Everything came up roses for Madison and Shay. A mutual friend thought they would be perfect for each other and introduced them at a Halloween party, which led to a romantic proposal and a beautiful floral-themed wedding.
When the couple decided to move in together, Shay spent his spare time in the garage building furniture for their new home. One night, Shay showed Madison his final project: a beautiful desk. “I remember touching the wood and thinking how this desk would probably be in our family forever,” says Madison. She was so impressed with the workmanship that at first she didn’t notice the little blue box sitting in the drawer. When she realized what was happening, Shay was down on one knee.
The Big Day
Madison didn’t have a specific theme in mind, but wanted their wedding to feel romantic and intimate despite their guest list of 155. A champagne rosette tablecloth sparked inspiration, and the floral motif carried on throughout the Empire Ballroom in shades of blush and pink. An ivory and pink candy bar painstakingly put together by Madison and her bridesmaids finished the look.
Madison’s favourite moment was walking down the aisle past all her friends and family, while Shay fondly remembers reciting their vows with tears and laughter. “There was just so much happiness in the room, it couldn’t have been a more perfect moment.”

Advice from the Newlyweds
“It’s okay for your decor to change and evolve as you plan, but try to have a general idea of what you want the room to feel like before you start to make big purchases and commitments.”
Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married
“Relaxing together and getting back to normal life after a big year of planning! We’re excited to be moving in to a new house sometime next year and maybe start thinking about babies after that!”
