Fly Away With Me…Yes, please! When people talk about dream weddings, how many think of a helicopter ride to the top of a mountain? Well, that’s precisely what this beautiful couple Elyse and Josh had in mind for their West Coast wedding. 49 North Helicopters, based in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, is known to provide some sweet heli-love packages for the more adventurous couples out there.
Wondering what you need to know to include a mountain adventure on your wedding day? The first thing is to decide if you wish to make it a part of your wedding or get ready and go the day before or after. Do you want to bring up a bridal party/family or make it a romantic twosome? Once you figure out what you want to make of your time at the top, then you can plan your actual trip. Some things seem obvious, but remember that it will be chilly at the top. And that you will need some very serious footwear, so either make sure it can be hidden by your gown or shop for something warm and stylish. Your gown will be going through some things, so have a plan if you are returning to a reception. The wind could make some inroads on your hair, so you may need to rebook your hairstylist on landing.
Helicopter rides and sweet mountain I love yous, can make yours the most epic of West Coast weddings. So jump in, ask your honey to ‘fly away with me’, and head for the mountains!
