A New Zealand woman and an Australian man set a new milestone for love and romance when they exchanged nuptial vows 34,000 feet in a flight above the Tasman. Love was literally in the air when David Valliant and Cathy Valliant tied the knot on a commercial Jetstar flight from Sydney to Auckland.
The couple said 'I do' when the plane was halfway point between their home countries. Their marriage was officiated by the Jet cabin crew and the flyers on board became witness as they atteded the wedding unnoticed. The flight's captain stunned the passengers after he made an announcement about the ceremony and congratulated the couple as other passengers applauded.
The wedding happened on October 9 and David and Cathy got married at the exact halfway point between the two cities they are from, Sydney, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand.
"It was the most amazing experience and something we will remember for the rest of our lives," Cathy Valliant said.
Cathy and David met online in 2011 while playing the aviation video game "Airport City," before meeting in person two years later
