The SAS love flight takes off today, with Efva Attling rings

As already mentioned some days ago, the first same-sex wedding in the air is going to take place today on board of a SAS flight from Stockholm to New York.

The couple, Aleks and Shantu, were chosen on the online contest SAS organised via the “Love is in the air” website.  The couple got more than 80.000 votes. It was initially planned to choose one couple, but in the end, SAS, seeing the huge number of votes and participation, decided to choose a further couple: Ewa and Gosia, who will also get married on the air today.

Efva Attling designed the wedding rings for the three couples, which you can see here.
