Tracy+Garett’s Wedding Highlights @ Pacific Aviation Museum

The family and friends who gathered to celebrate Tracy & Garett tying the knot were in for a real treat!  The wedding reception was held on Ford Island’s hidden gem . . . the Pacific Aviation Museum.  For many, including myself, it was our first time on this 441 acre island located in the middle of Pearl Harbor.  It was named the “Best Little Museum You Haven’t Been to Yet” in the March 2009 “Best of Honolulu” issue of the Honolulu Magazine which set the stage for a truly unique event celebration!  Everyone not only had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the new Mr. & Mrs., but also with the Museum’s collection of WWII planes and the aviation history behind it.  The Museum even offers the chance to be a pilot by operating simulated planes.

Arrangements of plumes of beautiful white feathers, peacock feathers, candles, bottles of wine, and pretty flowers graced the turquoise  linen tabletops.  Chiavari chairs tied with turquoise satin sashes complemented and added to the elegance.  The Bridal table was also beautifully decorated and sat raised upon a stage with a backdrop of white drapery and a lovely chandelier.  In the center of the Bridal table there was a magnificent white peacock centerpiece with its body cascading down the front of the table – OMG it was so stunning!!  The backdrop selected for our studio style photo booth that evening also had a gorgeous chandelier.  And, what was also kind of cool is that we happened to bring along our shimmery champagne gold drapery (as a backdrop for our props) which ended up coordinating not only with the gold linen on the bridal table but also with all the gold chiavari chairs!  Now that is what I like to refer to as serendipity perfection!

Aubrey Akana of Savoir Faire Events and her team did an amazing designing job on the decor.  You can imagine the oohs and aahs as guests were greeted by all this fabulousness!  Together with the Museum’s planes and aviation collection, I felt as if I was in Hollywood at some spectacular movie set-up for a glamorous gala event!  Everyone was also treated to the wonderful music stylings of Ben & Maila along with Dynamic Sounds.  Kudos to all fellow vendors and folks who worked really hard and did an awesome job to make Tracy & Garett’s celebration a wonderful one!

The Booth “took off” inside of Hangar 37 with Tracy, Garett, and their guests who were anxiously willing to come through our “boarding area” (where no passes or ids were required) for some photo booth fun!  We really appreciated all your compliments and positive feedback – thank you!  We also had a great time with all of you too!

The evening ended with us catching the red-eye flight back home.  And, as we departed the Museum and passed over the bridge, I felt a sense of gratitude as I reflected upon the valor and sacrifice made by others in the defense of our freedom in the Pacific which the Museum so honors.  Mahalo to April and Nicole of Pacific Aviation Museum for your kokua and support.  Thank you Frank Amodo who photographed Tracy’s and Garett’s special day!   Thank you Jeremy Amodo and Pat Maemori for the undying love and support you continue to give The Booth – we so appreciate all that you do!

Tracy and Garett thank you for the privilege and honor of being a part of your very special day in such a memorable place!  We wish you all the love and happiness your hearts can hold and then some . . .

With love, Val & Kim 🙂
