Hannah Macko and Kristin Peoples married June 4, 2022.

“We wanted to incorporate some of the better things in life—food and travel!—to make the day a bit more personal,” says Hannah Macko of her and Kristin Peoples’ June 4, 2022, wedding at Retreat 21. The brides made intentional choices in the menu to delight the taste buds, and they named guest tables after places they’d traveled together (Paros, Greece; Patagonia, South America; Plitvicka Jezera, Croatia; Garibaldi Lake, Canada; and Barcelona, Spain) instead of using numbers. Still, Hannah says, the most memorable part of the day was “being surrounded by our closest family and friends.”
