Chinese Wedding Ceremony Takes Place In Hot Air Balloons (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The blushing brides may have worn white, but in the heart of China's Shaanxi province, it was anything but a traditional wedding day.

As these stunning Getty photographs attest, 15 Chinese couples took to the highest of heights -- in beautiful hot air balloons -- to tie the knot high above the Daming Palace Ruins Park in the town of Xian.

The mass ceremony reportedly began at about 5 p.m. on Sunday, when the couples walked down a red carpet, hand in hand, to the strains of the traditional "Wedding March." They ascended into the air shortly after signing their marriage certificates.
