The Incredible Story of How a Couple Got Married on a Runway at Detroit's Metro Airport

October 7, 2013 at 10:03 AM | by | Comments (0)

It's not every day you see a wedding at an airport, but they do happen. Hey, those chapels are there for more than just a few minutes of pre-flight prayer. Still, it's even rarer to have an entire wedding ceremony out on the airport tarmac itself. In fact, it may have only happened once: last week, at Detroit-Metro Airport.

The nuptials of Joe and Ilona occurred smack dab on runway 9L at DTW, their "I dos" delivered with a soundtrack of jet engine noise as aircraft continued to take off and land on a nearby runway.

A wedding this like may never happen again, and for the details on why exactly the couple chose Detroit Airport for their special day, and how this all came to be, we spoke with the best man, also the Airport Authority's Public Affairs Manager, Scott W.:

Something may be in the water in the South Pacific with another mile-high wedding in the region. First we saw Air New Zealand support the country's newest marriage equality law, and now Fiji Airways is breaking records for a similar wedding in the sky.

Wedding bells can now ring anywhere Royal Caribbean ships sail with the introduction of onboard nuptials. Leave the details to the experts on the ship and your big day will be just as nice as on terra firma.

Where to Celebrate a Same-Sex Marriage in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington

November 7, 2012 at 11:19 AM | by | Comment (1)

After (probably) staying up late last night and biting off all of your fingernails, Election 2012 finally came to an end with the result that there won't be any packing up going on in the White House.

Here at Jaunted, we always look at the travel angle and, of course, there was a huge issue to watch: that of gay marriage. Four states— Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington—had a proposal on the ballot for the legalization of same-sex marriage. In all four states it passed and now happy couples of all sorts can say their "I dos" in each (not to mention a few others). This ultimately opens up the possibility of gay marriage travel and honeymoon travel. And voila, you have the travel angle.

The Skywriting That Took New York City's Beautiful Day by Storm

May 21, 2012 at 10:58 AM | by | Comments (0)

In you case you missed it on our Instagram feed yesterday, a single sentence of skywriting appeared above Manhattan on Sunday afternoon and, in the clear blue sky, spelled out "Christine Hall Will U Marry Me."

Immediately Twitter and Instagram went crazy with news and images of the skywriting, as it could be spotted from as far as Riverside Park on the west side of the Manhattan, to where we stood in Astoria, Queens (cause you know we look up at the sound of any airplane engine). The entire stretch of dot-matrix cloud letters could be best read from the middle of Central Park, where it seems the couple were relaxing on what was, weather-wise, perhaps the nicest New York day yet.

Hawaii Now One Major Step Closer to Becoming Gay Wedding Hot Spot of 2012

January 2, 2012 at 12:05 PM | by | Comments (0)

Happy New Year! Also, happy year that more same-sex couples will achieve equal (or at least equal-er) rights. Just yesterday, January 1, two more US states switched to legally recognizing and performing civil unions. These are Delaware and Hawaii. For the moment, let's focus on the latter.

Hawaii is the only US state west of the Mississippi River to allow same-sex civil unions. None have gone so far as marriage (the California Prop 8 debacle came closest) and what this means for gay couples is that their union—not just the honeymoon—can also happen in the Aloha State.

According to The Baltimore Sun/KTLA, the turning of the calendar immediately coincided with the law going in effect:

Love them or hate them, everyone has an opinion on the Kardashian family and their hit E! reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Truth be told, we only tune in when the whole Kardash-klan is packing up like twenty trunks to head out on vacation.

And now an announcement of immense importance: the big family trip this season was to Bora Bora in French Polynesia and those episodes—a 3-part series culminating in Kris' marriage proposal to Kim—begin airing this weekend.
