A man who ran as an independent candidate to become Iowa’s governor was the groom whose wedding balloon crashed in California.
Narcisse was one of a dozen people in a hot air balloon for his wedding Monday, January 7, 2013 when things suddenly went wrong.
Immediately after the couple sealed their vows with a kiss, the balloon crashed.
“It was beautiful and then we just kept trying to land and couldn’t. And the next thing you know, we’re crashing into a fence and fell on a tree. I said, ‘Jesus’ about four or five thousand times,” Narcisse said.
One woman suffered minor injuries in the crash.
The wedding celebration continued with dinner – on the ground.
