"Oh, crap/dangit/fudge/other stronger expletive that I'm too chicken to use on Weddingbee, that event insurance I thought cost $50 is actually $350."
"We need to rent a golf cart so our guests can use the bathroom? And that costs how much?"
"After adding up the cost of decorating my OOT bags, I realize that it was officially double what I budgeted."
So you can truly understand my delight when I received an email from our bananas-cool photog (Kelly Griffin of Closed Circle Photography) in response to my inquiry about hiring a second shooter for the day. In the email, she said that if we decide to book the second shooter, she would include all the trimmings for a photobooth setup, include a backdrop, lights and a manned camera station!!
Excuse me while I do a little spastic happy dance...
A photobooth was one of those things I really wanted to have at our wedding but crossed it off the list way back when due to budget constraints. I know many creative Bee's have gone the Fauxto-booth route but I am not techno-savvy enough to pull that off, nor did I have any of the equipment necessart.
But now the wedding gods are clearly smiling upon me by dropping this delightful surprise into my lap on a day where I was starting to despair that the wedding might actually be the cause of my untimely death due to my brain imploding. But no, I have been pulled back from the deep abyss by the promise of funny, awesome photos like these:
Can I just get a hoo-rah for a photobooth?!?!? I'm so excited, I was literally smiling about this for the rest of the day. Is that sad? On second thought, don't answer that question. Anyways, I have officially jumped on the photo booth train and I am pumped!
Did you have any pleasant planning surprises?
