This article is a part of our productivity series that explores how CloudMagic simplifies digital life and overall productivity. Let’s hear from Embree Walker, who officiated a friend’s wedding with a little help from CloudMagic. This article has been edited for brevity and clarity.

How it started

My friend Will Holditch and his fiancée were very excited about getting married. But, the pastor who was to marry them had backed out and left them without an alternative. Realizing they needed someone to officiate their wedding, I volunteered. Wedding was scheduled on New Year’s eve, 2014 at Pilot Knob Vineyard, Texas.

The never-ending list

Being a wedding officiant meant that I had to write the wedding ceremony, write the homily (or sermon), build the music selection, help with other planning aspects and then some. The list of tasks was never-ending and there was a lot to be done!

Tools that helped

For my email, I use CloudMagic which is an awesome email app, replacing the Apple’s default Mail app. To me, what sets CloudMagic apart as an email app is the integration with apps like Evernote and Todoist using the “Cards” function, allowing emails to be placed into other apps directly! It’s a great productivity tool and a HUGE timesaver. I am equally addicted to Evernote, Todoist and Dropbox.

How I did it

As and when I got a relevant email, I would push it to Evernote using CloudMagic Cards (which is beyond measure, extremely helpful), and everything else, I would store directly to Evernote. CloudMagic also has the reminder feature which reminds me to follow up on key messages. As I was writing the ceremony in Evernote, I would send a copy via email for their review. This way, I had everything organized.

Happy Ending

Needless to say the marriage ceremony and reception went perfectly and I was able to do my part as a first time officiant. I had some great tools that helped me make the celebration go very well.

My two cents

Always look for tools which help you in getting the job done, have features to support your efforts, integrate with one another, have attentive support information and a professional staff to stand behind them. After all, technology is suppose to make our life easy! I know CloudMagic and these other tools will support all of us for many years to come.
