We had the pleasure of working with fun wedding photographers from Rojo Foto Design along with Stephanie Fields from Great Events, Inc. out of Northbrook, IL for this old-time Gatsby-esque wedding extravaganza! The wedding and reception both took place in the Crystal Ballroom at the Millennium Knickerbocker in downtown Chicago. Amazingly, the event staff quickly flipped the room during the cocktail hour for these two epic setups! The Crystal Ballroom is amazing with the intricate crown molding and light up dance floor. Needless to say our vintage looking photo booth looked like it was meant to exist in the space. Below are a few pictures from the wedding! View all of the event pictures at fotio.co/12-7-13
Seeing as we are avid Stanley Kubrick fans we were delighted when hired by Kapow Events to bring our vintage themed Chicago photo booth to an "Eyes Wide Shut" meets secret society themed masquerade party. The event was hosted at Venue One in the West Loop but it was a far cry from your typical corporate holiday work party. Obviously it was a bit more tame than Kubrick's psycho-sexual crazed film but it was not any less entertaining! The walls at Venue One were colored Oxblood red (apparently that color is hot right now!) and they had low rumbling bass music playing throughout the venue which was creepy awesome. Did we mention guests were greeted by non-speaking masked individuals with nose horns? The many flat-screen monitors on the wall played a slideshow of cryptic phrases such as "Drinketh From the Horn of the Horse," "Mask your Identity," and "Leave in Silence." As the party went on there was a great live band called "The Deliverables" who played fully masked. Everyone loved taking crazy photo booth pictures with the wild masks and a few unicorns even paid a visit!
Chicago Urban Art Society is an event / wedding venue located in Pilsen at 600 West Cermak Road. It has a very cool lofty feel while still feeling homey. Chicago wedding planners Carolyn and Amy from An Event Less Ordinary did an amazing job dressing this place up and really creating a sweet mood for the party! We went for some mad hatter meets vintage photo booth props which worked out amazingly.
