A man drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in order to marry his cellphone in a chapel ceremony, according to KTNV.

“It is my honour and my privilege to pronounce you husband and smart phone,” pronounced Little Vegas Chapel owner Michael Kelly, in a ceremony attended by a handful of people.

Although the marriage isn’t legally recognised by the state of Nevada, Kelly said the groom, Aaron Chervenak, did it in order to send a message to society about people’s relationship with their smartphones.

“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.”

Kelly added that “We don’t really have many people that marry inanimate objects,” although the Little Vegas Chapel will never deny anyone any kind of commitment ceremony.
