Licensed pilot Anthony Bordignon and his girlfriend Katherine headed out in a two-seater plane this past February for a peaceful flight. While his GoPro camera was recording on the dash, pilot Anthony Bordignon faked an in-flight emergency before asking Katherine to marry him. Love overtook the scary situation and the two ended up getting married near the beach in Vancouver on June 17th. Anthony’s amazing video was a winning selection for the GoPro Awards, which accepts submissions and rewards creators for their best content shot with a GoPro camera.
I met Katherine when she moved across the street from me. We started as neighbors and you could say our relationship skyrocketed from there.

Two talented musicians, Keiko Hisamoto and Masako Watanabe performed a gorgeously serene cover of the iconic Led Zeppelin song “Stairway to Heaven” on traditional Japanese Kotos with Hiromu Motonaga and Kizan Kawamura on bamboo shakuhashi standing in for the leads and vocals.
Nijugen-Koto literally means 20 string Koto. Currently there are 21 strings but its name is still the original. This was developed in order to respond to modern music. The round nails create a soft tone in this performer’s style of playing.
