I’m busting the blog out of retirement for this super-epic wedding in Atascadero!  

Pacific northwest residents, Hannah and Leif, were married at their destination wedding a few weeks ago at the beautiful Central Coast wedding venue, Grace Maralyn Estates and Gardens.  (https://www.thegracemaralyn.com) 
Staff did an exquisite job, along with a stellar floral job done by Nina, with By Request- I’ve never seen a head table arrangement presented so beautifully.  It reminded me of a meadow of goodness (www.ByRequest.us).
Hair/make-up done by the only make-up artist I will ever recommend from here on out, Rhonda Johnson!  (https://bridalmakeupandhair.com). Honestly, I’ve never ever, in over 550 weddings, seen a bride’s make-up and hair (!) last perfectly through a windy, Central Coast day.  
The wedding was held on what would’ve been Hannah’s beloved father’s birthday, April 1st.  Her dear father’s spirit was present with us throughout the day, blessing this sacred nuptial.  
As was present too, joy abounded!  Giggles from a keto man meets a baker woman by ways of an introduction that took her brother months to make!  A common love of nature, rock climbing, bike-riding, skiing and archery.  
I gleamed from their cute wedding website FAQ page:  
April Fools Day, is this a joke?  
Answer:  Show up and find out!” 
…to the super-funny sign that greeted people when they walked in: 
April Fools!  
But since you’re already here and all dressed up….
I hear there’s free food inside” !!
You just can’t help but love these two!
The only wedding I’ve EVER been to that ran completely on schedule!  Well done!  🙂
A big thank you to photo partners, Tom and Jose Nicdao!
Congratulations to Hannah and Leif!
