- Skye and Ryan Myers wanted a big wedding but had to downsize the ceremony due to Covid-19 restrictions and Skye starting nursing school.
- So they decided to celebrate their wedding at Hawksbill Crag, an iconic cliff on the Whitaker Point hiking route in Arkansas.
- For the occasion, photographer Mason Gardner captured Skye and Ryan's images holding hands while standing on the edge of the cliff.
The couple from Mountain Home, Arkansas, wanted a big wedding but had minimal time to plan it because Skye (28) started nursing school, and Covid-19 regulations also made a big celebration impossible.
Ryan (30) says, "We are avid adventures and love the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, boating, camping rotate spots on our agenda, so we are always looking for the next epic adventure. Somewhere in the middle of June this year, after being together for more than four years, I told her I didn't want to wait any longer, not being married to her."

"That's when we started looking at gorgeous iconic spots for an outside ceremony, so that it would be magical and memorable." Ryan says, adding that they had 12 guests, and it was at the end of the ceremony that the breath-taking photo-shoot was made.
"For the photos, Skye was in a sit harness designed for climbing. Everyone included had experience and was well trained in climbing. All equipment and safety gear used was inspected and cleared by an expert," he says.
"Our crew was made up of myself, my best man Gage, Skye and her sister Summer, one rappelling expert, and our photographer who was amazing!"
