Skydiving Proposal...What to do about the ceremony?

Here's the deal... we met online a year ago, communicated only through email and phone calls, never actually met, because I went back to my ex.
Fast forward 1 year...I go back online for 1 week, he is on for 3 days. He finds my profile, fits into the myriad of filters I had set up, and asks me if we should try it again. I email him my ph#, he asks me to go skydiving..I do, and 4 hours later he proposes.
Question: Do we just get married at the Drop Zone where he proposed, and just have a really casual friends and family affair..This place is SO not 'fancy friendly' which is fine with me, but I've always wanted to be married on the beach..

WOW! He proposed on your first real date? CRAZY! And very cool and romantic.

I think you should get married on the beach....you can do it for pretty cheap and not too fancy...

I don't think you have to plan your wedding around skydiving just because the proposal was done that way. Do you have video of the proposal? Maybe you can play it at the reception....

Not sure where you are located...but there are plenty of public beaches to choose from no matter if you are in CA, HI or NY.

I thought Drop Zone was shut down because someone got seriously injured this summer? I love the idea of you, your husband skydiving out of a plane, with the officiant. That's definitely something no one's ever done before!

I thought the Drop Zone was the area where you're dropped over when you skydive? I vote the beach, but that's because I love the beach. ;)

I?ve always wanted to go sky diving...can't find enough people to get the group discount.....
You don't have to have it at the site...You seem like adventurous people, have it some place unique, but nice looking. Maybe have your wedding on the cliffs and go base jumping (if jumping on land) or cliff jumping (into water)after you say I do... Have a dare devil theme. Maybe have a cake topper made of you guys sky diving.

I think you should go with your gut on this one...maybe get married on the beach...since its something you have wanted for a long time...and plan your honeymoon around a great place to go sky diving....somewhere really beautiful....and then you can combine two things that are important to you guys.
