What could be more fitting for a Southwest Airlines pilot than to marry his spouse in the sky?
Inflight Marriage on Southwest Airlines
First Officer York Zentner met his future wife, Sabrina Solesbee, at a Southwest Airlines ticket counter in Las Vegas. They had met online, but met at the airport for their first in-person date.
As they dated, Sabrina would often join York on his trips if she could get the day off, allowing them to explore the county as they got to know each other better. It was love at first sight and York popped the question to Sabrina onboard a private flight the pair took over Utah.
Sabrina said yes! When it came time to plan the wedding, both agreed the most logical place to hold it would be at 40,000 feet above the ground onboard a Southwest Airlines flight.
Thus, with 15 friends and family onboard, York and Sabrina were married onboard a Southwest Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City. Although York is based in Las Vegas, the couple plan to live in Utah and because the plane was over Utah during the ceremony (officiated by another Southwest Airlines pilot and friend of York’s) the two signed their marriage certificate in Utah.
Here are some pictures and video from the onboard wedding:
Congrats to York and Sabrina!
