COLONIE, N.Y. (AP) — A military couple has enlisted the help of a New York airport's staff to get married while awaiting flights to their respective military assignments.
The Times Union of Albany reports that Caitlin Murray and Sean Whitney's spur-of-the-moment wedding occurred Thursday in the observation deck at Albany International Airport. The soldiers, both privates first class, decided to get hitched as they awaited separate flights, hers to North Carolina and his to St. Louis.
The couple asked airport employees for help, and they responded by getting the town's marriage officer to show up. The airport's chief executive officer served as witness.
After being declared man and wife, the couple kissed while two dozen strangers and airport workers applauded.
Murray and Whitney met last March at an Army recruiting office.
