It finally happened! One of the nerds on The Big Bang Theory finally tied the knot on last night's episode. After a failed city hall wedding, Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) exchanged their vows during a shotgun ceremony the morning before the groom departed for the International Space Station. Here are our three favorite details:

  • The wedding was on the roof of Sheldon and Leonard's apartment building where the group always hangs out — there's nothing like an at-home wedding.
  • Everyone became ordained online — Amy, Penny, Sheldon, Leonard and Raj all gave the couple away! Our favorite line from the ceremony came from maid of honor, Amy: "Bernadette, I want to thank you for allowing me to be your maid of honor. I also want you to know that I will be happy to do it again, if this marriage craps out."
  • The ceremony was photographed from space as the Google satellite passed over Pasadena.
