San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012

Love is an adventure. Literally, for Grand Rapids, MI, couple Grant Engler and Amanda Volf, who were wed today by jetpack in Newport Beach, CA, in once-in-a-lifetime wedding hosted by ZOZI, the most trusted brand in adventure and experience. The commercially available water-powered jetpacks were provided by Jetlev Southwest.

With a gorgeous Southern California coast as their backdrop, the groom, who wore a white bowtie over his black wetsuit, and bride, decked out in a white rash guard, white board shorts and veil, “flew down the aisle” by jetpack to Pachelbel Canon in D, and were married on a small beach with forty of their closest family and friends.

“I proposed to my then girlfriend on an awesome ZOZI getaway in Mexico back in June,” said Grant Engler, groom. “Afterwards, I emailed ZOZI to share the news out of sheer excitement, and they wanted to help us take our already special moment to the next level by pulling off this incredible experience as our wedding. Amanda and I both share a deep love for the outdoors and seeking out new adventures together. The funny part is that Amanda is actually a wedding planner – but to us, a wedding is wherever you are with the person you love.”

To celebrate the momentous event, ZOZI will be giving away an all-inclusive jetpack adventure getaway for two in Newport Beach, CA. To enter for a chance to win, go to: http://www.zozi.com/love
