"With This Click I Thee Wed": Online Wedding

"With This Click I Thee Wed": Online Wedding

I can't deny I'm pretty much obsessed with geek love. First there was iDating, a dating effort for people with iPhones, next there was a man who proposed marriage via a widget, and now, there's the first couple to have been married in the virtual world and the real world. That's right folks, players of the online game EverQuest II shared their love for gaming and each other at a live and in-game wedding ceremony hosted by Sony Online Entertainment. I heard about the ceremony, which took place at this month's Fan Faire held in Las Vegas, a while back, but didn't see the actual footage until this week. I'm speechless. Utterly speechless. Thank goodness I'm not the only person who thinks this is just too geeky!

During the ceremony, the couple exchanged vows in front of an audience of more than 1,600 fellow gamers (check out the Darth Vadar and Stormtroopers bridal party!), then 46 year-old Kelly Kane Davalos and 31 year-old Nathan Davalos sealed the deal through their EverQuest II avatars at computers perched on the altar. OMG. OMG.

No, not WoW..it was EQ. ^^ I know some people who are dating and met in an online game, as well as one couple who married and she came to the U.S. from the U.K.

Not my style either - but weddings are personal to your own style - I have to give them credit though for being who they want to be and not following tradition just because "they should"

That's actually pretty creative and it looks like they had a lot of fun doing it. =) It's not my style, but at the same time, hey, whatever makes them happy, eh?

i used to babysit for a couple who met playing an online game. and while their wedding was unique (he carried a sword, she wore like a medieval princess getup), I don't think their online selves married, too. This is just really different. But to each his own, I guess.
