Couple Marries Over the Phone

No wedding dress, no tuxedo or flowers..

A U-S soldier stationed in Afghanistan marries the woman of his dreams by proxy.

Kelly McMullen was there as the couple tied the knot thousands of miles apart.

Sarah brown has been waiting for this day for years...

He said, I can't wait to get married, and I can't wait to get married..

Maybe we should figure out a way to get married now!

Only problem...

The man of her dreams is thousands of miles away.

A combat medic in the army...

Specialist Randall Blake is serving a year tour in Afghanistan.

But they weren't going to let that get in the way.

It's just the two of us and the rest of the world.

Sarah didn't envision her dream wedding here...

At the county vital statistic office in placerville.

And she didn't imagine...

Randall's mother standing next to her as his power of attorney.

Retired chief petty officer William Schultz will marry them over the phone.

The two of you have come before me today to be united in marriage.

Now Randall, do you vow your love and devotion to Sarah?

I do.

In sickness and in health, for better of for worse, and whatever life may bring?

I do.

I now pronounce you married.


A proud soldier serving his country, now proud to be Sarah’s husband.

Sarah's a wonderful girl and I’m glad to have her be my daughter-in-law now.

God bless my daughter Sarah and we wish them years and years of happiness.

I am so excited to spend my life as Mrs. Blake!

Specialist Randall Blake will return home in December to see his bride.. face to face.
