Art Dinner at Laguna Gloria

Can we have this night on repeat please?

 The Contemporary Austin planned and hosted the Fifth Annual Art Dinner in celebration at Laguna Gloria, one of the dreamiest venues in Austin. Although we may be bias, check out video of the venue here. There were exhibitions by world-renowned artists to display their sculptures and contemporary work, honoring their creativity.

 The guests were dressed to the nines in their vibrant elegant attire, as requested by The Contemporary Austin. Every detail from the place setting at dinner to guests broaches and cufflinks were awe-worthy. We wanted to keep the vibrant elegance, and our photo booth was paired with a streamer backdrop provided by The Color Condition and a velvet loveseat. Our set up proves you don’t have to stand for a photo op if you can pair it with well-designed furniture! We added the Art Dinner sponsors along with the logo to the image overlay, which is one of the many perks we offer for sponsors! You can read more about the power of sponsorship on our blog here.

 We had the best time with the guests at Laguna Gloria and we’re already looking forward to next year’s dinner. Congratulations to all the recognized artists!

Six Reasons Why a Photo Booth is the Perfect Addition to Your Wedding

Imagine this moment… the partner of your dreams gets down on one knee. They start telling you how much you mean to them, you’re the love of their life, they can’t live without you. Then comes the big question comes, “Will you marry me?”. You say yes, then your next thought… “Oh I can’t wait to book a photo booth for our big day!”

 That’s how it goes, right?

 No, not exactly. But we can dream.

Fast forward several months down the line and you’re planning the details of your reception. When you start thinking about what you want to have at your party, a photo booth seems like a no-brainer. You saw how much fun guests had with the photo booth at your best friend’s wedding last fall, and you know it’s a must-have. However, you want to make sure having a photo booth adds value to your reception, not something that just takes up space in the back corner, and we’re here to help.

Here are six reasons why having a photo booth at your wedding is the perfect addition:

1. It’s the perfect wedding favor from your big day. A photograph from a photo booth is truly a memory from your wedding, unlike a koozie or shot glass that will likely be left at the reception or end up in the junk drawer at home as soon after the big day is over. Photo booth prints are displayed on refrigerators, office desks, in a picture frame, or a background image of a phone. Your wedding reception is now on repeat for all of your guests as they look at the images from your photo booth every day.

2. It’s all-night entertainment for everyone. Although it may be hard to admit, not every person at your wedding will be dancing all night, no matter how many times you play Shape of You by Ed Sheeran. You may also have some guests that aren’t frequenting the bar either. A photo booth is entertainment for your guests without the pressure of needing to have wicked dance moves or liquid courage.

3. Your guests can be themselves. You know those formal photos with the wedding party and family that are taken right after the ceremony? It’s not always appropriate to have your guests or party show off their personality. That’s where a photo booth comes in. They can be goofy and make funny faces with no fear of judgment- because the sillier, the better.

4. A photo booth can glam up an otherwise boring corner of your reception. When you’re planning your reception you want to maximize your space. You’ve got your DJ or stage, tables, dance floor, food and bar, but there’s one corner in your reception hall that doesn’t satisfy your aesthetic. You secretly hope no one will notice the bare and boring corner, but wish you had something to glam up that part of the room. A photo booth with a charming backdrop in that corner will encourage your guests to have fun.

5. Your photographer loves us. You hired your photographer to focus on you for the day, and they won’t have time to take photos of Aunt Susie with every single one of her nieces and nephews. A photo booth will allow all your guests to take photos until they get one they enjoy and will share, all without distracting your photographer.

6. Your guests can share photos instantly. Long gone are the days where your guests have to wait for the photos of the big day to be uploaded, edited and then sent out several weeks later. We live in a world of instant gratification, so all our booths come equipped with digital sharing. As soon as the photo is taken, they can share it through text or email so they can post on social media.

There are several more reasons why a photo booth is a perfect addition, but we narrowed it down to our top six. Want to learn more about a photo booth for your party? Email our sales team kati@ohhappydaybooth.com.

Katie & Jamie's Wedding at InterContinental Stephen F. Austin

 There was magic in the air for Katie and Jamie’s December wedding.

The couple had their reception at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin in downtown Austin. During the reception, they did a choreographed dance to Bruno Mars “24 Karat Magic” and had the guests engaged and entertained the entire time. As if the reception wasn’t sweet enough, their wedding cake was a cut to resemble our state’s flag. That’s what we call Texas pride, y’all.

 We kept it classy with our portrait booth paired and our gold sequin backdrop. The couple loved the concept of an old school photo booth so we designed the print outs to resemble photo booth strips. The photo booth was packed all night with friends and family documenting their fun. We wish this wedding were on repeat every weekend to relive the enjoyable night!

 Congratulations to Katie and Jamie on their big day and marriage!

Feathers & Frosting Cake Tasting Event

Cake for breakfast? Sign us the heck up.

We’ve done two cake tasting events for Danae at Feathers and Frosting, and without fail we always leave with a car seat full of cake on the drive home (most of which won’t make it past the end of the week). We were so excited to be a part of this event and work alongside such amazing vendors. We knew we wanted to use the white brick wall as the photo booth backdrop for our selfie station set up. We’re big supporters fo a sleek and simple aesthetic. Between photos and boomerangs, the boomerangs were the crowd favorite, and guests decided to use the faux cakes as props!

The Beauty Co Lab Event | Austin Boomerang Booth

We got to be a part of the very first Beauty Co Lab event, which was started by Rachel Daugherty of Peppermint Pedi Parlor and Billy Mercer of LipServiceXO in an effort to join forces for the greater good of the local beauty industry. Our mantra is simple: collaboration over competition. Their clients expect the best, and so do ours, so it was the perfect fit! The event took place at The Refinery in downtown Austin and we set up our Selfie Station to document all the fun. The Flower Social made the cutest floral backdrop and even created some adorable flower rings that guests could wear as props. 

We will be joining them again for more photo booth fun on June 3rd, so get your tickets here
