(Newser) – In case you slept in, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had an understated, private get-together Saturday morning and got married among friends at City Hall. Kidding: Their marriage at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, near London, was a major international media event filled with beloved moments that are rippling through social media. Among the highlights:

  • Facing his radiant bride-to-be at the altar, Harry was seen telling her, "You look amazing. I'm so lucky," reports USA Today. He was also cheeky enough to say what looks like, "I'm sh--ing it"—a video clip that has "already gone viral," per the Cut.
  • The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry of Chicago gave an electrifying sermon at the ceremony. "There’s power in love," he said. "Do not underestimate it. Anyone who has ever fallen in love, knows what I mean. But think about love in any form or experience of it. It actually feels good to be loved, and to express love. There is something right about it. And there’s a reason." See it on YouTube.
