Navy Sailor Gets Hitched at the Airport

I think it is something frequent fliers often joke about, but someone actually had a wedding at the airport, complete with a reception in Baggage Claim.

From the Washington Post:

A U.S. Navy sailor told his high school sweetheart he wanted to marry her the moment he laid eyes on her after an 11-month deployment off the coast of war-torn Syria.

Seaman Apprentice Dylan Ruffer got his wish Tuesday shortly after stepping off a plane at Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Click through to the story and pictures.  They weren’t expecting much, but got donations that went above what they were expecting.

I think if I were getting married in the airport, I’d chose to have my reception on the tarmac under a Dreamliner 😛  How about you?
