MOAB — Suspended 400 feet over the stark beauty of a Moab canyon, California couple Ryan Jenks and Kimberly Weglin tied the knot and said “I do.”

The adventurous couple fell in love surrounded by the red rocks of the Utah desert and thought it only proper to seal the deal in the same place after getting engaged on a space net in Moab the year before, according to their wedding photographer’s Instagram post.

Best man Andy Lewis engineered a colorful space net for the wedding, and the couple exchanged vows while their friends walked high lines and performed aerials on silks below. The couple’s “flower girls” doubled as BASE jumpers and lept off surrounding cliffs with 5,000 flower petals in their packs.

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

“It is a representation of confidence, self-love, and life; the energy I want to surround myself with and carry with me into our marriage and throughout our lives together,” Weglin said in an Instagram post.

Jenks and Weglin are both slackliners and co-founders of Slackademics, a slackline and highline art, education and resources website.
