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.
