Couples say ‘I do’ from the top of a mountain

Alpine Bliss... Nearly weds Sam and Cait King got married today on top of the second gondola at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. The couple are from Mount Beauty, Australia. However, they met in Revelstoke at the bus stop several years ago. The self-titled ski bums were both staying at the hostel. They kept in touch, and eventually became a couple. They wanted to wed in the place they met. See story/photos on page 12. (Liam Harrap/Revelstoke Review)
