(KSTU) -- If technology has taught us one thing, it's that a lot has changed in 20 years.

A couple was married in Salt Lake City 20 years ago Tuesday, and they streamed portions of the wedding live on what many of us then called the world wide web.

It was an impressive technological feat in 1998 that required specialized equipment, but here in 2018 it's a process so simple many use it every day. Tuesday the groom used the streaming capabilities on his cell phone to speak to Fox 13 from Washington D.C. for this interview.

Nick and Leah Taylor reminisced about their big day and reminisced about a time when smartphones didn't exist and laptops barely fit in a lap.
