A couple in Tokyo said their "I dos" in a wedding ceremony officiated by a robot. If that's not enough, a new plane unveiled at an aviation show in Geneva will allow honeymooners and wealthy tourists to enjoy a luxurious journey without leaving the plane. It has marble floors, curved sofas and — on the ground — an open-air viewing deck.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

A couple in Tokyo said their I dos in a wedding ceremony officiated by a robot. The robot wore roses over plastic pigtails as it said please lift the bride's veil.

Plus, a new plane unveiled in an aviation show in Geneva will allow honeymooners and wealthy tourists to enjoy a luxurious journey without even leaving the plane. It's got marble floors, curved sofas, and once on the ground, an open-air viewing deck.

It's MORNING EDITION.
