They want to marry mid air! That too on Valentine’s Day! They realized it with the help of a club which organizes balloon shows in Latvia. As many as 50 couples have tied the knot in the air and set a world record of mid-air marriage on the V-Day.
Fifty couples in 30 balloons rose into the sky Sunday during the Love Cup festival near the southeastern city of Jekabpils, watched by thousands of spectators but the balloons were hitched to cars because it was snowing at the time, impeding them from rising higher than some 15 meters. It wasn’t immediately clear if the ceremony would qualify for an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest airborne wedding in hot air balloons.
