Weddings are a commitment, a celebration, and the beginning of a new journey. When Jessica and Nels decided to tie the knot, they wanted a night to remember. Beyond the traditional dinner and dancing, they wanted playful fun and entertainment that guests would never forget. That’s why they rented a photo booth for their intimate Paikka reception.
The venue, located in the heart of the Twin Cities, offers an industrial-chic event space with exposed brick walls and steel vaulted ceilings. With a maximum of 200 guests for a seated dinner reception, the space is ample enough to accommodate both intimate events and larger-scale affairs. Paikka weddings allow flexibility when selecting caterers, with no limited list of potentially pricey “preferred vendors” to choose from. The licensed, insured caterer of your choice is welcome to set up in the kitchen space.
And the venue is committed to making your event your own: they’ll create a custom floor plan from the available spaces to help you realize your vision for the day. The Gold and Pink rooms are separated by large doors adorned with a striking mural. Outside, a small patio strung with lights allows your guests to catch a breath of fresh air.
The Photo Booth
For Jessica and Nels, a photo booth rental was the right choice. Photo booth stations offer a chance for guests to co-mingle, group up, and let their silly sides loose with props and accessories. For this wedding, the couple chose our open-style photo booth to allow for a custom backdrop. Instead of a red curtain or a painted backdrop, we let the venue’s flowers and greenery show through in every printout. The couple and their guests won’t forget those custom decorations!
As the evening progressed, every guest got their moment behind the camera. They formed and re-formed groups of three or four and swapped props like Viking helmets, giant sunglasses, and sequined top hats. Whether holding signs that said “Hurry, cut the cake!” or “Wedding crasher,” it’s clear they’re having a blast in every photo. But not every guest had to sacrifice their dignity: some couples took the opportunity to pose in their formal wear for a more romantic keepsake. Others did a little of both– one formal, one goofy– for the best of both worlds.
To make their photo booth rental even more memorable, Jessica and Nels had each printout customized with their initials and the date. Every photo doubled as a special souvenir of a very special night.
