A Congressman Used A Drone To Film An Incredible Wedding Video

In the drone's video footage, the happy couple - Maloney, the first openly gay congressman from the Empire State, and his longtime partner, Randy Florke - can be seen having rice thrown on them as they exit a church in the upstate town of Cold Spring. The drone then flies higher for a panoramic view of the church and, later, the poolside reception.

When asked about the video, Maloney's office noted to Business Insider that the drone company, Propellerheads Aerial Photography, is headed by a veteran who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
