TEXTING WHILE DRIVING SLIPPED TO #2 on the list of dangerous activities back on November 21. That’s when a groom interrupted his wedding ceremony to log onto his Facebook page and change his status from “in a relationship” to “married.” Then he sent the news out on Twitter.
The high-tech event took place in Abingdon, Maryland, and just as soon as the minister pronounced the happy couple to be “man and wife,” the groom, Dale Hanna whipped out his cell phone and immediately updated his Facebook page, and then he Twittered the news to all of his friends who couldn’t make it to the ceremony. As the guests in the audience started giggling, the minister who was in on the stunt, told everbody that the groom was updating his relationship status. After the quick posting, he handed his bride Tracy’s phone to her and she did the same on her page.
Hanna later explained, “I have a lot of family scattered around the country and we all use Facebook a lot to keep in touch. So when Tracy and I were engaged, most of my family found out via Facebook because we updated our statuses.”
In case you’re wondering what Dale tweeted from the altar, here it is: “Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday”
