We met Deanna and Eric back at Sarah and Austin's wedding at Camp Lucy, and we were so excited when they reached out about booking the photo booth for their own wedding! Of course, our rose gold backdrop only added to the fun, and matched their decor perfectly. We had such a great time hanging out with all their family and friends and were so grateful they chose us to be their photo booth vendor for their big day. 

Congrats, Deanna and Eric!

Kait & Zach's Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin | Austin Photo Booth

Kait and Zach's wedding at the Four Seasons was hands-down one of our favorites to date! We got to set up the photo booth a bit early for their reception, which allowed us to see their reception decorations before all the fun began. The entire day was full of special details that we were totally obsessed with, like the custom dance floor monogram, their pedicab send-off and of course we loved how their print template perfectly matched their wedding invitations! Plus, working with vendors like Pearl Events, The Inviting Pear and Texas Pro DJ is always a treat! 

It was so obviously how loved this couple was just by listening to the speeches that were made following dinner. Kait's dad explained that she was a swimmer when she was young, and when they stayed at the Four Seasons when they came to town for a big swim meet, 11-year-old Kait turned to her dad and said "I'm going to get married here." Fast forward and here she is, marrying the love of her life in one of the prettiest venues in Texas and we still can't believe we got to be a part of it!

Predicting the Trend: Fall Jewel Tones

A guest post by Pearl Events


It’s been a long hot summer, and we’re ready to trade our floppy hats and sandals for cozy sweaters and nights around the bonfire! This season, we’re excited to work with some of our favorite fall jewel tones. Here are some tips on how to incorporate these trendy shades into your wedding day décor!

1.     Stationery

Welcome your guests with a richly colored invite! Flat matte cardstocks look elegant and presentable. Accent these dark backgrounds with metallic copper or gold script and add a signature monogram or image to personalize your stationery.

2.     Bridal Party

A bold way to introduce color is through the bridal party. Groomsmen may wear your chosen shade on a bowtie, necktie, boutonniere, or even suspenders and socks for a subtler touch of color.Bridesmaids may make a more striking statement donning full length jewel toned gowns, or keep it understated with a statement shoe or hairpiece.

3.     Florals

Our favorite!! Work with your florist to design custom florals that incorporate your favorite fall hues. They’ll know just what colors to pair to create designs that are uniquely yours.

4.     Cake

Use your cake – the perfect blank canvas – to compliment your jewel toned color palette with wooden accents or touches of copper or gold.

We'd like to thank Pearl Events for collecting some really great tips on how to incorporate jewel tones into a wedding! We completely agree that these hues will likely be extremely popular this season and we can't wait to see it in action. Of course, if you're looking for a way to incorporate your photo booth into this color scheme, we suggest pulling these shades into your print design, and picking a really great backdrop that will match the aesthetics of your reception as well. We're anticipating our gold, dark grey and white backdrops to be in heavy rotation this fall if lots of couples are choosing this color palette! 

How to prepare for a top-notch photo booth experience | Best Austin Photo Booth

We've seen it all...

After being around the block a few times, we've encountered just about every obstacle there is when it comes to surprise set up locations at events. To prevent these instances from happening twice, we do our best to make sure brides, planners and all other clients know what it takes for a great photo booth experience at their event! 

Here is what our photo booth requires for our signature top-notch experience!

  1. Put the photo booth in an obvious location. Too many times we've seen clients place us outside of the main event hall. If guests can't see us, we're out of sight and out of mind, which just plain stinks! Just in case you're worried about us being distracting during speeches or dances, we make it a point to temporarily stop the photo booth during those times (and turn off our light) so we're not taking attention away from the special moment! 
  2. Acessibility. Make sure the route we'll need to take to get to the set up space is wheelchair accessible. Until someone creates an affordable, futuristic,  stair-climbing rolling cart for all of our gear, we prefer elevators and wheelchair ramps. Plus, you want to make sure any disabled guests can access the photo booth once we're up and running! If our only option is a non-wheelchair accessible route, we can make it happen, but there is a small fee that will need to be added to the invoice.
  3. Space requirements.  We need a space that is at least 6’ long by 9’ wide by 10' high, but a 10'x10'x10' space is ideal! Make sure to leave space for a line as well.
  4. Power. We need a wall outlet (110V, 10 amps, 3 prong outlet) that is dedicated for the photo booth. Sharing an outlet with a bunch of other things like the DJ or lighting can sometimes overpower the plug, but we have a 20 foot extension cord that can help us reach a far away outlet if needed.
  5. Place the photo booth indoors. Austin weather is unpredictable, and who wants to go outside and get all sweaty just to take a photo? Be proactive and carve out a space for us inside your event hall so weather is never an issue! If your only option is to put the photo booth outside, we can be placed on concrete under an awning, like a porch, or under a 10x10 tent with three tarp walls to protect the backdrop from wind. Also, if you're feeling a bit generous, a portable a/c unit or fan will keep our attendant happy and energized to entertain your guests!  The photo booth may not be placed on grass or wet ground. 
  6. Keep the photo booth away from sunlight. Sunlight shining on the photo booth creates harsh shadows on the guests taking photos (not to mention it causes squinty eyes!), but also be wary of putting the backdrop against a window during daylight hours since the light might shine through the backdrop.  On the subject of light, make sure there aren't any pot lights or chandeliers right above the photo booth. Those sometimes cause crazy shadows! If there is a light above the photo booth, it can either be turned off or the lightbulb can be sneakily unscrewed and then replaced after the event!
  7. Provide a 6-foot table with a linen that matches the rest of your event decor. We highly encourage all our clients to do this because it makes the photo booth look like it actually belongs at your event, and is not just an afterthought stuck in the corner. We also like to have at least one separate cocktail table to place near the photo booth, so guests have a spot to set their drinks while they cheese it up in the booth! If you want to make the space look really luxurious, repurpose a floral arrangement from your ceremony and place it on a corner of the table near the photo booth, or create a special sign that says "Photo Booth" or one that has your event hashtag on it. 

That may seem like a lot, but at most of the Austin venues we've encountered, there are usually a handful of set up options. If you're struggling with how the photo booth will work in your space, shoot us an email and we'll be happy to explain what we've done at your venue before!
