This wedding is actually a dear friend of mine’s sister. I have never met her but she is totally bad ass, as you can see. I’ve always loved the idea of a wedding being about the a couple and not what guests want from them. This to me is the ultimate example of proving love through partnership, putting your life in each others hands, and well, scaling a mountain together. Its a truly beautiful moment in a total strangers life. And I, of course, cried.

I’ve always wondered how the BBC was able to get such amazingly beautiful up close footage of wildlife doing their wildlife thing. And this is how! It’s so cool that I don’t even want to tell you. Just watch for yourself. To me, seeing how they are filmed is twenty-fold more exciting than watching animals in the wild (which is an impressive feet).
