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!

With photo booths becoming more and more popular at receptions. Brides and grooms often ask how they can make their guests’ experience more exciting.

Below are a few suggestions we have that can make your photo booth experience really stand out!

Model participation

With our Memory Book option, after each photo session, an extra photo strip prints for guests to add to your scrapbook. They’ll have the opportunity to leave you a heartfelt personal message next to their lovely faces!

A photo booth memory book is an excellent alternative to the traditional guestbook. It gives everyone a chance to do more than just sign their names!

Our booths also gives your guests the option to record a special video message for the bride and groom on their wedding day.

With no limit, your friends can leave short, funny messages. Or grandma can leave an inspirational message with her tried-and-true marriage advice.

Social networking

Do you have a hashtag, or a web page made specific for your big day? Want to see all your guests’ photos on social media?

With access to WiFi we can help encourage your guest to share all of the best memories from the reception.

Our photo booths can post your guests’ pictures straight to Facebook and Twitter . You can share the memories with everyone in your network.

No need to take a phone photo of the printed photo strips. We will send photos straight to their phones for quick and easy sharing.

Add props

Let your guests express themselves during their photo shoot by providing a wide range of props for use in the photo booth.

Picture Perfect provides an excellent prop package to glam up your guests and get them feeling silly, but many brides and grooms make or bring along custom props, too!

With props, you can create just about any mood you want! Ask about our custom props option that match your décor, colors, or wedding theme.

Five Cleveland Cultural Things Not to Be Missed

The city of Cleveland, Ohio is full to the brim of cultural things to see and do. Let’s take a look at what Cleveland has to offer in terms of performing arts, music, and literature.

Performing Arts

Cleveland has the second-largest performing arts center in the whole of the U.S. – Playhouse Square. This is second only to the Lincoln Center in New York City.

In Playhouse Square, you will find the Ohio Theatre, Hannah Theater, Allen Theater, Palace Theater, and State Theater. This is a hub for many Broadway Musicals and the city has produced lots of well-known actors as well as the renowned comedian Bob Hope.

Elsewhere in Cleveland, there is the Karamu House. This is America’s oldest African-American theater and dates back to the 1920s.

Music

Cleveland is also home to one of the world’s best orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra. This is considered to be the finest in the U.S. During the winter, the orchestra plays at Severance Hall, in University Circle, and during the summer, it can be found at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.

During the 60s and 70s, Cleveland gained a reputation in rock music and even hosted the World Series of Rock from 1974 to 1980. If this is something you’re interested in, visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, located in downtown, Cleveland. This is a museum that celebrates the most influential and best-known figures, artists, producers, and engineers of rock and roll music.

Jazz is also popular in Cleveland and has a long history here. The Tri-C Jazz Fest is held in Cleveland every year. For jazz lovers, Bop Stop on Detroit Avenue is a great place to pay a visit.

Polka has been and continues to be, popular in Cleveland. There is even a sub-genre of polka called Cleveland-style. For those interested, there is the Polka Hall of Fame, which is worth a visit. This traces the Cleveland-style polka from its roots in Slovenia in the 19th century, through the factory and mining towns of America, to the post-war years.

If you like piano music, The Velvet Tango Room is a great location. From Monday to Thursday there are pianists from 9 pm and the cocktails are great too!

Literature

The modernist poet, Hart Crane, was born not far from Cleveland. The memorial park along the Cuyahoga left bank is dedicated to him. There is also a marker where his childhood home sat in University Circle. Elsewhere, there is a statue behind the Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University’s Campus.

If you’re into poetry, there are regular readings at many Cleveland bookstores and coffee shops.
If you’re visiting in July, the Cleveland Inkubator is a great 4-day festival that is free. It’s for writers and readers alike and offers workshops, keynote speeches, book swaps, and open mic sessions.

Another great event is hosted by the Maltz Performing Arts Center and is called the Writer’s Center Stage. This is a series of speeches and appearances by famous writers. Their website has a calendar of events where you can purchase tickets.

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!

Fun Party Hacks: 15 Fantastic Ideas for your Party

There’s something about a good party that means you’re reminiscing for years to come. When you’re a host, you want your guests to have a good time. Even better still is to create a party that is memorable for all of the right reasons. Here are 13 great party hacks that are fun whatever the occasion.

1. Keep drinks bottles cool with frozen water balloons. When they’ve melted, the fun starts! You might need to gently remind guests to check that they’re completely defrosted before launching them though!

2. If you have a punch or a bowl full of fruit salad, use a block of ice to keep it cool. You can fill a lunch box container with water and freeze it the day before. By using a block of ice, you won’t be watering down your punch or fruit salad as it will melt more slowly.

3. Use an empty jar to make whipped cream. Simply pour the cream in about half full and shake until you get the consistency you want. Then you can easily store in the fridge for use later!

4. If you’re grilling kebab skewers, use two skewers for each kebab. Why? Because when you turn them over, it stops a piece of meat or vegetables from rotating and not getting cooked on a different side.

5. Have a dedicated area or box with sunscreen and bug spray. Your guests will really appreciate the thoughtfulness.

6. Tie down your bottle opener. Not because you think someone is going to steal it, but because it means you’ll always be able to find it and so will your guests!

7. If there are lots of guests, save washing up (and running out of glasses) by encouraging them to label their glasses when they get them. This also helps save the environment if you’re using plastic glasses and cups.

8. Freeze fruit to add to drinks instead of ice cubes. This is great for kids and adults alike!

9. If your party is still going after dark, use empty wine or beer bottles as candle holders.

10. Make a playlist in advance. If you don’t know what type of music your guests are into then make it a good mix of all styles. If you have an online music streaming account, let your guests access it and choose their own music too.

11. Set up some activities to entertain your guests. This could be as simple as a set of playing cards or giant Jenga to beer pong.

12. Make sure you enjoy yourself too. Plan everything in advance and give ‘jobs’ to some guests that won’t mind helping out so that you’re not doing everything. That way, you can actually enjoy the party too! It’s probably not a good idea to get too drunk if you’re the host. After all, you want to make sure everything is OK for your guests!

13. Have a plan to wind down the party when the time’s up and have a couple of guests in on your plan too. You don’t want to be rude and kick out guests when you’ve had enough but something simple like turning down the music and beginning a clean up with bin liners might be a subtle-enough hint.

And there you have it… 13 fantastic party hacks sure to make your party one to remember forever!

Grant Gustin Brings His Superhero Charm to Our Open Air Booth

Grant Gustin, who plays the character of Barry Allen AKA “The Flash”, attended the beautiful wedding of his sister in law, Weezy Thoma, along with his wife, LA Thoma, on June 15th, to wish her a lifetime of love and everlasting happiness. The wedding theme portrayed what can be rightly called as graceful grandeur.

Grant hinted at the wedding in his June 16 Instagram post,

https://www.instagram.com/grantgust/

“Family keeps growing. EDIT: NEW BROTHER IN LAW. Not preggo.”

If you haven’t had enough of the humor and cuteness, check out this post by his wife who also officially announced the wedding through Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/lathoma3/

“my Weezy got married to her Matty Poo! She wore my veil, and I wore the same dress she wore at my wedding. It was perfect ❤️ welcome to the crazy fam Matt!”

This goes to show just how caring his wife’s side of the family is. Even Grant has mentioned several times to the media how big, thrilling, and fun LA Thoma’s family is.

The wedding took place at the Life Care Alliance’s Carrie’s Café decorated in shades of pink, navy, mint green, and white. Elegant decorations and contrasting colors beautifully captured the essence of the occasion. Not only that, Grant had a very big family reunion and even met distant relatives. This justified for a very special photo booth to make lasting memories for everyone.

We captured the loving moments of a beautiful occasion in a fun-filled way, using our Open Air Booth.  The happy family enjoyed a fun time using our special booth. They were great with poses and shots!

We also felt heartfelt joy for capturing everlasting memories for the loving couple, Grant and his family.

If you’re wondering whether the flash is as adorable and fun in real life as he is on tv, then you’re undeniably correct! 100% awkward and adorable! Look for yourself!

Grant’s family took up our challenge for fitting the most people inside the booth very seriously.
And of course, he opted for a DC Comics prop!

Our Picks From the Best Celebrity Photo Booths!

There was a time when photo booths were thought to be dying out. With the rise of digital cameras and then smartphones, photo booths were reserved for ID cards and passport photos. In the last few years, however, we’ve seen a massive rise in the popularity of photo booths at events. It seems that people missed the instant photo opportunity after all! Right now, photo booths are bang on trend, and even celebrities are jumping on the photo booth bandwagon for their events. Let’s explore some of the best star-studded photo booth pictures.

Khloe Kardashian

What party on a yacht would be complete without a celebrity photo booth? Khloe Kardashian threw a party to celebrate her boyfriend James Harden’s 26th birthday. The party was on board a yacht that left Marina del Rey in California. Khloe went for the classic black and white photo booth and it looks like she used props appropriate for the location too! Photo from Khloe’s Instagram account.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

When celebrity Jennifer Aniston and her long-term partner Justin Theroux threw their surprise wedding, they didn’t allow guests to have their smartphones. I can’t imagine a room these days where there are 70 people without a phone in their hand! There were still many photo opportunities though as their guests were able to enjoy the event even more through the hired photo booth. Personally, I think this is a great idea! Not allowing smartphones stops people from becoming distracted or antisocial on your special day. What’s more, it stops people from sharing photos of your wedding on Instagram or Facebook before you’re ready to show them off! Unfortunately, no photos have surfaced of the wedding but here are some from Aniston’s 50th Birthday celebration!

Harry Styles

Always on-trend, Harry Styles had a photo booth at his 21st birthday party and it looks like a great time was had by all! Kelly Osbourne posted a photo on her Instagram of a black and white photo booth print out. It looks as though Harry opted for a traditional strip-style photo booth for his bash. This seems to be a really popular choice with celebrities as well as the general public.

Ellen DeGeneres

To celebrate her 60th birthday, Ellen DeGeneres hosted a star-studded bash for her close family and friends and hired a photo booth to mark the occasion. There were many celebrity guests who made the most of the photo booth, many of whom were naturals and enjoyed being in the spotlight. Attendees included Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Jennifer Aniston, and Meghan Trainor. Imagine being in a photo booth with all of these people!

Kylie Jenner

To celebrate her 21st birthday, Kylie Jenner hosted a huge party and booked in a photo booth. Like many celebrities we’ve mentioned, Kylie chose a traditional black and white photo booth and the photos look like they had an amazing time! Pretty much all of the Kardashians and Jenners attended the party. It looks like it was a really fun event!
