It was a wedding that was remembered by Pam and Jeremy Salda.

PHOENIX – A couple from Oklahoma City was supposed to have a wedding in Vegas, but when their flight was canceled, they decided to get married high in the sky.

Pam Salda never thought that so many strangers on the Southwest flight would be involved in her wedding. But now she and her husband Jeremy Salda had no other choice.

“It was just cute and special and everything just fell into place so easily,” Pam said.

The couple met at Bumble in the first summer of the pandemic.

“I met Jeremy on my first date with Bumble and I knew he was alone. “I knew it,” said Pam.

From there grew the love of the Oklahoma City couple. They got engaged a year and a half later in Cancun.

They plan to have a wedding in Cabo in May, but had to get a wedding certificate in the US to make it official.

When TSA waived its mandate for masks, they decided it was the perfect opportunity to fly to Vegas this weekend and tie the knot.

“We were just going to jump out there. You know, come back in a couple of days. Don’t tell anyone to make the holiday fun. And the boy did it a little differently, ”Pam said.

The couple arrived at the airport in wedding clothes to get to Vegas as soon as they got off the plane. But the flight was canceled during a transfer to Texas, making it unlikely their timely arrival in Vegas.

The passenger, who had tickets for the canceled flight, found himself in the rank of minister. He agreed to hold the ceremony. From there, the three rushed to the airport to make the next flight to Vegas. But because of the transplant to Phoenix it became clear that they were not going to hold the wedding ceremony in time.

“Pam says,“ I don’t think we’re going to make it. But, you know, we can just decide to do it right here on the plane. ” And he [the pilot] like, “Really?” And she said, “Yeah, and he said, okay, let’s do it,” Jeremy said.

So the two said “I’m right” when they crossed Arizona instead, which was a memorable moment for all participants.

“One of the passengers had this little 6×9 spiral notebook. And she tore out the pages she wrote down and said, “Here’s your guestbook,” Jeremy said.

Eventually they got to Vegas. Now they have an even better story.
