Couple get married on Southwest flight to Las Vegas


Love is in the air.

This week, a couple tied the knot on a flight from the Southwest after their Las Vegas wedding hit a snag.

A Facebook post from the airline said Pam and Jeremy found their Las Vegas wedding jokes getting more serious, so the couple booked a flight for Sunday.

The couple, dressed for their wedding, flew from Oklahoma City to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to find their connection to Vegas had been cancelled.

As they were discussing the likelihood of them missing their wedding date, another traveler overheard them.

The traveler, Chris, an ordained minister, said he could marry Pam and Jeremy in Vegas, and the three rushed to Love Field airport in Dallas to get three tickets on the next Southwest flight.

As they boarded the flight, the captain noticed Pam’s wedding dress and asked her about it. She told him of the ever-changing plans and joked that they should get married on the flight.

“Let’s do it!” the captain responded, according to Southwest.

The flight crew put on toilet paper streamers and took out the snack mix. A flight attendant acted as bridesmaid and a photographer on the flight took pictures. Pam walked down the aisle, while passengers checked in on their phones. A notebook circulated to serve as a guest book for the couple.

“Congratulations to the newlyweds on a memorable in-flight wedding that neither our employees nor our passengers are likely to forget!” Southwest’s statement said.
