Newlyweds Kerin and Jonathan Narcisse will never forget their wedding day.

Moments after the happy couple exchanged vows in a hot air balloon on Monday, a gust of wind forced the pilot to crash land in a backyard in San Diego, the Associated Press reported today.

Miraculously, the 13 people onboard the hot air balloon survived the crash, the Los Angeles Times reported. One person was taken to hospital with a minor back injury.

The rest continued to the reception.
