Married July 19, 2014

He had it all set up to surprise her at the front door, down on one knee with the ring in his hand so that right when she opened the door, her life would change forever. Instead, Maddison went out the garage and ruined the surprise that he had planned.  She was still surprised with the ring and excitedly said ‘yes.’

The first thing the couple planned was to get the venue set. As an outdoorsy couple they knew that the venue had to be outside. Upon visiting East Lake Ranch they knew that it was the perfect venue for their wedding. Ross and Maddison loved the set up and how beautiful everything was there.

For the design, Maddison was drawn to simple yet elegant, so she went for design elements with a shabby chic look. The venue didn’t need a lot of floral decorations, just a little pop of color, and they chose the color coral. Maddison thought that the coral would pop beautifully with all of the green and it did exactly that.

Maddison asked her uncle build the Arch for her and Ross, feeling that the ceremony sight just needed something a little extra.  Then her cousins Michele and Dawn took off with all of the decorations for the Arch and made it absolutely beautiful.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-07-19-maddi--ross The boys were in tan since with the bridesmaids in coral, not much more color was needed. For her dress she knew she wanted something different and right when she tried on the Maggie Sottero dress, she knew that it was the dress for her!

After the couple found the venue, and Maddison found her dress, everything else just came together. Pinterest was an inspiration for some of their ideas but all the decorations really came from Maddison’s cousins who came up with the decorations for the wedding, Michele and Dawn.

All of their vendors were so professional and helped the couple determine what they wanted by the first meeting; they never had to make any other appointments.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-07-19-maddi--ross Ross and Maddison made sure to add some fun elements as well, such as a cigar bar that was hosted by a family friend, and silly photos that captured the couple’s fun sides that were taken by Kori and Jared.
