Man ties the knot with smartphone in Las Vegas
Los Angeles, June 29 (IANS) A man in the US has taken his love for smartness to a whole new level – by marrying it in a Las Vegas ceremony, media reports said.
The wedding looked like a typical Las Vegas wedding, except for one deviation. The groom, Aaron Chervenak, wore a tux. The bride wore a protective case, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on Monday.
Chervenak said “I do,” when the officiant at The Little Vegas Chapel asked, “Do you, Aaron, take this smartphone to be your lawfully wedded wife, and do you also promise to love her, honor her, comfort and keep her, and be faithful to her?”
“At first it was like what?” The Little Las Vegas Chapel owner Michael Kelly was quoted as saying by www.ktnv.com
“And then I was like… Alright let’s do it,” Kelly said.
The symbolic gesture to marry his smartphone appears to be a move by artist-director Chervenak to send a message to society, according to Kelly.
“People are so connected to their phones and they live with them all the time,” Kelly said.
And that sounds almost like marriage.
The marriage is not legally recognised by the State of Nevada,the KTNV report said.
