Mountaintop Wedding


Mountaintop Wedding.jpg

Montana’s Lone Mountain stands above most peaks

Providing skiing challenges and fun for all to seek

Today brings a most special day on this tallest mountain

Witnessing a wedding with more beauty than a fountain

On a clear and cold Friday love will indeed arrive

Blessing the union of two people to forever thrive

This loving couple enjoys their shared passion to ski

Planning to tie the knot with a wedding party to see

The adoring bride and groom arrive at mid-morning

Riding to the lofty summit in a gondola that’s soaring

There’s no more beautiful moment than a wedding

Joining of two lives as one in this majestic setting

Wedding vows are exchanged in wind—bitter cold

Sharing their simple words of love, special and bold

Precious wedding rings left at home, safely hidden

Dropping them in the deep snow would be forbidden

The brief ceremony moves to its eventual conclusion

Watching the husband kiss his wife seals the union

The newly married couple dressed in their skiing attire

Planning to ski down before remaining daylight expires

The young bride is easy to see as she finishes her run

Wearing a white veil on top of her helmet, just for fun

Both the husband and wife are skiers of great skill

Continuing to enjoy a few more runs is quite a thrill

The Lord has blessed this couple’s wedding day

Smiling at their love with beloved words to say

My youngest daughter and her wonderful husband were married on February 2, 2018.  Yes, they were married just below the summit of Lone Mountain in southwestern Montana.  I honor their union with this poem.  The picture was taken by a member of the wedding party, and it captures the newlyweds completing their first ski run as husband and wife.
