Couple marries while hovering over Calif. beach

Friday - 8/24/2012, 8:33am  ET

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Here comes the bride, all dressed in a jet pack that's zipping down a California beach.

Amanda Volf and Grant Engler donned water-powered packs Thursday to be married in Newport Beach.

The 25-year-old former wedding planner from Grand Rapids, Mich., says she wanted a unique ceremony. So the couple donned the $90,000 contraptions on their backs, along with a wetsuit for the groom and white board shorts and a rash-guard shirt for the bride.

The jetpacks from Jetlev Southwest helped the couple hover a few feet above the water, to the cheers of their wedding guests.

Everything went smoothly _ except for a kayaker who capsized during the newlyweds' first dance on the water.
