Digital love: Computer weds couple after groom creates priest
It’s almost suitable, as the happy couple met online, at a site aptly called “Sweet On Geeks”. So when the big day approached, and the groom couldn’t find a priest free to conduct the ceremony, he decided to make one out of cyberdust.
At least Houston-based web developer Miguel Hanson had a sense of humour about it when he made his solution: he called it “Reverend Bit”. Said the good reverend: “If anyone here has anything to say that might change their minds or has any objections, they do not want to hear it and I will not recognise your objections since Miguel has programmed me to only recognise his commands.”
So then last Saturday Reverend Bit greeted Hanson, fiancée Diana Wesley and 30 guests. He talked everyone through the story of the happy couple, before seeing to their vows and declaring them husband and wife. A true tecchy love story.[via CNET]
