One man traveled to Vegas just so he could say ‘I do’ to his smartphone. Aaron Chervenak, 34, from Los Angeles, married his cellphone at The Little Vegas Chapel in Nevada last month in an attempt to make a point about society’s growing devotion to and reliance on their smartphones.
Aaron said in a video documenting his peculiar wedding.
‘If we’re gonna be honest with ourselves, we connect with our phones on so many emotional levels,’ ‘We look to it for solace, to calm us down, to put us to sleep, to ease our minds, and to me, that’s also what a relationship is about.’ So in a sense my smartphone has been my longest relationship,’ he added. ‘That’s why I decided to see what it was like to actually marry a phone.’
Aaron explained that when he arrived in Vegas, he contacted a local chapel to see if they would be willing to hold the ‘slightly unorthodox ceremony’, and he was pleased to learn that they were more than open to it.
‘I think they were really excited about the prospect,’ he said. ‘It is something different and it is something new.’
During the ceremony, the officiant asked Aaron to think of all the ‘laughter’ and ‘good times’ he has shared with his cell phone before asking him to promise to ‘honor’ and ‘comfort her’
