Because Technology can be Pracitcal
The Wedding Studio at FranMo
Virtual Happy Hour. Virtual Dinner Parties. Virtual Game Night. Virtual Wedding? Yep. And, The Wedding Studio at FranMo is set up just for that purpose.
“Couples have used a variety of Social Media Sharing Apps to bring friends and family to their weddings. As a former broadcast TV producer, I have loved incorporating these kinds of creative technologies with my unconventional concepts and ceremony content.
Couples working with me have streamed their wedding to Iceland, China, England and to relatives who were unable to travel. I have even had a Best Man attend virtually.
These days with COVID-19 issues; social distancing and doing their best to avoid passing or being infected, Virtual Weddings have become very practical, and less of a novelity.” ~Frank Harlan
