The Bunting Bash: Pictures of You, Pictures of Me

Daddy Bunting loves to make slideshow movies, and he especially loves to time them perfectly with music and coordinating lyrics. We go on a family trip, and when we return he’ll be poring over the resulting photos and designing a musical montage masterpiece to burn to DVDs for us all. Now that I’m thinking about it, slideshows are sort of like scrapbooking for men. But I digress!

I wasn’t going to get down on my knees and beg for someone to make us a cute wedding slideshow for the reception, but I do think they’re rather nice to watch at weddings as long as they don’t run for too long. Maybe it’s just me, but I enjoy seeing snippets of people’s life stories, and it is especially fun to see side-by-side comparisons of the couple as they age. Still, it wasn’t something that I could devote my precious DIY’ing time to. Fortunately, I had Weapon X Daddy Bunting. So he pored over my baby pictures and got several storage tubs of Mr. Bunting’s baby albums while I provided a list of the songs essential to our childhood/adolescence. And then we set him loose.

He spent hours and hours and HOURS making our slideshow. He selected the best of the best photos, timed them perfectly with the songs that best represented our different life stages, and created a wonderful catalog of memories that had us smiling”¦


…head-back laughing”¦

…and blushing.

Thanks, Daddy Bunting—you really know how to make them! And you know what’s even more heartwarming? ALL of our guests watched the slideshow. A+++, Daddy Bunting. A+++, Bunting guests.

    I love that picture of your dad watching the slideshow. It’s obvious that he put a lot of work into it to get those reactions out of you! What a great thing to have as a keepsake!

    I’d like to have a slideshow at the cocktail hour, so while we’re physically not there yet – we’d still be there with our guests.
