Not everyone who gets married is ready to have both feet on the ground while they do it.
Take, for instance, Noah Fulmor and Erin Finnegin. They’re a cute couple from Brooklyn who find that being in love makes them feel weightless…and they’ve decided to make it literal on their wedding day.
Noah and Erin will be the first couple to marry in a zero-g environment on June 20.
The couple, who are both big sci-fi fans, were surprised to learn nobody else had tried this. Says Fulmor:
“We would really prefer to do it in space or on Mars but living in the time that we do, this was the closest we could get to zero gravity,”
And so it is that they will travel to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, to exchange their vows aboard a plane owned and operated by Zero Gravity Corportation, the only federally approved purveyor of zero-g flights.
The flight will cost $5,200.00 per person, which the couple will cover themselves. The guest list will be small and intimate.
Since they met in 2000 at an NYU science fiction club, Noah and Erin have attended a lot of weddings together, but wanted theirs to be different. I think they’ve succeeded in that goal.
May they never lose that deliciously floaty feeling of love.
Oh, and live long and prosper.
