“It was fun you know, you’re on there and your veil’s out and your dress is flying around, it was just a lot of fun,” said Jill.

“It was a little heavy, you know, water and clothes are a little bit heavy, but once you’re up, you can shake it off and pull everything in place so you get a good shot,” Ziv said.

“At first, I wore a life jacket but you know you couldn’t see that it was a dress so I thought, ‘ok, I’ll stick to the board,’ and I got up,” said Jill.

“Fires, floods, the pandemic, elections, you know everything is kind of pushing and [putting] pressure on everybody’s psyche and so we decided to have a little fun and you know happiness and make people smile,” Ziv said.

Now, they have one-of-a-kind wedding photos and memories to last a lifetime.
