Madison and Blake
In the fall of 2013 Blake and I met at school. He was a junior working on getting into pharmacy school and I was a sophomore working on a music therapy degree. We quickly became best friends and love followed shortly after. About five years later on a trip to Orlando, Blake took me completely by surprise by proposing to me at the Canada pavilion in Epcot. I thought that was the best day of my life. And it was, until my wedding day topped it.
Blake and I didn't know much about what we wanted in a wedding when it came to specifics, but we knew we wanted to have fun. We wanted to celebrate our love with a party that our guests and family could enjoy stress free.
I have always had a changing sense of style throughout my life, but one constant has always been a love of old Hollywood glamour. I have always love Hayley Paige's dresses from my years (and years and years) of watching say yes to the dress! I'd specifically pinned the West Gown a few years prior to the wedding, but never expected that it would be mine. I stumbled upon a trunk show just after Blake proposed. It was my first time shopping for wedding dresses. I spotted the West gown from the window when walking in and I was sold. Although the Andi gown was a strong contender! I could not have made a better choice. Not only was my wedding day the most fun day of my life, but it was the most beautiful I have ever felt.
