High Tech Vs. Low Tech Wedding
No, this has nothing to do with real estate but everything to do with personal life. And that's OK.
But it's a commentary on our technology lives today.
We attended a beautiful wedding yesterday in Palm Springs, in the California desert. The venue was spectacular, as was the weather. The bride is a dear friend of our older daughter's, and she is like a 3rd daughter in our famiy. It was such fun to be part of this special moment, with the grandkids there too.
The officiant, a close friend of the bride's, had his notes on a sheet of paper, perhaps hand written but my guess is they were printed.
All went well, with a few emotional moments, till the time for the individual vows. The bride had hers on her iPad, which she had not remembered to tuck into her dress and there was a moment of panic. Change of plans, with the groom doing his vows first, also on a piece of paper, while a close friend scurried off to locate the missing iPad.
The bride's iPad was eventually located, things proceeded according to plan with the vows, and no one seemed the least bothered by the interruption.
I suppose some would be horrified that the formality one often finds in weddings was disrupted by technology. For me it just made it more endearing among friends and family. And given the crowd, and the number of iPhones I saw, I doubt it created much of a stir at all.
