He reprogrammed her favorite video game so a ring and a marriage proposal would pop up when his girlfriend reached a certain score. And on Saturday, computer programmer Bernie Peng married Tammy Li in a New Jersey ceremony and reception replete with references to Li's favorite game, "Bejeweled."

PopCap Games, the game's creator, says the couple's wedding cake was in the shape of a video game console. Guests were given free copies of the game as wedding favors.
