Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com)--- Many couples will tell you that marriage is a leap of faith...for one Cloquet couple, that couldn't ring more true.

Amy Olson and Chad Ebling are skydivers.

The two met at Skydive Superior in February of 20-12.

They shared many jumps before Chad took the ultimate leap- asking Amy to marry him.

Just weeks later, the two were aboard one of two planes, waiting to jump in what would be Amy's 500th jump.

Those two planes would collide in mid-air.

Miraculously all eleven people on board survived.

While that scare would stop many, not Amy and Chad.

They got back to jumping as soon as they a plane available and the wedding is still on.

For the high-flying couple what more fitting way to tie the knot than while jumping out of a plane.

The bride and groom to-be will say their "I-do's" as they skydive over Superior Saturday night.

"That's how we met, that's how we live. that's our life. That's our love and passion. So it's not going anywhere, that's really what it's all about. We're gonna leap of faith and go to town," said bride-to-be Amy Olson.

The couple says the crash brought them closer together as they realized life was short.

Friends and skydiving family will be coming from all over the world for Saturday's wedding festivities.
