With the natural beauty of the Hawaiian islands providing the scenic backdrop, Bridal Dream Hawaii fills in the rest of the details on couples' big days. The wedding specialists offer packaged and à la carte services such as officiants, photographers, flowers, and transportation for beach weddings, as well as more deluxe add-ons including hotel stays and musicians. Wedding coordinator Robert Hamilton is on hand to field questions and inspire ideas by suggesting scenic stretches of sand for the ceremony or tasty tide pools for the cocktail hour.
Royal Party Rentals ably outfits gatherings of all sizes, supplying necessities from tents to silverware. Rent a fete-finishing touch such as a 10'x10' white canopy tent to provide shade for a pool party ($125), or choose a portable 9'x12' dance floor so up to 14 couples can safely bunny hop at the company picnic ($243). Should additional flooring be in order, options such as a 6'x8' stage ensure that the birthday boy or girl stands 12 to 24 inches above the guests as they are pelted with traditional birthday pies ($57). A 48-inch heart-shaped table ($10.25) provides a sweet resting place for Marie Louise china ($0.70–$0.75/plate) or a romantic setting for festive arm wrestling.
The tech-savvy staffers at Geek IT Hawaii serve as a mobile, local IT department for area homes and businesses. They'll diagnose and repair under-the-weather PCs and Macs with honest work: they report all costs beforehand and guarantee their labor and parts for 30 days. Understanding the sinking feeling that comes from losing valuable documents, important emails, blackmail photos, and other data, techs evaluate drives for free before recovering data; if they can't recover anything, there's no charge.
Bougainville’s huge warehouse facility houses more than 300,000 square feet of bipedal runway including carpet, vinyl, wood, and tile.

Expressions Portrait Design’s portfolio captures families, graduates, babies, and even pets. More than 100 backgrounds unfurl on set, letting subjects surround their poses with almost any mood or theme. After the flash has gone off and the “freeze time” switch has been flipped again, color effects and image editing add more options for customization. All photo packages include standard prints, but custom framing, greeting cards, and canvas images also are available to surround portraits with gallery-caliber fanciness.
Natural bamboo and wood fences surround the miniature fairways of Jungle River Mini Golf, whose aptly named course pits putters against a slew of jungle-themed obstacles. Like rainforest explorers, groups of golfers hack through the wild landscape, forgoing machetes for colorful putters or spring-loaded spatulas sized to accommodate guests of all ages. Monkeypod trees, palms, crotons, and banana plants drape over the course, framing many attractions including sculptures of friendly gorillas and dinosaurs emerging from tar pits. The course also features large bridges and waterfalls that meander throughout to create sharp turns and contoured greens.
Since 1982, the technicians at T&T Tinting Specialists have veiled more than 200,000 vehicles with FormulaOne window tint, which repudiates pernicious sunbeams and comes fully protected under a national lifetime warranty. Technicians dim vehicles with four different species of films, such as the Classic series, which lets drivers practice air-flute solos in privacy provided by a soft charcoal shade. The Comfort series’ unique metal alloy, bonded to a special dyed layer, rejects more heat than typical films, while the Pinnacle series features a nonmetalized, nonconductive nano-ceramic technology that keeps buggies cool and defers to signals from all GPS systems, cell phones, and psychics. Intrusive UV rays bounce harmlessly off the Specialty series, which stalwartly resists upholstery-fading beams, sweltering heat, and obstructive glares.
