We’re pretty sure brides and grooms these days are prioritizing photo booths for their wedding–it’s a way to give guests a tangible memory of your big day, and the major bonus is that you get to see all the photos that are shot in the booth! Well, if you happen to fall in the aforementioned category (and how could you not?) then we would love to introduce you to Magbooth.
Not only does Magbooth offer the chance to have a super high quality photo booth wherever you want with crazy good customer service, but their rentals also include props, unlimited photo prints, a custom designed logo strip, an online gallery, AND photo booth attendant. PLUS, and this is a major bonus–wedding rentals include a custom photo book of all your booth images combined into one! Say whaaa?? And if that wasn’t enough, they also offer a gif booth:
You can find out more about Magbooth rentals here, but for now, here are some super fun videos that give you a better ideas as to what Magbooth does…and why they are so awesome!
As couples become more and more aware of the impact their choices have on a global scale, we’ve begun to see a trend toward hand selecting jewelry designers based on their ethical standards for harvesting and manufacturing. Today, we wanted to highlight three designers that we think are answering that call in a profound way–each with a unique approach to making a difference in their industry.
First up, is Uneek, who produces incredibly…you guessed it…unique rings. But in addition to that, each piece is produced in the United States at a warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles, which bolsters the locally economy by producing jobs and generating tax revenue. By manufacturing rings locally Uneek chooses to invest in a sustainable future for the local economy rather than outsourcing their labor to a developing country in order to cut production cost. We love this just about as much as we love their rings and especially the new Silhouette Collection, with gorgeous curvy designs.
Natalie K is a jewelry designer focused on the global impact of harvesting their diamonds. The Natalie K’s Forevermark Collection carries a promise that each diamond has been harvested in a responsible and sustainable fashion from the earth and the proceeds from the sale of the diamonds end up helping the community where the diamond mine is located and not funding any para-military rebel groups.
Danhov is an award winning designer of handmade engagement rings with a focus on the nature of their production process. Each piece is assembled completely by hand while avoiding many of the harsh chemicals and large machinery commonly employed in jewelry manufacturing today. This eco-friendly approach to sustainable jewelry manufacturing is becoming an increasingly popular trend as many potential engagement ring buyers are gaining an increased awareness of their own ecological impact. You can read more about Danhov’s story here and check out some of our favorites from their collection below.
We are very pleased to introduce to you one of the newest members of our Grey Collective, DarkerShadesofBrown Photography. Their work, which has it roots in street photography in NYC, is reflective of their photojournalistic style with an emphasis on connecting with clients.
DarkerShadesofBrown Photography believes good photography comes from having a good relationship with their clients. “Our job,” says principal photographer Daniel Lanton, “is to create an environment where people can just be themselves so that the photographs happen naturally.” Yes! We couldn’t agree more!
Orchard Keepers is a new venue that opened it’s farmhouse doors late last year and was spotted by The Venue Report who finds new and unique celebration locations for weddings, elopements, dinner parties, group getaways and more. The clean countryside backdrop includes an ambiance composed of elements like the thriving garden, farm fresh eggs, trees and vineyards (and with 102 wineries in the area, there is no shortage of vino!). You can host up to 55 guests for an event, and sleep up to ten guests across the property, with buildings dating back to the late 1890′s, which all have been lovingly restored to provide “rustic luxury” accommodations with impeccable decor including a vintage French dining table, with chalk white walls, lime wash floors, organic French linen, feather pillows, and treasured objects. Located a mere 50 minutes away from Melbourne in the Australian countryside, Orchard Keepers is the perfect mix of antiques and layer upon layer of fresh white paint. Are you ready to see the full rundown of this gorgeous new venue???
