Wedding Bell Blues. Blue Backgrounds, that is.

Weddings. What fun. Start with the official, serious stuff that turns a couple of single folks into a married couple of folks. Follow that with the celebration that makes it worth the travel expenses. And the gifts. And seeing all those relatives. And the new in-laws. Wild times, I tell you.

Of course, you've got to have this in a place. We call that a "venue". Yeah, you pay more for a venue than a place. But you want the service and celebration to be memorable for all the right reasons. Of course, when Grinnin' Booth is there, folks will remember. In fact, they'll even have a photostrip to remind them.

We had the good fortune to celebrate with a couple, recently, whose wedding and reception were held at King Family Vineyards, in Crozet, VA. The grounds are beautiful, and it was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding. Then, the guests came inside for wonderful food, along with dancing to music provided by a great local DJ, and as many trips to the photo booth as they felt like.

When we met the bride and groom at a bridal expo in February, they knew Grinnin' Booth should be part of their celebration. Crozet was a bit of a drive from the Lynchburg area, with all our gear, but we're so happy we made the trip. How'd the bride and groom feel about it? You be the judge:

Oh, yeah, they got into it. And so did the guests! We set up in the lobby, just outside the banquet hall, and at one point, so many people were out in the lobby to try on props and get their photo strips, that the photographer was taking pictures of the folks in line, just having a grand time together. The bride's father was taking video, as well. It was an experience, for sure. What did the photographer think? Well, he and his assistant took a turn, as did the DJ and the caterer. In fact, here is one of the frames with the caterer, Innovative Catering (insert unsolicited recommendation here), and some of his staff.

Now, that's a crew that has been working hard all hot day long, and they were just taking a break before the cleanup started. Well, we don't call it "Grinnin' Booth" for nothing. It makes people smile. And laugh. Sometimes, it even gets downright rowdy. What a blast we have, delivering grins!

A wedding is a great place to have Grinnin' Booth. But how about reunions? Hmmm. We'll see. Until then,

Keep Grinnin'
