Slow Motion Photobooth + Farm Fare Are Fall Wedding Must-Haves


Slow Jams: Slow Motion Photobooth + Foodie Fare Are Fall Wedding Must-Have

fall in love with autumn’s hottest wedding trends.

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in The Great Gatsby. For those cozy, romantic autumn weddings this year, it’s back to basics like Fitzgerald penned, but with contemporary new twists that will make you appreciate falling leaves and autumnal palettes after sitting through so many summer unions.  Two of the most basic wedding reception necessities, the fun photo booth and a delicious dinner, are getting made over and upgraded for the fall 2013 season.

For their ultra cool reception, the viral celeb newlyweds Quang and Ellie had a slick new kind of photo booth installed that captured slow-motion videos. Cinephiles, photography hobbyists, and tech geeks alike will all love the crisp high-def action the slow-mo captures, but more importantly the newly devoted duo will definitely love back in love on their fresh approach.  “Photo-booth sessions are a hot commodity for weddings, but this slow-mo version might have prolonged the trend,” Mashable predicted.”Thanks to video-production company Super Frog Saves Tokyo (Super-Frog Saves Tokyo is also a story by Haruki Murakami) and RED Epic Camera, the video shows the couple and their wedding guests getting their kiss, dance and smile on in the booth — all in spectacular slow-mo.” To learn more about the slow motion booth, email Super Frog Saves Tokyo at

Foodies will also rejoice at the autumn wedding season’s offerings, as reception food is expected to see welcome shift away from trays of dry rigatoni and plates of beef filets for fall 2013. Amy Shey Jacobs, founder of Chandelier Events, told HuffPost Weddings that she’s seeing a lot more “farm-to-fork” foods from local farms, family-style meals where everyone shares from a platter, and small plates instead of a standard sit-down meal.

“Sometimes instead of doing a traditional three-course meal, we’re seeing five, six, seven courses or ‘roaming’ meals [where guests can walk around and graze],” she said.

Jacobs assures that comfort foods will still remain a wedding staple though, only with modern updates that keep the dishes on trend. She says she’s seeing indulgences like cronuts, donuts with dipping sauces, mac and cheese, sliders, and other one-bite foods, such as mini pretzel buns, on fall wedding menus.

Whether you’re a guest, member of the wedding party, or bride-to-be, what are you most looking forward to for the upcoming/current wedding season? Casandra Armour
