All’s fair in love and war

Paige & Jodie

Married couple Jodi & Page came to the MobileBooth in Denver this afternoon to talk about the way they first met — online.

“He thought that it was sad that I would use the ‘internets’ to find someone,” Jodi said of his father.

Little did dad know, that not only would the two get married within the year, but that he would also jump on the internet bandwagon, becoming an ordained minister online so that he could preside over their wedding.

Jodi and Paige wanted someone official at the altar, but preferred that it not be a stranger. “My dad…who’s practically atheist. He got online and was able to get ordained, just like that,” said Jodi. “You can do that in Colorado.”
