“Have a happy life and share your happiness with others. Happiness is difficult to give away and it keeps coming back to you”
These hallowed words were memorialized by Maddi’s late grandfather and revisited by her brother on the happiest day of her life. These words are ones that we all can live by each and everyday of our own lives.
With the quiet murmur of a waterfall and surrounded by their family and friends, Maddi and Dalton said “I do” on May 20th at the Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls. The venue, located in Spring Branch, is a natural retreat deep in Texas Hill Country. Will captivating waterfalls and spectacular views, Maddi and Dalton couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location for their wedding.
Her stunning dress was a work of art as it hung in a mirrored room and completely breathtaking once Maddi put it on. Her bridesmaids chanted her name and cheered when they finally saw her for the first time!
Their love of their two dogs was apparent as they both made an appearance - as a cake topper! Since they love being outdoors and spending time with their pups, it only made sense.
Maddi, Dalton, and their guests were tearing up the dance floor well into the evening. The bride and groom left their sweet celebration by charging through a sea of sparklers!
The Proposal: Maddi told us: "A typical weekday, we decided to have a date night. We took the dogs to a lake nearby and had a picnic. After munching a bit and drinking some wine, we got up to throw the ball for the dogs. He started getting all mushy, saying a bunch of sweet things. I immediately got awkward, feeling like I need to say a bunch of sweet things (I may have interrupted him a bit to get in a few niceties). But then he got down on one knee. He was disappointed (but not surprised) that I responded by putting my hands on my hips in an "are you joking?" manner instead of doing the typical hands cover the mouth in shock move. Disclaimer, he has definitely joked about proposing before! Anyhoo, I realized he was for real, so of course I said yes. We hug and kiss, then I heard screaming from behind some far away bushes. He enlisted Kayla Patterson and a couple other close friends to stake us out and take pictures of the whole thing. They came running over with the camera and some champagne. It was pretty awesome!"
Maddi + Dalton, Thank you for allowing us to share your day with you! The laughter and jovial nature of all your friends and family was a heartwarming experience and one that we’ll never forget!
