Blushing bride Amanda Volf, 25, was stunning in a $90,000 jetpack, white wedding veil and water-proof makeup, while flying through the air over shocked beach goers.
The former wedding planner said she wanted a unique ceremony. She got one so shocking that a stunned kayaker capsized as bride and groom zoomed overhead across the Southern California sky.
Groom Grant Engler, 25, wore a wetsuit and a tuxedo bow tie with his Jetlev R200 water-powered jetpack.
Engler is a hotel manager who proposed to his fiancee last April during a Mexican vacation. The engaged couple began thinking of wild wedding ideas, thus the jetpack nuptuals.
"They're a blast to use, they're easy to learn, and you look really cool when you're on them," said Engler about the couple's wedding jetpacks.
The Englers' water-powered jet packs sucked water that was sent up through a 33-foot hose to two control nozzles on each jetpack.
After their wedding vows, followed by "I do," the happy California newlyweds flew back into the air with their jetpacks for their first dance as man and wife, to the tune of "Come Fly With Me" by Frank Sinatra.
"Grant and I are kind of outdoorsy, adventurous-type people," said new bride Amanda Volf-Engler. "To do something like this you'd have to be!"
