If you are looking for an unusual wedding idea, consider a Space Wedding. It’s a ceremony in space, and takes place in the distant future. The best thing about it is that you and your partner will be able to marry in front of the planet’s satellite, Spaceship Earth. You can watch the whole event via live streaming or watch the ceremony on a video link.
A Space Wedding is not a new concept. In fact, it has been a popular theme for many years. But it’s the first to take place in space. One of the longest-serving cosmonauts, Malenchenko, wore a traditional flight suit to mark the occasion. After completing five space missions, he logged 827 days and nine hours in orbit, a feat that made him the second-longest-serving cosmonaut.
While he was still in orbit, Malenchenko married a U.S. citizen named Ekaterina Dmitriev. They met at a party celebrating the first manned space flight. Although they had not renounced their American citizenship, they had a marriage license issued by the Russian government.
When Yuri and Ekaterina decided to get married, they wanted something out of this world. So they got engaged at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. At the time, they had both moved to Florida for jobs in the space industry. Jared and Brooke also had a “out of this world” wedding at Walt Disney World.
Once Malenchenko was done with his space mission, he returned to Earth for two months before he resumed his training for another ISS mission. He was scheduled to return to the ISS by the end of October. During this time, he was able to attend his wedding. However, he did not postpone the ceremony, as he had a mission to complete. This means he is now the second-longest-serving commutator in space history.
As the groom stood on the ISS, the bride stood a few steps behind him. Upon her arrival, she entered the room to the sound of David Bowie’s “Absolute Beginners.” She then walked down the aisle to the wedding ring. Her bridal gown was a Disney 2022 Snow White Bridal Gown Platinum Collection. Other special touches included a giant fruit bowl that displayed the forms of a space shuttle and space station.
Guests were impressed by the fruit bowl. And they enjoyed Italian and Russian delicacies at the reception.
There were also several other small touches that made this space wedding one of a kind. For example, the groom was wearing a bow tie, which was delivered to the ISS on a Progress cargo spacecraft. Also, the ring he gave to his bride was a replica of her own.
Another notable touch was the life-size cutout of the groom that greeted guests at the reception. Moreover, it was designed by two people, Jeremy Johnson and Julie Peterson, who combined their tastes from different cultures to create a unique experience.
