The mother of the groom desired a surprise slide show for the wedding rehearsal dinner. She wanted to include photos of the bride and the groom as they were growing up, plus photos of them as a couple. She gathered photos of her son, and she solicited help from the bride for photos of her own childhood as well as couple photos.
Two slide shows were prepared for consideration. The resulting slide show was five minutes, with 64 photos (a mix of print and digital). Printed photos were scanned, and selected photos were enhanced and edited as needed. Photos of the bride and groom were grouped into five categories:
- the early years
- off to college
- in their 20s
The slide show included licensed music and was played on a loop so that guests could enjoy it throughout the evening.
