Just a little update here.  I have the thank you cards I ordered now, and I'm working on writing nice little notes of appreciation to everyone who attended our wedding.  Obviously, this would be a heck of a lot easier if I could make Clayton do some (and then we could both sign them all), but of course, that isn't going to happen.  Actually, Clayton says he wishes he could help me out with this task and, were it not so time consuming, I would consider sending him a bunch, along with a list of names and addresses.  However, being the one with handwriting that is actually legible to most of the civilized world, the work falls to me.  In short: it will take some time, but I'm working on them and I appreciate everyone's patience with me.

Next up is an update on our pictures.  EVERYONE wants to know where the pictures are.  We live in a digital age, surely I should have them instantly!  Well, that is not quite the case.  You see, whereas photographers previously had to manually develop the pictures, a process that had you patiently waiting for your proofs for months at times, today's photographers are developing them in a different way.  The Photoshop has changed the face of modern photography, and as a result, still has me waiting a few weeks for my photographers to fix peoples' shiny faces, red eyes, etc..  Also, my photographers, being the awesome people that they are, are rather busy this month. 

Now that I've (hopefully) diffused your understandable impatience with the process, I actually do have some news on the photographs.  Jenn (my primary photographer and the one with whom I signed a contract) has told me that many of the photographs will be available soon on Pictage, probably within a week.  If you all go to pictage.com  and search for "Brianna and Clayton Leverenz", you will be brought to a page with a guest book.  Go ahead and register, because only two things will happen as a result. 
  1. You will be notified by email when our wedding photographs are available for viewing
  2. If you pre-register, you will receive a $5 gift credit towards any of our pictures.
I've signed up, and I've noticed no spam or extra advertisements in my inbox as a result of doing so.  As for the gift credit, you might think that's pointless for you, as it wasn't your wedding.  However, I expressly told Jenn that I wanted lots of pictures of our guests, and of Clayton and myself spending time with them.  So odds are pretty good that there's at least one picture in there for which you might want to cash in your gift credit and get a print (or a coffee mug). 

Obviously, I won't have a wedding album to show anyone until I have the CD of our pictures.  The moms did not take any pictures at the wedding because they were helping out the whole time and/or being awesome and talking to guests.  So they have no pictures to show anyone, and will not until I give them some from the photographers (so please don't harass our mothers for documentation too much!).  The only pictures we have at the moment are from the photo booth (which only exist on this site and the disc the photo booth people gave me) and the kind guests who sent us some of theirs from cameras and/or cell phones. 

Most of everything that I have is available under Pictures on this site.  So if you have pictures, please send some on to me so that I'll be able to enjoy them, too.  And if you don't, then sit back and relax, and we'll show the professional photos to you when they're good and ready.  Thanks!
