June 20, 2009--Bride and groom--and wedding party--seem to walk on air during the world's first weightless wedding, shown 60,000 feet (18,000 meters) over the Gulf of Mexico in a specially equipped Boeing 727.

New Yorkers Noah Fulmor (fourth from left), Erin Finnegan, and their dozen guests spent U.S. $60,000 for about an hour in zero gravity, achieved by the plane's roller coaster-like flight path, according to CBS News.
