Terry Jones and Victoria Dunn got married in New York. The best man and maid of honor were in Seattle, their minister was in California and some of their friends were in Portland, Ore.

But thanks to video conferencing, everyone was able to take part in Saturday's nuptials, united by four television sets at four different copy stores."It was a very nice little ceremony, much easier than traveling East, and they were able to see all their relatives and friends," said Kitty Jones, 73, the groom's mother.

There was a hitch, but it wasn't electronic. On Friday, the bride and groom learned they couldn't legally be married in New York by a minister beamed in from California on a video screen. The couple hurriedly contacted a minister in New York to perform the ceremony. Their minister in Berkeley, Calif., sent prayers via video.
