The BIG difference in photo booths.

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | May 31, 2018

The BIG difference in photo booths. So many photo booths print small, dark pictures in tiny strips. Yuck. It’s enough to make you want to cough up a hair ball. Fizzy Cat Photo Booth only prints big and beautiful 4×6 photos that your guests will cherish and keep. See the difference for yourself.

Below is an example of a typical photo booth strip with dark tiny pictures.

Amelita Mirolo Barn wedding:  Angela + Chaz!

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | May 7, 2018

Right from the first meeting, we felt a wonderful connection with these two.

They were clearly in love, and so much fun, and so perfectly matched … we couldn’t wait to help them celebrate their Amelita Mirolo Barn wedding in Upper Arlington.

Angela and Chaz wanted a celebration of friends and family that felt like a party, with an end goal of everyone having THE BEST time. Mother nature clearly approved, because the weather was perfect from start to finish! Such a fantastic day.

BONUS: Angela + Chaz are also incredibly talented photographers, who are blowing people away with their gorgeous wedding photography, warm personalities, and sense of style and moment. The sweet story of how they named their company Photo 243 is shared on their website.  Click their logo below and check it out!

A few details of the day:

♦  A relative played guitar for their ceremony, while the guests passed the wedding rings from person to person as a way to wish love to the bride and groom before they put them on.  So sweet.

♦  Yard games were set up outside for guests to enjoy while socializing, and this was a big hit.

♦  After dinner, and while a few tables were being moved for the dance party,  we had some fun with Angela + Chaz with a short version of The Shoelywed Game!  The guests LOVED this.
