If there's two things I love, it's weddings and technology, and that's why I'm so thrilled to be a Verizon Influencer. I love marrying my love for weddings and technology by sharing the latest techy trends and tutorials for your big day! Technology has impacted the world in so many amazing ways, and one of the biggest ways it comes into play with your big day is via social media. Thanks to smartphones, pretty much everyone has a mini computer in their pocket, which allows you to connect with people all over the world like never before.

Between Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Periscope and now Snapchat, there are more ways than ever to share your wedding festivities via your favorite social media platforms. These days, my platform of choice seems to be Snapchat… I am actually a little bit obsessed with it if I'm being honest!
If you're looking for ways to personalize your wedding day even further with the help of social media, maybe you should consider making a custom Snapchat geofilter! In case you're not familiar with Snapchat or their awesome geofilters, basically you can take photos or videos and add custom graphics as an overlay based on your location. So if you wanted to have a custom filter for your big day, you'd set a certain area around your wedding venue so that anyone using Snapchat in the area could use your geofilter on their photos and videos (or snaps, as they call them.) Super fun right? Check out this tutorial for how to make your own Snapchat geofilter from my friend Mindy of This Fairy Tale Life!
Not a graphic designer? No problem! Thanks so this amazing company Filtered Vows, you can now have custom Snapchat filters created for you by their team of designers. They are completely customized to your wedding theme, color scheme, names, date and more!

You can have filters for different parts of your day from getting ready to the getaway at the end of the night. I just love the added layer of personalization and fun that these filters add to the festivities! Just look at some of the gorgeous filters they've created:
