Subways riders in New York City are used to being interrupted with announcements, but they’re rarely as romantic as what happened on the N train Friday.
Tatyana Sandler, 25, and Hector Irakliotis, 26, tied the knot as the N train crossed the Manhattan Bridge, the New York Daily News reports.
Irakliotis boarded the train first with his groomsmen, inviting other passengers to stay but to please move to the other side of the car. His groomsmen decorated the seats and poles with ribbons before Sandler, in a white wedding dress, boarded the train with her maid of honor.
While the best man played John Mayer’s “City Love” from an iPhone, Sandler walked down “the aisle.” The couple chose the unconventional location because, like many New York residents, they spent so much time traveling on it during their relationship.
“We’ve been through a lot. Good times, bad times, and a lot of the good times have taken place on the train,” Irakliotis said. “Confessions of love, reconciliations, goofy, ridiculous conversations — the whole spectrum. In New York, you spend so much time on the train, we thought why not?”
