Marine Corps Captain Matthew Krivohlavy couldn't make it to his brother's wedding because he's deployed in Afghanistan. So Krivohlavy got creative - he toasted the new bride and groom midair from the cockpit of his jet.

Newlywed Brandon Krivohlavy posted video of his brother's creative toast on Reddit, writing:

"My brother was deployed in Afghanistan during my wedding this past weekend, so he surprised us with this very heartfelt video he made from the cockpit of his harrier. Needless to say, it brought everyone to tears."

The video (courtesy of Brandon Krivohlavy) has subsequently gone viral.

According to the New York Daily News, Capt. Krivohlavy is assigned to Marine Attack Squadron 231, based at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina.
