My friends planned their wedding for an entire year and it was finally their big day.
My experience as an assistant photographer at weddings taught me that the day will come and go in a heartbeat. So I advised them to make sure that they pause throughout the day to take in the moment.
In addition to being their officiant, they gave me an even more important task: to periodically remind them to be present.
In spite of everything happening at the wedding, I whispered in their ears to pause, to take a deep breath, and be aware of the fleeting moment.
All in all, with the convenience of calendars and alarms in your pocket, you too can remind yourself to add pauses to your day.
