Yes, they are still technically newlyweds as only officially tying the knot last year after being together for nearly 30 years. Shannon Tweed wore an elegant gown designed by Badgley Mischka.

Nojiri is the youngest entrepreneur to take his company ” TAKE and GIVE NEEDS (T&G) ” publicly traded in Japan in 2001. Nowadays, his company produces 17,000 weddings a year.

The stunning decor floral arrangements of thousands of brightly colored wild orchards adorned the crystal chandeliers. The chandeliers were flown in from Las Vegas specifically for the event. This over the top ultra-glamorous style is what Yoshi Nojiri is famously known for.

Dom Perignon champagne was freely flowing and the catering was provided by Sugar Beach Events of Hawaii.

Guests were entertained with an impromptu concert where Gene and his family jumped on stage with the band to jam together. Gene played the bass while his son and daughter sang classic rock standards and jazz tunes. The family said this was a first time they did this sort of thing together.
