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.
