Ya know, they say static interference on your wedding day is good luck

by Jeremy Hooper

We're a bit late getting to this novel tale of making do in an "I do"-delimited world:

Screen Shot 2010-11-15 At 5.57.04 AmHistory was made this week when Thomas Mark Reed and Dante Karl Walkup logged on to Skype and tied the knot, making them the first to participate in a "digital gay wedding" across state lines.

Their “Skype” wedding, which took place in Dallas, Texas, was officiated via teleconference from Washington, D.C., where same-sex marriage is legal.

"Skype? Oh, is she the bride, dear?"
