Love is in the air

Love is in the air – way up in the air.

Lovebirds have a chance to exchange nuptials from the top of a mountain on the most romantic day of the year.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be offering free Valentine’s Day wedding ceremonies once again. Last year, six couples tied the knot and seven renewed their vows at the top of the Revelation Gondola overlooking the Monashee Mountains. 

“It’s a tradition that’s really catching on with local couples,” said Ben Taylor, event co-ordinator for Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

If couples are interested, they are required to buy a marriage certificate from the court house before-hand.

The ceremonies are conducted by a marriage commissioner and couples are treated to champagne and cupcakes, compliments of the resort, after signing the registry.

John Hill and Julie Hamel, long-time ski instructors, were among the couples who chose to tie the knot at the resort last year.

“This type of wedding was perfect for us. The setting is stunning, and the planning was simple,” said Julie. “While other girls dream of traditional weddings, a special day on the mountains is what made me truly smile.” 

Ceremonies will run from noon to 2 p.m. at the Mackenzie Outpost on a first-come “first-wed” basis. Local photographer Keri Knapp will document the event and will have prints available for purchase.
