My husband Andrew and I eloped on October 2, 2010 and with me going to grad school and Andrew in between professions, we really never had enough time or money to plan a reception soon after. When the glow of our elopement started to die down I had a lot of people anxious for a delayed reception. The vision in my head was going to take some time to plan so we decided to wait for our one year anniversary to celebrate our marriage complete with the first dances, speeches, and cutting the (cheese) cake!
One of my favorite things about our party was the photo booth we set up. For a while I’ve had this picture in my head of setting up a living room set outside. So we did just that! I borrowed a yellow couch from a friend, Andrew made a beautiful coffee table, I painted on an old suitcase, and we bought a lovely antique lamp from a thrift store. I set up my camera on a tripod with a 10 sec timer so our guests could take their photos when ever they felt comfortable and with the help of our photographers we set up lights as well. It turned out exactly as I had imagined!
Here are some photos of our amazing photo booth:
