On Monday, December 6th, weddings for one gay couple from Germany – Aleksandar Mijatovic and Shantu Bhattacherjee – and one lesbian couple from Poland, – Ewa Tomaszewicz and Gosia Rawińska – took place on SAS Airlines flight SK903 traveling from Stockholm to New York.
The couples were winners in a wedding and honeymoon-package contest hosted by SAS and a variety of partners in the travel industry. I was honored to be on the history-making wedding flight on assignment to write an article about the event that will appear on msnbc.com. In the meantime, here are some photos from the day.
Congratulations to everyone involved with this very special in-flight wedding.
