realized our Justice of the Peace Mike Cherim would be a perfect choice for their wedding service at the Thompson House Eatery (T.H.E.) in Jackson, NH. Not because Mike officiates mountain-top and wilderness weddings — which clearly this venue doesn’t qualify — but because hiking is a significant part of their lives and Mike is an avid hiker. […]

Wonderful Wonalancet Wedding

From California, bride and groom Patrice and Austin requested a wedding in the field adjacent to the quaint and surperbly picturesque Union Church. What a great spot. It’s so pretty there. To anyone who has hiked out of the Ferncroft trailhead — serving Blueberry Ledge and Dicey’s Mills trails to name but two — has driven right by this church and its neighboring field before. What […]
