Catalina Island Company's Zip Line Wedding Giveaway

Take the plunge into this Dream Wedding Giveaway!
Laura Cross

Do you and your fiancé have an adventurous spirit and are willing to “take the plunge” in a truly unique and special way? Are you a first responder, essential worker or educator whose wedding plans were affected by quarantine or closures? Are there other challenges in your life that make YOU the most deserving of a complimentary, one-of-a-kind wedding?

Catalina Island Company wants to make your wedding dreams come true with a Zip Line Wedding Giveaway on Catalina Island!

For more than 10 years, Catalina Island Company’s Zip Line Eco Tour has been thrilling guests with a 3,600-foot-long course that zig and zags across Descanso canyon and through a grove of towering eucalyptus trees. The adventure is set against the backdrop of California’s beautiful Catalina Island, California’s Island Escape™, with sweeping views of the ocean and the island’s iconic Casino building. Though there have been many proposals over the years, there has never been an actual wedding on the famous Zip Line – until now! Celebrating the popular attraction’s 10th anniversary and coming off of a challenging year in the wake of COVID, where many couples did not have a chance to have their dream weddings, we are offering one lucky couple the chance to have a truly one-of-a-kind thrilling wedding ceremony.

Weddings are meant to be memorable but “Take the Plunge” takes on a whole new meaning with this Zip Line wedding! One lucky, adventurous couple will have the opportunity to say, “I Do!” in one of nature’s most beautiful settings all while safely harnessed as they soar through the Zip Line course. Each of the five platforms along the course will feature a different element of the ceremony, from the couple’s procession down the “aisle” -- at speeds of up to 35mph -- to vows officiated by the Mayor of Avalon (Catalina Island’s largest city), to a romantic first dance, and, finally, a Champagne toast and cake at the end of the course.

The unique ceremony is just one element of the amazing prize package that Catalina Island Company has put together for the lucky couple:

  • Marriage ceremony on the Zip Line complete with music and officiant
  • Post-ceremony Champagne toast and cake
  • Professional photographer to capture the wedding ceremony + framed commemorative photo
  • Hair & makeup artist for one or both of the participants
  • Tuxedo(s), compliments of Friar Tux
  • Fresh flower bouquets and/or boutonnieres for the couple
  • Transportation to and from Catalina Island via Catalina Express or Catalina Flyer
  • Two nights in a king room at the famed historic Hotel Atwater
  • Private chef’s dinner on the balcony of the Casino on the couple's wedding night
  • Private cabana at Descanso Beach Club including a bottomless mimosa brunch
  • Voucher for a land or sea activity offered by Catalina Island Company
  • In-room amenities including chocolate-covered strawberries

Total value is over $5,000.
