Yelpy Halloween!

Once again, we got to party with the Yelp Elite.  THIS time the event was Yelp's High Flyin' Halloween Party at the new Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island.  And most of these Yelpers went all-out on their costumes (when you're surrounded by  recognized critics, your costume HAS to be good). The museum has some amazing World War II era planes and other large scale items on display.  This is not a "glass case" kind of museum.  The exhibits really put you IN the scene.  There is also a lot of floor space since it used to be a military hangar.   Great for a dance floor!

This Yelp event was organized once again by the INCREDIBLY talented and detail oriented Emi Hart who we caught up with while setting up the DIY cupcake station.  Notice the airplane themed costume.  We told you she was all about the details! 

The "nerds" from T-Mobile who donated prizes for the costume contest.

Thanks again to Paul's Poppers (who were at the last Yelp event with us)!  We would have been STARVING all night if you guys hadn't been there!  And the new lilikoi cheesecake popper was killer!

P.F. Chang's kept the drinks going all night.  The giant missiles behind them were pretty freaky though.  

It was also great to meet Leila Okahara & her husband with Kreative Photo.  If you need a photo booth, their rates are REALLY good (like ours)!  The print quality from the photos they took was high res, clean & glossy.  

 Sounds were provided by DJ Troy Michael.  You guys were a lot of fun!

Regal Bakery showed off their BACON doughnuts!  Of course they also had some vegetarian options too.  Makes doughnuts almost sound healthy when you put it that way!

Aloha Beer Company (brewed at Sam Choy's) brought the Aloha Lager!

Another great part of the museum is the Combat Simulator Flights.  

 When flying like a bat just isn't cutting it.

 No Halloween party is complete without a costume contest.  Some of our favorites included: Kitana from Mortal Kombat

(Thankfully) Non-Twilight Vampires

Geppetto & Pinocchio 

Mr. & Mrs. Julia Childs

Charlie & his two Goddesses - this giant Charlie face just got funnier all night.

And the winner of this year's costume contest...LEGO BATMAN!!

Right after the contest, several of the guests broke out into a flash mob THRILLER.  

 We hope everyone had as much fun as we did.  Here's a few more pictures of the creative costumes that turned up:

Happy Halloween, Everybody!!

Ryan & Jessica Engagement Shoot

We met Ryan & Jessica about two years ago when they first came to Hawaii.  Ryan has an incredible green thumb, and knows a ton about organic farming.  Jessica, is also really into sustainable living & loves cooking and baking from scratch.  They both met at church in Colorado and fell in love in high school.  They plan to have a ceremony on New Years Eve, but since it's in Colorado, they wanted to have a Hawaiian photo shoot at the beach.  Ryan & Jessica, we're so glad you're in our lives & that you've been such great friends.  We wish you all the best and dream of visiting you at the farm!

Sean & Pohai

Pohai & Sean started their day at the Pacific Beach Hotel in Waikiki.  For the ladies, it was early morning hair & makeup.  For the boys it was a couple extra hours of sleep to make up for the late night PS3 Rock Band playing at the hotel.  From the wedding to the reception, both Pohai & Sean really let their personalities shine throughout the day.  Thanks for letting us share such a beautiful day with you two!
