On June 20th, 2009, my fiancée and I became the first couple married in zero gravity (as far as we know).

When we started talking about marriage, Noah joked that we should have our wedding “in space” or “on mars”.  Although most girls would take this to mean Noah didn’t want to get married, I knew he was sincere, and that this was a serious request.  We decided marrying on the zero gravity plane would be a good compromise.

As kids, we both wanted to be astronauts – at least until we discovered the extensive higher-level mathematics skills involved.  Erin attended space camp at the Michigan Space Center, and Noah volunteered at his local planetarium.

We hope that by having the first zero gravity wedding, we can promote the new wave of private space travel and space tourism.  We hope that we can one day experience space flight and perhaps make a small contribution towards space exploration.
