Bella Amore on Enchanted Acres

The beautiful Bella Amore on Enchanted Acres is a luxurious wedding venue in northern Ohio with gorgeous, lush land and an almost Italian-style architecture and feel.

Here, you can get married in nature, amongst the trees, and beside your loved ones. Then, enjoy celebrating in the stone “barn” located nearby the ceremony.

The venue is brand new, opened last June of 2018 and since they’ve opened, wedding couples are filling the reservation list.

The stone building had a large ballroom which held the dining, the giving of speeches, playing wedding games, dancing, and of course, photoboothing!

There were glamorous hanging chandeliers all across the ceiling and an elegant color scheme of deep purple and grey.

As you walk in, the waterfall wall may be one of the first sights that may catch your eye, the waterfall flows down into an ice pond which the guests could use for their drinks.

The unique style of decor is quite eye-catching, even the bathrooms are draped in vegetation, deep purple, and shiny gold.

The exceptionally photogenic landscape and reception building along with the inclusive, intimate atmosphere and eloquent design,

Bella Amore on Enchanted acres truly sets the bar high.

After dinner was finished, the party really got started. The DJ cranked up the jams and people began to flock to the photobooth, trying all sorts of prop combinations; colorful hats, overly-sized glasses, masks, mustaches, boas, and more!

The night seemed to fly by and before we knew it, their scrapbook was completely filled with precious memories and hilarious moments. Other than everything being brand-spanking new,

I never would have known that Bella Amore on Enchanted Acres had just opened a year ago. What a success!

Contemporary Versus Vintage Weddings

The most important task after getting the ring is finding the right venue. To do this you have to ask yourself are you a traditional couple with the black tux, white dress, and church venue?

Or are you the “step out of bounds” couple with the bright color dress, James Bond tux, and the vintage hall? Both wedding styles are beautiful and make the most of their historic value in different ways.

The Monastery Event Center in Cincinnati, Ohio is a great example.
True to its name this venue embraces its history in the best way.

How to choose the right venue and overall style for your wedding!

If you’re more traditional and you hear church bells when you think of your wedding The Monastery is the venue for you. A unique setting that can house both a ceremony and reception. Their courtyard is perfect for invaluable photos and even those who opt for an outdoor ceremony. They have also resurrected the historic “Golden Wedding Champagne” for their guests. In fact, couples who book with the venue receive free personalized champagne flutes. What better way to help commemorate your big day?

Richmond, IN

On the flip side is the vintage Starr Gennett Building, rich in jazz music history. They keep the music alive through live concerts but also through music education sessions. If you’re in the area you can see The Walk of Fame recurring every September and even their tributes to Shakespeare throughout July. Ultimately this open venue is a distinctive choice and the ideal venue for those dreaming of a vintage venue with a bit of nature. It is located in a public park right by a river for lovely photos. With its already perfect location, you can decorate and make it yours!

No matter what you choose the most important part of any wedding is the people you share your special day with. The love, the laughter, and unforgettable memories. Of course, we here at Picture Perfect are also happy to help you make memories and make it a perfect day!

What Makes a Great Wedding?

For many, their wedding day is the single most anticipated event of someone’s lifetime. It is a day when attention is focused on the bride and groom. To some extent, attention is focused on individual aspects of the celebration itself, as a reflection of the bride and groom.

This is where much of the anxiety associated with weddings arises from; the idea that if any part of the wedding does not go as planned, that bad apple may “spoil the bunch”.

I am part of a company that has spent 10,000 hours at weddings across the country. As someone who has spent over 1,000 hours at weddings, on behalf of Picture Perfect Photo Booth Rentals, I can say that ‘conventional wisdom’ about what makes weddings ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is categorically untrue.

What makes a good wedding, then?

I can’t define a perfect wedding in abstract terms- yet. However, in the words of Justice Potter Stewart, “I know it when I see it”.

Let’s start off by listing what a great wedding is not:

A great wedding is NOT an event where every last detail goes as planned, where nothing is left to chance. I’ve been to weddings where bad weather threw a wrench into the works. I’ll never forget a wedding I attended with a Photo Booth, where a storm was threatening to bear down on what was supposed to be an outdoor affair.

During the ceremony, the wedding officiant asked if “anyone can show just cause why this couple cannot be lawfully joined together in matrimony”. A booming thunderclap filled the air, seeming to be a sign of almighty disapproval. I’ve scarcely heard harder laughter at a wedding in my life. In fact, mishaps at weddings are more often the highlight of a wedding. These moments anchor memories of the event to a feeling of ironic humor.

As Carol Burnett said, “comedy is tragedy, plus time”. Whether it’s during your wedding day or during a big speech, never forget that if it’ll be funny later, it’s funny now.

A truly great wedding is also NOT an event where no expense is spared. I’ve been to extravagant, forgettable weddings as much as I’ve been to low-budget, seemingly legendary weddings. Many people have the idea that more beautiful objects make for a more pleasant and notable event. However, this is not a rule that proves true every time. What do you remember most about the last wedding you attended?

Was it the decor? The intricate centerpieces? An ice sculpture? Or was is that one memory you have with your family and friends? When Aunt Lou busted a move on the dance floor. When Cousin Dave made that unforgettable speech. When you saw your old friends from the other side of the country.

So, what is the thread that runs through these memorable weddings?

It is the memories that are made that help make your special day unforgettable. It is people, not objects, that contribute to a memorable day. This is why it has been such fun to work with a company like Picture Perfect Photo Booth Rentals. While a proper photographer is a must-have at weddings, it is the photo booth that encourages guests to let their hair down and have fun.

When else would you see Mom and Dad happily dress up as Spider-Man and Darth Vader to take pictures throughout the night? Not at a time when the open bar is out of arm’s reach, perhaps, but with a photo booth, it is almost guaranteed. With the complimentary scrapbook and online gallery that Picture Perfect provides with every Photo Booth rental (in addition to the unlimited print-outs during the event), these memories will be with you for life. It is one of the few gifts you will receive at a wedding that can be looked back on for decades.

Whatever it is that you choose to have on your special day, focus on the memories that will be made, not the gilded appearance of the event. Nobody has complete control over what takes place, despite what some “Bridezillas” may lead you to believe. Above all, be mindful of what happens throughout the day. You’ll only have your first wedding once. If you focus too much on what you think things should be like, you’ll miss out on what is truly important.

Good luck!

Paul Brown Stadium

We were excited when the newlyweds, Matt and Laura, invited us to celebrate with them at Paul Brown Stadium (PBS), home of the Cincinnati Bengals. (Who Dey!)  Sports fanatic or not, Paul Brown Stadium is a beautiful place to hold a wedding. The captivating 62’ glass wall of windows allows for a majestic view of the Cincinnati skyline. From start to finish, the PBS event manager, Rachael, and her staff were very efficient and well-organized. They went above and beyond to make sure that set-up would be easy and seamless. From meeting us at the front gate, to guiding us through the East lounge, the PBS staff made every aspect of our setup a piece of cake.

Thanks to the help of Rachael and PBS staff, the night went on without a hitch; and our photo booth had a non-stop line of guests having the time of their lives. The full memory album, given to Matt and Laura, was the Picture Perfect proof of the great times everyone had. Thanks to Paul Brown Stadium, their wonderful staff, and the newlyweds for choosing Picture Perfect to help capture their wedding day memories!

Top of the Market

This past weekend, Picture Perfect Photobooth Rentals was invited back to Top of the Market Banquet Center for Sarah and Chad’s wedding reception.  I love bringing the photo booth here! Portable photo booths can have their issues, and from start to finish, Top of the Market makes it a breeze! The owners transformed this retired warehouse, located close to Downtown Dayton, into a gorgeous event center for weddings, birthday parties, and so much more. I have no trouble getting the photo booth cart up the ramps or through the doors, as the venue is easily accessible on both sides of the building.
