Luau at Lowell Observatory catered by Thornager’s {Flagstaff Event Photography}

We had the pleasure of being invited by Thornager’s to photograph the Trustee’s dinner at Lowell Observatory. Thornager’s always does a fabulous job with their events and this luau did not disappoint. Karen from Thornager’s enlisted Glamorous Occasions and KD Event Designs for a little extra style and design help. Dana from Glamorous Occasions put together beautiful tropical flower centerpieces with plumeria flown in from Hawaii that morning. Kim from KD Event Designs brought the theme together with the bright colored table clothes and custom paper goods. The guests were greeted with colorful lei’s and a signature Hawaiian cocktail. Thornager’s prepared a delicious island inspired meal with entrees including fresh mahi mahi with a macadamia nut crust, huli huli chicken, and soy marinated grilled tofu. They topped the dinner off with tropical sorbet and Hawaiian lilikoi cookies, yum!

We even got in the Hawaiian spirit for the party!  Thank you to Tim from Thornager’s for the fun photo!
