That time Daryl Hannah and Neil Young got married

Did you know that Canadian music icon Neil Young and American mermaid-patch-eyed-movie-psychopath icon Daryl Hannah have been dating since 2014? If not, you'll raise an eyebrow over the fact that all points lead to the fact that the pair recently tied the knot.

From The Guardian:

The couple reportedly wed on Saturday in Atascadero, after a ceremony on Young's yacht near the San Juan islands.

The guitarist Mark Miller appeared to confirm the news on Facebook when he congratulated the couple. He later clarified that he had not attended the ceremony. "I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page," Miller said.

The administrator of Young's blog also congratulated the pair, and referred to comments from attendees, who described the event as "a shindig".

Hannah posted a cryptic image to her Instagram account the following day. She captioned the picture of an owl: "Someone's watching over us … love and only love."

No one, according to The Guardian, was watching over Young's wife of over three decades, Pegi Young, when he divorced her shortly before his relationship with Hannah became a thing. That said, no one knows the truth behind Pegi and Neil breaking up, save them, their lawyers and very likely, Daryl Hannah.

It's been four years since the divorce–four years that Hannah and Young have been together as a couple. Hopefully, in a world as shitty as this one has been of late, the newlyweds and Pegi, as she pursues a better world through her music, philanthropy and environmentalist efforts, have all found some small measure of happiness.
