Photo Booths Add to the Fun!

Having been around for several years and relatively inexpensive to rent, photo booths remain a popular choice of fun entertainment for your guests! The atmosphere at your wedding will be full of energy, so imagine slipping into a photo booth and capturing all of the fun and candid moments of your event! A quick 20 seconds after your guests exit the booth, they’ll have a photo strip which makes for an excellent party favor and can act as a “memory” gift for your guests to take home. To enhance the entertainment value, many companies offer prop packages so the guests can dress up in fantasy costumes, boas, cowboy hats, fedoras, and mustaches. You want everyone to have a great time on your special day, and a photo booth is a perfect choice to let your guests remember all the fun they had at your wedding for years to come.

A must-have in the Wine Country is pairing your wedding menu with fabulous wine. If this is not your expertise, ask assistance from your wedding planner, caterer, or site manager on pairing wine with each course. They will make recommendations that will not only make your food and wine taste better, but will make for an outstanding tasting experience for your guests. Be sure to add the wine selections to your dinner menu so your guests will know what is being poured. Cheers…and bon appétit!
