Pacific Weddings – The White Party @ The Modern Honolulu

Posted by on Sep 17, 2012 in News, Special Events, Weddings | 0 comments

Wow, it was a beautiful summer’s evening for Pacific Weddings‘ White Party!  The Sun Suite at The Modern Honolulu provided the picture-perfect setting overlooking the ocean and yacht harbor for the event! Tables on the terrace were draped with to-die-for white sequins linens by Les Saison which shimmered and shined all evening.  Gorgeous white roses, a timeless classic, were used throughout the decor along with arrangements of clear cylinder vessels of varying heights with glowing floating candles created a warm and inviting atmosphere of modern sophistication!  Yvonne Designs and Mood Events spun their magic on all the decor details from the flowers, drapery, lighting, and even an ingenious custom made table which showcased the focal tablescape that incorporated Pacific Weddings’ logo fashioned with white roses which were all elegantly executed to perfection! The friendly staff of The Modern were on hand serving cocktails and delicious appetizers.  Loved the pretty buffet set-up of divine desserts!  There were even white chocolate dipped chips and yummy white mochi that coordinated with the color theme. You’ll want to get your hands on the latest Pacific Weddings issue which features the most romantic wedding locales and is overflowing with beauty and inspiration!  One of my favorite real weddings featured is the union of Nicole & Chauncey Brown’s at Haiku Sugar Mill in Maui.  It was obvious that a lot of time, thought and love was put into creating this breathtaking and amazing wedding!  Angel Eyes (page 26) is their love story.  The photos captured by the talented Anna Kim brings “oohs” and “aaahs” as it unveils dazzling details!  Another real wedding featured that I loved was that of Jullian & Derek Ahrens who had a romantic beach union at the Outrigger Canoe Club.  Their Unforgettable story (page 56) will touch your heart and soul.  The one and only Frank Amodo was there to brilliantly capture all the precious moments of this destination wedding!  If “a picture is worth a thousand words,” imagine what multiple pages of gorgeous pictures would be worth . . . In addition, Pacific Weddings has a free app for the iPad & iPhone.  The picture quality of the magazine on the iPad is awesome!  Now, wherever I am with my iPad, I have Pacific Weddings at my fingertips a click away — love it!! The Booth was really excited to contribute some fun and laughter to the event.  Pacific Weddings’ (“PW”) logo was the inspiration for the beautiful white roses floral works of art created by Yvonne Design for The Booth‘s backdrop and one of the tablescapes.  We, too, incorporated PW’s logo into the design for the photo prints which guests got to take home along with a goodie bag that included the hot-off-the press issue of Pacific Weddings to remember the FUNtastic event by!  We loved seeing familiar faces and enjoyed getting to know those that came to the party.  It was nice to hear that everyone that experienced The Booth had a blast!  It was great to see Frank Amodo in front of the camera for a change hamming it up with friends in the photo booth.  He even managed to do some “photo bombing” and if you look closely, in some photos, Frank is playing peek-a-boo and making funny faces behind the drapery (lol)!  Below are some photos to enjoy with more on our Facebook page.  We would love for you to “LIKE” us on Facebook and then feel free to comment and tag yourselves and others you may know. A warm mahalo to Renee Tomita of The Modern Honolulu and their staff for helping to make the event...

Gotcha & A New Photo Booth Record!!

Posted by on Jun 13, 2012 in Birthdays, News | 0 comments

As Gomer Pyle use to say, “surprise, surprise, surprise” and that is what we shouted when Kimmie opened her front door!  She was actually speechless for a few moments – I know hard to imagine for those that know her! Too awesome for words Hubby Frankie kept Kimmie and their girls out of their home from early morning until later in the afternoon so that we could set-up for her surprise birthday party!  Frankie and Jeremy did a great job planning and keeping things secret!  Then there’s me calling and checking in with Frankie saying, “can you talk or is Kimmie there?”  It’s not that easy to try and “hide” from Kimmie’s sharp senses for weeks on end!  I know Frankie had to store party supplies in his car hoping that Kimmie wouldn’t see it. On the day of, Jeremy had to assemble some things and made a couple of trips to pickup all the food.  Lots of ono kine grinds and a “live” sushi bar station by Superb Sushi Hawaii were enjoyed by everyone!  The party favors were Nutella and breadsticks – so yummy and a favorite of many including adorable Kiyana!  I always heard about Nutella and just recently finally tried it and now I’m hooked too! And, of course, to complete the celebration we set up The Booth for some fun memory-making moments!  It was at this event that a NEW record was set in our studio style photo booth.  Check it out below- a record high of 22 people in ONE shot!  I had to recount several times to be sure as I would lose track counting all those “colorful” bodies!  Did you notice the backdrop?  It’s one of our newest in our Specialty line called Heaven & Earth. A special thank you to Natalie, Jason, Pat and Sun for all your help at the party – you guys are always so supportive!  Thank you to everyone that came out to honor and celebrate Kimmie’s birthday!  I know she was touched by each and every one of you there along with those who expressed their love and best wishes. My dearest Kimmie, wishing you ALWAYS . . . LOVE to surround you, WARM memories to cheer you, and HAPPINESS to fill your beautiful heart!! With all my love, Mama Val   Share      ...

Since its creation, The Booth continues to strive to offer a unique photo booth experience (studio style) and raises its bar to be original, creative and a trendsetter.  Such is the case with our beautiful “signature” black & white damask design backdrop which has set the tone for our photo booth style (chic, sophisticated, stylish, fresh, modern, or as my partner Kim says, “more fancy smancy”).  This signature “look” inspired the coolest one-of-a-kind “booth” cleverly designed and built by Kim’s hubby, Frank Amodo, to house our unique system that also perfectly complements our overall decor set-up from our linens, furnishings, props, etc. which we are very proud of.  And, we are thankful and thrilled to hear from all of you that you have fallen in love with The Booth too!  While all of our awesome backdrops continue to receive oohs and aahs, we love to keep The Booth looking fresh and new by bringing in new treasures to add to our ever growing collection! We are now excited to introduce and offer a few more backdrops to choose from in our “Specialty” collection . . .

We are so honored, thrilled and excited that our studio style photo booth was featured on Pacific Weddings’ Love Notes blog today!! I was first introduced to Pacific Weddings (fka Pacific Rim Weddings) through Frank Amodo.  After purchasing my first issue several years ago, I fell in love with the magazine!  Shortly after that, I just had to have ALL the issues from day one as part of my collection so I went online and ordered it all! OMG I still remember when the box arrived – it weighed a ton!  As I flipped through each issue, I was in “Pacific” heaven.  So its pretty cool to be a part of this “full circle” moment today in that the magazine we have admired and fell in love with has now through their Love Notes blog is featuring our new “love” The Booth! Our heartfelt thanks to Robyn Iaea, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of Pacific Weddings magazine for the wonderful post!  A special thank you and shout out to Frank for your continued love + support – you’re simply the BEST!

A Spooktacular Halloween Night . . .

Posted by on Nov 3, 2011 in Blog, News, Special Events | 0 comments

This Halloween was a special one for our photo booth.  We wanted to start a tradition and hopefully this tradition will catch on.  It all started when we were pondering over the idea of using our photo booth for a Halloween event and thought it would be awesome to set it up outside of Kim’s home in Ewa Beach.  At first when the rain came down we said, “Oh no we hope we can still set up the booth for Halloween!”  Then shortly thereafter peeking through the clouds appeared a blue sky and we all started cheering – “Photo booth!! Photo booth!!!” We really didn’t know what to expect but we wanted to capture some halloween memories by offering the neighbors the chance to take a picture for free.  We were excited to see that The Booth was a hit and we really appreciated all the kind words we received!  In fact some folks enjoyed the photo booth so much that they started giving us money.  I guess we can start a fund with the tips we got for next year’s Halloween photo booth fun!  LOL!! Although Halloween is mostly for the young, that didn’t stop the “young at heart” from getting into the Halloween spirit as they too paraded down the street holding flashlights and bags waiting to be filled with treats!  It’s the time of year where potential cavities are forgotten for one night!  To add to the Halloween festivities the house was decorated with web-laced bushes, a flying ghost & skeleton, hanging jack-o-lanterns and spider webs crawling up the walls!  The setting was made complete with spooky sound effects and fog lingering in the background. So if you would like to check out all the ghosts, monsters, witches, super heros, princesses and other characters that stopped by that night, please check out The Booth’s facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheBoothHawaii.  And if you happened to be there that night make sure you “LIKE” us then tag yourselves. Thank you to all the fun-loving trick or treaters who stopped by the photo booth to capture some fun Halloween memories with your awesome costumes!  We’re glad you had a great time too and we look forward to doing it again next year!     Share...
