Down to the Wire - Apollo to the Wedding Rescue!
Updated: Dec 28, 2019
What happens when a vendor backs out THREE DAYS before the wedding??
Evansville brides and grooms, it has been a busy week in the world of Apollo Events. Between DJ, photography, and photo booth gigs/meetings, our calendar has been pretty full. Still, we were able to kick it up a notch to help cover Liam & Addy on their wedding day. This was a fun roller coaster ride of an event, and I want to share how it all went down.
This past Wednesday we received a call from a gentleman requesting a photo booth quote for a wedding that upcoming Saturday. Apparently, the company that had originally agreed to cover the booth rental for his son's wedding had backed out at the last minute. This is something the bride and groom were really looking forward to, and they were understandably upset. Working quickly between manager/photographer Andy and photo booth tech Kelly, we quoted them and were offered the job in half an hour of our client first reaching out!
Just a quick note to make here: The father that reached out to us was a stressed man. His son was getting married in three days. He'd been working on a home improvement project that had suffered a setback the same day. On top of it all, a vendor he thought he had secured had suddenly disappeared. You could literally hear the sigh of relief when he knew one of those challenges had been resolved.
On our end of things, we jumped into "GO mode"! When we learned there'd be a setup conflict between the photo booth and catering, we let the father know to not worry, we'd figure it out. Their wedding planner did a great job of getting us all of the necessary details (Jolene, if you're reading this, you're an angel). We kept the father in the loop so it was one less thing he had to worry about for the wedding.
After a late night on the computer, we were able to create prints (in both 2X6 and 4X6 sizes) that would flow with the colors and theme of their wedding. We were even able to find a new backdrop that would mesh with it all! By Friday night, we were loaded up and ready to go. By Saturday, we had happy guests snapping pics to share with friends and family.
We're a family business. We understand the stress and worries that can surround weddings. Our goal is to be the solution to all of that. Our clients can rest easy knowing we'll always do what it takes to make the big day as magical as possible.
