Paul and Sara are getting married. On Twitter. Sort of. They're technical sorts with a long-standing relationship with social media, so when they decided to legitimize their personal relationship, they figured they wouldn't divorce their daily life from their personal lives while they did it.
"A purple dress. A kilt. A best man who is *all* woman. Live-streaming and live-tweeting. A Twitter-themed-pot-luck-pool-party-reception. Rock Band. A pinata. A sex toy toss in place of the bouquet."
So, social media is tied up in their personal lives to a greater extend than it is with most practitioners.
The wedding, which will take place this coming Saturday, June 19, at 4:00 p.m. (Central U.S. time), will happen in a mystical, mythical place called Mobile, Alabama. But for those of you online it will be streamed live on Suburban Oblivion and Paul O'Flaherty. The reception, hosted by @wigenout and @imwigen, will be a Tweetup. It will also be live-streamed.
The bride and groom are registered at #paul&sara.
