Traditional weddings are, you know, traditional — and they don't typically include things like setting yourself on fire as you head off into the night. For one Utah couple, however, being sprayed with a fire extinguisher to douse errant flames is commonplace, so doing the same on their wedding day was just par for the course. Gabe Jessop and Ambyr Mishelle, of Ogden, are stunt doubles who work on film and television sets for shows such as "Yellowstone" and "Hereditary." According to Jessop, having a wedding that showcased their "day job," was a way to show friends and family what brought the two of them together. So, with the help of professionals in pyrotechnics, securing the proper permits and all that jazz, the couple blazed their way down a beachy aisle on the shores of Wasatch County’s Jordanelle State Park in front of family and friends and millions of viewers who caught wind — or shall we say smoke — of their flaming wedding.
