Couple marries in zero gravity


Erin Finnegan and Noah Fulmor of New York City got married over the weekend inside a Boeing 727-200 specially-equipped to plummet briefly into zero-gravity freefalls.

The bride wore a special pantsuit gown and her hair had to be held in place by wires, while the groom had stiffened tuxedo tails. Apparently the first kiss was a bit difficult as the bride recalls, “Noah knocked into my nose and I thought it would bleed.”

She also said that the entire experience “was weirder than I expected,” though she wanted to do something different than “a lot of the boring weddings” she’s attended.

Mission accomplished, ma’am.
