Mad Chicken Studio Grand Opening

On June 7, 2018 we had the most incredible day! As Jes said, "It felt like the best birthday party ever!" and she's right. That was the evening of Mad Chicken Studio's Grand Opening. We had amazing food, an amazing theme, amazing guests, amazing vendors to help us achieve our amazing night.... If you didn't gather, it was pretty amazing.

But why take my word for it when you can experience it for yourself?! Check out this 1 minute, 22 second video of the event!

Special thanks to Mason Lehto for capturing the essence of our evening in the video above. He is truly a master at his craft (Black Friday Teaser Video, anyone?!) and we will never trust anyone else with his video needs. Check out his website to see all his services and check out more videos. ALSO! Remember Natalie?! (I know you remember her but come die over her blog with me again....) They're engaged and if you are up for all the happy tears, check out their video because it's magical!

The Red Herring Lounge provided alcoholic beverages as well as the wonderful bartenders! They helped us create our signature drinks - The Mood Maker and The Confidence Booster - and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome!

Duluth Coffee Company had a hand in the signature drinks as well! Their cold press made an appearance in The Confidence Booster and was a huge hit! To be fair, the cold press is a huge hit with us every day. Loved the drink, love the coffee, love them, TAKE ALL OUR LOVE!!

Wildbooth provided tons of entertainment for the evening as seen in the video and in the photos seen below. It only seemed fitting that people have their photos taken while being in the studio and it allowed them to show off their silly sides! Thinking about a photo booth for your next event? If not, you should be! Check them out here!

Fleurtation created the floral art in our space including the mirror pieces, centerpieces, and the headpieces found on the mannequins. I kid you not, we just threw them away last week (two months after the grand opening - and they were STILL gorgeous! They dried beautifully!!).
