While You’re Waiting…
What’s that beautiful music?
That’s the talented Mary Conway, isn’t she fabulous? Doesn’t she deserve a tip?
What’s this “unplugged” business?
We’ve hired an amazing photographer to capture our very short wedding ceremony so you get to just sit and watch through your eyeballs, not your phone. You can absolutely keep your phone on and with you, but if you could keep it in your lap and on silent until the ceremony is over, that’d be fabulous. The people behind you say, “thanks.” Before or after the ceremony, feel free to blow up Instagram with photos of the reception and selfies with the bride. Make sure you use the hashtag #allsuttonedup for any pictures or videos that you share online!
What’s a hashtag?
It’s something we can use to find all of your awesome photos and videos online after the wedding. It also helps us use these videos in our Wedding Mix video.
What’s “Wedding Mix”
Wedding Mix + you = our wedding video! Every time you share a photo or video to Instagram with the hashtag #allsuttonedup, it can be collected for our video. If you’re willing, you can take it a step further and download this app on iTunes or Google Play and take videos directly from the app (this works really well for the more embarrassing or…um…private videos). Still don’t get it? Check out this video.
I noticed a keg/wine sitting over there…
Good eye! That’s for you. Like, now. Go get a glass. Weddings are always better with a drink in hand. Plus, that makes it way harder to sneakily film the ceremony.
Seating of the Family
“Marriage is a vital social institution. The exclusive commitment of two individuals to each other nurtures love and mutual support. Civil marriage is at once a deeply personal commitment to another human being and a highly public celebration of the ideals of mutuality, companionship, intimacy, fidelity, and family. Because it fulfills yearnings for security, safe haven, and connection that express our common humanity, civil marriage is an esteemed institution and the decision whether and whom to marry is among life’s momentous acts of self-definition. It is undoubtedly for these concrete reasons, as well as for its intimately personal significance, that civil marriage has long been termed a “civil right.” Without the right to choose to marry, one is excluded from the full range of human experience.”
Declaration of Intent
This is the legal bit. Thank you, Washington, for ensuring that we are not getting married today under duress.
We wrote these!
What are you pouring up there? That’s not a candle…
Nope! Our “unity ceremony,” like us, is a bit different. We actually borrowed the southern wedding tradition of “burying the bourbon.” A month ago today, we buried a bottle of bourbon upside down here, this is said to ensure good weather (I hope it worked). Just as we have shared and continue to share life and love, we’ll share a glass and toast all of you wonderful people who have loved us so much.
Where’d you guys go?
We left to go take some pictures and maybe canoodle a bit. But don’t worry about that…we’ll be back soon. Go refill that glass in your hand, snack on the delicious trays supplied by Kam Farmer and sign our guest book!
Who’s that guy drawing in the corner?
Glad you asked! That’s our very own caricaturist! We had our portrait done by Over the Line He’ll only be here for a couple hours so beat the rush and go see him now!
What are these flip-cameras for?
Those cameras are also part of our Wedding Mix video! You can use those cameras if you don’t want to mess with this smart phone + app business. Just don’t lose it or they might send someone to our house to break a kneecap. If someone is hogging the camera, you can also upload your videos from your own camera/phone online later.
Why is there a mother-daughter dance?
You do realize that there are two brides in this wedding? We’re breaking all the rules!
These glasses are plastic, how am I supposed to make the couple kiss?
Sorry, our Pavlovian training didn’t include the “clink-kiss” program, but if you drop a dollar in the Honeymoon Jar, we’ll give you a show 😉 Heck, drop in a twenty and we’ll kiss YOU! Alternatively, if you’re low on cash, you can come demonstrate a kiss for us and we’ll do our best to recreate it!
I’m feeling the love, can I make a speech/toast?
So glad you’re feeling the wine…I mean love! To keep things short and sweet, we’re limiting the number of speeches made. But thank you for your love! If you want to share something special with us, grab one of those cameras on the table and find a quiet corner.
