Hawaii Destination Wedding ~ Sullivan Estate

February 26, 2015

Traveling from California, Don and Julie dreamt of their wedding taking place on the fabled North Shore of Oahu. When their original location didn’t work out, their phenomenal wedding planner, Hawaii Weddings by Tori Rogers, LLC went to work to secure The Sullivan Estate.  Originally built in 1962 by the founder of local company Foodland, this private estate is famous for hosting Elvis Presley and is now a wellness and fitness spa center. It offers some of the best views of the North Shore and is easily accessible from the main road.

We just LOVED every aspect of their wedding day from their signature drink of… and…. to the “perfect” matches. To all the bridesmaids dresses the color of the rainbow it was a perfect afternoon for a North Shore wedding.  With the ceremony site over looking Mokulea to the reception hosted on the private lani every detail was thought out.

Julie + Don didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony so we decided that we’d surprise her dad.

I can’t tell you how fabulous I thought the matches are! They even picked a color for the box that matched their color scheme perfectly.

O.K. I’ll admit it, we did try the signature cocktail. But the virgin version. Again picking up the color palette of the wedding was just genius!

Our wedding was perfect. Jeanne Marie you were such a delight. You captured so many incredible moments. We were overjoyed to have you as our photographer. You definitely have an eye for the scenic backgrounds. We couldn’t have been more pleased with you and our pictures will be forever cherished. I would recommend you in a heartbeat.
