(CNN/KTXL) – Getting married can figuratively put a couple on cloud nine, but for Ryan Jenks and Kimberly Weglin, decided to make their wedding literally have that feeling.

"That's our whole life, we didn't really change anything about our lives to make this wedding happen which I think is the interesting part that a lot people don't really realize. We live this lifestyle every single day."

Kimberly and Ryan live the slack life-constantly searching for bliss known as flow state.

"It’s when you're not thinking about what you're doing and it just happens automatically."

They travel around the world and take in the scenery through highlining and slacklining, with the GGBY Festival in Utah being a yearly tradition.

"We've always done it together and this festival is something we've always gone to together, so we thought it'd be a great place to get married."

With the help of their high flying and acrobatic friends, they were able to make it happen on November 20th, just a day before the festival kicked off.

"I’ve heard a lot of people say because its every woman's dream to get married on a spider web and I was like, for me it was. That was super romantic for me because that's what we love."

The couple says everyone was safe as they were over 400 feet above the canyon, even Kimberly’s dad, who provided the greatest photo of her wedding that has gone viral.

"He had walked me down the aisle and he made it out there and he was like 'yea!' and that was the cutest thing and he actually fell walking me down the isle, but instead of being embarrassed about it he just laughed it off and was smiling and everybody just started monkey calling him and he was so excited just to be there. He'd never done anything like this."

The couple's goal is to raise exposure for the sport they love.

A sport that allows Kimberly to take on her fear of heights, a sport that brought the two together, a sport they know they will have with them for the rest of their lives

"if you live the slack life and all your time, money and energy goes into slacklining. It’s just a different kind of vibe."

A vibe that put them on cloud nine, and they have the pictures to prove it.
