Video: using a drone at a church wedding?

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 07/25/16

A short time ago, I posted on Facebook this little item, about the first US-approved commercial drone delivery. (It happened last week. It was from 7-11 and involved donuts. Enough said.)

A priest commented that he heard about a church wedding recently that used a drone.

That led me on a quick Google search, which led to lots of photography studios offering to incorporate drones for wedding videos. (I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of that in Catholic weddings. Consider yourself forewarned.)

My search also uncovered the curiosity below.

I don’t know the context or location—or if it was Catholic. But at a key moment in the ceremony, the wedding rings were delivered by a remote-controlled toy helicopter.
