Light Up Your Event!

We commonly are asked by our client “How can we transform our banquet room into something different?”

Here are some ways to make the room POP! Take lighting to another level with our lighting options and designs.

 

What is Intelligent Lighting?

Intelligent lighting is a term used for an innovative type of party or stage light. Their automated mechanism allows the lights to move and create complicated and colorful effects. For celebrations, intelligent lighting can create lighting arrangements of your desired color to match your theme. This lighting is put on something called trussing. These typically go next or beside our DJ setup or can be placed remotely  on the other side of the dance floor. We will transform your room with these lighting fixtures and create an amazing atmosphere.

How many lights are used?

When we create an event design with intelligent lighting we start with 2 lights. You can add as many fixtures based on your vision. You have the vision, we will make it a reality.

Some of Our Intelligent Lighting Designs

What is UpLighting?

Uplighting is the hottest trend for Weddings, Mitzvahs and  special events to set the mood or transform a venue. “Uplights” are small lighting units that are placed on the floor around the perimeter of your venue. The lights will illuminate the walls from floor to ceiling with colored light. We can program the lights to your specific color theme. Our lights are wireless and battery operated making it easy to set up and also blend in with your venue.

Thats A Wrap! Custom Decals! Dance Floor Decals!

AJH offers a hot new product that brands and ties together a theme for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Custom dance floor decals make excellent Bar/Bat Mitzvah decorations. Our decals are often used not only to decorate venue floors, but also as signing boards in lieu of a guestbook, photo booth backdrops, and even as a centerpiece to the DJ Facade/Booth!

12973112_10153387246130443_7043524124164344243_o

We offer custom  decals ranging from 12 to 72 inches wide or tall. Each of the sizes can either be ordered cropped (we remove the background, giving you a contour cutout of just the subject), or uncropped (the image is left as is, and printed poster-style).

The dance floor decals start at $500.00 and go up depending on size. We can also create smaller decal stickers for furniture or favors.  

Requires at least 2 hours of installation time.

12961707_10153387207460443_2141625430215261820_n

Why settle for a plain looking dance floor or DJ Booth when we can help tie it into your party theme?  Whether you are looking for a logo or want to create a custom floor to look like a basketball court, ice hockey rink, baseball diamond, or game board, we can help!  We can even wrap the venues dance floor to an all white dance floor without bringing an entire dance floor in.  Our dance floor vinyl decals are slip-resistent for the safety of your guests, and scuff-resistent to last throughout your party.  Includes custom cut vinyl, installation, and removal.

Furniture Decals for Personalized Customization

Do you not like the mirrors or artwork in your banquet room?

Take that mirror that you don’t like at your venue and slap a sticker on it to add to the customization!

The Tonight Show with Jesse Kohn

photo (17)

Trying to come up with the perfect theme for your Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Ever think about hosting your own late night talk show like the Jimmy Fallon  Tonight Show? Probably not, but at AJH Entertainment, we had the honor of attending “The Tonight Show with Jesse Kohn”, and he was in character as his own version of Jimmy all evening.

To start off the show, Jimmy… (I mean Jesse) entered through the infamous blue curtains with a standing ovation. Jesse’s Bar Mitzvah Emcee, Mr. Adam J. also went into character as the shows audience coordinator, prepping all of the Kohn’s guests’ for a live broadcasting, and they were on in 5….4…3…2…1…”Hey Hey Hey Hey…..Ladies and gentlemen, this is The Tonight Show, with your host… Mr. Jesse Kohnnnnnnn!” AJH had the pleasure of entertaining for the Kohn’s for their previous mitzvahs, all of which included our amazing talents, both Emcee Alex and Emcee Freddy.

Then, out of the curtains, comes your guest of honor himself, Jesse, whom came up with his own monologue to begin his very own show. In the midst of the monologue, from out of nowhere…arrives his good friend # the Panda.

In case you don’t know who Hashtag the Panda is, this is him.

He thanked each person, just as Jimmy Fallon presents his Thank You Notes, with the background music to follow each candle. This was not your average candle lighting, because we were live on air the entire time.

Jesse’s Bar Mitzvah took place at High Point Solutions Stadium, at Rutger’s University, where he was live on EVERY screen, even in the bathrooms! As you are washing your hands, you are watching Jesse on the monitors in the mirror! He was even on the giant scoreboard screen!  Jesse and his mom Sue put in a lot of effort to make sure every detail was perfect! AJH Entertainment and Impressions Photo and Video took on event planning roles, where photos and videos of Jesse in his suit and tie were spot on, just like Jimmy Fallon. Video clips included Jesse acting out different monologues, which looped on the screens all night, keeping all of his guests’ entertained.

Other extra entertainment included a custom built “DRINKO” board for cocktail hour, another favorite game that celebrities play with Jimmy on his show. You might have seen this clip recently… photo (14)

Custom centerpieces were done by mom herself, and photo booth variations of step & repeat, and our strolling paparazzi photo booth captured great candids!

Alex & Jared crowd surf at Radisson Hotel!

What’s different about this picture? When guests’s walked into the room for Alex & Jared’s Bnai Mitzvah, they actually felt like they were at home with these two. We loved the idea of covering up the artwork at the venue, and incorporating Alex & Jared into the frame, it was picture perfect!

AJH Photo booth FAQ’s

While in the midst of planning your special event, you may be wondering what else? One of the most popular party extras is a Photo booth. Great for any event type, a photo booth can also be the answer to some of the final touches you may be seeking. If you are stumped on whether or not to provide your guests’ with favors, or what the favor should be, a Photo booth picture and frame is the answer! One thing your guests’ will want, is pictures of themselves. You are providing your guests’ with novelty entertainment, that includes unlimited pictures for 4 hours of fun. Eliminate your time and stress wondering what you should do for favors, cut out the over priced costs of favors, and reserve a photo booth instead!

How does reserving a booth benefit the Guest/s Of Honor?

By reserving a photo booth, you as the host will also receive a digital copy of all of your images. The most thrilling part about planning a special event, is getting to  look at the images afterwards! The feedback of your guests’ reactions through photo  is what lets you know that your guests’ had the time of their life. You will be very surprised to see the shyest of your friends and family jump in the photo booth, because a novelty item such as this gives all of your guests’ the chance to have fun together. Additionally, your event is also an opportunity for your  guests’ to meet one another for the first time. Look at the photo booth as the perfect “ice breaker”. A photo booth might not be something you feel is your style, but it may be perfect for your guests!

How will your guests’ know what to do?

Although photo booths are very trendy, there will be guests’ at your event that have no idea what this thing is! Our photo booth attendant’s responsibility is to interact with your guests, explain the operation of the booth, and encourage guests’ to want to  try it, not just walk by it! Our AJH photo booth attendants are trained in customer service satisfaction, you will not see our staff sitting at your event behind the prop table.

Does the booth take away from your event?

The only time our photo booth attendant is not standing beside the booth is during your formalities, in which we let guests’ know that the booth will open again after your speeches, toasts, candle lighting, montage, special dances, cake-cutting, etc. We feel it is extremely important to make sure all eyes are on the GOH during their event. You have one chance to plan this special day in which you worked SO hard for, and none of your guests’ should miss out on these key moments.

Our AJH Photo booth package includes unlimited pictures throughout your affair, with guests choice of black & white, or color prints, and our customized prop box. Add frames as favors to any package, and spare yourself one less thing to worry about. Pair any of our booths with a scrapbook, and make your event an everlasting experience, full of candids you cannot take on your own! Contact us at 732.446.1329 to find out about our Winter Pricing!

AJH Celebration Showcase

Mark your calendars!!! AJH Entertainment will be hosting an RSVP’d  Celebration Showcase & Performance at American Hotel on January 22nd. Please make reservations with Jim or Joy at American Hotel. 

Emcee Adam J.  had the privilege of hosting Grace’s Bat Mitzvah at The American Hotel of Freehold, NJ on this past Saturday afternoon.  Grace’s event took place in the hotel’s “Majestic Room“, which is their grand ballroom, and is suitable for any event type. You may have visited the hotel for their Sunday Brunch. If not, we highly recommend it!

10685517_10152341093530443_3343869224988391375_nIf you are in search of a venue that is different from all of the rest, then The American Hotel is the right choice for you and your family. Many clients ask us: “How can you make an afternoon event feel like an evening event?” Our answer is actually quite simple- “Do amazing events, every event, no matter where; during whatever time of dayMost importantly, know your venues floor plans.” At American Hotel, your afternoon event feels as if you are partying in the evening. As we all know, hosting an event in the afternoon verses in the evening, must be put into consideration when planning your event.

AJH Quick Tip: Choosing a venue that has a lot of sunlight during an afternoon event must be taken into consideration if you are looking to achieve that “nightlife” feel. A “nightlife” event requires a dark atmosphere to fully grasp this type of theme. By choosing a room without the open window concept, you will have more options for enhancements such as “Intelligent Lighting” and “Room Uplighting” that drastically change the venue’s room.

We look forward to seeing you at our Celebration Showcase!- Don’t Miss a Beat!

October Awareness & Events

10626719_10152341098545443_540355546957050689_nAs many of you know, October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Miceli family supported their survivor, and all survivors by incorporating “pink props” in their giveaway package.  A Bar or Bat Mitzvah giveaway package can be customized to enhance any theme, color, and or hobby that the guest of honor prefers.  Additional support for breast cancer awareness was displayed in the Miceli’s family’ dessert medley, which were pink chocolate covered oreos’. So Delicious!

Join us in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness!

Point Pleasant, NJ – The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Join us October 19, 2014 for the most powerful breast cancer awareness event in New Jersey, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Point Pleasant Beach. Last year alone, supporters raised $68 million nationwide to help the American Cancer Society save lives and this year you have the opportunity to join the fight and have fun doing it. Registration begins at 8AM and the walk at 10AM.

Before and after the 5k walk, join AJH Entertainment in the Arnold Avenue parking lot for a fun-filled celebration including keynote speakers, talented DJs Dancers & MCs and an up-lifting dance party to bring everyone together for one remarkable cause.  Last year over 20,000 participants walked, sang & danced together in a sea of pink to raise money, bring awareness and hopefully one day put an end to breast cancer once and for all.

This year, let’s raise the roof (and of course the funds) together at a powerful and inspiring event to honor those who have battled breast cancer, spread the word about what we can do to help prevent it, and raise money to find cures and support programs and services for those facing the disease.

For more information about October 19th’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event in Point Pleasant Beach please contact Adam at 732-446-1329 or check out http://www.makingstrideswalk.org/pointpleasant.

AJH Scavenger Hunt

A party is not a party unless everyone at your event is involved in the Entertainment. Besides the usual “Coke & Pepsi“, which is just for kids, AJH has had much success playing the game “Scavenger Hunt”. This game incorporates both kids and adults, team building, fast paced thinking, and of course challenge!

10511145_10152143795930443_7809243396400279887_n

So how does it work? We have all of your guests grab a chair and bring them  onto the center of the dance floor, placing every other chair the opposite way of one other. Everyone takes a seat (boys and girls), and your Emcee will briefly explain the way the game works, while firing off the questions! Here you can see a group of boy and girls seated holding different items. You and your friends will be asked to find different things throughout your venue, and depending on the type of venue you select, this game can get VERY interesting!

Here we are hosting Eli’s Bar Mitzvah at the beautiful Dolce of Basking Ridge , NJ.

Eli's shoe

For instance, your Emcee may ask all of your guests to find him a “men’s size 10 shoe”. The adults at your event often enjoy providing the kids with these random props, because it makes for a good laugh and helps break the ice.

Eli party

As the Emcee continues to challenge your guests’, whoever doesn’t make it back to their seat in time, loses their seat, and the guest count on the game begins to decrease. As the chairs begin to vanish, the things you need to find become more difficult! When it gets down to the wire, all of your guests’ will be on their feet cheering for the final two! Whether you prefer dancing or playing games, AJH Entertainment will keep all of your guests on their toes!
