Couple marry 180 feet up

A harness-clad couple who exchanged wedding vows 180 feet above a Florida casino surrounded by 10 guests and members of the media say they're just spontaneous.

Mike Villanuera, 43, and Jeanine Repa, 40, tied the knot while hoisted in the air by a crane as part of Dinner in the Sky, a service of the Events in the Sky company that also suspended a table and 22 seats in the air for the happy couple and their guests, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Monday.

We're pretty spontaneous, Villanuera said. Our friends said that we were crazy.

The Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek offers the suspended-in-air events at $500 a plate.
