A space wedding is becoming a popular concept. The ceremony is held 100 km above Earth and is filmed live. The idea is made possible by companies such as Rocketplane, which designs and builds spacecraft. They will also allow couples to invite two more people, including a priest, to participate in the ceremony. The cost of these services is high, but they will create lifelong memories that will last forever.
Ekaterina Dmitriev, a cosmonaut from Russia, and her American husband, Yuri Malenchenko, a Russian cosmonaut, tied the knot on July 17, 2014. They married via video link from NASA’s Houston headquarters. Malenchenko had to obtain permission from Russian officials before marrying an American citizen, as Soviet-era rules dictated military officers cannot marry a foreigner. However, their wedding was approved. However, officials at the Russian Aerospace Agency said that other cosmonauts would not be able to marry foreigners.
For the couple planning a space wedding, it is imperative that they find a venue that can accommodate a large number of people. There are a few different types of wedding venues, but the Mars chapel is the most unique. It has a chapel that is nearly the size of a football stadium, so it would be a great place to exchange vows. Moreover, this unique venue won’t require any building permits, which would make it an ideal option for weddings.
The reception was an Italian-Russian wedding with food and drink from both countries. A life-size cut-out of the groom greeted guests at the reception. The bride-to-be, Malenchenko, is a Russian air force colonel who spent four months aboard the space station Mir in 1994. She then returned to Russia to prepare for an upcoming space mission. In the middle of the ceremony, the cosmonaut proposed to his girlfriend via telephone.
While natural lighting is not a viable option for an industrial space, artificial lighting can soften the lighting. In addition, you can hire performers to set the mood for the reception. The rawness of a space makes it essential to consider the guest experience when planning a space wedding. It can be a challenge to plan a wedding in a space like this, but it’s well worth the effort.
For an indoor ceremony, you’ll need adjustable lighting and power outlets. The venue should also be accessible. Not all guests are mobile and may have difficulty climbing stairs. If you’re planning a ceremony in a rented space, make sure there are accessible restrooms available. You can even hire executive restroom trailers to provide the guests with temporary restrooms.
If you’re planning an evening reception, food stations are becoming popular. They allow your guests to try different cuisines and create a unique experience. Jeremy Johnson and Julie Peterson hosted their reception at the James J. Hill Library in St. Paul, Minnesota, where they created a unique experience. They combined the tastes of several different cultures and used the space to celebrate their marriage. In addition to providing guests with delicious foods and beverages, you can also provide a fun favor. A s’mores kit is a good option.
