CinemaCake Has Brought the Slow-Motion Video Booth for Weddings to Philly

After stumbling upon a film from a slow-motion video booth last summer when they were first arriving on the wedding scene, obviously falling in love and declaring it the next new wedding trend, we were so excited in the fall when we saw that CinemaCake filmmakers had brought this awesome new toy to Philly! (Here are many of Philly’s fine wedding vendors, goofing off in fabulous slo-mo at the NACE conference back then.)

Now, local brides and grooms can treat their guests to an interactive experience that goes way beyond the still frames of your typical photo booth. Behold:

Vanessa and Ken’s Slow Mo Cinema Booth from CinemaCake Filmmakers on Vimeo.

The Slow Mo Cinema Booth encourages guests to step in for a few minutes (either alone or with some buds), engage in silly performances, whether it be tossing a drink in the air, throwing confetti, or blowing up a balloon until it pops. All of the action is caught on camera and played back, in slow-motion, on the booth’s built-in monitor.

So what about those fun photo strips that guests can take away after the affair? CinemaCake offers those, too, if you’d like to give them to your guests as a favor. Just ask for the add-on and each person will receive photos from their performance and a URL address where they can watch the film once it goes live.

The standard booth starts at $4,000, (which includes a three-person crew, lots of fun props, and set up and tear down time) for three hours of service, though everything can be customized to fit larger or longer parties.

So what do you think? Are you in?

We’ve got the scoop on what we can safely say is currently our fave gift for brides to bestow upon their ‘maids.

Bridesmaids are, after all, the good sports who fearlessly stand by your side from the engagement to the altar, and whose encouraging smiles never seem to fade despite every Bridezilla moment that leaves them shaking in their heels. Oftentimes, they’re nothing short of superheroes—so when it’s all said and done, it’s always a kind gesture to gift them a little token to show how much they mean to you.

What a Business-Owner Bride Should Know Before Tying the Knot

What a Business-Owner Bride Should Know Before Tying the Knot


Here at PW, we’re always eager to pick the brains of our wedding experts for wise words and useful tips that will aid our brides throughout the planning process. Whether it’s the good, the bad or the ugly, we want you to be ready for every “what-if” so that your “I Do’s” go off without a hitch.

Today’s lesson comes from Philadelphia attorney Randi Rubin who has offered up her sage advice for brides-to-be who also own their own business. Whether your business is a solo venture (run your own PR shop?) or you’ve got a partner (own a fabulous boutique with your best friend since grade school?), adding a groom into the mix can oftentimes be tricky (cue the not-so-romantic discussion about finances and the future). And while we don’t want to rain on anyone’s Big Day parade, it’s important for both you and your business to be prepared for any situation that can arise once you’ve got that ring on your finger.

Hey Philly brides, we’ve just gotten word of a super special offer that can pretty much guarantee your bod will be in tip-top shape for that walk down the aisle.

Pure Barre—a fitness craze that combines ballet, yoga and pilates—has received rave reviews for its ability to sculpt long, lean muscles fast. (Students say that they actually see results in just 10 classes.) The effective routine targets your abs, thighs, arms and bum with small isometric movements that fatigue your muscles and and stretch them to toned perfection. With personalized attention and a few tunes to keep you motivated, the Pure Barre workout is a great way to slim down and look fabulous on your Big Day.

Here’s where it gets exciting: Pure Barre now has a package for brides-to-be that gives you all of the benefits of the specialized workout at a discounted rate. The bridal bundle consists of three months of unlimited classes for $375, as opposed to the regular $600 price tag. To receive this offer, you’ve just got to show some photographic evidence of your betrothal—a pic of you and your guy, of the bling, or hey, if you have it, of the actual moment it happened!—and you’re on your way to being wedding dress ready!

Pure Barre has two local locations, one at 17th and Walnut, and the other in Eagle Village Shops in Wayne
