Home Newsroom 87. Three Unique Ways to Make Your Event Memorable

When it comes to hosting celebrations that make a lasting impression, Barrington event planner, Christina Currie, has more than a few secrets up her sleeve. From weddings to graduation parties to gatherings that celebrate a special person or milestone, Christina says these days her clients are all about unique touches.”People are looking to add their own name to their events so it’s not copied from Pinterest, Facebook or the latest wedding magazine.” And Christina says a little “wow” goes a long way when you can captivate guests while turning your event into an actual work of art.

Here are three of the many vendors Christina’s clients can’t get enough of and how they’re helping commemorate our life’s celebrations…

1. Fun with Fotio

“At our 4th annual Grace Meets Glamour Bridal show guests really enjoyed Fotio, a new concept for photo booths at your wedding or events. It looks like a vintage camera and it’s a photo booth, without the booth! Guests take their own pictures which they view on the screen and then take a ticket to view the pictures later online. You can have custom props on-hand based on your party’s theme and it’s a really fun new way to capture the personality of your event.”

2. An Illustrator’s Eye

“We do a lot of work with a live wedding and event illustrator who captures an affair in such a different way than a photographer does. She’s an artist named Rosemary Fanti who illustrates the fashions of the bride, groom, wedding party or guests of honor during the event. She will also capture your guests on paper and present them with their custom illustration for a truly unique way to make your event unforgettable.”

3. An Original Oil Painting

“Party Scapes is an artistic painter who captures all elements of your event with oil paint on canvas as the celebration unfolds. Instead of having just photographs from your wedding or event, you’ll have your own work of art suitable for framing so it’s like having something from a museum hanging in your home. He’s there for less than three hours, yet the artwork will preserve the memory of your magical night forever.”
