This was a very special Valentine’s Day for Josh Li and Ya Ting as they exchanged vows at the first ever wedding ceremony held at an Apple Store. The ceremony occurred at New York’s famous Fifth Avenue Apple Store, nto far from Rockefeller Center. The couple’s wedding rings were carried on a first generation iPod. No news yet on what brand the bride’s wedding ring was, but hopefully it was an elegant Tacori or Scott Kay selection.
The wedding was officiated by a man dressed as Steve Jobs, reading the couple their vows from an iPhone. Josh Li further explained why they got married at an Apple Store to Entertainment Weekly. “We got to know each other becauseTing 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. Ting then came up with the idea of having the wedding there.”
Even the elusive, real Steve Jobs participated in the ceremony—from a distance and indirectly. His words were incorporated into the sermon: “You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” Soon after that, the couple exchanged rings and said “iDo”.
