Fly Me to the Moon... and say vows on the way?

I am an astrophysicist... so when this article from Brietbart.com was sent to me I was intrigued! How cool would it be to be married in space?! And where do you get the marriage license from? :)
Fly me to the Moon: Japan firm offers weddings in space

A Japanese firm on Tuesday began accepting reservations for couples who really want to make the big leap -- by blasting into space to exchange their wedding vows.

Each happy couple will spend 240 million yen (2.3 million dollars) for the ceremony in a small space vessel, which will shoot up 100 kilometres (60 miles) into the sky.

During the hour-long flight, the couple will spend several minutes in zero gravity during which they will exchange their vows with up to three guests present, said Taro Katsura, a spokesman for Japanese firm First Advantage.

The couple would perform most of the ceremony before takeoff "so that they can say their vows and look out the window," Katsura said.

The firm is offering the space marriages in a tie-up with US-based Rocket Plane, which will conduct the flights from a private airport in Oklahoma.

From the spaceship, the couple would probably be able to see the outline of the Earth although they will not be far enough into space to allow complete floating, Katsura said.

Despite launching the offer in Japan, the company said it expected most of its customers to be from China or Arab Gulf nations. There are currently no plans to start the space weddings in the United States, Katsura said.

Space tourism has been seeing a boom of sorts since 2001, when American millionaire businessman Dennis Tito paid 20 million dollars to Russia's space agency to become the first person to pay his own ticket into space. ***************************************
So this strikes me as funny for a few reasons. Most rookies in space (even those who have gone through intense NASA training) get ill in zero-g. The KC-135 (big airplane) that they use for zero-g training and filming (Apollo 13 filmed in one - in 45 second intervals!!), is also "lovingly" referred to as the vomit comet... you can just imagine how this could be bad for a wedding!

Setting this aside, I emailed this article to some of my friends and family. And this (from my Maid of Honor) was the best response I have ever heard!

"space mountain is a much cheaper alternative ... and there's mickey mouse there"
I was rolling on the floor laughing - she knows me too well!!

Anyone out there have 2.3 million dollars worth of change floating in their couch that wants to cash it in for a space-age wedding?
