The marriage can only go up from here.

A hot air balloon that soared thousands of feet into the air crash-landed in a San Diego backyard moments after Jonathan and Kerin Narcisse exchanged wedding vows, according to KGTV.

A strong gust of wind forced the pilot to abort the sunset ceremony and make the unplanned touchdown, according to KFMB.

The strong wind blew the balloon about one mile off course and swung the basket holding the couple and 12 others, KNBC said.

Guests whipped out cellphones and recorded the scene.

After bouncing off the ground, the yellow and blue balloon crashed into trees and a fence at the top of a hill behind the home.

One guest suffered minor back injuries. Everyone else walked away, albeit shakily, from the accident and continued on to the reception.

"We had a blast," Jonathan told KNBC. "It was fun...On our anniversary next year we have to skydive."
