If you’ve ever wanted a wedding like no other, a space wedding may be right for you. Though such ceremonies aren’t yet available in the United States, space tourism has exploded since the Russian space agency began accepting reservations in 2001. The ceremony will be performed in zero gravity, and the couple will exchange vows 100 kilometers up in the sky. A space wedding can be quite expensive, costing up to 240 million yen.
The first space wedding occurred in 1996, when Ekaterina Dmitriev married Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko. The couple got married through a satellite video link from NASA headquarters in Houston, Texas, to the space station. Malenchenko’s best man played a wedding march, and the ceremony lasted for two hours. However, many experts predicted that the couple would never get married in space, but they still tied the knot and had a happy marriage.
Although the couple hoped to get married in space, their plan was met with disapproval from Russian space officials. However, the wedding was eventually set for June. The couple chose a church in Yaroslavl, a city north of Moscow that boasts traditional Russian church architecture. A Russian friend said that the couple’s children loved the idea of an orbital wedding. Despite the disapproval of the Russian space officials, the ceremony was still celebrated in a religious ceremony on earth in June.
Malenchenko was the first person to tie the knot in outer space. He was born in 1961 and spent over two years in space. He is currently number two on the list of longest space cosmonauts, having clocked 827 days and nine hours in space. He is also the owner of Russia’s highest award, the Hero of the Russian Federation. In addition to being a cosmonaut, Malenchenko owes his fame to his space wedding.
A space wedding at a museum is a unique way to celebrate your union in an unconventional setting. It allows you to have a ceremony with a backdrop that will be etched into your memories for a lifetime. There is an incredible amount of history to explore in this location, and it’s the perfect place to celebrate your special day. The venue also accommodates large parties as well as small ceremonies. It also has its own space, and it can be a beautiful space for a space wedding.
While space weddings have been popular for years, this new venue may be the ultimate destination for your dream nuptial. A chapel on Mars is being designed by an Earth-bound architect, and will be kept a secret until the venue is ready for its public unveiling. The chapel will be as beautiful as its destination – and it won’t even require building permits. If you’d like to tie the knot in space, there are several ways to do so.
