It was cold, windy, snowy with near whiteout conditions which is what I’ve grown to expect having photographed this event at least five times over the years.

Cheers to all the winners and losers, Kent
The 22nd Annual Mountaintop Matrimony was held February 14, 2013 in honor of Valentines Day at Ski Loveland. It might have been the coldest ceremony in the history of this event as the snow and wind were howling as 88 couples were either married for the first time or renewed their wedding vows on the deck of Ptarmagin Roost Cabin, elevation 12.050 feet!
