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.


Wedding in Palm Springs California


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.

Somehow I guess I am not surprised about the iPad vows.  Guess the grrom was more "traditional."

I wasn't either, knowing the bride. It was pretty funny, although no doubt a bit embarassing for the bride.

Jeff... Indeed, we've changed. And like you, one thing I really enjoy in these times is a little more relaxation about formality. Even me, who considers himself somewhat progressive, learns all the time from my kids, relax, enjoy, stuff happens, no big. Looks like a beautiful setting for a wedding! Great share!

Jeff, That looks like a wonderful venue for a wedding. I can't imagine a bride using an ipad for reciting vows ... but that is just me. The issue was resolved and the wedding took place.

It looked like a perfect day for a techie wedding.

I personally would prefer no Ipad,  nor written sheet...I would like it the old fashion way...by memory.
