Jaclyn+Allen’s Wedding Highlights @ Hilton Hawaiian Village (Coral Ballrooms IV & V)

A wonderful gathering of family and friends were there to witness the Liturgical Celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony of Jaclyn (“Jackie”) and Allen which took place at the beautiful Sacred Heart Parish.  Moments after Jackie & Allen were joined together as one, butterflies were released – a nice touch which tied into their theme!  And, butterflies are also known to symbolize new beginnings . . .

While awaiting the arrival of the new Mr. & Mrs. Gervacio, delicious appetizers and refreshing beverages were enjoyed by guests in the Coral Lounge at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  The Booth was there to entertain and kick off the celebration as hundreds of fun-loving folks waited for their chance to experience the coolest studio style photo booth around!  Guests came decked out for the occasion and enjoyed taking photos in their formal attire.  Some said it reminded them of “prom days” but that our photo booth is way cooler!  It certainly was a FULL house and the photo booth was jammin’ as the lines stretched across the width of the Coral Lounge!

When the bridal party arrived the celebration continued into the Coral Ballrooms.  My goodness where do I begin?  Everywhere you looked there was something to admire at Jackie & Allen’s wedding.  The oh so gorgeous floral arrangements and decor created by the one and only Fong Tagawa of Floral Inspirations were so stunning, so exquisite, and so beautifully designed just for Jackie & Allen!  Loved it all . . . wreaths of white roses, hydrangeas, lilies + votive and floating candles + beautiful finishing touches of sparking butterflies and those “diamond” bracelets + so much more!  Also making an impact as you entered the ballroom was the monogram design with Jackie & Allen’s name in lights swirling around.  It enhanced the ambiance of the evening and further personalized the room making it their own.  The tables were beautifully dressed in white linen with turquoise runners and the chairs were also decked out in white covers and tied with turquoise sashes.  Silver bells were on hand for those butterfly kisses along with pretty favor boxes and table cards which also had butterfly accents.

Jackie was such an amazing bride!  How many brides have you seen that danced a number during the grand entrance + changed into a tahitian costume and danced a number with her maid of honor sister + changed into another beautiful gown to dance a hula for her new hubby + changed into another dress to dance with her hubby and once again change back into her wedding gown all the while looking calm and fabulous!  During the grand entrance “dance” Allen was super energetic and totally awesome – perhaps the next contestant on Dancing With the Stars!

We witnessed a few touching moments that not only pulled on our heartstrings but also those who caught a glimpse of the tears flowing down Allen’s cheeks as he held and danced with his mother.  Then there were all the special and tender moments captured by Studio Red, an International award winning avant-garde team of filmmakers.  It was wonderful seeing how they filmed & captured the essence of the couple’s love story.  And, who else better to have on your dream team to photograph and capture all the magical moments of the day than the incredibly talented Frank Amodo!  A fond mahalo to Frankie for hooking us up last year with Allen.

Everyone also enjoyed the music of the live band which kept them coming up to the dance floor ’til the end. Meanwhile, many of the guests (including the bride and groom) got hooked on The Booth and kept returning throughout the evening changing their “look” with our props and accessories.  A BIG mahalo to all of you that came through The Booth – we had a great time having fun with you!  Please feel free to visit us on Facebook where you can tag and comment on all the fun photos!

It was obvious that a lot of heart, thought, hard work and attention to details went into making this special day a truly spectacular one to remember.  Kudos to all the family and friends of Jackie & Allen who helped to make their wedding celebration a wonderful one!  Thank you to Susan Smith of Hilton Hawaiian Village and the staff for all that you did to make this day possible.

Congratulations Jackie & Allen – it was a real privilege and honor to be part of your wedding day!  We wish you much love and joy as you begin your new life together as husband and wife!

With butterfly kisses and much aloha . . . Val & Kim
