Squamish Chief Wedding Sees Couple Tie The Knot At 2,300 Feet (VIDEO)

"A lot of people when they speak about marriage, they talk about metaphorically climbing a mountain, and you guys literally just climbed a mountain together."

That's how wedding officiant Pep Fujas summed up the July marriage of Jamie Alperin and David Lamb atop the Chief, a 2,300-foot rock formation in Squamish, B.C.

The couple from Steamboat Springs, Colo. didn't want to settle for any old ceremony, ABC 13 Eyewitness News reported.

Inspired by friends who carried out a similar stunt, they hired photographer John Lloyd and videographer Dominic Gil to capture every moment as they scaled the challenging climbing area — her in a wedding dress, him in a bow tie.

"Together you're unified with one rope, do it together and trust and communicate with each other the whole way up. It was incredible," Lamb told the network.

The whole wedding cost just under $13,000, according to The Daily Mail.

"Everyone says if they could do it over, they would have done it the way we did it," Alperin told the Mail.

The photographer has some spectacular images of the day on his website.
