COLONIE, N.Y. (January 4, 2013)--A military couple enlisted the help of a New York airport's staff to get married while they awaited flights to separate military assignments.
Caitlin Murray and Sean Whitney's spur-of-the-moment wedding was Thursday in the observation deck of Albany International Airport.
The two privates first class decided to get married as they awaited separate flights, hers to North Carolina and his to St. Louis.
The couple asked airport employees for help, and the staff responded by getting the town's marriage officer to show up.
The airport's chief executive officer served as witness.
After they were 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.
