A Moulin Rouge inspired 50th Birthday Celebration

A Moulin Rouge inspired 50th Birthday Celebration was held on October 28, 2015 here at modernized historic venue NOVA 535 in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. My long-time friend from the University of South Florida MBA program Olivier was approaching the big 50 and something proper needed to be done about it. He spends several months a year here in sunny St. Pete, “getting away” from his amazing home in the south of France. Olivier is a warm, friendly, worldly guy, traveling all over the globe, enjoying new people, places and experiences, always with a big smile on his face. Well for his 50th, we wanted to ensure that he was smiling from ear to ear, especially as Olivier made some pretty specific “suggestions’ as to how he wanted the night to go.

20 Years later Mark and Shelli still Get the Picture

Who doesn’t love climbing into a nicely decorated photobooth at a party? You’ve selected several crazy props and along with your partner / friends / kids / family / fellow drunkie you’ve just met, and it’s time for silly faces and spontaneous kisses and so much more! Well Mark and Shelli enjoyed this so much they created their own successful photo booth company, Get The Picture FL, around that joyus experience of making memories that you (usually) cherish forever. But this story isn’t just about the business of making photobooth memories, it’s about making a deep personal lifetime commitment to someone you love and cannot live without. Well, 20 years later, Mark and Shelli still Get the Picture!
