Here is a highlight video we created for this wedding.
For this wedding 1/3 of the full ballroom was not used. Around 175 guests attended. There was no head table but there was a family table where the bride & groom sat. The dance floor was wrapped with their custom monogram. The wrap was provided by Accel Party Rentals. The room was fully draped and provided by It's So Pretty Linens.
The couple originally got married in Napa Valley so they wanted the wedding theme to represent their wedding there.
The uplighting color they wanted was a lavenderish/purple color. We also provided 4 star gobo fixtures. 2 of the fixtures were facing on the dance floor and the other 2 on the wall besides the monogram. You can see samples of them in the photos above. We had the uplights static for most of the night until the dancing portion where we did some cool effects.
With the amount of uplighting we provided, we placed 16 along the wall with the monogram. The other 16 we placed around the room. 32 is a good amount for a venue this size to get almost a full room coverage. We could not place any on the wall by the buffet tables.
We normally create the custom monogram for you but the bride wanted to make it herself. She sent us the monogram and we projected it onto the drapes where she wanted it.
Our dj mixes music and our lighting designer controls the lighting to the music. For almost every new song, our lighting designer changes the lighting up. For the video above during the song "September", our lighting designer used colors that represents fall which starts in September. Our LD also uses cool chase and strobe patterns which go to the beat of the song.
Along with our uplighting, we also provided 12 effect lights. These effect lights are primarily used during the dancing portion of the night and in some occasions, during the first dance, father/daughter, or mother/son dance. In the video above, our effect lighting is the white dots going around the room. It simulates a mirror ball effect and also can change colors. The other effect lighting we used are the large triangles going across the room. We occasionally switch the triangles with other patterns like stars, hearts, swirls, etc. throughout the night.
Below is a 360 video which gives you an idea of our full room lighting coverage.
The couple selected Slick Vic as their emcee because the couple wanted a fun and energetic emcee. Slick Vic is a great choice for that. Slick Vic is not a part of the premium package but we can add him to the package for a small charge. You can listen to Slick Vic in the mornings on 98.5
We also provided a hashtag print station. The couple utilized the hashtag print station as a game. They provided a list of items on each table. The guests that obtains the most items on that list, wins a prize. A great and fun way to get everyone taking pics at your event.
For the photo booth, we created a strip style layout. When it prints, our guests get's 2 copies. The background used was a gold sequin backdrop. The image on the bottom of the layout was also created by the bride.
This was a great wedding with a great couple. It's always a pleasure working with the staff at the Hyatt. The staff there are really easy to work with and their vendor meals are really good. The loading dock makes it easy to move our equipment in and out.
In the past year, we have seen a big increase in weddings happening at the He'eia State Park Banquet Hall. We have booked quite a few there and had many inquiries. Speaking with a client whom booked our services there, informed me that they have doubled their rates.
We are not sure why this venue has become really popular the past year or so. Maybe it's the location? The rustic feel? The view?
Here is a highlight video we did at this venue.
The services we provided was our Essential Package along with our Dancing In The Clouds effect. We also provided extra microphones and equipment for the 3 person band that was performing.
We provided 18 uplights. 10 of which we placed on the backdrop behind the sweetheart table. The rest of the uplights we placed on the 6 pillars where the hanging drape ends. There weren't much other areas to place our uplights on so most of the uplights ended up behind the sweetheart table since that is the direction of where the focus is.
We did provide our monogram service which made it really tricky to place. The original plan was to place it behind the sweetheart table but was not able to because of the pallet structure that was placed there. The only other option was to place it on the floor. This made it extremely awkward with our projector. Luckily, we had the equipment to work with the angle that we had to work with.
As you can see in the photo above on the left, the monogram was not projected from the front or back, but to the side. With the projector and equipment we had, we were able to project from the side, and also fix the skew it would've had from projecting at an angle. This makes it possible to set up our projector almost anywhere.
For our effect lighting, we added patterns like stars and other shapes during the dancing portion of the wedding. All which is controlled by our dedicated lighting designer.
A lighting designer can bring so much depth in your event. The right lighting and the right effect can enhance your wedding. Here is one example with the video below
The uplights give a chasing effect which leads to the front where the groom is. When he throws the garter, our lighting designer gives the strobing effect to signify that the garter is in the air. Once the guest catches it, the lights go full on to show that someone has caught it.
Most people will notice the lighting but subtle things like what we did with the garter toss video above, most people will not notice. Doing things like that will add to the mood of the event subliminally. Allowing your guests to enjoy your event even more.
