2016 Kalamazoo Mi, Breakfast on the Farm at North Bridge Church

North Bridge Church located in Cooper Michigan just minutes from Kalamazoo opened it’s doors and property to the local community Sunday Hosting it’s annual “Breakfast on the farm”. Church Volunteers had the opportunity to show the love we can all experience when we love others as Christ Loves us.  The Young and young at heart enjoyed the fun summer celebration. As members of this wonderful church family, we were thrilled to provide the keepsake photos and make some happy memories. Enjoy

Department Fair Purdue University

Sponsored by the honors college we were excited to come to Purdue’s campus for their department fair. It’s always fun to have somebody sponsor us because we are able to provide so much fun for the guests while also providing a marketing opportunity for the sponsor. Each time anyone that attended the event got their picture taken everyone in the photo was given a copy to take home as a souvenir. Before we print the  pictures out we have the ability to add a logo, put on a date or whatever else you would like. So whenever the guests look back on their fun memories your logo is there for them to remember as well.

As you can see in the photos below, the honors college at Purdue had us put their logo on every personalized picture.

Fans meet Outlander stars at Season 2 premiere

Outlander fans gathered in Chicago at the AMC theater for a screening party of the season 2 premiere.  As they were ushered into the theater they stopped by Big Lyle’s photo station to get there pictures with the two outlander stars. Using green screen technology, fans were able to pick either the apartment or the garden for their background.  We were able to help Starz and Xfinity brand every picture by putting their logos as well as the title of the show.

Big Lyle’s was excited to provide a newer feature for the fans and the network, an emailing station on site.  With the new station everyone that gets their picture done has the option to send themselves the digital copy. For the sponsor it has a real benefit as they receive all the emails at the end of the event as well as being able to send a personalized message with each email.

Go ahead and walk into the “Outlander world” as you view picture from the event below.

 

We love the 80’s – 2016 Juice Ball

As usual, Tommy Fitzgerald’s annual Juice Ball was a very fun event for everyone involved!  The themes for the event change every year and I must admit this years theme, The 80’s,  might’ve been one of my favorites!

Off the shoulder sweatshirts, Bright leggings, and many more funny fashions flooded the JW Marriott. The Juice Ball isn’t just for fun though, every year it raises money for Tommy’s organization, Kitchen Sage.  Kitchen Sage is a great program that provides all of these below!

• A Culinary Leadership Academy to build life skills for Grand Rapids youths, teaching budgeting, planning, teamwork, accountability, character development, resourcefulness, and leadership in a fun, food-centered atmosphere
• Resources for smart shopping, recipes and meal planning, nutrition, and the tools and techniques of the kitchen
• Opportunities for local businesses to partner and support each other
• Meaningful volunteer and mentoring roles for community members
• Career preparation skills, including ServSafe® Food Handler Certification

Big Lyle’s is always glad to be a part of such a giving organization and loves volunteering at this event to raise money for such a good cause!

Mariners Inn’s River Rhythm Gala at Motor City Casino

Hey guys, this week we wanted to share an event we did at The Soundboard at Motor City Casino in Detroit.  The event was for Mariner’s Inn, a shelter and treatment center for the homeless.  It is such a great organization that helps men and their families that are affected by substance abuse.

This was our second time doing green screen pictures for this wonderful event and we couldn’t have had a more fun time with it.  We did personalized pictures for their Gatsby themed event that was a hit for every guest that did it and got to take a picture home with them. We can’t wait to come back next year to help such an amazing cause, please make sure to visit Mariner’s Inn on their website to learn more about what they do and how you can help!

Here’s a few picture from the green screen:)

 

Big Lyle’s Gives Back – You can too

If there is one thing I have noticed working with Big Lyle’s the last few years is that they love to have fun and they love to give back to the community! As a small business, they really value community and helping others.  So far this year Big Lyle’s has had the privilege of partnering with Volunteer Kalamazoo at their Eat, Drink, Give Event and Relay for life at their event in Findlay.

Both events were tons of fun (as usual) for everyone involved! Make sure to check out the pictures below to see how these two events went and the fun the guests had!

Look no mud

If you remember my post from the spring,  We  provided 5th3rd Bank with a fun green screen photo booth experience at the Pre-ride Expo for the participants  and Fans of the annual  River Bank Run in Grand Rapids MI. We had fun (digitally) placing  the attendees at the starting line, the finish line and odd places on the course,  Well they loved the response from the participants so when they decided to become sponsors of the grueling Ice Man Cometh Mountain bike race up in Traverse City MI They want us to recreate the experience for the Bike riders. I was up for the challenge, We had a lot of laughs and so did the those watching in the exhibition Hall.

How do chiropractors decompress? With a trip to Tuscany.

After days of conference meetings  and classroom discussions the members of Michigan Association of chiropractor were looking for a little relief. What could be more rewarding than stroll through the streets of Tuscany?

Every conference ends with a VIP networking after hour event, shouldn’t it include a little fun and more that a few laughs? This event planner thought so. She had the theme “Evening in Tuscany” ordered regional food, arranged for great Wines to be tasted, decor to set the mood and our “open air’  Green screen photo booth to provide the interactive entertainment. We supplied the fun with photo backgrounds that fit the Tuscany theme along with fun props to help the guest get into caricature. Once the flashes started and the pictures were circulating  the action at the green screen photo station was non-stop. Happy guests – Happy Client!

Oh No! what happened to our foreman

We had the honor of being part of the Carhartt clothing company’s 125th-year celebration right here in Michigan. To add to the anniversary theme, we suggested some Old Time photos to Capturing the fun and make souvenir keepsake picture for the employees.  This was one group of workers that needed no coaxing to get in front of the camera we got some great shots and lots of laughs.
