A couple from Utah jumped 13,000 feet after getting married aboard an airplane, on Thursday.

Emily Lucero and Allan Toole boarded a plane in Tooele, Utah, for the wedding.

"It takes about 10 minutes in our plane from takeoff to jump," ABC News quoted Phil Liu, manager at Skydive Utah, who hosted the nuptials, as saying.

"The pastor did a quick two- or three-minute ceremony, the instructors tightened the harnesses and then they all jumped," he said.

The bride and groom, the pastor, and two bridesmaids were strapped to the instructors.

According to Liu, this is not the first time Skydive Utah has played host to a wedding.

A previous manager, he said, married mid-jump after the "I dos" were replaced by nods and a quick kiss was exchanged in the air.

Lucero and Toole have shared many adventures in the five years since they met.

"We've made it a point to do other fun things like paragliding, snorkeling and scuba diving," Toole said.

"So I think it symbolizes that we like to play," she said. (ANI)
