Have you heard about Canditto? I hadn’t until recently but it’s a really fabulous idea for your wedding.
Canditto allows you to gather all the pictures taken by your guests on THEIR digital cameras during your wedding day. And you don’t even have to do any work!
Canditto is a kiosk that is set up at your wedding reception. During your event, your guest simply walk up, insert their memory card into the kiosk and all the photos which have been taken on that camera in the last eight hours are instantly download into the kiosk.
At the end of the night, you are given a CD that contains all the photos. It’s a great way to get tons of candid pictures from your wedding and reception from your guests’ perspective.
And what’s great about Canditto is that you don’t have to do any of the work. An employee of Canditto will deliver, set up and monitor the kiosk. Then before the end of the night, they’ll have the CD ready.
All you have to do is let your guests know to bring their digital cameras, and then remind them to use the kiosk at the event.
Canditto can also combine the best of your guests’ photographs onto custom USB cards. They’ll be ready by 8:00am the morning after your wedding. So you can give these portable thumb drives as a cool little gift to your guests at brunch the next day.
Currently Canditto is available throughout New England. To learn more about Canditto, visit their website at Canditto.com, where you can watch a video and get further information about this fabulous idea.
Your wedding is something that you plan and plan and plan, and you’re certainly going to want to remember it forever! With all the frills you need to incorporate: your wedding dress, flowers, and a cake to name a few, those memories come at a pretty high cost. Let’s face it: even if you and your beau decide to elope, it still takes time and money to start a life together.
But what if those costs meant you’d have to wait 27 years to get your wedding pictures?
Believe it or not, Karen Cline and her husband, Mark, have had no photographs of their wedding that took place 27 years ago until just last week. Cline was busy working at a diner in Mansfield, Ohio, when Jim Wagner, the couple’s wedding photographer, now 80, surprised her with a wedding album.
Wagner said he’d been cleaning when he found the album. After running into Cline’s stepfather, he was able to track down the bride and give her the ultimate anniversary gift.
Talk about making the effort out of the goodness of your heart! Wagner said he “just thought [Cline] might like to have [the album].” He certainly didn’t expect anything in return.
When Cline saw the album, she “just stood there and cried and cried and hugged [Wagner].” Cline said that when she and her husband were married as teenagers they were devastated because they couldn’t afford to pay Wagner the $150 they owed. Instead they had to settle for one picture that a guest had taken as the bride walked down the aisle.
When Wagner finally caught up with Cline, though, she insisted on writing him a check on the spot! Clearly the couple has come a long way from their meager beginnings.
The couple celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary this past Thursday and I’m sure it was a special event, considering that one priceless gift.
