Bride, groom climb mountain in tux, gown to say 'I do'
McLEAN, Va. (KABC) -- A couple quite literally started their marriage "on the rocks" when they climbed 900 feet to say "I do."
Bob Ewing and Antonie Hodge Ewing tied the knot atop the narrow peak of the Seneca Rocks in West Virginia. The bride made the long climb in her mother's wedding gown, and the groom wore his tux.
In case you haven't guessed it, the bride and groom are avid rock climbers. So who came up with the extreme wedding ceremony?
"Bob proposed to me on a root a little bit lower, and I said, 'Why don't we just get married here as well since it's so pretty,'" the new bride told "Good Morning America."
Mother of the bride, Evangeline Hodge, made it to the top as well, along with the brother of the groom, who became ordained to perform the ceremony. Another brother photographed the ceremony from atop a nearby rock.
Arthur Kearns, owner of the Seneca Rocks Climbing School, said people have occasionally gotten married at the peak, but he's not aware of anyone doing it in formal attire.
A second ceremony and reception took place back on the ground the next day with the rest of the couple's family and friends.
