How does getting married atop a glacier sound? No it is not impossible, though it might be a tad chilly. Be sure to include a winter coat in your honeymoon suitcase and plenty of moisturizer in your destination wedding beauty checklist!

The Taku Glacier Lodge and Glacial Gardens in Juneau are popular alternatives.
