Domini+Andrew’s Madonna Inn Wedding at the Secret Garden
What an excellent wedding weekend! The celebration brought folks from all over the place to the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, Ca ~ but first, the rehearsal dinner in Avila!
The tables were set at the Avila Lighthouse Suites, where the weather and the view could not have been more incredible. Once the sun dipped behind the hills in the backdrop, the crew ventured to the beach for some fun family photos…and eventually just a few sweet pictures of the soon-to-be-weds!
And just a few short hours later, it was wedding day! It was a beautiful event ~ I found the girls prepping in the spacious Austrian Suite! With the dress suspended in the middle of the room it was hard to look anywhere else but up!
I hiked around the property checking in on the busy groups, the guys played basketball (in their suits!) while the girls put the finishing touches on their hair & makeup.
The wedding took place just as the sun was dipping behind the hill: Cerro San Luis (often referred to as ‘Madonna Mountain’) ~ where the beautiful couple said their vows in the Secret Garden 🙂
After the ceremony ~ Domini & Andrew took a nice little stroll up the hill; to watch the sunset on San Luis Obispo on their wedding day!…but the night was just beginning. Down in the Venetian Room the wedding party was introduced to the crowd, and the festivities continued late into the night. The Dueling Pianos belted out tunes as the crowd sang and danced in unison, with the exception of the Michael Jackson dance off and the booty shake (brought to you by Sir Mix-a-lot).
This wedding was unforgettable! Congrats to Domini + Andrew, I’m hoping these photos commemorate the occasion and your love beautifully!
