Couple Orchestrates a Subway Wedding on the N Train

There is no shortage of weird things you see on the subway, but most of us can never say we have seen a wedding subway until now. 26-year-old Hector Irakliotis and 25-year-old Tatyana Sandler setup the wedding ceremony on the train, complete with witnesses, an officiant, bridesmaids and wedding attire. In the video, Hector gets on the train first and explains everything that is going to happen, then Tatyana joins him at the 36th Ave stop in Brooklyn. The couple were officially pronounced husband and wife just as the train crossed the Manhattan Bridge. Gothamist reports:

Sandler added it was the perfect setting for them: “I’m originally from Ukraine, and each time we’d come back here, I’d say to Hector, ‘It doesn’t feel like home until I see the skyline as we’re crossing the bridge.’ And he remembered that. He planned it out specifically so that we’d see the skyline as we were married,” she explained.
