This Guy Planned a Proposal and Wedding All in One Day - And All on an Airplane.

How We Met

We met in 2006 at a convention for investment banking and insurances. Nathaly was dressed up as an angel as a hostess for one of the events. I immediately had to approach her and ask her for a date – she said yes :)

Afterwards, Nathaly left for a couple of years to Austria to study abroad. We still stayed in contact and when she came back in 2011, I didn’t waste any time asking her out again. That was December 3rd, 2011 and we’ve been together ever since.

How He Asked

On August 3rd I made my biggest wish come true. – I married my Nathaly. It was not a normal proposal OR wedding. For me this had to be something absolutely special, so I planned the world’s most charming proposal.

I didn’t only propose to my girlfriend 30,000 feet in the air,

but I also married her right away in the Austrian Airlines plane with over 200 passengers on board.

The planning:  

First of all I had to convince Austria’s biggest airline company – Austrian Airlines – to help me with the most charming wedding proposal ever. The airline was absolutely keen on the idea and supported me to the fullest. I also work for WARDA Network, a digital advertising agency, and asked my colleagues for their support in this major event.

The planning was not easy, as everything had to be kept a big secret. But in the end I made it. I even involved Nathaly’s best friend Petra in the plan. Without Nathaly knowing what was really going on, Petra invited her on a business trip to Athens.

On that exact flight I had both our parents, and even a choir!

The 211 passengers on the fully booked plane were absolutely overwhelmed by this extraordinary flight.

Countless passengers shared this event on several social media channels and congratulated my newly married wife and myself on our marriage.

From the ground staff to the crew on board, everyone was in on the secret. Countless cameras were placed all over to record everything, so that in the end my bride and I will get a video of the most beautiful day in our lives.

Already on the way to the airport the cab was equipped with cameras, which filmed the “bride to be” on her way. Additionally to that there were also several surprises at the airport, which are also captured in the video. See our instagram here!
