Feb. 23 (UPI) -- An Australian couple celebrated their love, as well as their favorite ride, by holding their wedding aboard a California roller coaster.

Logan Stojcevski, 32, and John Woods, 35, who first rode the Twisted Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia during a trip to the United States in 2015, were married Thursday morning just before one of the ride's large drops.

"We wanted to do something different when we got married," Woods told KTLA-TV. "So the best way to start married life is on a roller coaster."

Stojcevski said the wedding will be yet another treasured memory at the park.

"I've been a massive coaster fan all my life. Six Flags Magic Mountain is my favorite place in the world, so what a better place to get married, and on our favorite ride, Twisted Colossus," Stojcevski said.

The wedding was captured by a news helicopter camera and broadcast live.

"We found the best way to get married and make live TV news in Los Angeles," Woods wrote in a Facebook post.
