World's Most Unusual Weddings: Zero Gravity Wedding
New York newlyweds Erin Finnegan and Noah Fulmor said "I do" in zero gravity in June 2009. The couple's wedding ceremony took place "specially modified Boeing 727-200 aircraft" that flew multiple parabolas, creating a weightless environment for the couple and their guests. The wedding was hosted by Zero Gravity Corporation, which bills itself as the only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights. Private astronaut Richard Garriott officiated the ceremony.
