Craft a quest adventure game for your reception

If you're a gamer and want your reception to both celebrate games and give your guests rad ways to interact, this quest adventure game is right up your alley.

You'll swoon over how these ladies danced into their ceremony

Mary and Emily had been together for ten years waiting for gay marriage to be legalized. Three days after the ban was overturned, Mary called Emily's mom to ask for her hand in marriage. Her mom's response was, "Well, it's about time." Our favorite part was how they danced into the ceremony that ended with their guests forming a half circle around them. They then shared a dance before the ceremony started and another dance after.
