SEE: The Incredible Photos from the First Underwater Wedding

As we all know weddings are very expensive, from the dress to the cake to the decorations. One couple decided to start a wedding trend that would forever ease the bank account of some pain for when it came to planning that big day.

Bob Smith, a diving clown, and Mary Beth Sanger, a synchronized swimmer, decided to let their wedding be located in their favorite place, the water. It all happened in 1954, the two attached weights to themselves and took the necessary precautions so their clothes would stay in place, then went underwater as all their friends and loved ones watched.

They exchanged vows and kissed all while standing submerged underwater.

The slideshow above shows the amazing images that were captured on the couple’s special day. Would you get married underwater? Let us know below!
