Groom surprised & married at an airport – why not “Up in the air?”

How would you feel to get married at an airport?  Is this a publicity stunt to promote the new film Up in the Air  starring George Clooney reminding the world that some people live their lives in airports? I guess this newly married couple would agree with the quote from this movie –  “To know me is to fly with me,” Clooney says. “This is where I live.”

Mumbled overhead airport announcements. And a few hundred weary strangers by your side.   Talk about a romantic wedding to remember, a Toledo man gets the surprise of his life from his fiance at a Texas airport.

A Texas woman said she celebrated the airport reunions and goodbyes of her long distance relationship by surprising her boyfriend with an airport wedding.  Robyn Moore says she and her fiance had spent half of their relationship in airports. So, what better place to get married?  Robyn Moore said she greeted her boyfriend, William Acosta, Monday at Corpus Christi International Airport with a camera and a wedding party ready to make good on the marriage license.  She greeted him, wearing a wedding gown and accessorized by a justice of the peace.

They said their “I do”s right there in the terminal, surrounded by some family and the travelers who were nearby. Official photos were taken near the Christmas tree at a security checkpoint.  The two had already picked up a marriage license last week, with the idea of getting married before the end of the year — except they didn’t know where or when.

“When I walked up and saw her, it just took my breath away,” Acosta said. “She looks really beautiful.”

Moore said she and Acosta met while she was living in Dallas and he visited the city for business. She said she is now planning to move to Toledo, Ohio, to live with her new husband, who teaches computer science at a university in the city.

“I’ve got the best Christmas present in the whole world,” Moore said, “this is what every bride-to-be wants.” Acosta, who says he was speechless but thrilled, wore a sweater and jeans while the two exchanged vows.

It would have been nice if ImprovEverywhere had been there to give them a surprise wedding reception.
