In Las Vegas, it's not uncommon to see strange weddings, including. pet nuptials, and weed weddings. But last month, one man took his love for his phone to a whole new level.
If there's anywhere in the world you can marry your smartphone, it's probably Las Vegas.
"At first it was like what?” said The Little Las Vegas Chapel owner Michael Kelly. “And then I was like... Alright let’s do it.
"We don't really have many people that marry inanimate objects."
It all went down at The Little Vegas Chapel on May 20 when Aaron Chervenak drove all the way from Los
Angeles to marry the love of his life, his smart phone.
Kelly tells us Chervenak simply wanted to send a message to society.
“People are so connected to their phones and they live with them all the time,” said Kelly. “They're with them 24 hours a day. They go to sleep with their cell phone. They wake up with their cell phone, sometimes it's the first thing that they check."
Sounds like marriage?
“I think he wanted to explore that,” Kelly said. “Can technology become human?"
The marriage isn't legally recognized by the State of the Nevada, but there is no commitment ceremony The Little Vegas Chapel will deny.
