Key to Alabama's wedding success: mountains, beaches, photo booths
Alabamans have a secret. Many outsiders are unaware of its beauty, from mountains to beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. This makes for captivating weddings and lots of them. It’s one of the top 10 places for marriages in the country. Residents and visitors alike come here for their nuptials to soak up the ambiance and Southern charm — from Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation in Gurley to Jasmine Hill Gardens in Wetumpka. But in Alabama, people pride themselves on making their weddings personal statements, symbol and celebration of a deeper commitment. From mansions to farms, yacht clubs to back yards, people consider how to make their weddings meaningful more than how to make them trend on Twitter.
So while trends in weddings may be running toward industrial, rustic still has a place in Alabama. Farms remain a favorite venue. Metallics sparkle as the popular colors this year, but Alabamans were ahead of this trend. Gray, silver, gunmetal have been accenting weddings here for a couple of years. And as greenery trends nationally, some Alabamans are ditching floral-shops’ worth of flowers for the simplicity of plants and trees.
But there is one thing no savvy bride or planner will ditch — the photo booth. It’s more than a trend in entertainment. It is becoming as necessary as the wedding ring, as much a mainstay as the first dance tradition. The photo booth is a must-have! And those getting married in Alabama are making sure photo booths are a part of all the wedding events. It’s important to choose a good photo booth that will capture memories for the wedding guests and for the bride and groom, who can review later and have it forever. Pick a high-tech system that boasts connections to social media, the ability to text, and will provide an album of the photos taken for the newlyweds. Selfie Station offers all the bells and whistles.
Selfie Station is more than a good photo booth; it’s a cutting-edge photo entertainment system with a spectacular 32-inch screen, DSLR camera and HD web cam. Guests enjoy using the slo-mo and personal video options as well as a slew of photo filters. It sparks guest activity and involvement. Photo booths make down times active. Those long minutes waiting for the bride and groom to arrive suddenly breeze by as guests mug for the camera. Even great-aunt Mable is picking up props and haltingly making her way over to the photo booth. It creates fun as well as wedding favors; the pictures can be printed out in customized frames. Instant wedding favor.
Another beautiful thing about the Selfie Station is that it’s beautiful. It is freestanding, sleek and compact. It fits in at any wedding, from casual to elegant. A Selfie Station photo booth owner will set it up and stay in attendance to help guests use all the features. Hashtag your wedding and send out those filter-full photos on Instagram and Facebook.
No matter what type of entertainment you have, don’t forgo the photo booth. Put it on your list or tell your wedding planner to make sure it’s booked. As more people discover the advantages of photo booths at their events, some areas struggle to fill all the wedding engagements. Call and book a Selfie Station early.
