Our Photobooth Sponsor: 1000 Words Events, Mike Abella


We can all agree that photo booths are a lot of fun. We can also agree that a 1968 VW van is fun too. So, we've combined the two and created a SUPER FUN mobile photo booth! It's the first of its kind in Washington State and now you can rent it for your next event. Just like our regular photo booths, the photo van will keep your guests entertained for hours. Guests can choose from a selection of props, climb in and sit in the back seat. Up to 10 people can pile in and strike a pose. Once inside, take your own photos using our proprietary Trigger Happy shutter release system. A few seconds later they will have their very own photo strip to commemorate the event. It's perfect for company picnics, outdoor weddings, or any place we can drive up and park! 


Moondoggy is a 1968 VW bay window van. He has spent his last 46 years living the life in California in search of the perfect wave. Moondoggy was lovingly cared for by his previous owner and it shows. He still sports most of his original interior with a few minor upgrades, particularly the LED lit hardwood floor and shiny red exterior. He's always the life of the party, surprising guests with his unique photo booth setup and making everyone feel welcome inside his comfortable interior. Wherever Moondoggy goes he brings smiles to peoples faces, and now those expressions can be captured with his very own photo booth!

Our Sound/Music/Lighting Sponsor: Absolute Music, David Sader

For more than 20 years, David has been creating the sounds that help set the mood in everything from intimate rooms to massive resorts. His clients include Ralph Lauren, Coach, Tommy Bahama and The Wynn Resorts...and of course hundreds of happy couples. 


We give you tools to plan your day and create a request list.


It's easy and fun. Just log on when you have the time!

Our approach is to learn about your musical tastes and then create a mix that makes your guests comfortable & happy, using the right music, played at the right time. When people are happy, they have fun!

Dessert (ice cream): Sub ZERO

Washington’s first Sub Zero ice cream shop opens this week in Federal Way, and owner Jack Walsh promises a treat for eyes as well as mouths.

Each ice cream dish is made to order and flash frozen with liquid nitrogen — bringing temperatures to 321 degrees below zero and creating a science-lab scene as a white cloud bubbles over the bowl. The sweet concoction turns from liquid to frozen ice cream in about 15 seconds. Customers can choose from an array of flavors and “mix-ins.”

Dessert (petit fours): Celebrity Cake Studio

Celebrity Cake Studio is a boutique cake shop that specializes in artistically designed wedding and occasion cakes. It is family owned and operated by Odette and David D’Aniello and Mary Ann and Lance Quitugua along with cousin Wallace Bolo, the “Baker Supreme.”

Celebrity Cake Studio has customers raving about its delicious made-from-scratch products, attentive customer service and beautifully designed made-to-order cakes. It is now the most highly recommended cake shop in South Puget Sound and has recently been voted Best Cakes in Western Washington.
