250 Penguins? Check. Wait...what?

Yes, you read that right. While braving 32-degree temperatures and rocking snow boots, Susanne Grieve and Jeff Rawson tied the knot on January 10 in front of 250 penguins inside SeaWorld Orlando's "Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin" exhibit, Orlando's WFTV reported.

News of their wedding also made the rounds on Reddit, after user jared9903 posted a picture of the icy nuptials (above) with the caption, "Today, a couple got married inside the penguin exhibit that I work at."

According to WFTV, the ceremony was fitting for the couple's relationship, considering both the bride and groom are explorers who met in Antarctica back in 2012.

“Antarctica is such a beautiful and intense environment," Grieve told WFTV. "When you experience that with someone, the bond you create is rare. Having our wedding here at SeaWorld in this realm that so perfectly captures the essence of the continent brought me right back to the day Jeff and I met."

Plus, the penguins were already dressed for the occasion (sorry, we had to).
