A couple from Oklahoma City was on their way to Las Vegas to get married when their flight got delayed due to weather.

Jeremy Salda and Pam Patterson were ready to board their flight out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport in full wedding attire when their connecting flight got delayed again that day.

An ordained minister who happened to be booked on the exact same flight overheard their story and offered to help them.

The three of them managed to find three seats on another flight connecting in Phoenix. While checking in, the airline’s agent at the gate phoned one of the flight attendants and told her that “there’s a lady out there in (a) wedding dress”.

The flight attendant made sure that she greeted the couple as they boarded the plane and suggested that she asks the captain whether he would be willing to let them get married on the plane while flying.

The captain agreed to do it while they were in the air. With the plan in motion, the flight attendant downloaded “Here Comes The Bride” before taking off and volunteered to be the maid of honour.

The flight attendant shared the story with CNN saying that “they said their vows, and it was really cute. She said all these kinds of little aeroplane things. Like I’ll be your co-pilot.”

The ceremony took place while they were 37,000 feet above Arizona.

As luck would have it, a professional photographer happened to be on the same flight and offered to take photos.
