Madyson + Reed

How did you meet?

By chance at a bar in Kansas City that neither of us wanted to be at! I was there with my future maid-of-honor and he was there with his future best man. I walked up and made the first move! GO GIRL POWER!

When did you know they were the one?

When our conversations could be deep for hours! And when I went to his home town with him to meet family and friends. It all seemed perfect!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His patience, intelligence, and supportiveness

Who proposed and how?

Reed proposed in Sedona, AZ on a Jeep tour overlooking the red clay rock cliffs and mountains.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I fell in love with my MWL dress at Bride KC in Kansas City. It was actually the first dress I tried on, and nothing could beat it. #Archie!!!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

Post-ceremony & post-dinner. Running around the city with only our photographers (@thehappers) who are a husband/wife duo and the coolest couple we know. I could’ve done that all night and never set foot in the reception!

What were your favourite details? 

The dress (of course) – how it felt made for me.
The perfect little flowers on our VEGAN cake (yes, I know, vegan!)
My H&MU team finding the most perfect lipstick shade, and giving me the entire tube (name was ‘Coffee & Cigarettes’ – a vibe that totally fits me!)

What advice would you tell other brides?

Get a wedding planner. Our planner – Meranda – was my best friend for 10 months. She made everything so easy, made Reed & I feel special, and I had not a care in the world on my wedding day thanks to her!
Also – DO WHAT YOU WANT NOT WHAT’S TRADITIONAL! We skipped so many ‘traditions’ because in our opinion – they’re lame, expensive, and something no one remembers. We made our wedding day a party – for us and our guests. Everyone had a blast.

Any standout vendors?
