Cheryl + George’s Wedding Highlights @ Ihilani

Posted by on Aug 23, 2012 in Weddings | 0 comments

Oh what a gorgeous wedding Cheryl & George had at the JW Marriott Ihilani!  The Ihilani held a very special place in their hearts because it was there they had their first date and the place where George proposed to Cheryl! Cheryl, of course, looked amazing in her gorgeous gown that was chosen from The Bridal Boutique whose co-owner Joyce Coelho is also related to the bride – how special and lucky!  There were so many inspiring and dreamy details at this beautiful wedding from . . . pink uplighting in the Ocean Ballrooms which showcased their custom monogram names up in lights surrounded by a design of white roses by Exclusive Sound Entertainment.  Every table had an elegant floral tablescape (each one unique and beautiful) surrounded with soft candlelights, mirrors, rose petals and more!  Chair coverings were in white with “gun-metal” gray sashes.  Pretty silver favor boxes filled with chocolates and pink origami cranes also adorned the tables. Cheryl & George’s sweetheart lounge was simply stunning with white furnishings, flowing drapery and glimmering sequins table linens from Les Saison with touches of an array of pink flowers.  George’s family from TGIS Flowers did a fabulous job with all the beautiful bouquets, floral decor at the ceremony, reception and everything in between! All this fabulousness was not limited to the ceremony site and ballroom but also carried over into the cocktail lounge and receiving table area where guests admired the stunning framed design of kois made with origami cranes.  Also on the table was a silver “tree” dripping with crystals and silver cranes and at its base a dazzling display of adorable photos of our happy couple! As some of our fans may recall, Cheryl & George were the winners of our drawing at the Hawaii Bridal Expo in January.  We were excited to be a part of their special day and to see everyone having a lot of crazy fun in our studio style photo booth!  It was great to see that the brand new props we brought along were a hit too.  Below are some photos captured that evening and more can be seen on our Facebook page.  Please LIKE  us and then feel free to tag yourselves and anyone else you may know! Kudos to photographers Frank Amodo and Jeremy Amodo, coordinator & friend of the bride, Missy, for doing an awesome job.  A warm mahalo to Joe Ibarra and the friendly staff at JW Marriott Ihilani for the wonderful service and to everyone else for all that you did to make Cheryl & George’s day a happy and memorable one! Congratulations and much happiness to our super lucky and fun-loving couple Cheryl & George!! WIth much aloha, Val & Kim 🙂    ...

Many warm and friendly family & friends came out to celebrate Micah’s achievements and graduation from Roosevelt High School! The Palolo Honwanji hall was festively decorated with red and yellow balloons and glass centerpieces were filled to the brim with sweet treats! Everyone enjoyed all the ono kine grinds (and believe me there was a lot)!  One of my fav was the beef steak – it was so tender & tasty and the desserts were yummo too! Up on the stage, music entertainment was provided by a DJ spinning cool tunes and an ongoing slideshow honoring Micah played throughout the party. The Booth was also there providing lots of photo booth fun, entertainment and laughs for all!  Mahalo to everyone that came by to create some lasting memories – you were great!  Below are a few photos taken at Micah’s party for you to enjoy.  More pics can be seen on our Facebook page where you are free to tag, comment and even “LIKE” us.

Charmaine’s Grad Party @ Hawaii Okinawa Center

Posted by on Aug 10, 2012 in Graduations | 0 comments

Charmaine’s party was our very first graduation party booked from last year and we were thrilled that the day had finally arrived!  The room was full of excited family and friends all ready to join in the celebration at the Hawaii Okinawa Center. The happiest of all flowers . . . sunflowers was the theme and like Charmaine, are bright, warm and cheery!  Everything had touches of sunflowers from her beautiful invitation to the party decor down to all the lovely details!  At the reception table there was the pretty sunflower painted mailbox with a Pacific University Oregon pennant attached to the flag of the mailbox along with a bouquet of balloons.  Some other favorites of mine were on the cookie buffet . . . the round die-cut scalloped “labels” made to look like flowers, the bands of ribbon around the assortment of cookie jars, the ribbon-tied tongs, and a sweet thank you message with a sunflower label attached to the bags for the cookie treats made it all look extra special!  Bright yellow and chocolate colored balloons added splashes of color and got along quite happily with the centerpieces – a blue tinted cylinder vase tied with raffia with a single sunflower sitting inside on a bed of glass stones.  And, those popular mini hand sanitizers were wrapped in yellow and brown organza pouches made cute favors! Erwin Soria of Slideshow Specialists, Inc. produced the cool slideshow, djayed and even entertained the guests with some games and gave out prizes too!  One game was who could text a message to Charmaine the fastest.  An awesome singer and amazing dancers performed and entertained as well. At this event we brought along a few new 3D-ish props which was not only a hit but complemented the flower fields backdrop and party theme perfectly!  The bubbles, “bouquet” of balloons and sunflowers in the foreground added a fun and whimsical touch!  Guests were more than happy to take home photo keepsakes that captured some of the fun moments that they had at Charmaine’s party!  Thanks to everyone that came through the photo booth – you guys were great!  If you haven’t already done so, we invite you to visit us on Facebook where you can view the photos, tag, comment, and even like us. Charmaine a graduate of St. Francis School will be attending Pacific University in Oregon to pursue a career in pharmacy.  Thank you so much Charmaine for inviting us to be a part of your wonderful celebration!  Congratulations Charmaine – we wish you a sunny future as bright as can be! With much aloha, Val & Kim 🙂    ...

Oh what a night!  The Booth was invited to be a part of Michon’s graduation party held at the Newtown Recreation Center.  Michon, together with her wonderful family and friends, celebrated with great food, great dancing, great music, and the greatest studio style photo booth in town! The hall was nicely decorated with cute pom pom flowers and green & white balloons.  Bottles of apple cider topped with silver, green & white curling ribbons and a personalized bottle label with a “filmstrip” of adorable photos of Michon served as centerpieces and delicious mochi for favors! Everyone was treated to a real feast . . . Kat’s Sushi was there with two live sushi stations and then Tanioka‘s rolled in with their ono hawaiian kine grinds!  There was also a buffet table full of other yummy pupus and desserts too – I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Michon a graduate of Mid-Pacific Institute is one talented young lady!  She has been a part of Drill Team Hawaii for the past 13 years and is an accomplished dancer!  Michon and other Drill Team Hawaii members performed and entertained a full house of guests and they were wonderful!  The video/slideshow honoring Michon was awesome and I loved the “soundtrack!” We had constant traffic flowing through the photo booth all evening long.  Everyone was having a really great time and we loved adding more fun and laughter to the celebration!  We’ve posted a handful of photos below and the rest can be seen on our Facebook page where you can tag, comment and like us. Natural Vibrations also joined the party with their pop/rock/tropical feel-good beats reggae style music that had guests dancing till the end of the night! We were thrilled to capture a lot of special moments between Michon’s family and friends before she continues her journey into college life at Creighton University to become a Pharmacist.  Congratulations Michon we wish you all the best! With warmest aloha, Val & Kim Share...

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      ...
