Tommy & Ivana were planning a little weekend getaway to one of their places, The Madonna Inn here in the heart of San Luis Obispo, California. They were coming down to figure out a couple of details for their upcoming winter wedding. Yes, when you know, you know!! So you book your wedding even before the ring is on her finger!! Their ceremony is going to be at The Secret Garden. And they wanted to decide which direction they wanted their ceremony to be focused. This ended up being the perfect opportunity for Tommy to officially ask Ivana to be his forever best friend. It was a beautiful proposal and her reaction was priceless!!

If you’ve never been to the iconic Madonna Inn, it is a novelty hotel. Which means each room has a unique theme.

See this excerpt from their website:

One hundred ten unique rooms now exist, each decorated differently to suit many individual tastes…rock rooms, waterfall showers, rock fireplaces, European fixtures, and fine furnishings to name a few.

The Madonna Inn sits on over 1,000 acres and the large rocks used in the construction came from these surrounding acres. Some of the larger rocks weigh in excess of 200 tons each.

Several woodcarvers were brought in for the specialty work of hand carving the doors, beams, railings, and the many other carved adornments you see here at the Madonna Inn.

We hope you, your families and friends will enjoy our facilities and that you will continue to do so for many years to come.

A while ago, these two ventured to her favorite jeweler, Bario Neal, and custom-designed her engagement ring. Guys, this ring is insanely gorgeous and unlike anything I have ever seen!!
