Working on Modeling Poses

Before arriving at your photoshoot location, think about how you’re going to pose. As you’ll hear in this video, “the camera captures everything,” so be aware of every part of your body during your photoshoot.

Model Britt Bergmeister is candid when she advises models to let loose and have fun. Give your photographer many poses and a lot of personality to work with. She thinks special moments are captured when you have fun at a photoshoot location rather than act cautious or shy.

Create a fun atmosphere at one of The Glasshouses photoshoot locations in the Chelsea Arts Tower. Whether you need a wedding reception venue or a photoshoot location near NYC, we have the space for you. Call us at (646) 402-6557 to learn more about how we can create the perfect event for you.

A Wedding Day Guide for Grooms

There is more to being a groom than just showing up at the wedding venue. Thankfully, your big day shouldn’t be too hard on you. Just remember these few tips, and you should have a great start to your new married life.

Don’t Forget to Eat

It may seem silly, but try to grab a good breakfast and lunch before you walk down the aisle. If you are the type to get a little angry when you’re hungry, have your best man keep snacks handy throughout the day. Either way, don’t forget to eat—even if it’s only a little bit—on this very busy day.

Don’t Forget a Haircut and Shave

The bride is getting her hair styled and her nails polished for your wedding day; you need to pamper yourself, as well. Make sure your hair is cut and your facial hair is shaved the way you and your fiancée prefer. If you want to throw in a manicure and pedicure—with or without polish, of course—then feel free to truly pamper yourself.

Don’t Forget Hydration

You don’t want to stand at the end of the aisle and pass out from dehydration, right? Make sure you and your groomsmen are drinking water throughout the day. This is important in daily life, but it is especially important on your big day.

Don’t Forget the Rings

Before heading to the wedding venue, make sure you or your best man have the ring, or rings, handy at all times. Keep them safe in your pocket until the moment comes to exchange rings with your soon-to-be wife.

Don’t Forget to Show Up

This should go without saying, but remember the correct time and place to show up. You should’ve been to the rehearsal the day before, so as long as you can get the time right, your wedding day can go off without a hitch.

Lighting Your Indoor Wedding

As you can see in the video, lighting your wedding venue and wedding reception venue should be an important consideration if you want your pictures to come out beautifully. Consult with your party space coordinators and photographer on the best ways to light your individual space.

A photographer might set up lights in the corners of the space. This helps create more organic lighting throughout the room instead of shining a light directly on the action and creating unwanted shadows. Try to keep the mood lighting of your wedding and reception bright enough to produce beautiful pictures, and you won’t regret it.

Throwing a Memorable Memorial Day Soiree

Memorial Day NYC

Memorial Day is a different kind of patriotic holiday. It isn’t as flashy as Independence Day, but it attracts more parties and all-around fun than Veteran’s Day or Labor Day. Here are some ways to start the summer season off right and have a great Memorial Day party space everyone will be talking about.

Keep the Patriotic Colors Minimal
Since Memorial Day does garner a celebration of sorts, keep the red, white, and blue colors to a minimum. Instead of covering your party space rental in wall-to-wall patriotism, let the colors shine through in accents. Create patriotic centerpieces, use colored dishes and silverware, and decorate or design your food in a patriotic fashion. Your party will be memorable because of its simplicity.

Serve Patriotic Summer Desserts
Summer is just beginning when Memorial Weekend comes around, so take advantage of the amazing summer foods available. Summer desserts—typically filled with delicious and juicy fruits—can be arranged to look like the American Flag or decorated as colored stars. Serve dessert kabobs with alternating strawberries, marshmallows, and blueberries to get those accented colors in. Cut out cookies in the shapes of stars, decorate cupcakes in blue frosting and red cake, or create strawberry and blueberry parfaits. The options are almost limitless when it comes to fresh and yummy patriotic desserts you can create.

Use Confetti in Place of Fireworks
Fireworks are not a typical addition to Memorial Day, but that doesn’t matter at your soiree. Fill up balloons with confetti. At the opportune moment, instruct your guests to pop the balloons to see “fireworks” up close. This creative alternative to fireworks may be a little tough to clean up at your party space, but it will have everyone applauding at the end of the night.

There are your typical event spaces, and then there are The Glasshouses event spaces in NYC. When you want a memorable party, head to the Chelsea Arts Tower or call (646) 402-6557 to see two of New York’s most gorgeous party spaces.
