Sedona’s mom and dad (Paula and Eric) booked our photo booth at the suggestion of Kristin at Orange Tree Golf Course. I looked at the contract dated August 14, 2014 and all of a sudden, a year has passed. We have had our photo booth rental set up in various locations at Orange Tree. This time, we were set up in the ballroom in the corner. It is perfect because we are out of the way, but everyone can see us. Unlike the traditional cookie cutter photo booth that sits in a corner, the guests took pictures the entire time. The only time pictures were not taken at the photo booth was during the candle lighting ceremony and speeches.
The theme of Sedona’s Bat Mitzvah was Dr. Who and Eric made a really cool Dr. Who teleporter that the kids went into. There was even a light in the teleporter! Paula had originally wanted a Dr. Who green screen but ultimately decided on the blue and white backdrop. I think that visually, a fabric backdrop looks better, rather than having a green fabric backdrop.
The DJ and MC for Sedona’s Bat Mitzvah was Living Energy Events and Productions. They were great! The kids had a lot of fun and the DJ was dancing along with the kids. Kristin, the event coordinator at Orange Tree is absolutely wonderful to work with. Orange Tree Golf Course is one of our favorite venues. She is very hands-on with the planning and throughout the setup, she was directing her staff to ensure the room was perfect prior to the guests coming into the room.
Brandon and Sarah’s photo booth at their wedding reception at An Old Town Wedding and Event Center was scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., but because the guests were having so much fun, Brandon added an extra hour. The wedding colors were mint green, blush pink, and brown, so I chose those colors in our background for the photo booth pictures. Of course, any time our photo booths are outside, the sun and play a part. Fortunately, as the sun went down, so did the wind — and so did the fun. Brandon and Sarah only wanted frames for their props because they didn’t want their guests faces to be hidden in the pictures. This surely did not minimize the fun they had.
An Old Town Wedding is a very quaint, family-owned, wedding venue. The owners were extremely nice and prior to the ceremony, we had a chance to talk to them to learn how they started their business.
I have known Mahesha for most of her life and when she asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to be the photo booth at her wedding reception, I was more than happy to do it. We chose a beautiful gold backdrop for her pictures and the pictures were stunning. What also made this wedding reception special for me was my oldest daughter was in the wedding and looked beautiful in a sari. Mahesha looked beautiful and it was also great to see all of her friends that I have known for many years.
The Tire Industry Association had their Off the Road Conference at Westin La Paloma. We were set up at the beginning of the conference when the guests would arrive. The background was a green screen with the Off the Road Conference as the background. Almost all of the people checking in were men and most of the men wanted to wait until their wives got their to get their pictures taken, some of whom were laying by the pool because of the beautiful weather. For others, it took little coaxing, but when they saw the Viking helmet, a picture was taken. This was our second visit to Westin La Paloma. This time, we were set up in the lobby. When we weren’t busy taking pictures, it was nice getting to know the ladies checking in the guests.
Almost all of the guests were from other parts of the country. We met people from Moscow and Canada, as well. The Tucson weather was beautiful and the guests from back east took advantage of being out of the snow and ice.
What can I say about this wedding? First of all, I was honored that Chelsey and Dan asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to be part of her day. Chelsey is a good friend of my daughter who lives in California, who was also in the wedding. Chelsey also used to help me with the photo booth when we first started the business. I got to see my daughter and watch Chelsey marry Dan. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their journey together and was so happy that they finally tied the knot. We have been to the Windmill Winery many times, but this time was truly the most special for us. #ohshitthehuleatts #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrental #digitalexpressionsphotobooths
Rebecca and Anthony’s wedding and reception were held at Garden Tuscana in Mesa, a hidden gem on Main Street and Gilbert Road. Every single person associated with this venue went above and beyond for the wedding couple and for the photo booth rental. We were set up in an alcove off the main ballroom — a perfect place for the photo booth and out of the way so guests taking pictures at the photo booth. The bride chose a silver sequins backdrop for the photo booth pictures and since the venue’s lights turned different colors throughout the evening, these colors were incorporated into the silver backdrop throughout the night.
The Croft Downtown is where Ally and Andrew had their wedding ceremony and reception. This is one of the quaintest venues I have seen and I absolutely loved it. Ally’s wedding colors were hunter green and champagne, so I found the perfect template for her photo booth pictures, that also went with the decor of the reception. There were 180 guests at the reception and there was plenty of room for everyone. The photo booth was a hit and all of the guests had a great time taking pictures. #herecomethesloans #photoboothrental #photoboothrentalphoenix
Raquel and Terry’s wedding and reception at the JW Marriott, Camelback Inn, was beautiful. The backdrop used for the photo booth pictures was a grass wall with their wedding flowers. Raquel wanted strips for her photo booth pictures and because I didn’t know what the wall would look like, I kept the template to the pictures simple, but incorporated her wedding colors. Hayley, Raquel and Terry’s wedding planner, and her team were easy to work with and extremely helpful.
Macy’s Call Center had their award ceremony on March 20th, acknowledging the top 100 employees (out of 800) for their accomplishments. The theme of the ceremony was “Make Magic Happen” and the employees took full advantage of taking pictures at the photo booth rental. Digital Expressions Photo Booths was honored to be part of their ceremony. I always enjoy listening to upper management praising their employees for jobs well done.
Vi and Thao’s wedding reception was held at Blackstone Country Club in Peoria, an outdoor venue. Digital Expressions Photo Booths follows Blackstone on Instagram and was very excited to visit this venue. The weather initially called for rain and wind and fortunately, there was no rain. Vi and Thao’s wedding colors were lilac and pink with some grey, so I chose this template for their photo booth pictures. The couple also used our photo album as their guestbook.
Rebecca and Steve’s wedding and reception was held at Soho 63, one of our favorite venues. This time, our photo booth rental was set up on the back patio just outside the reception room. This was a formal wedding and their wedding colors were silver, black, and white. Congratulations, Rebecca and Steve! #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrental #puttinontherix
