In terms of badass ways to enter into your wedding ceremony, I’d have to say that sky-diving might just take the top prize. But for Lauren & Langdon – a sky diving certified, and loving, couple – it was a no-brainer.

Photographer, Andrew Morell shares:

When I first met Lauren at a Starbucks in suburban Washington DC, she floored me with her wedding plan. She said, “well, Langdon and I are going to do something unusual – skydive into our wedding.”

OK. That’s cool. Wait, what? Skydive?

Yup.

Just wait until you get a load of these pictures! Freakin’ sweet.

Lauren & Langdon’s Rad Sky-Diving Wedding in Virginia

So cut to September 9, 2012. A day that dawned cool, clear and perfect for skydiving. After some spirited prep photography with both Lauren and Langdon at the elegant Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, VA, they donned their wedding-themed jumpsuits and we headed off to Leesburg Airport.

Nearly 30 minutes later, back at the wedding venue, the guests gasped as they looked up and saw their Cessna 182 circling above (only to find out later that nearby Dulles Airport actually shut down airspace around the airport – THE major international terminal for the entire Washington DC area). Moments later, greater gasps as 2 parachutes opened up, a bride and groom suspended thousands of feet above the earth, slowly descending to their ceremony. Speechless.

The rest of the day was as raucous and unique – Brides with cigars, Superb food, and an ethereal spirit… only to end with a 1933 Packard ferrying them to their honeymoon plans (only after an uncle of the bride did some ad-hoc engine repair).

A splendid sun splashed day, with a fearless couple – Lauren and Langdon.
