Flashworks Photobooth would like to congratulate Terri and Matthew on their wedding day! We thoroughly enjoyed entertaining your lively friends and family throughout the evening and into the wee hours of the morning.
The banquet room at the Lou Soppit Community Centre in Rocky Mountain House was beautiful decorated for this special occasion. Purple, orange and red LED lit paper lanterns hung from the ceiling, and halfway up each wall white icicle-like lights added to the ambiance of the room. Round tables with black tablecloths featured a vase of red, orange and purple flowers on a shiny and large round dish. Each table was also provided with a “Reception Schedule” mounted onto each side of a tall sheet of coloured paper folded into a triangle. The head table, raised up on a platform, was accented with drapery of white tulle containing purple mini lights while black fabric framed a tall background of flowing translucent white material behind.
Outside the banquet hall and in the reception area was a guestbook table with a black tablecloth and purple guestbook. Upon this table stood two multi-photo picture frames, one of images from the young couple’s youth, the other with more recent photos of them together. A cute flower arrangement with colorful gerber daisies, sunflowers and asters also figured prominently.
As the cocktail hour drew to a close, the wedding party arrived and partook in a quick photobooth session and a celebratory drink. The bridesmaids, dressed in purple wore black fur shrugs which complimented the groomsmen’s black ties while Terri’s white fur shrug matched with Matthew’s white tie and vest. The entire bridal party entered the hall full of applauding guests with Motley Crue’s “Kickstart my Heart” playing in the background.
Terri’s brother, Nathan, was an accomplished Master of Ceremonies and kept the crowd amused with jokes, funny stories and hilarious impressions. He implemented Terri and Matthew’s unique system for choosing which tables were able to go up for dinner. Each table had half a playing card while the other half resided in the MC’s hat awaiting to be picked by Matthew. Nathan even auctioned off additional card halves to those tables that wanted to increase their chances of being called to eat sooner. In addition to administering the dinner system, Nathan also watched over the putting game which guests had to master on order to get the bride and groom to kiss.
The speeches were touching and heart-felt, relating a number of personal stories about the bride and groom. They were followed by a high-energy slideshow set to popular 80s rock songs. Then, Terri’s aunt had all the guests surround the bride and groom in a circle while she sang the traditional Ukrainian song, “Mnohaya lita” wishing the newlyweds many joyful and prosperous years together.
From this point the dance commenced and the party really kicked off. A number of dances after Terri and Matthew demonstrated the chicken dance, a conga-line to Kylie Minogue’s “Loco-motion” wound its way around the hall and reception area followed by a hula hoop challenge. Up until 2:30 in the morning, the DJ from the On the Mark Productions kept people on the dance floor with a wide assortment of music across all the genres.
Needless to say, the Flashworks Photobooth was a hit with all ages and guests kept coming back for more. We can’t remember the last time we stayed out so late!
Terri and Matthew, thanks for making us a part of your special day. You two make a beautiful couple and we wish you all the very best as you continue your journey together as husband and wife.
