Couple weds in 1st weightless wedding

June 23, 2009 1:13:23 PM PDT
A New York couple married over the weekend in what is being touted as the world's first weightless wedding. Noah Fulmor and Erin Finnegan exchanged vows in zero gravity.

The service was provided by the Zero Gravity Corporation of Orlando, Florida, which describes itself as "the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights."

On Saturday, the company took the couple up on its modified Boeing 727-200 aircraft, which made a series of parabolic arcs in the atmosphere to simulate weightlessness for 30-second intervals.

"Just astounding, just amazing," Fulmor said.

It was a fitting ceremony for Fulmor and Finnegan, both of whom have a longtime fascination with space travel.
