All this were planned suddenly by Kristy herself when her mother expressed her desire to meet the couple. She was given a 11-day clearance to fly by doctors after gradual improvements by ongoing treatments. Here worked Kristy’s brain and a magical plan was made immediately. While talking with Buzzfeed she said, “Then while I was driving home from a redeye, it hit me — maybe Alaska will let us get married on the plane.
