Eddie Levine and Jing Gao met through online shopping. Both share this passion privately and professionally, because the couple from Chicago works in the e-commerce sector. So Levine and Gao are busy building online shops and selling goods and services over the Internet. The two found each other through various points of contact in the industry, and the wedding finally took place in August.
So it only seems logical that the whole celebration was Amazon-style. "We looked at other options, but they were all so boring," groom Levine told CNBC. "I wanted something that showed our background - a tribute to where we come from." He and his newly wed wife succeeded.
Gifts wrapped in Amazon packages can be seen in the pictures, which some wedding guests posted on social media. The tables carried number codes, as is usual with online orders. And during breaks, guests could pose in front of a photo wall labeled "Jeddie Prime Day" - a nod to Amazon Prime Day.
The motto of the celebration was also appropriate in that many guests shared the same professional background. During the ceremony, Levine and Gao asked everyone who met through work to stand up - almost the whole room stood up. However, not everyone could understand the decoration. "The bartender asked me what all the Amazon stuff was about," recalls Eddie Levine.
