Couple gets married at New York Apple Store

A couple, described by themselves as being 'obsessed' with Apple products, got married at the company's store in New York on Valentines Day, Neowin has learnt via TechRadar. The couple first met at the store when shopping for an iPhone.

In the unauthorised ceremony, the wedding rings were tied by a ribbon wrapped around a first generation iPod, and the couple read their vows from their iPhones. Henry Hu, a friend who officiated the wedding was dressed as Steve Jobs in a black turtle neck sweater - $4.75 from a Sears clearance rack according to his blog.

The vows read out by the Jobs dressed friend said, "You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down."

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, which confirmed that this was their actual wedding, the bridegroom said, "We got to know each other because Ting was looking to buy an iPod…and I managed to strike up a conversation that way."

"I used to joke that the Apple Store is my church because I am not religious, and I loved everything Apple."

A video of the wedding recorded by a hot dog vendor who works outside the store was posted on YouTube.

I know, right? It's like this poster up above, Serenity I think is his screenname. He keeps saying over and over that all they did was have a simple wedding ceremony where they met, as if he completely failed to catch the part where they were married by a guy who went out of his way to pose as Steve Jobs, and instead of reading anything resembling a traditional, contemporary, or even modern wedding script, he quoted Steve Jobs. They also used Apple products as props, and freely admitted to having an obsession with Apple.

But man, that Serenity guy thinks it was just another cute 'setting' wedding like having it at your favorite park or Disney or something.

You're right, this is way different than every other theme wedding out there. Good point. I hope whenever you manage to save up enough for a mail-order bride, that random people on the internet get ahold of the footage and just **** all over it, just for giggles.

I wouldn't worry about this. In order for a marriage to be fulfilled it needs to be 'consumated'.

I seriously doubt that anyone who buys any Apple product is actually capable of having sex.

Yanno, I've put a lot of effort into countering the whole asian brand-whore joke that's writing itself here.

This kind of things make me sad...
Any obsession like this (a product, brand or company) is wrong, just wrong.

Don't know about pathetic, but sure does exemplify the intelligence of some people now a days.

Losers indeed.
Not surprisingly I said the same thing in my head as I was reading.

I don't know, I don't think so. This makes them happy, so more power to them. It's not my taste and obviously not yours, but they're not harming anyone and having a little fun at the same time. Why not????

Sometimes I think we (people in general) take life too seriously. I'm glad that these folks are doing something out of the norm and, as I said, having fun with it.

Peace.

I agree with you 100%.

I think people are nowadays in so much stress and carry a lot of slight bitterness and sometimes anger.
Ah... that really freaks me out.

Tolerance is a sweet thing, it makes a society happier, why the f*** don't we just see that and live by it?

extraordinary and unusual stuff is so easily offended nowadays, sad thing...
