Celebrating one of Lux Arati’s own

Back in May one of Lux Arati’s own got hitched! Nicole and Chris got married under the Shambles at Headhouse square. The rain pushed the fire show back a bit, but the clouds cleared to beautifully slicked down cobblestone and dramatic skies. It was awesome to see the guests’ faces watching the show. For many of them it was the first time they’d seen Lux Arati in person, and they all seemed sufficiently wow-ed. In what is perhaps the best compliment ever, Chris’ 9 year old nephew (who helped out by lighting the fire bouquet to start the show) excitedly asked when the next wedding was going to be. His mom had to tell him not every wedding has a fire show! The wedding photographers, Black White & Raw, did an amazing job covering the whole event. Nicole picked them specifically because they not only had a great wedding portfolio, they also had a lot of experience with sideshows and fire photography. They did not disappoint. Nicole worked with artist John Howell to commission a metal flower for the center of her bouquet, and lighting it with Chris started off the show. The finale was, of course, an amazing fire breath by Michelle. What a way to get a party started! Check out video and some of Black White & Raw’s photos below.

Twisted Tail Halloween!

It’s that time again…. cool weather coming, sweaters, hot cider and turning leaves. Which means every fire dancer’s favorite holiday is around the corner! If you’re in the Philly area and looking for something to do, come on by the Twisted Tail! We’ll be spinning fire outside again this year, lighting up Headhouse Square with some fun fiery antics.

Happy Halloween

We had a lot of fun this Halloween over at the Twisted Tail for the second year in a row. Whenever we perform in public there are always countless lenses aimed at us… I do the best I can to track down photos that are made public (thank you, geotagged instagram posts!) but occasionally I manage to touch base with some actual photographers on-site. Thank you so much, J. Allen, for following up on the business card quickly forced into your hand by a sweaty and sooty fire dancer! Check out more of his work here.
