"I Michael, take you Renee to be my wife, my partner in life and my travel companion when I become a Rapid Rewards member today, tomorrow and forever."

This bride took walking down the aisle to new heights - literally - after getting married aboard a Southwest Airlines flight cruising at 36,000 feet!

The couple met each other four years ago, and this weekend decided to make their relationship last forever. Michael and Renee reportedly got on the Baltimore bound plane in Las Vegas already dressed in their gown and tuxedo. To the surprise of passengers onboard the cross-country flight, the bride walked down the aisle and tied the knot with her groom with the pilot officiating the ceremony over the intercom system. 

Fellow passenger-turned-wedding videographer Skylee Campbell says the flight attendants helped pull off the high flying affair, and passengers shared their well wishes and marriage advice on napkins before the exchanging of vows. 

After Michael and Rene became husband and wife, there was even dancing, despite the limited cabin space, back down the aisle!
