Wedding Message From Afghanistan: Deployed Pilot Films Midair Speech For Brother's Nuptials (VIDEO)

Brandon Krivohlavy had set the date for his Austin, Texas wedding and unfortunately, his brother -- a military pilot currently deployed in Afghanistan -- wasn't going to be able to make it. Fortunately, the pilot came up with a way to take part in the ceremony: by filming a midair wedding message from Afghanistan.

In the heartwarming video, posted to Youtube Tuesday, the pilot uses note cards to deliver his short speech. Krivohlavy, who also posted the video on Reddit, shared the special wedding message during his ceremony this weekend.

"Everyone in the room was either crying or completely speechless. It was a very moving moment for everyone there," Krivohlavy commented on Reddit.

The pilot is not the first to deliver a wedding message from overseas. As reports, Army Staff Sgt. Jason Balzarini, who was also deployed in Afghanistan at the time, signed onto Skype at 4:30 a.m. in January to deliver the best man speech for his friend's wedding.

Watch the heartwarming message from Afghanistan for yourself in the video above.
