In today's adorable news, Zynga's Mafia Wars has brought together two players in a lovestruck romance that has led the gang-busting couple to join in holy matrimony today. The couple, John Sweeney and Joanne Doan, met through a Mafia Wars clan in March 2009 called Mafia Wars Dark Angels in which a heated clan war brought the smitten web-mobsters closer together, according to Sweeney.

The resultant long-distance relationship only lasted through the holiday season before neither could take being apart anymore, leading Sweeney to move in with his beloved across Florida from Margate to Treasure Island. After a while of warring with clans together in their second love, the Mafia Wars True Alliance clan, Sweeney popped the big question and today they'll finally make official what they both call a "True Mafia Wars Love Connection."

Zynga was apparently so touched by the story that to help the bride and groom celebrate they're sending them on a honeymoon of their choice! Pretty sweet deal for the newlyweds, if you ask us.

Both Sweeney and Doan have since gone in together on various labors of love, including the "The Facebook & Zynga Podcast," which airs weekly on Blog Talk Radio.
