Wedding Photo Booths

One trend from 2008 that I’d love to see continue is photo booths. I attended a few weddings with them last year, and they were huge hits. Guests went bananas taking fun, crazy pictures for the bride and groom!

Denon & Doyle’s San Francisco Photo Booth has a fun alternative to an actual booth called the Photo Bar. Your guests can strike a pose and their photo bartender will project their photo shoot on a 42” plasma display so everyone can join in the fun. Partygoers can pick their favorite picture and have it mounted on a 2“x3” framed keychain that’s personalized with custom graphics.

Denon & Doyle's San Francisco Photo BoothWhether it’s a classic photo booth or the newer “booth with out a booth” style, this is a great way to entertain your guests—plus you get amazing candid shots of your friends and family.

If you’re thinking of having a photo booth at your wedding, check out our Certified By The Guide Photo Booth companies in Northern and Southern California. They’ve been through our rigorous certification process, so you can trust that you are booking with a quality company.

Raspberry, Plum, Cocoa

I occasionally get to work at actual weddings with some of our fantastic Certified By The Guide event professionals, like floral designer Nancy Liu Chin.

To get you in the wedding mood, here’s a little inspiration from her own blog, Brown Bag:

Nancy Liu ChinIt really is a fruity kind of year. Hues of raspberry, plum, and deep strawberry seem to surface every week. This beautiful wedding, photographed by the talented Jennifer Skog, is a perfect example. Our gorgeous bride (and I mean gorgeous) took my breath away. Her eyes are just stunning. Her dress fabulous. The décor lush. It’s my kind of wedding. It’s my kind of year. See for yourself.

Reception held at City Club. Coordinator is Cindy Danbom of Belle Notte. Cake by Cakework. Rentals from Classic Party Rentals.
