CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — James and Cortni Music have already experienced the ups and downs of marriage, and that was on their wedding day.
The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/29L0qaW ) the couple chose the Fury 325 roller coaster at Carowinds amusement park as the venue for their exchange of vows. The Mount Airy couple visited the amusement park on the North Carolina-South Carolina line for Independence Day weekend last year. It was their first official date after knowing each other for about 14 years, and they rode the roller coaster multiple times.
They rode again on Thursday, with a minister riding alongside, and the bridesmaids and best man behind them.
The 325-foot opening climb lasts about 60 seconds, so the minister had to finish the ceremony before the ride crossed the border into South Carolina.
