Charles Powell met a group of friends through online Xbox gaming and to our surprise, 15 years after the meeting, he chose one of them the best man at his wedding. He had never met that guy in person. It was the very first time in 15 years he met that guy and that too on his wedding.
The wedding was amazing and it was a day which Charles will cherish forever as it didn’t just merely involved his now-wife walking down the aisle but it also involved someone special from the gaming world. The special part of his wedding were the friends who attended it to make it more cherishable.
Charles hadn’t met Joseph Morris from Baltimore, Maryland, the best man at the wedding and guests Joseph Waters and William Brown, before – it was the very first time in life he met his friends. The amazing part was that he wasn’t meeting them in some bar or a club but instead at his own wedding.
A little backstory – Charles had met these friends back in 2003 during an Xbox game. He was playing Phantasy Star online when he met Joseph Waters, known as Sinjo on Xbox, from Detroit, Michigan. He asked him for some help during the game for an item called mono-fluid (something that gives more magical powers during the gameplay) and later both of them got introduced to a third person William brown, ‘Wi1L B’, from Nashville, Tennessee.
After they played the game, they got introduced to a third player named, Josephf Morris, aka Grimmjo. The four became quite good friends.
The four had been now friends for almost 15 years but despite being a close friend virtually they never had met each other in person.
The four were quite a good friend but Charles chose Josephf Morris has his best man. Charles had decided to marry Myra and he thought that it would be a perfect occasion to meet all the friends.
The reason to choose Josephf as his best man was because he had grown exceptionally close to the guy during his game session. He added, “I knew he wanted to come down here because his father is from around here and hasn’t seen him since he was 3 so he ended up meeting him. I also knew I could trust him to show up.”
15 years of playing on Xbox live. The first time we have ever met, and he’s a groomsman in my wedding. Online friends are real life friends. pic.twitter.com/2rEAXozZtr

The guy thinks that the best part of the wedding was Myra walking down the aisle. He said that Myra respects his friend and she knew him from Facebook. Myra used to watch Charles talk with his best friend during Xbox gaming sessions for almost 4 years.
