Couple Marry In Antarctica Fulfilling Dream Of Visiting Every Continent

A brr-ide and groom had the perfect white wedding - getting married in Antarctica while fulfilling a dream of traveling to all seven continents. Melissa Ferbert had always wanted to travel to all seven continents, and by doing service work overseas and having worked for a cruise line she was able to tick off many destinations. Over the past 11 years she traveled to 79 countries across six continents but one - Antarctica - she had yet to conquer. It seemed a long way away until boyfriend Jamie Hanson proposed in 2016, and Melissa, from Missouri, USA, started to investigate the possibility of a marriage ceremony in Antarctica. When she booked the Spring 2019 trip back in September last year, travel company Swoop assured her they could make the wedding happen. On March 25 the couple said their vows in 28F (-2C) temperatures and tied the knot surrounded by the spectacular scenery, a handful of witnesses and honorary guests - penguins. To get there they sailed through some of the roughest seas in the world and were on land only a few hours a day before going back to the ship and leaving no footprint behind. Melissa and Jamie celebrated the remaining three days of the trip as their honeymoon, and even got an astonishing wedding gift as a pod of curious humpback whales approached their zodiac boat as they returned to the ship after checking out glaciers.
