The world has seen a number of space weddings and one couple recently made history by getting married in orbit. In July, cosmonaut Sergei Malenchenko, a Russian citizen, married his Ukrainian wife Ekaterina via satellite video link from orbit. The couple got married in Texas, but Yuri was actually on the International Space Station. While the two were separated by thousands of miles, they were still able to exchange vows, and the entire ceremony was broadcast live on NASA’s website. The two were married July 17; however, the Russian Aerospace Agency attempted to delay the wedding until he was back on Earth. This posed a problem for the couple as a Soviet-era rule required military officers to seek permission before marrying a foreigner. But even though the Russian Aerospace Agency gave their blessing, it has been noted that other cosmonauts would be
The couple’s experience has been hailed as an extraordinary feat of technology. It isn’t just about the beauty of the ceremony itself. The wedding takes place 100 kilometers in space. Couples are fired into space by rocket and exchange vows with up to three witnesses. Their ceremony will last for several minutes, with most of the ceremony taking place before takeoff. The ceremony is expected to cost approximately 240 million yen and will be broadcast live from the space station.
The space wedding was classified a “private family conference.” However, it did not affect the mission of Yuri Malenchenko, who spent almost two years in orbit. His space flight made him number two in the list of longest-serving cosmonauts. He spent 827 days and nine hours in space. Although Yuri has a prestigious award from Russia for his accomplishments, his wedding owes a lot of his fame to his space wedding.
Although space weddings haven’t become a common practice in the United States, they’ve become a very popular tourist attraction in the past decade. In 2001, American millionaire Dennis Tito paid 20 million dollars to the Russian space agency to have a space wedding. It was a memorable event for both the couple and the guests, and the space station was an incredible backdrop for the ceremony. And even if the wedding was not held in space, it was still possible to have an event of a lifetime in outer space.
A space wedding is the ultimate dream for those who want to create an event unlike any other. The vast array of locations available for space weddings means that you can have a unique wedding that will be unforgettable. There are plenty of unique venues available to host a space wedding, but few can rival the majesty of a Mars wedding. The space wedding will require no permits and will be an unforgettable celebration. When you’re planning your wedding, think about what you’ll do to make it a reality. You can even plan the event in advance.
A raw space venue is an unusual venue. A venue that does not offer traditional wedding services is considered a raw space. A museum, arts center, or historical property can be ideal venues. They will often charge lower fees than a traditional wedding venue, but you should still expect to spend more. You might have to rent a portable restroom, and it will add up fast!
