Grant Engler and his new wife, Amanda Engler, celebrate at their wedding ceremony which they arrived for in jet pack suits Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 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 (Canadian) $90,000 (C72,000) contraptions on their backs, along with a wetsuit for the groom and white board shorts and a rash-guard shirt for the bride. The jet packs 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. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
