STORYBOOK WEDDINGS



Today I have an exciting new product to tell you about! Yesterday, as I was scoping out new ideas and responding to my LinkedIn requests, I happened on this new little company and I just had to share. So, I made a phone call and got the "story" from the ingenious founder of The Wedding Story Writer. This concept is the brainchild of Michelle McMurray. Michelle, a writer and lover of weddings, gave her own mother the gift of a diary of her wedding day. That gesture led to the birth of her concept- and her business. Now, Michelle and her team of writers, scattered all over the United States and available for destination weddings, is ready to chronicle your wedding day.


Who would not want a beautiful book with the story of such a milestone, to "have and to hold"? A storybook to be read to your children. An addition to your wedding video, or an affordable alternative to a videographer. If you are looking for a unique way to remember your day forever, this is it!


Speaking to Michelle, a bubbly and vibrant lady with a smile that shines through the phone, I asked her about her business and we chatted about how and why she came to this business. She explained to me the process and some funny anecdotes about her experiences. Guests are curious and the groomsmen are pretty disinterested in the storytelling. But, brides love the idea and the finished product, a beautiful book with a special story, full of details that many brides miss on their wedding day. As a spectator, Michelle can stand back and watch, taste and listen to the day. As a "silent" vendor, she can delve into the nuances of the day, explain the sights and sounds of how the day unfolds.
Michelle will arrive while you are preparing for your wedding. She will sit and listen to thoughts, your chats with the girls, the funny and touching moments between you and your mom. Taking notes and observing all that surrounds your day. From the weather, to the visuals of the room, to the walk down the aisle and the taste of the cake, Michelle will write down every detail of your day. Then, like all great storytellers, she will weave all those notes and observances into a storybook that you can read and re- read for years to come.

I love this idea. First of all, unlike photos and videos, it brings to life the smells, the quiet conversations, the essence of your day. Things that a camera can't capture- the taste of the cake melting in your mouth, the whispered chatter of guests coming into the ceremony, a few words from a special guest about you. It is a beautiful way to remember your wedding and Michelle makes it fun and unobtrusive as she writes furiously all day in the background. So, if you are looking for something new to bring to your wedding, give Michelle a call. This is a fabulous new trend in the making!
