Weddings come and go, but not all of them are memorable. For passionate sledders, there’s one sure way to stand out from the rest: A snowmobile-themed wedding.
We’ve covered quite a few of these wed-by-sled affairs. Here’s a list of the most momentous sledding weddings that we’ve come across over the years.
