Welcome to the very first Cliqbooth blog post - and what better place to start our most important events - weddings!
So many of our events are about helping brides and grooms celebrate their big day with a fun photobooth (that is so much more than just a photo booth) by capturing beautiful images of their friends and family having a really, freaking hilariously good time.
Often, when I'm at these events - apart from wishing I had Cliqbooth at my wedding - I'm reminded of my wife Teneille's and my special day and what an amazing feeling it is to have everyone in the world that you love, all in one place, at one time, sharing a meal and having a dance together. It also makes me reflect on how quickly that day passed into the history books and how i'll probably never get to have all those special people together again in my lifetime.
It's hard not to get a little bit sentimental and i'll admit, from time to time I may have shed a little tear...
The other thing it reminds me is that marriage is about much more than a day - it's about a life deeply shared with another human being. It's about highs - but it's also about lows (and trust me, we've had some). It's about building something together that stands the test of time and (hopefully) makes the world a better place. In many ways, it's so much bigger than just the two of us - all those special people who witnessed our vows on that day form part of the story of that shared life and someday I hope my grandchildren will continue to share in its legacy.
Call me old fashioned, but I believe in Love and the power and joy of commitment. And I love that we get to be a part of capturing history in the making....
