Spectacular Photos of a Bride and Groom in an Alaskan Ice Cave

One month after images of a bride and groom standing in front of a wildfire set the web ablaze, here are some unique wedding photos that are as cool as ice. Photographer Chris Beck recently captured stunning images of his friends Torsten and Sarah posing in the Mendenhall Glacier ice cave near Juneau, Alaska after their wedding nuptials.

To get to the location, the group had to hike over rugged terrain for over two hours, kayak through freezing water, and climb the side of a mountain. Judging from the fantastic photos, we’d say it was worth it, as the couple now has a one-of-a-kind collection of portraits to commemorate their special day. The happy newlyweds look absolutely radiant in the ice cave, with streams of water flowing around them and the surreal blue glow of the glacier above them.

“Taking a picture requires more then pressing a button,” Chris wrote on his Facebook. “It's about telling a story. Sarah and Torsten have been good friends over the years, and their relationship is all about Juneau. As avid outdoors people, what could be more symbolic then a photo shoot of a bride in an ice cave?”
