MALIBU, Calif. --  A Kansas City couple received an email from the Los Angeles Fire Department, apologizing for disrupting their Malibu wedding.

David and Jihan Chesher have a good attitude about it, though.

They were in the midst of their beach wedding ceremony when a helicopter rescuing a rock climber flew extremely close to them.

The Los Angeles Fire Department emailed the Cheshers with an apology and told them they planned to use the video, complete with glimpses of their wedding, in a training video.

"We were taking some post wedding photos on the beach and he came down to apologize and he was so apologetic, 'I'm sorry I ruined your day' and we're like 'You did the exact opposite. This was the best day of our lives and we got a half time show.'  Shook his hand gave him a hug like this was great-- glad you're okay," explained David and Jihan Chester.
