Hosta: your post just reminded me of a conversation I had with a wedding photographer. The happy couple spend £1,200 for him to record the day.
He sets up a beautiful pose the sun in the perfect position and as he takes the image he sees three camera phones being waved in shot ruining his efforts. Thus happens throughout the day. Some people he never even sees their faces. He watches the "I do" with care and passion yet through his camera sees people fiddling on their phones missing the important moment.
What do they remember of the actual wedding? Do they remember the colours the smiles the way the sun shone on their faces? I rather doubt it.
When I get married I will have a sign that will read "anyone who cares more for their phones than for us is asked to leave now. Anyone who cares more for us please put them away; we've paid a lot of money for the photographer to do the hard work. Enjoy the moment!"
I may also anyone found playing with their phone before the speeches will be made to put enough cash behind the bar to buy a round for ALL the guests.
