On the 19th of June, Matt and Savannah tied the knot at Bridal Veil Lakes in Corbett, Oregon. Picstop PDX was lucky enough to be part of the celebration. There was good food, dancing, marriage, more good food, more dancing, and a phenomenally sweet photo booth (we're biased). However, probably the coolest part of the night was returning to the scene where the dream of owning a photo booth rental company began.
Bridal Veil Lakes holds a dear place in our hearts. Truth be told we attempted to get married there. However, through a series of unfortunate events, we ended up getting married elsewhere. Something tells me it was a good thing - we were scheduled to be married there on October 20th...and it's an outdoor venue...in Oregon...yikes.
Yet, even more special than our failed attempt at getting married there, Bridal Veil is significant to us because it was there that Kate decided we would begin our own photo booth company.
In the summer of 2013, one of Kate's best friends married a rad dude. The venue? Bridal Veil Lakes. This wedding had everything you'd have wanted: canoes, good food, dancing, Salt & Straw, an absurd view, warmth...and a killer photo booth. I don't know for certain, but I'd say Kate made her way to that photo booth some-3,000 times throughout the night. She couldn't stop. She loved everything about the photo booth.
A few weeks later Kate approached me (Alex) with a thought - she wanted us to start our own photo booth company, from the ground up. Now, if you don't know me, I'm not the entrepreneurial, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of person. I'm a planner, not a risk-taker, and it took Kate quite a bit of convincing for me to buy into the dream. But I did, and 2 years later we have Picstop PDX, our very own photo booth company.
So while June 19th, 2015 will always be the specialist of days for Matt and Savannah, it turned out to be a pretty special day for Picstop PDX as well, as we were able to work a photo booth event at the very place where the dream was birthed.
