Skiing purists may still turn their noses up at snowboarders, but it’s now been an Olympic sport for two decades. And you know you’ll be watching Shaun White as he shreds his way through the PyeongChang games this month.

Now, say, White were to want to get married—at last we heard, he was dating Sarah Barthel, lead singer of Saratoga area band, Phantogram. He might consider getting hitched doing the sport that made him famous.

Yes, there’s such a thing as a snowboarding wedding, and you can make one happen at your friendly neighborhood ski resort—like Killington in Vermont. Stacey and Mark Reindl did just that—they incorporated snowboarding into their big day, bounding down the slopes in their wedding finest.

“Right before the vows, my husband-to-be Mark and I snowboarded down Killington, and then we were married in the Grand Resort Hotel at the base,” Stacey Reindl says excitedly at the memory of her big day. “It was zero degrees when we got up, and it warmed up to a balmy five degrees. I had three wedding dresses that day, so I was actually snowboarding in my mother-in-law’s wedding dress, which was altered so it was a little shorter, so I could actually snowboard in it. And I did wear two base layers. We had a photographer and videographer shooting us the whole time, and our whole wedding party went out with us as well. So I kind of felt like a movie star.”
