Photo booths are the perfect way to make any wedding unforgettable and entertain guest! This new trend of wedding photography is a unique experience allowing wedding attendants to participate in creative, fun group photos. Adding fun props such as posters, glasses, tiaras, mustaches, hats, masks and wigs create humor and excitement for guests. Photo booths do not just have to be used for entertainment for the guests, they can also be used before the wedding by the bride and groom sending out their Save-the Date. The photos from your wedding’s photo booths can also be made into a guest book for the bride and groom to treasure forever. A recent Kate and Company wedding incorporated a photo booth at their wedding…here are some photos from Megan and Jake Schmidt’s wedding!

Guests loved all the fun props available

Top 2012 Trend Thirteen: A Mismatched Wedding

by

From bridesmaid dresses to boutonnieres, the trend for a 2012
wedding is to have less symmetry than ever before! Standing at the altar with carbon
copy bridesmaids is out, while letting your bridesmaid choose dresses in different
colors, styles, lengths, and patterns is in. Let your bridesmaids wear a dress
that fits their own unique figure, style, and personality. And, that they will wear again!
Although mismatching is the trend, we suggest keeping a
central theme in order to keep the entire ceremony unified, polished, and stylish. The possibilities of how to
pull this trend off are endless! Here are a few tips: 
  • Pick the exact same dress in the different
    tones of your wedding color palette. This creates a stylish look and gives your bridal party a
    pop of color.
  • For the groomsmen, let them choose from different colored
    boutonnieres or ties.
  • Use the same color, but different shades. This
    idea works great for both the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Pantone
    color books
    or paint fan books from your local hardware store make great
    sources of inspiration to start. 
  • Give your bridesmaids the exact color and fabric
    you would like them to wear and let them come up with their own dress. 
  • Want to keep it simple? Have the same dress
    for all of your bridesmaids and mismatch the accessories. From necklaces,
    shoes, bouquets, and earrings, you have an endless amount of possibilities!

The Knot Cocktails & Connection

by

Location: Bentley Projects – Phoenix, Arizona

Inspiration: Green, Glam, Vintage, Industrial, Chic

Details: We loved creating the “Green Glam” theme to showcase how an event can be modern with a touch of urban rust! Bentley Project’s historical building was the perfect backdrop for The Knot’s eco-chic Cocktails and Connections party! Simple and stunning vignettes pairing succulents, fruits and flowers with eclectic up cycled bricks, containers and glass set the tone for an evening designed to create a sophisticated and natural space. The grand center wood table resting atop oak wine barrels with terrariums and tea lights was a unique earthy gathering place to nosh and network.

Memorable Moments: Hearing the “scentsational” ohs and ahs as guests received a welcoming spritz at our aroma mist bar then handed a sparkling Joy Juice Elixir cocktail. Lingering visits at the sumptuous organic chocolate and champagne bar. Foods made by local/sustainable purveyors with mouthwatering favorites like the poblano fries and chimayo braised pork sliders with lavender and spearmint yogurt. Laughs and fun poses at the photo lounge while sitting on our lush vintage couches holding “Go Green or Go Home” signs.
