Here comes the bride, on a jetpack.
Wedding guests saw a truly unique ceremony when the bride and groom rocketed across Newport Bay in Southern California with water-powered jetpacks.
Grant Engler, 25, and, Amanda Volf, 26, from Grand Rapids, Mich. started at opposite sides of the bay. First the groom jetted down the proverbial aisle-over the body of water-to land on the shore. Shortly after, his bride followed suit to her requested entrance song, "Pachelbel's Canon," keeping the wedding somewhat traditional.
"We're pretty adventurous," Amanda told the Daily News. "We enjoy the outdoors and do fun stuff all the time. Maybe not quite like this because this is a new activity for people to experience. But I wouldn't say people who know us were surprised."
Zozi, an adventure travel startup, hosted the wedding with jetpacks supplied by Jetlev Southwest. The jetpacks suck water through a tube and blast 500 pounds of pressure to soar through the air. Each costs about $100,000. The bride and groom arrived around 9 a.m. for a three-hour practice session before their 3 p.m. ceremony on Thursday.
"It's the closet you can be to flying. It's an indescribable, amazing feeling," Grant said.
