Social media is taking over the world. The latest conquest: weddings. Cengizhan Celik and Candan Canik of Turkey got married and exchanged their vows over Twitter. The happy pair "wanted to have a little surprise," according to the groom, who works as the social media editor of a Turkish news site.

The mayor of Istanbul district Uskuddar officiated the ceremony with a tweet to the bride and groom asking if they took each other as husband and wife. The pair passed an iPad between them and tweeted back "evet," which is Turkish for "yes." Check out the whole exchange of vows in the video above.

Of course, weddings are a great time for couples to show their quirky sides. Our own Tecca news editor Mike had an awesome Mario Kart-themed wedding cake. We've also seen very geeky proposals happen on music streaming service Pandora and 8-bit video game favorite Minecraft.
