Nick and Laura's Brazos Hall Wedding

Ohhhh What-a-night!

 Laura and Nick’s wedding was one for the books! The bride and groom got married at Brazos Hall in Austin on a perfect evening in March. We loved the inclusivity of the families as the father’s intro was translated in Spanish and English to show a unity of family. They had an energetic mariachi band during the reception and had everyone dancing, literally everyone. We’ve seen a trend in couples delivering a late night snack for their reception guests and it never disappoints. A late night snack is perfect for the avid dancer that’s burned all their calories,  for the guest that has had one too many, or if you’re like us, just hungry 24/7. Laura and Nick had the Texas staple Whataburger delivered to their guests! If you’re a Texan through and through, your mouth is already salivating thinking about it.

 The couple decided last minute to upgrade to the boxwood wall as a backdrop for their portrait booth. We have a partnership with this company for our boxwood walls and we love the way it makes a statement as a backdrop! The couple also upgraded with a photo guest book and guests left the sweetest messages that will be cherished by the couple forever. We focused on keeping the floral theme with our overlay and a simple font. The last minute backdrop change was the perfect addition and we’re so happy with how it was all tied together!

Congratulations to Laura and Nick!

Lauren and Keegan's Wedding

We spent our evening at the charming Green Pastures, part of Mattie’s, in South Austin for Lauren and Keegan’s wedding and we couldn’t have dreamt of a more sophisticated night!

 The newly married couple decided to have a map out on display so their guests could flag where they traveled from, showing us their guests showered them with love literally from all over the world. In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple organized donations to two different charities so guests could donate an amount that was going to a great cause. The couple handed out Tiff’s Treats as the perfect way to end an already sweet night!

The couple loved the concept of props and wanted to keep it fun and interactive with their guests without overwhelming them with a million choices. We created props that were simple but still allowed guests to show off their personality! For the classy and charming night, we used our marble backdrop and paired a scripted font with a geometric pattern overlay to tie it all together and absolutely loved the look.

 Congratulations to Lauren and Keegan!

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!
