CWP Photo Booths

SPOTLIGHT ON BUSINESS

Picture 1Since starting her photography business in 2012, Candice Wood of Mint Hill, focusing on wedding photography, saw the great demand for photo booths and decided to jump on board.  Photo booths are a great addition to wedding receptions, providing a fun way to add to the photographs you have from your special day.  Also giving your guests a keepsake print, which can take the place of wedding favors if you chose.  Offering a variety of props, backdrops, print layouts and sizes, digital downloads, albums, and more, each event is customized to make your experience unique and fun! Photo booths aren’t limited to wedding receptions; they can bring entertainment to any party or event. With the new “open air” design growing in popularity, it makes photo booths much easier to transport and fit into almost any location. CWP Photo Booths uses the newest technology to make the booth work very smoothly. From the easy to use touch screen, one button start, to having a print in your hands almost instantly. Every booth is accompanied by a professional attendant to offer assistance and answer any questions. Continue reading

The town has put $5,000 as earnest money towards the purchase, which will either be applied at closing or refunded if the grant is not awarded.

The contract specifies an inspection period ending on July 18, 2014.

No decision has been made about improvements to the property or what kind of park will be built.

Future town meetings will be held for citizen feedback if the grant is funded.
