Helicopter wedding!

Helicopter WeddingWhen I started working as an officiant, I never dreamed I’d have a day like today! The adventure began late last week when I got a call from George at Pacific Rotor Ways. He was searching for a wedding officiant to preside over a helicopter wedding! I couldn’t believe my luck in receiving this call. George gave me the groom’s contact info and I called him right way to discuss what exactly he needed, which turned out to be me!

Rev. Jon's Helicopter WeddingI admit that I was slightly skeptical that this would all come to pass, but I talked to the groom a couple of times over the weekend, and today I marked off one thing from my bucket list…a helicopter ride. It’s a wedding venue I highly recommend. After our chopper safety orientation, George strapped us all in and gently guided the beautiful burgundy aircraft into the skies.

We headed from the Burbank airport up and over North Hollywood, Studio City and thenHelicopter Wedding across the airspace above some incredible real estate in the Hollywood Hills. We sailed past the Getty Museum and approached the beach at Santa Monica. After a northern turn, we buzzed along the Malibu scenery. Spectacular! Rakesh and Chiragi recited their vows and exchanged rings over the Malibu pier, then we soared over Pepperdine and Topanga Canyon before George aimed our flying wedding back to Burbank.

Los Angeles Helicopter WeddingI can’t thank this beautiful couple enough for the honor of being their officiant. It was truly a beautiful hour in the skies, a moment I’ll always cherish. And thanks also to George for safely piloting us over the Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Malibu landscapes.
