This couple has been head over heels from the get-go.

Cheetah Platt and Rhiann Woodyard, of Woodland Hills, California, have done everything together since they met -- when it was love at first lift.

“Rhiann showed up at an acrobatic training session and we just started training together,” Platt, 30, told ABC News. “I picked her up and never put her down.”

On the one-year anniversary of the day they met, April 16, 2014, Platt popped the question.

“I said, ‘Yes,’” Woodyard said, unaware at the time just how many times she’d continue to say, “I do.”

Put off by the high cost of planning their big day, they decided to put that money toward a global wedding adventure that lit up the Internet.

“It was expensive, it was stressful, nothing was feeling right,” she said of the wedding-planning process. “And we realized, ‘Wait a second, renting a venue is $10,000 or we can go around the world for $3,000.”

They’ve now had 47 weddings around the world, and Platt said they never spent more than $50 for lodging.

“When we arrived in each country, we had no idea where our wedding would take place,” he explained. “Some places were very easy. In Egypt, we knew we wanted to get married in front of the pyramids, but in Morocco, no idea.”

Their very first wedding ceremony was held in the public botanical gardens in Bogota, Colombia, but his favorite ceremony so far was easily at the pyramids.

“Standing in front of the pyramids was the most amazing thing in the world,” he recalled. “They’re 6,000 years old and it’s the only standing thing that man has made that’s still standing. And to share that element with giving our vows, it took humbling to a whole new level.”

The idea for the worldwide weddings “came about organically,” he said. “It’s been a beautiful experience.

“We basically said, ‘If we don’t have a venue, we could use a public space. If we don’t have catering, we could do a potluck. If we don’t have decorations and a florist, we need somewhere that’s absolutely beautiful.’ We whittled it down and thought, 'The ceremony we want is just me and her and to proclaim our love.’”

And with that, the wedding adventure was born.

“It’s not eloping,” he said. "It’s traveling and experiencing the whole world. It’s been an incredible adventure. In my whole life I could never imagine this. This is our perfect wedding. It’s not everyone’s perfect wedding, but make sure what your ceremony means to you is the most important.”

They legally tied the knot in California a few weeks ago, but the couple's wedding extravaganza isn’t over. This morning, on “Good Morning America,” they wed for the 48th time, celebrating their most epic “I Dos” ever in the middle of Times Square.

"This is the best day of my life," Platt said, smiling ear to ear, after saying their vows and cutting into their celebratory cake.
