Ain't no mountain high enough for this daredevil couple. When Kimberly Weglin and Ryan Jenks, of Lodi, California, decided to get married, they wanted to make their big day completely unforgettable. So naturally, they chose to have their wedding ceremony 400 feet above a canyon in the Moab, Utah, desert, held up only by a spiderweb of ropes. As one does. Could you think of a better place for this pair of slacklining frequenters to tie the knot? (Maybe on the ground, just an idea.)

On November 20, 2017, Weglin, 25, and Jenks, 33, ventured 400 feet into the air on a floor of ropes with their bridal party and photographers the Hearnes Adventure Photography for their Fear Factor–worthy wedding.

“I used to be terrified of heights...So, it really meant a lot to get married in the air in a space that used to scare the s— out of me, and have it feel normal,” Weglin said to People in an interview. “We also added a whole bunch of paracord to the net for the wedding...to ensure it’d be really stable for the day of. If you didn’t look down, it was pretty easy to forget where you were.”

And according to the Hearnes's website, the wedding party had just as much guts as the couple. During the ceremony, friends performed aerial stunts below the net, while others did acro-yoga on the cliff’s edges. Some guests even flew over the ceremony in paragliders.

“As they ended the ceremony, exchanging ‘Hell Yeahs’ instead of ‘I Do's,’ 10 BASE jumper ‘flower girls’ lined up along the cliff edges in tutus and jumped off one by one, releasing 5,000 flower petals that had been packed in their parachutes,” the site reads.

The newlyweds are currently on their honeymoon in Belize, and we don't even want to imagine what kind of stunts they're getting into. Congrats to the happy couple!
