Alan and gOgO were married in the presence of many friends and family while countless others logged-on to witness the proceedings on their "Wedding Website".
Another special touch had the ceremony take place "within" a computer-generated "Unencumbered Virtual Reality" environment. Thanks to this technology (Mandala VGC), the happy couple said their vows under a virtual chuppah inside artistic digital landscapes.
