The 1935 American Legion climb featured a special event: this wedding at the summit house. We learned from this post that the bride was Betty (Van Arsdale) Patton, but now we get to see the wedding itself. The groom was Harold W. Patton.
Wonder what the best man is holding in the bag?

First time you ever saw a bride and groom with their hands in their pocket?!
And maybe charcoal or zinc oxide on some of the faces?

I know I put those rings in one of these pockets... hope I don't drop 'em in the snow...

on the far right- looks like a Mazama's outdoor club patch on the arm ? or ? anyone agree ?
Looks like rubber bands to keep the snow out of the pants- center
what's the white box on the look out near the roof line- looks to be metal- first aid kit ?
what's in the snow- far left- a can of ?

The box near the roofline is the Mazamas summit log. The Mazamas have these logs in their archives. The can in the snow says ? Bros. Coffee (I'm guessing Hills, but the can is turned too far). Can't be sure on the rubber bands, and the patch is too out of focus to make out any detail. I have seen Crag Rats patches in other frames.

Yes, I would imagine there would be Crag Rat patches, as they were the guides on the American Legion Climbs, however I don't see one in this photo.
