wedding registries

today is the wedding day of a young couple we have just loved working with.  the last few days and weeks have been all about chatting with (mostly over the phone) and meeting their family and friends-- helping people to chose gifts, hearing stories about the couple from their relatives, and getting to put a little extra effort into wrapping presents-- all good fun.

this particular couple have a strong community-- a lot of people really cheering them on.  i love seeing that.

different families are different with wedding registries-- some are more reserved and don't chat with us as much, while some really get into the whole process, aunts and uncles and grandparents all calling the shop (to buy from our online registry) and stopping in-- telling us who is the eldest sister, who is the youngest, who is the most fun, who kept everyone else in line over the years.  either way our job is really fun-- writing gift cards and wrapping presents-- of course!  but it is nice to be able to get to know the couple a little more through their families-- nice to see a whole picture of two people who have joined their lives.

congratulations sydney and nick!

one of my favorite parts of my job...
