McKinley High School – Class of ’82 30th Reunion @ Hawaii Prince Hotel

Posted by on Oct 30, 2012 in Special Events | 1 comment

The air was filled with excitement as The Booth and McKinley High School’s Class of ’82 were setting up for the big celebration!  These guys had a couple days’ worth of partying prior to attending this beautiful reception at the Hawaii Prince Hotel.  We could tell this bunch was going to be a riot because all night the Emcee kept poking fun at many of his high school buddies.  Don’t let their age fool you these guys knew how to party!  The event included a wonderful buffet spread, games with great prizes, hula dance performances, and great live music by JP Project that kept everyone on their feet dancing to the very end!  There was also a slide show that captured many fond memories from the “good ole days” and a few moments remembering their fellow classmates who continue to live on in their hearts. The Booth started out with people who really didn’t know what we were all about, but as the night progressed those shy guys in the beginning became regulars in The Booth.  We remember one lady who told us if we needed someone when we did our system check she would be glad to be our model!  Of course she was the first one in line when The Booth started at 6:00 p.m. only to return later with her husband who ended up carrying her while striking a pose — they had a blast!  It’s one of the reasons that make The Booth great — you’re not boxed in so you have more flexibility and room to be creative to do poses like that!  Some mentioned that the reunion reminded them of prom night in that they got all dressed up and now anxiously waiting to get their picture taken.  It was really nice to see everyone enjoying each other’s company while reminiscing and catching up on each other’s lives.  They appreciated and loved their photo keepsakes to remind them of a very special evening spent with their long time friends. Thank you to Linda at Hawaii Prince Hotel and the staff for helping to make the event a success!  A special thank you to Ken Anama for recommending us.  And, a very warm mahalo to the Class of ’82 for having us be a part of your very spirited 30th reunion!  You are an awesome class!  Go Tigers . . . With much aloha, Val & Kim 🙂    ...

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...

Eat, Drink & Woo . . . A Taste of Saint Patrick 2012

Posted by on Feb 14, 2012 in Special Events | 0 comments

A Taste of Saint Patrick was a fundraising event for student scholarships that was absolutely FUNtastic!  There was something for everyone to enjoy at this year’s Valentine’s theme “Eat, Drink & Woo” from the ono grindz, live entertainment, a silent auction, a country market, a kids zone with activities like face painting and giant bouncers for jumpin’ and, for the first time, The Booth with its studio style photo booth and much more!  I heard that a lot of the food and goodies were so popular that they were selling out including the shaved ice!  They even had one of my favorite sweet treats . . . cotton candy (which I did manage to get early in the day)! The Booth was jamming all day long and we had a blast with everyone that stopped by to experience our studio style photo booth – most of you for the very first time!  And, as usual, we had a lot of people that kept coming back for one  “hana hou” after another only to bring someone new along (or not).   They were “hooked” and just couldn’t get enough of The Booth even until the very end!  We were happy to see all the smiling faces and hearing all the laughter as everyone was having a grand ole’ time in the photo booth! Our hats go off to coordinator extraordinaire, Aubrey Akana-Figueira of Savoir Faire Events & Michelle Johnston and their teams for doing such an outstanding job!  Thank you to all the helpful volunteers – you were super!  A BIG mahalo to Saint Patrick School for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful event and to everyone who helped to make it a successful one! We would love it if you would “LIKE” us on Facebook and feel free to tag yourself and anyone you know.  Here are some of our favorite photos of the day with more on our Facebook page . . .  ...

Posted by on Jan 30, 2012 in Special Events, Weddings | 0 comments

OMG where do we begin . . .  We are recovering from our first three-day expo of “don’t stop till you drop of photo booth fun.”  Thanks to all of you that stopped by to experience our studio style photo booth!  Many returned bringing family and friends to share in the fun and some even came back on all three days!  Each day a different backdrop from our collection was featured for a different look and feel.  It was pretty cool to see the look of surprise from those that returned each day only to be excited once again to experience The Booth. We were happy to hear that folks were loving everything about our booth with its black & white color palette from linens to our cozy lounge area with white leather furnishings and a pair of black & white damask design chairs, a black decorative rug, along with our very own dj station dripping with hanging crystals all sitting beneath a sheer white embroidered canopy.  Then there was the main attraction – our studio style photo booth with its beautiful backdrop and all the props and trimmings which complemented and filled the rest of the space.  Mahalo to April Ramos at Art & Signs for The Booth’s signage and Frank Amodo for framing it so nicely! There was no question as to who we were as our awesome sign hung proudly in our booth space! And BIG Mahalo’s to our awesome neighbors DeepKauai for making our awesome custom shirts! It was a blast having an ongoing party within our booth complete with ono food, live entertainment thanks to our djs (Friend or Foe) and all of you that stepped into our studio style photo booth!  It was such a riot to see all the good fun and crazy creativeness of everyone – you were all so awesome! We were honored to have friends and fellow vendors come visit us too – mahalo to . . .
