This booking was by far the easiest of all the bookings I’ve done over the past several years. How easy was it? It was a total breeze. Thomas and Catherine had found us through a Google search of photo booth companies in Pleasanton. I received an inquiry from them in April at 2:05pm. I wrote a quote and by 4pm, they had accepted my quote. In my years in the business, I’ve never see it move that fast. Within the next two days, we had a contract in place and we were off to planning for their wedding day.
When I asked them if they had a particular theme or color for their wedding, here’s how they replied:
Modern geek is our theme, our color scheme is regal purple, rose gold, blush, and grey. We love art, science, video games, among many other things. Our table numbers are Game of Thrones house signs.
So on this beautiful Thursday evening in Pleasanton California, Catherine and Thomas exchanged their vows in front of their friends and family at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. I found it incredibly fitting that they got married at this place, surrounded by lush green vineyards, mature and full grown olive trees since the name Casa Real translates to “The House of Royalty” harking back to their theme that included Game of Thrones.
Oh and by the way, when they said they were fans, they really mean it! As we were setting up and getting ready to open the booth, one of the wait staff at Casa real came over and brought over an Infinity Gauntlet and Mjölnir! I’ve never actually seen these in real life so needless to say, I was extremely excited like a kid at a candy store! This is definitely legit folks and it has Hasbro written all over it complete with light up stones and sounds! Uhh-May-Zing!!! Check out the photo below and tell me you aren’t impressed? Wow!
The evening was also a celebration of Catherine’s parents’ 40th wedding anniversary with Catherine saying a few words. By the time she was done, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. It was a very touching and awe inspiring greeting she gave to her parents. The rest of the evening was as incredible and the booth was definitely rocking throughout the night. Finally, we also loved the late night snack of churros and horchata!
Check out the sample photos below. Y’all can see how crazy and fun it was at the booth tonight. Check it out! Even Thomas’ grandmother put on the viking hat and had a crazy fun time. As she walked out the door tonight, she put her hand on my arm and said, “I had a lot of fun. You definitely love what you do”.

And before the evening ended, Catherine and Thomas even had their photos taken with their videographers and Nikki and myself! How awesome is that? We hope you enjoyed these samples images. But before we go, here’s a parting gift from us to the newly weds and their friends and family.Please enjoy.
Oh and here’s the churro gang! Can you tell they had a blast coordinating these shots?
