A man recently proposed to his girlfriend on a flight – then married her on the plane!
Jurgen Bogner and Nathaly Eiche departed from Vienna as partners and landed in Athens as husband and wife on their honeymoon.
The two-hour flight was passing by normally enough, until a choir singing Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” appeared. Bogner then got on his knee and proposed to Eiche. After she accepted, the surprises continued, as Bogner then produced rings, wedding outfits, witnesses and an officiant for a marriage ceremony.
The bride was walked down the airplane aisle to the strings of a violin, holding a bouquet of white roses. The couple were married at 35,000 feet. Blogger Tatjana Catic recorded the proceeding through her social media channels, including videos of parts of the ceremony on her Instagram.
Austrian Airlines knew of Bogner’s plan, and helped him carry it through, even providing a wedding cake for him and his new wife.
