Live Coverage – An Instagram Wedding

As you may now be aware, Instagram has gone full-on Web in addition to being a phone app. You can read all about it in this Time article here.

This past weekend I was at Meghan’s wedding in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio. The wedding was just amazing from the streamer exit out of the church and into a trolley, to the perfect winter photo shoot all around downtown Columbus! Naturally, the journalist in me couldn’t help but document.

Using Instagram, I started taking shots of…everything and hash-tagging #WinteringWedding (her new last name is Wintering, it just sounded right)….

#WinteringWedding Guests

then at the reception, other guests started hash-tagging too! Just by word of mouth, my hashtag grew!

I am SO excited for Meghan to see a timeline in pictures from her guests behind the scenes. I’m thinking this Instagram gift book would make the perfect newly-wed gift. I’ve found a few ideas and included them on TinLey’s Pinterest board…go on over and check it out!

instagram photo book! - I personally would go a step further and actually do this for the family yearbooks for hard to file *awesome* photos.

thanks thehouseofsmiths.com!

Here’s to a very social media wedding day! Hope this inspires you to document your friends day in a unique way. I’d love to hear your ideas.
