Couple gets married on cross-country Southwest Airlines flight

Fox News Travel 3 months ago

A Baltimore-bound Southwest Airlines flight was feeling the love Sunday night when a jet-setting couple took their relationship to the next level -- thousands of feet above ground.

In a video posted on social media by passenger Skylee Campbell,  the groom, Michael, stands at one end of the plane as Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” plays and bride Renee makes her way down the aisle holding a yellow rose.


The pair reportedly boarded the plane in Las Vegas dressed in their wedding attire – her a white dress and veil and him a tuxedo – and remained in their seats until 45 minutes were remaining in the five-hour trip. At that point, they each stood and walked toward opposite ends of the plane.

Campbell, who shot the video, told Yahoo Lifestyle the flight attendants helped set the scene for the couple.

“It was adorable. They had us all turn on our call lights to light up the aisle and play music,” Campbell said.

The pilot officiated the nuptials from the cabin.

“They met each other four years ago and this weekend decided to make it at least another four years. They met on a date — and yes, ladies and gentleman, it really does work,” the pilot joked over the intercom before asking the couple to repeat their vows.


After the brief ceremony, the newlyweds danced down the aisle with the flight attendants.

Campbell told Yahoo Lifestyle the couple was also presented with a makeshift wedding cake made up of straws, toilet paper and napkins containing marriage advice from other passengers.
