J2 Construction Holiday Party – Zota Beach Resort, Longboat Key, FL

We originally met the J2 crew over the summer when they hired us to photograph their company picnic at Sharkey’s. We had such a wonderful time and we just love what these guys do. Not you average construction company. We met up with J2 Solutions again this year for their annual holiday party at Zota Beach Resort. They paired our event photography with one of our glamorous open air photo booths to make sure no moments were missed. What a stunning resort to hold your event at. Located on Longboat Key, the high ceiling ballroom was so elegant I cant believe this is the first time we worked this Venue, but certainly not the last! The drinks were flowing & the dance floor was bumping thanks to an amazing DJ. We met Luke of Stultz Entertainment Group and are stoked at the possibility of joining forces to make a powerhouse entertainment rental team. Stay Tuned for more on that in the near future…

Both have amazing food, wine & staff with top notch views of the beauty that is Englewood.

Ryan and Ashley's Wedding – Venice Gardens Civic Association

We were instantly excited for this wedding reception because we just love the Venice Gardens Civic Association. Not just because it a short bike ride from the house but because it is one of our favorite parks in town. We often spend our Saturday and Sunday mornings riding our bikes with our two little boys and our dog, Tybee, to the park for some playground action. Always a great way to start our day.

This visit was all about business though as we were back for another great event. This time we were delighted to help Ryan and Ashley celebrate their wedding day. What a fun night it was. The DJ was fantastic, the fireball was flowing and everyone was ready to get down. Ashley requested our LED Inflatable Booth and was not dissapointed. The booth was rocking the night away and everyone was having a blast right up until the last song of the night. Big thanks to everyone that made this night so special! I had so much fun with this crew.

Englewood Waterfest 2019

Back at Englewood Waterfest for the second straight year! What a great event, there is just nothing else like it. These boats and their crews are just amazing and the races are intense. We were set up in the Conservation Tent with Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium and Friends of Stump Pass and had a wonderful time meeting all our local conservationists and festival goers. We had our LED Inflatable Booth all set up and rocking for the weekend. This event comes and goes way too fast, already looking forward to next year!

Elements Massage Holiday Open House

I was so excited to get the call from Cheryl about this years Open House Holiday Party! I had so much fun helping Elements Massage take their Holidays to the next level. It’s open to all the clients, but let’s be honest, it’s the staff that steals the show here! No room filled with pizza on a giant hotplate this year but the snacks were on point! I had so many cookies, I wish I could remember the name of the cookie shop they came from because they deserve the credit. Maybe I’ll find out and link them here in an update.

They choose our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Booth and silver shimmery background. Great choice! They beauty of this set up is that I can make it big or really small when we have a tight area to work in, which just happened to be the case here. I also made sure to switch up the prop selection from last year to give some fresh options. Also, there was a slight issue with a certain somebody getting the handcuffs stuck on for about 20 minutes last year, so I left those home this year, lol.

Good times with a great staff. Thanks Cheryl, I’m already looking forward to next year!
