Couple gets married on Cedar Point's new water slide

Skip the wedding dress and tux… All you need is a bathing suit.

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- They skipped the wedding dress and tux, instead wearing bathing suits to begin their lives together.

One couple got married at noon Wednesday in a slippery wet way at Cedar Point's newly expanded water park.

They first exchanged rings at the bottom before racing to the top of a six-story slide and saying "I do." Once they sealed everything with a kiss, the newlyweds climbed inside a Point Plummet capsule to take the plunge on a 400-foot-long adventure that begins with the floor dropping from beneath their bare feet.

We streamed live coverage of the wedding on Facebook.

A makeshift wedding reception with friends and family was held for the happy couple at the bottom of the slide.

It was part of a nationwide contest in which Cedar Point searched for couples daring enough to exchange their vows before literally taking the plunge.

A couple from North Canton had also been selected to get married atop the slide, but later backed out.
