If you’ve ever dreamed of having a wedding in space, you’ve come to the right place. A space wedding is now a reality thanks to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. This unique venue offers wedding expertise and management services. Many of the vendors you’ll need for your wedding will be available from this venue, so you can get the job done without a hitch.
Ekaterina Dmitriev, a Russian-American citizen, married Yuri Malenchenko via video link, while she was at NASA’s Houston headquarters. Her husband, a Russian cosmonaut, was on the International Space Station at the time. The pair even had a bow tie to mark the occasion.
A space wedding is an unusual event, but it does happen! In 2001, a Russian cosmonaut married a U.S. citizen while on a space mission. Although the couple’s wedding was not official, it was considered a symbolic space event. The couple were congratulated and pledged their lives to one another. They also decided to hold a religious ceremony in Russia in June. Their choice of church was symbolic, as it was a church with traditional Russian architecture. Dmitriev also thanked everyone who had helped organize the wedding. While he wasn’t present, the Russian space agency officials were disapproving of the couple’s plans, but this was not the end of the story.
After their space wedding, many feared that Malenchenko’s career would be over, but he went on two more ISS missions afterward. Although the Russian Air Force is now against space weddings, the Russian Space Agency’s rules allow cosmonauts to marry foreign nationals. After all, they are military officers, so they have to follow strict guidelines. It would also be impossible for them to marry foreign nationals if they didn’t obtain the necessary permission from the Russian government.
Space weddings are a relatively new concept, but the idea is an exciting one. If you have the money and the desire, Space Wedding can be an unforgettable event that will last a lifetime. The ceremony will take place 100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. The ceremony will be broadcast live via the internet on the original websites from the spacecraft.
Once the venue is completed, Chapel of the Flowers will be able to offer space weddings to couples. In addition, they’ll be able to offer a live broadcast option to guests, so they can attend the ceremony live. This will be the ultimate destination wedding. And unlike Earth weddings, the chapel on Mars won’t require any building permits.
In addition to space, consider the accessibility of the space. If you’re planning an indoor ceremony, make sure the lighting is adequate and that there are enough power outlets. If the wedding will be held outdoors, make sure the space is wheelchair accessible, as not all guests can climb stairs.
