Our Wedding Photobooth and Props

Today I'm showing some pictures from our photobooth at the wedding (as I anxiously await our professional wedding pics)!  For the first month I didn't even feel like I was waiting for anything, but starting a couple weeks ago I've probably check her facebook page and website at least twice a day now to see if there are any of our pictures there yet.  At least I know they will be edited well when I finally get to see them.

Anyway, to help tide me over, I wanted to show the photobooth side of our wedding!  We asked the two ladies in the photo below to take pictures using their digital cameras - and we're so thankful that they didn't mind doing that for free.  
Our sweet house ladies!
All you need is love - thanks for making that sign, Veronica!

Our backdrop for the photobooth also doubled as our ceremony backdrop.  It was made with two rustic doors that I found at a yard sale, a panel of fabric in the middle, and three peices of two-by-fours cut in certain lengths in the middle to make the doors stand up.  They also used other peices of the two-by-fours to sturdy the sides.  
Such 'Darling' Friends
The manly men: hats, coffee, pipes, "bat-ears", and mustaches.

Sweet friends, cat ears, bows, hearts, and fun!

The intellectuals!

Pipes and lovers!

Love:  Family and Coffee!

I am currently selling many of our props on my Etsy shop, LoveCoffeeDarling.  If you'd rather buy than create, or if you just like the particular style, please check out my shop!  If you are looking for something different, write me a message for a custom order.
Below are some close ups of my photobooth props, I made almost all of them myself - with the exception of a few that are from one of our house ladies weddings before us.  You can also check out her Photobooth DIY.   All are hand drawn, stiffened with foam board, and most are reversible - meaning the dowel rod isn't just glued to the back, but I cut into the foam in the middle on one side - leaving the paper backing of the foam board still in tact.  I then glued the dowel in to the hole that I created.  I designed each piece on card stock and used spray glue to attach them to the foam board.

Here was the most popular example of one of our double sided props.

We also took these with us on our honeymoon and took some fun pictures with them - especially since we were so busy at the wedding we never took any pictures at the photobooth together.

The starbucks props were also quite popular with the coffee crowd.
