Most brides choose to have their dad walk them down the aisle on their wedding day.

Amanda Volf chose a jet pack instead, zooming down an ocean aisle to wed her groom-to-be, Grant Engler, in what appears to be a first-of-its-kind wedding Thursday.

Instead of waiting for his bride at the end of the aisle, Engler donned one of the $90,000 contraptions himself, meaning both bride and groom flew in together to meet their shocked guests on the shores of Newport Beach, Calif.

It was there that Volf, 25, from Grand Rapids, Mich., and Engler, also 25, said, “I Do,” in what is being billed as the first jet-pack wedding in history.

Volf is a former wedding planner herself, so perhaps she thought a jet pack, connected to a boat through a hose, would be easier than planning a wedding.

Instead of a dress, she only had to pick out the pair of white board shorts and a white rash-guard shirt she wore for the short flight and ceremony, while Engler wore a wetsuit.

In a bid to wedding tradition, however, Volf donned a veil and Engler donned a white bow tie with his black wetsuit.

The couple are honeymooning in Costa Rica and could not be reached for comment.
