ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque couple Lorisa Silva and Leslie Bordeau decided to take their love to new heights Saturday morning by saying their “I Dos” in a Rainbow Ryder Hot Air Balloon.
“So we thought it would just be nice and it would be special because it's different,” said Leslie.
With COVID-19 restrictions grounding plans for a big wedding, the couple decided a small one in the sky would be perfect.
“We don't have to worry about how many people. We have just enough that's allowed to be together with the current situation,” Lorisa said.
The special moment when the couple exchanged their vows was captured on camera with their close family members by their side.
It was a celebration of love—and a much-need escape—while floating away from the worries and troubles caused by the pandemic on the ground below.
“This is kind of a diamond in the rough, I guess you can say, where it's a moment we get to have with everything that's going on, that at least it is a plus or positive,” Lorisa said.
“It's been tough for everybody. Fortunately we met and I've had her and it's been one of the best years I've had,” Leslie said.
Although it wasn’t the traditional walk down the aisle, the couple’s ride in the sky will be an experience they’ll remember forever.
