Wedding Space Race

Check out this photo of the inside of Branson’s ship:
Doesn’t it look like the inside of the TARDIS?
Richard Branson said in 2008 that he would marry a couple in space.
It looks like “SpaceShipTwo” might start running some flights later this year, attached this plane, VMS Eve:
I wonder if Branson will beat Cindy Cashman’s space vehicle? Ms. Cashman plans to get marred in 2010 in space.
At once point a tabloid-like British blog mistakenly thought Branson had married Noah and I. A single google search could have clarified that our millionaire officiant was Richard Garriott and our wedding was within earth’s atmosphere.
Our wedding may have sounded outlandish to some people, but I don’t think everyone – the media included – realized how just much we were engaged in a wedding space race! My dress was designed for Space Wedding, a Japanese company looking to sell low-earth orbit weddings starting in 2011. Rocketplane is taking reservations for their $250,000 flights – it looks like their webpage was redesigned recently.
Our zero gravity wedding was incredible, but you can expect quite a few more floating brides in the next three years!
