A Skype Wedding: Groom Marries His Bride From a Hospital Bed at UCI Medical Center
Family and friends from Korea and New York had flown in for the Fullerton ceremony, so instead of postponing the occasion, the tech-savvy couple, both 27, decided to wed over the web-video conferencing system Skype.
While Oh stood at the altar, Kim said "I do" from his hospital room, decorated by the nurses.
Oh told Reuters that the Skype wedding was not an ideal way to have a ceremony, but guests were happy.
"[Samuel] said he will make up for it. He promised me he's going to be the best husband in the world," Oh said. "He felt really terrible that he wasn't there."
The marriage-sealing kiss should come soon enough. Kim is expected to be released from the hospital this week.
