A Wedding in the Sky

10 of 13

The Concierge: Richard Lara, Westin Buckhead, Atlanta

The Arrangement: Westin concierge Lara (now at the InterContinental Buckhead) followed through on an unusual strange request for two old high school sweethearts: they wanted to exchange vows in midair during a parachute jump over their alma mater, Pebblebrook High. “We chartered a Cessna from a local field and hired two videographers to film it,” says Lara. “All went well. Vows were swapped, they landed safely on the football field, all caught on camera. Problem was, moments after landing authorities arrived to arrest them for urban skydiving without a permit.” The couple was eventually released with a citation.
