A young couple in New York City decided they spent so much time on the subway they might as well get married there.

So Hector Irakliotis and Tatyana Sandler exchanged vows Friday on the N train as it crossed from Brooklyn into Manhattan.

The New York Daily News reports that the 26-year-old groom boarded first with his groomsmen, who set about decorating the poles and seats with white ribbons.

The bride, 25, and her maid of honor got on several stops later.

An interfaith chaplain performed the ceremony as the train went over the Manhattan Bridge. Riders applauded as the couple were pronounced husband and wife.

The groom told the newspaper that he and Sandler chose their unconventional wedding venue because they spent so much of their courtship on the subway.
