It is not uncommon that a wedding ceremony is not able to be attended by everyone. Sometimes grandparents and parents are too sick, elderly, or frail to attend. In this amazing age of technology there is still a way for them to “attend”.
A few months ago, I officiated at a small wedding in Savannah. The bride’s family lived in Brazil. We set up a laptop and Skyped them for the whole ceremony. Everything was carefully laid out, planned, and choreographed so that they could see and hear the entire thing live, as it happened. I even welcomed those who were joining us online so that they could feel more a part of the celebration thousands of miles away.
Don’t we live in amazing times where such things are possible?
