It Was A Nice Ceremony But The Bride Acted Cold

Atlas Ocean Voyages guests get married in Antarctica...on purpose...

Historically, after a couple gets married, they can't wait to get their clothes off. Not this time because this couple Courtnie Dodson and Brody Vermillion decided to say I do with chattering teeth on Danko Island in Antarctica.

They were onboard Atlas Ocean Voyages World Navigator, and when they said I do, they became the first couple to get married in Antarctica. But they were not the last as three other couples were also legally joined in matrimony when they took advantage of the ships 'Happy Ever Atlas wedding package.

Atlas President Alberto Aliberti said, "We are happy to perform the very first official weddings in Antarctica, not just ceremonial as often happens. Atlas Ocean Voyages prides itself in delivering luxury adventures in remote and captivating destinations, and Happy Ever Atlas is perhaps the most adventurous destination-wedding experience to date."

World Navigator held separate bachelorette and bachelor group parties and hosted a shipwide wedding reception. According to Seatrade News, each couple received an included official UK marriage license, valued at more than $650, which the US government also recognizes. The package also included a wedding cake, digital photo package, gift bag, custom nuptial announcements, and thank you cards.

According to the Points Guy website, Atlas is the first new luxury cruise brand to debut in more than a decade and was created by Mystic Invest Holding (a Portugal-based company with major interests in river cruise ships, tours and attractions). For now, it’s launching with just a single small luxury expedition ship, the 196-passenger World Navigator. But it has plans to grow quickly with four more sister ships by 2023. Measuring just 9,930 tons, World Navigator was specially designed to offer intimate, upscale and adventurous trips to some of the world’s most off-the-beaten-path destinations.
