Wedtron's origin story -- how it all began...

A few years ago when I got married, I wanted to do something to make our wedding different and fun. I always felt that wedding receptions were a lot of waiting around. So I came up with an idea to let our guests text their greetings and well wishes and have it appear on a screen at our reception. My fiancé at the time was fine with it as long as we got everything else done. So amidst all the wedding planning I was able to code up something just in time for the event. (I kid you not I was coding at the hotel breakfast buffet before I had to get all dressed up for photos right before the ceremony). The reception of Wedtron at our wedding reception was clear, it was a hit!


Fast forward a few years later, my brother in law was getting married and I wanted to make his and his bride's reception even more fun. So I made some improvements and set up the Wedtron up again but this time with photos and it was an even bigger hit. So much that a few guests asked if I could do it for their events. So here is the Wedtron for everyone else.
