I hope none of the eminent Buddhist leadership here stands up and makes a huge fuss over this.

Wonderful. Though it is a little sad that their parents did not attend, despite privately accepting their relationship (according to how the brides put it). It is not that surprising, since their parents generation are still quite bounded by traditional mores.
"Men must want to do things out of their own innermost drives. People, not commercial organizations or chains of command, are what make great civilizations work. Every civilization depends upon the quality of the individuals it produces. If you over-organize humans, over-legalize them, suppress their urge to greatness - they cannot work and their civilization collapses."
- A letter to CHOAM, attributed to the Preacher
