Amanda Volf and Grant Engler's Newport Beach wedding was hardly a typical California oceanside ceremony.

The adventurous couple wore jetpacks.

"Grant and I are kind of outdoorsy, adventurous-type people and, as you can imagine, to do something like this you'd have to be excited for that," Volf told days before the wedding. "It all came together so fast and it's all happening."

"It's going to be an awesome story to tell our kids and to tell our grandkids," Engler added.

"With a gorgeous Southern California coast as their backdrop, the groom, who wore a white bowtie over his black wetsuit, and bride, decked out in a white rash guard, white board shorts and veil, 'flew down the aisle' by jetpack to Pachelbel Canon in D, and were married on a small beach with forty of their closest family and friends," a press release stated.

The once-in-a-lifetime event was hosted by ZOZI, the same adventure and experience company the couple booked with a few months ago. While on that Mexican getaway, Engler proposed.

"Afterwards, I emailed ZOZI to share the news out of sheer excitement, and they wanted to help us take our already special moment to the next level by pulling off this incredible experience as our wedding," Engler said. "Amanda and I both share a deep love for the outdoors and seeking out new adventures together. The funny part is that Amanda is actually a wedding planner — but to us, a wedding is wherever you are with the person you love."

The $100,000, 25-pound, water-powered jetpacks were provided by Jetlev Southwest.

ZOZI has a pending request with Guinness World Records to verify Enger and Volf's weddings as the world's first jetpack wedding.

For their honeymoon, the adventure-loving couple are going zip-lining in Costa Rica, the Orange County Register reports.
