Projection Mapping Services
Adding to our amazing list of services is a concept so unique that only a handful of companies offer it. We call it Cake Animation or also commonly referred to as Cake Mapping. We are capable of projecting any image/video/graphic and form-fit it perfectly onto your wedding cake.
Whether it be timeless photos/videos of our bride and groom or their favorite sports team's logo. We create a timeline of projections that can be totally customized to our client's desires.
Through use of special software and projectors, we are able to animate virtually any surface. Custom graphics and scenes are created prior to the event to match your desired theme and bring that surface to life. The possibilities are endless. All of the design and production is done in house as well, so no need to speak to multiple vendors to create the jaw-dropping effect. There is no project too big or too small. Please contact us for more inforamtion.
