There were almost four hundred and fifty guests at the Michelle Barone-Lepore as well as Daniel Lepore’s marriage but they were not the day’s only players. Hundred others saw a live video stream of the pair’s September 2013 reception and ceremony at the Saint Kateri Tekakwitha church in LaGrangeville as well as Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls.
Poughkeepsie’s media and marketing company Think Social First’s owner Barone-Lepore told that there was another thousand which literally, wanted to be there for him. For her, this was the best way to get them there.
A certified master wedding planner Micki Novak told that social media is a very great part of today’s marriages. She added that guests are very excited to share their activities on Facebook and Instagram as they happen. It is not uncommon as the bride is walking down the aisle to see smart phones en masse as guests strive to take their own personal photos.
Common sense shows what is appropriate to post, she told, adding that it would be next to impossible to monitor the snaps, even if the pair requests that guests refrain from putting them up. Novak told that as long as social media is as popular as it is these days, it would carry on to be widely used at weddings. Barone Lepore told that her husband’s taste was for a quiet affair, but he was not surprised by her enthusiasm for a large, socially connected celebration.
