In this image, the bride and groom gear up to enter Area 52, the trampoline park.

These newlyweds decided to really shake things up for their wedding day by spending a bit of time at a trampoline park which, in addition to the jump zone, provided numerous activities, including a battle beam station that the couple made the most of. This unique pair decided not to keep to wedding traditions, but rather to have some fun and some good beer on their special day. On the way to the trampoline park, they had a brief walk in the city garden while drinking their favorite beer and enjoying the sun and fresh, green grass.
