Airplane Wedding in Dallas

After a canceled flight, an Oklahoma City couple decided to take on the suggestion of the airplane’s captain to conduct their marriage at 37,000 feet in the air according to a Dallas Morning News article from April 29 which reports, 


“Jeremy and Pam Salda said “I do” at 37,000 feet last weekend when a helpful fellow traveler and an adventurous captain turned a missed opportunity into a memorable event, along with toilet paper streamers and a donut wedding cake, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines said.


After the cancellation, a fellow traveler who was also headed to Las Vegas suggested they rush to Dallas Love Field to catch a Southwest Airlines flight.


When the couple boarded the plane at Dallas Love Field, the plane’s captain noticed that they were already wearing their wedding attire, Patterson in a white dress and Salda in a suit.


“The captain sees us and says, ‘Oh, are you going to Vegas to get married?,” Patterson told ABC 15 News in Phoenix. “And I said, ‘Well, we’re going to try. If not, I want to do it on this plane.’ And he goes, ‘Really?’”


Apart from the captain, the 37,000 feet marriage was made possible by the flight crew and surprisingly, the passengers as well who were delighted to take part according to an NBC 5 DFW article from April 29. They say, 


“Kligora said nearly all of the passengers cheered as the plans were announced to those on board.


Once at cruising altitude, he said the flight attendants pulled out of all the stops with toilet paper streamers, and a sash made of in-flight snacks he could wear as the officiant.


Call buttons lit the aisle as the bride made her way to the front of the plane before handing her bouquet off to an attendant who stood in as her maid of honor.


“When I was standing at the front looking out at all of the passengers on board and all you could see was cell phones lit up and everyone recording, it just… If you had any doubt about humanity, it was restored. It was amazing,” said Kligora.


“Everybody was congratulating us, and you know, thanking us for sharing our happy moment with them and bringing them a little bit of happiness,” said Jeremy Salda.”


The couple will proceed to celebrate their successful marriage with their friends and family in Cabo San Lucas. Amazingly, Kligora was invited by the couple and the former is looking forward to it already.
