Brave bride stages heart-stopping wedding photo shoot
Mountain Home, Arkansas - This wedding ceremony is a heart-stopping sight, and not because of the usual reasons. The bride appears to be falling off a 1,900-foot cliff during her wedding photo shoot.
Ryan (30) and Skye Myers (28) came up with a crazy stunt: the newlyweds from Mountain Home, Arkansas, marked their wedding ceremony with an unusual – possibly life-threatening – photo. At least, that's what it looks like.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, the couple had to keep their wedding low-key with just a few guests. But they made the most of it by getting married at Hawksbill Crag, a famous cliff on the Whitaker Point hiking route in Arkansas, which also happens to have a whopping 1,900-foot sheer cliff face.
Photographer Mason Gardner was on site capturing breathtaking photos of the couple and in one dramatic snapshot, it looked like the bride was about to fall into the abyss!
But no worries: the moment was staged and definitely wasn't as dangerous as it looked. The 28-year-old bride was actually well secured and safe during the shoot.
A wedding ceremony followed by heart-stopping wedding photos
The groom told The Sun that the two of them are always looking for the "next epic adventure."
The couple started looking at "gorgeous iconic spots" to make their outside ceremony "magical and memorable.”
The two adventurers got married in a small circle of twelve guests against a beautiful backdrop. After they said "yes" to each other, they were ready for some action.
Ryan emphasized that everyone who was involved in the stunt had training and experience in climbing, including the groom himself, his best man, the bride and her sister. Not to forget an additional abseiling expert and the "fantastic" wedding photographer.
The latter posted numerous pictures of the adventurous marriage on his Facebook-profile. He also shared how the breathtaking snapshot of the falling bride came about.
Even though the couple wasn't able to celebrate a big wedding, their spectacular photo shoot made a big impression on Facebook.
