Cassondra and Reece had set up a space for a DIY PhotoBooth in the yard behind the reception hall. He had a nice little Nikon with a remote control… it was going to be on a tripod in front of a beachy backdrop. There were silly props galore! Considering that the crowd was full of extroverts, the stage was set!.
After the ceremony on the beach, the guests came in waves as the shuttle dropped them off. Pretty much everyone made a beeline for the beer taps on the back deck. Reece had made several different types of beer… he must be pretty darn good at it… there were lots of smiles and no complaints.
Besides the PhotoBooth and the beer, DIY ruled the day from the decorations to the food… maybe the only things not made or brought by a participant were the plates and glasses. It gave the whole day a very personal feel and that is always a win.
So, this silly picture made me happy. I was waiting for their camera to be set up and these crazy-wonderful bridesmaids started to goof around in front of the backdrop. I got to catch this instead of leaving it to the luck of the remote.
Weddings are a lot of fun if the ingredients are right!
