A military wife ties the knot over a cell phone

September 7, 2007

Albany -- A Mitchell County couple tied the knot over a cell phone. 

Sergeant First Class Daniel Chastain and his new wife Heather exchanged vows via a cell phone this week. He is currently serving his second tour in Iraq.

Several of Heather's family members were with her at the Mitchell County courthouse for the unusual ceremony.

"The judge had never done it before, and we just basically got him on the phone," said Heather Chastain. "And she said repeat after me. He did his vows and I did my vows, and the next thing you know we were married."

It's going to be a long wait before Heather can reunite with her groom. Daniel won't be back in the states until November of next year.

The Chastain's plan to have a church wedding as soon as Daniel gets back from Iraq.
