For our wedding last April, my parents had the task of constructing a Photo Booth Wall. I think they hated doing it as there were no instructions - just an idea. But the end result was very much worth it. The idea was to make a free standing wall that could be positioned near the entrance of the reception where guests could stop to have their photo taken. The wall would have 2 cut outs, framed, to give the illusion that the person standing in the cut out was a picture on the wall. The wall would be enhanced with family photos, especially those of past weddings.

The Photo Booth wall served several purposes:
# 1 It was a chance to capture all of our guests in a photograph

# 2 It provided a bit of entertainment to guests considering they are not camera shy

# 3 Most importantly - It paid homage to our family members that could not be with us on that day since we used it to display photographs of our grandparents weddings and other vintage family photos.

This idea would have never come to life with out some (a lot of) help from family & friends. Thanks Dad for figuring out how make this. Thanks Blake Huval, master builder for the finishing touches. Thanks Mom for getting all of the pictures on the wall. Thanks Jessica Stelly for the props and Thanks to my cousins at Frugé's Lumber in Eunice for the decorative wood.
