라이언 젱크스와 킴벌리 웨글린 부부는 익스트림 스포츠를 즐긴다. 두 사람은 외줄타기부터 암벽등반까지 다양한 운동을 섭렵했다. 그런 그들이 최근 결혼식을 올렸다. 물론, 평범한 결혼식은 아니었다.
마이모던멧에 따르면 이들은 지난해 11월 미국 유타주 모압 캐니언에서 결혼식을 올렸다. 정확히 말하자면, 협곡 사이 120m 상공에 친 그물 위였다. 이곳은 젱크스가 정확히 1년 전 웨글린에게 청혼한 장소다. 1년 만에 같은 장소로 돌아와 결혼식을 올린 것이다.
신랑의 들러리였던 앤디 루이스가 특수제작한 그물은 결혼식을 더욱 화려하게 장식했다.
하객들은 공중곡예를 선보이고, 요가를 하거나 그림을 그리는 등 각각 자유로운 방식으로 결혼식을 즐겼다. 화동 역할을 맡은 패러글라이더들은 결혼식이 끝남과 동시에 꽃잎 5천 개를 공중에 흩뿌렸다.
젱크스와 웨글린은 몇 년 전, 모압 캐니언에서 열린 고공 줄타기 축제에서 처음 만나 인연을 맺었다. 그 후 익스트림 스포츠로 가까워진 두 사람은 결국 처음 만난 장소에서 결혼식을 올리게 됐다.
웨글린은 "전통적인 결혼식은 '우리답게' 올릴 수 있게 되어 정말 즐거웠다"며 결혼 소감을 밝혔다.
Instead of “I do’s”, @slackinhigh and I exchanged “HELL YEAHS!” I think everyone was stoked ;) It was so fun to be able to take the traditional ceremony of marriage and turn it into something so completely “us”, down to every last detail. Thank you @sketchyandylewis for the net and for being best man, thank you @slacklifebc for helping Andy, Ryan, and I dream up the spacenet aisle into a reality, possibly a world’s first. Thank you @blackrockseco for officiating us like a PRO even though you’ve never been to a wedding before. You had big shoes to fill and your feet were busting out at the top. Thank you @_gillogs_ for being my best woman and letting me put you on a net 400 ft in the air completely out of your comfort zone. Thank you @theletabug @cdignes @lizasouras for performing on silks and lyra under us. Thank you @friedikuehne for crushing it on the 700 footer behind us while we said our vows. Thank you @mrcorbing for coordinating all the BASE jumping “flower girls” and not hesitating when I said I was hoping for a crew of jumpers to pack flower petals into their chutes. Thank you @Katevictoria_hair for coming all the way to Moab to do my hair! Thank you @mtn_mat for coordinating our wedding day, the rave AND cooking the entire reception dinner for 200+ people. (Sorry we tasked you with so many big and critical jobs 😬🙌❤️) Thank you @canyon_cain for DJing the sickest wedding reception ever. Thank you to our families and entire groom and bridal party for supporting us along the way. My dad even got out on the net to walk me down the aisle! Thank you @galialahav for hands down making the most beautiful and intricate gowns on the planet and making me feel like an absolute desert goddess out there. Thank you @kinsleyjamescouturebridal for helping me with all the dress alterations. Thank you to all the monkeys that came out to help set up the wedding in the days prior, and thank you everyone that came out to celebrate with us!!!The day was what it was because of all of you! Thanks everyone for getting involved and staying stoked. I love this community and Ryan and I are so happy to get to share our love with all of you. 📸: @thehearnes
이날 결혼식을 사진에 담은 사진작가 애비와 캘런 헌스 부부 역시 "꿈만 같았다"고 소감을 전한 바 있다.
Yesterday still feels like a dream. @_kimw_ and @slackinhigh fell in love in Moab and got engaged in Moab, so it only made sense to them to get married here too. They planned the most amazing celebration and invited all the monkeys out to play. They were married on this spacenet (built by the amazing @sketchyandylewis), 400 feet above the desert, while friends walked high lines (zoom in to see someone in the background!), performed aerials on silks below, played music around, and flew a paraglider above. They even had BASE jumpers as “flower girls” leap off the edges of the cliffs with 5,000 flower petals in their packs. It was unreal. I am so beyond in love with this amazing community and stoked to see everyone’s creativity come together for Kim and Ryan. I hope you’re ready for my feed to be nothing but desert adventures for the next month 👏🏻 @galialahav @kinsleyjamescouturebridal
