Love Under the Moon: The Magnet Man

You may or may not have noticed the giant green screen in the background of some of our photos:

This was yet another last-minute decision that I did not get a chance to blog about before the wedding (good thing for recaps, eh?!). Mr. Coyote and I went back and forth and back and forth on whether or not we should have a photo booth at our wedding. Yes, we had been to weddings that had them, and yes, it was always a blast, but was it really worth the extra money? In the end, Mr. Coyote convinced me that we absolutely had to have one. Honestly, when your groom gets this passionate about something you just gotta let him do it.


Blurry, but hilarious guest photo

If you are on the fence about having a photo booth, I am here to tell you that Mr. Coyote is right and you absolutely have to have one! We could not believe how popular it was. In fact, people were lining up to get their photos taken before dinner was even served. It was unbelievable.

We ended up hiring The Magnet Man. They offer a little bit of a spin off of your traditional photo booth and provide each guest with a multitude of background choices and a magnet of their photo:

Our fridge is now covered with them and every time we visit our friends or family we love seeing the magnets on their fridge too! As a part of the package we booked we also received every photo on a disc so we could enjoy them over and over again (and so I could share them with you, of course!). Mr. Coyote and I spent a good hour howling (cuz, y’know, we’re coyotes) over these photos, so we hope you enjoy them too!

Why yes, that is my father with Mr. Coyote’s father in that bottom photo. What a bunch of troublemakers!


I am 98% sure that my great-uncle did not know what background he was posing for. And I am 99% sure that a few of my crazy cousins wheeled him over and just told him to smile. I can’t help cracking up every time I see my great-uncle posing next to a freakin’ Playboy Bunny!


Oh, and just so you don’t think we’re complete heathens, we did take some nice ones too!


That didn’t last long, though:


Once again, that is my father in the upper left corner wearing a hot pink wig and chillin’ with some Chippendale dudes. (I don’t even want to know.)

I was amazed by how many people (young and old!) took advantage of the photo booth and am honestly appalled by my father’s behavior on this, the day of his daughter’s wedding (just kidding, Dad—thanks for all the great material, though!).

Are you planning on having a photo booth for your wedding?


Miss a recap?
