ASHEVILLE, S.C., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A South Carolina couple who wanted their wedding guests to remember their ceremony as the "most fun" time rode zip lines down the aisle.

Lauren and Ben Youngkin, who wed Saturday at the Crown Plaza in Asheville, said they did not warn their wedding guests before they showed up on zip lines, complete with harnesses, helmets and carabineers in addition to their formal attire, WHNS-TV, Greenville, reported Monday.

"Zip-lining isn't omnipresent in our life, but, we have a good time. We like to laugh, and we like for everyone else to laugh, too. At our expense," Ben Youngkin said.

The couple said their zip line scheme was aimed at amusing their wedding guests.

"The most important thing about the wedding, we wanted people to come away from the wedding and say, 'that was one of the most fun times I've ever had,'" Lauren Youngkin said.
