The Meeting

Madison first met Brandon in high school—she was a freshman and he was a senior. Their first date was at Olive Garden on November 11, 2014.

DSC_5263The Moment

We knew we wanted to get married about 5-6 months into our relationship when Brandon got me a promise ring.

The Proposal

Brandon and I were moving from Illinois tounnamed Arizona and we decided to make our move into a road trip. We stopped in Colorado to visit my uncle, and he took me to a waterfall on a hike. He took me into the middle of the stream and it was there that he got down on one knee with so much confidence and asked me to marry him.


The Wedding DayDSC_5915.JPG

My favorite part of the wedding day was just spending it with him…dancing with my friends and family AND just so many photos! Oh yeah, and my dog!

The Venue

I fell in love with The Haight the first minute I saw it and I knew that everything else would fall together.








The Dress & TuxDSC_4019

Brandon’s stuff we got from Kohls. My dress was a limited Sherri Hill prom dress that began as just plain white, but I had a complete redesign done to it that I overall chose the design for. The redesign was done bGemma out here in Arizona.



The Advice

Make sure to get a GOOD photographer and videographer for the wedding (even if it’s just a friend). These photos will mean more to you than you know.
