    For the most devoted of Pinterest users, perhaps you can't remember life before the Pin It button. How did we remodel our apartments, organize recipes were dying to try, or — deep breath — throw a wedding? Probably with a lot more Post-its, that's for sure. Luckily, Pinterest exists today to provide us with inspiration galore. Even Evan Sharp and his now wife, Christina [McBride] Sharp, turned to the curation boards when it came to planning their big day. Considering Evan is one half the impressive entrepreneurs who founded Pinterest, it's only appropriate.

    For the San Francisco-based couple, who've been together well before the addictive site launched, Pinterest was their primary planning source. And, it's not just the groom with the social-media expertise — Christina is the head of digital global business marketing at Facebook. Yes, somewhere the Internet gods are beaming with delight.

    And, while the couple's lives may be greatly immersed in the digital world, their big day boiled down to a simple affair with plenty of rustic charm. The bride wore a dress from a local S.F. designer, and the couple chose their neighborhood hangout to celebrate all night long. That is, after the intimate affair with family, friends, and, yes, Facebook, close at hand. Jump ahead to peek inside a very special wedding that the world of tech helped create.
