It's that time of the year again. When thousands of adrenaline junkies from around the world unite at the New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville.
But what keeps these dare devils returning and others just beginning? It's that 876 foot leap off the bridge. Giving them an adrenaline rush that keeps them wanting more with a single plunge.
But despite the scary yet exciting jump, other jumpers looked for romance.
"We really wanted to just do this jump," said Erika Terranova. Erika and her fiance, Patrick Steiner decided to tie the knot at Bridge Day. "We're both into base jumping and figured this was the best way to start our life together," said Steiner.
Saturday was Erika's first Tandem BASE jump. Patrick has experience in BASE jumping and says he couldn't wait to marry Erika while doing something they love.
"We didn't want to wait until she was done doing her training. Bridge Day was coming up and we took the training from Vertical Visions and the rest is history," said Steiner.
And it truly was history in the making. The couple exchanged their vowels, locked lips, and a few minutes later they made the leap as husband and wife.
It's a day when no one seems to leave the New River Gorge Bridge unsatisfied. All while uniting two lives in the jump of a lifetime.
