Ahh. The wonders of technology. Today, Kevin and I attended a wedding in Florida while sitting at our dining room table in Texas. Yep. The family took a laptop, hooked it up to the internet, placed us to the right of the minister and we Skyped the whole thing. The reception too. We got to see Chrissy be given away by her 2 dads and her grandfather (my dad) and we got to see them exchange rings and we also got to see them share their first kiss as husband and wife. It really was such a lovely ceremony. After the wedding we got to see everyone eat and the first dance, the bouquet toss and the cutting of the cake. All in all, I was Skyping for 4 hours. Kevin made it through the ceremony and that's about it.
So the quality wasn't the best, and it sure wasn't the same as us being there, but it definitely beat the alternative and that was to miss it entirely. I am so glad I thought of this yesterday. We got Skype set up and everything last night, but we weren't sure if there would be internet available. Sure enough - there was. YAY!!!
And in the middle of the reception I got a phone call from someone I haven't spoken to since 2nd grade - over 30 years! Unbelievably, my best friend from back in those days found me via the internet and contacted me today. Jocelyn - it was just so wonderful catching up with you!
It's just amazing the things you can do nowadays, huh?
