Justin Willman and Jillian Sipkins really are trying as hard as they possibly can to win the award for best wedding of all time. After sharing a video of themselves getting drunk and retelling the story of how they met—in the style of Comedy Central’s Drunk History—the couple is now showing off their first dance.

Set to “I Put a Spell on You” by “Screaming” Jay Hawkins, the couple’s well-choreographed dance includes props, acrobatics, and even a magic trick. That’s right, the bride levitates the groom in the big finale of the performance.

It shouldn’t be all that surprising that they manages to sneak an illusion into the dance. Considering Willman is a magician by trade, it’s practically expected. Having Sipkins take the lead on the trick is a great twist, though.
