Creating your own Photo Booth

| , , , | Leave a Comment

Having a photo booth is a great way to get some fun and goofy pictures at your reception in addition to the essential kissing in the sunset pictures that your photographer will inevitably be taking. However, renting a photo booth can be a pricey addition to the overall cost of your event. But, have no fear, creating your own photo booth is a low stress project that you can have fun with while sipping on your favorite Chardonnay. Here are some of our favorite ideas to create your own photo booth:

  • Over sized sunglasses, feather boas, and fake mustaches are just a few of the goofy props your guests can pose with at your DIY photo booth. Hit the dollar store, thrift store, or the back of your closet and see what you can find. Your
    guests will thank you for the hilarious photos later!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
