(KEYSNET) — A Miami couple was married Tuesday to help mark the 50th anniversary of the installation of an iconic underwater statue off the Florida Keys.
Kimberly Triolet and Jorge Rodriguez wed beside the Christ of the Deep statue, positioned in 25 feet of water, about five miles off Key Largo. A notary public used an underwater slate for the vows' exchange that was witnessed by friends and other divers aboard a boat from the Amoray Dive Resort in Key Largo. And several fish and other marine life were present as well.
"To be able to get married at the Christ statue on the 50th anniversary is amazing and we'll for sure be coming back for our 50th anniversary to dive it again," Triolet said. "Picture cannot just describe how pretty it is, and it's something definitely that should be on everybody's bucket list to see."
