SEATTLE -- A Seattle couple said their "I dos" Friday as they flew from Los Angeles to Seattle on an Alaska Airlines flight.

Kristy and Jim Larsen began their marriage 35,000 feet in the air so Kristy could grant three wishes to her mom, Billie Jo, who's fighting stage 4 cancer, according to KCPQ.

Kristy, who is a flight attendant for the airline, said, "My mother is the world to me ... anything to make my mom happy."

Billie Jo said she has always wanted to see where her daughter works, where she lives and, most of all, always wanted to see her marry a man she loves.

"She wanted to come out and see where we were at because she knew I was happy out here in Seattle ... " Kristy Larsen told KCPQ. "And that really it really touched me."

So, in front of a plane full of passengers, Kristy made her way down a non-traditional aisle and married the love of her life 35,000 feet in the air.
