West Dover, VT (February 14, 2012) – The inaugural Cloud Nine Nuptials at Mount Snow Resort in Southern Vermont had 17 couples renew their vows and two couples tie-the-knot for the first time at the peak of the mountain this morning to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The festive occasion began at 10:00am with a procession up the Sunbrook Quad, complete with Pachelbel’s Cannon in D providing the background music, followed by each couple taking their place around a giant heart painted in the snow at the top of the mountain and a spirited ceremony conducted by a local justice of the peace.
Mount Snow staffers acted as ushers and groomsmen, all decked out in black ski jackets and red neckties. Mount Snow’s Director of Marketing and Events, Matt Gebo, took it a step further by donning a tuxedo for the event.
“Following the success of the inaugural Cloud Nine Nuptials we have already decided to make this an annual event,” said Gebo. “There were a lot of great moments today; from the couple that renewed their vows for their 44th wedding anniversary to the two couples that officially got married at the top of the mountain. Memories were made today and we look forward to helping create more memories next year on Valentine’s Day.”
