Let’s start out this post with a little game. Raise your hand if you’ve ever been to a wedding where your view of the bride and groom at a wedding ceremony was blocked because someone was holding up an iPhone trying to take a picture? OK, now raise your hand if you’ve ever been the person holding up your iPhone trying to take a picture of the bride and groom during their wedding ceremony. I guarantee you raised your hand to the first question, and you may have not raised your hand to the second question out of shame, but it was fun playing. Point is, we want an unplugged wedding.

As I mentioned, it is getting beyond ridiculous now how many people are taking photos of wedding ceremonies on their phones. At the weddings we go to, we refuse to take photos during the ceremony and try to only take minimal photos at the reception, and usually those are just of us looking nice. It’s incredibly annoying to see a dozen people holding their hands up in the air holding a phone trying to take a picture during the exchanging of rings or the first kiss. It blocks everyone else’s view and looks ridiculous.
