Nicole’s mom booked Digital Expressions Photo Booths for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in September 2017. All of a sudden, October 2018 is here. Time flies! Nicole’s theme for her party was Times Square. Nicole’s mom wanted the first half to be a green screen and the second half to be regular pictures. We spent a lot of time going back and forth regarding the backgrounds for the green screen and she ended up choosing the background on the left. What was cool about this is when we went to set up at the venue, the picture on the left was the picture at the back of the room. I had asked Nicole’s mom if she chose the picture in the room and she said it was chosen by her event coordinator. The night was a huge success.
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.
