Lynley Bendall, left, and Ally Wanikau, right, are married by celebrant Kim Jewel Elliott Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, on a flight that left from Queenstown, New Zealand. A law change allowed same-sex couples to marry in New Zealand for the first time Monday. The couple celebrated the legalization of gay marriage in New Zealand by getting hitched in a plane at 39,000 feet (11,900 meters). Bendall and Wanikau celebrated their wedding in the air after they won a promotion by national carrier Air New Zealand. (AP Photo/Nick Perry) less
