COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

On the eve of Valentine's Day, today's History Journal photo is of a couple who took their love to a new level – in more than one sense of the word.

On June 22, 1948, Robert E. Ehresman and Florence Brandt said their vows in an airplane several thousand feet above Allen County.

Included in the wedding party were Jim Kelley, manager of Kelley's Flying Service at Myers Field; Lulu Mills and Donald Caley. The Rev. William R. Addis presided.
