AVALON (CBSLA) — Weddings are meant to be memorable, but “Take the Plunge” now has a whole new meaning on Catalina Island.

The unique wedding package is available for one day only — Thursday, May 13.
On that day, four couples will have the chance to say, “I do!” while safely harnessed the 3,600-foot-long Zip Line Eco Tour course.
“Though there have been many proposals over the years, there has never been an actual wedding on the famous Zip Line – until now!” said Geoff Rusack, President and Chief Executive Officer of Catalina Island Company. “We are excited to finally be able to celebrate the Zip Line’s 10th anniversary and, coming off of a challenging year where many couples did not have a chance to have their dream weddings, we hope to bring some joy and excitement through these one-of-a-kind nuptials.”
Each of the five platforms along the course will feature a different element of the ceremony, from the Bride’s procession down the “aisle”— at speeds of up to 35mph — to vows officiated by the Mayor of Avalon.READ MORE: Suspect Arrested In Palisades Fire; Evacuation Orders Lifted As Containment Grows
