HOUSTON -- Two circus acrobats tied the knot on a tightrope during a performance in Houston.

The groom, in a white tuxedo coat, arrived on a camel and climbed a side ladder to reach the tightrope.

The veiled bride rode a horse. She shed her high heels and adjusted her flowing gown to also climb a ladder to the wire.

The smiling newlyweds descended and waved to the cheering crowd as they walked away arm-in-arm.
