From the moment we met, I knew Joanna, Ljay and I all clicked! Our first consultation meeting was like getting coffee with friends. They are some of the sweetest people with such a heart for the Lord! In fact, growing up they both were pastor’s kids (PKs, if you will) and have stayed true to their faith into adulthood. Both grew up in the same community, but didn’t hit it off romantically until 3 years ago when they both went on the same missions trip to the Philippines. It’s all about God’s perfect timing, and this was their time to finally join as a couple. Their wedding was nothing short of beautiful! Nestldown, hidden in the Santa Cruz mountains with towering Redwood trees, is always a dream. All the details that went into it all came together into a beautiful reception. Apis Floral worked wonders with the flowers and Joanna outdid herself with her DIY calligraphy skills! All 165 names on each place setting and the lovely seating chart were handwritten by the lovely bride and made quite the statement. It really was a special day and I could tell by all the family and friends who surrounded them that Joanna and Ljay are very adored. Sending my best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. Madanes!
