Madeleine and Caleb dated for five years, seven months, and thirty days before they tied the knot—not that Madeleine was counting! The pair met as freshmen in high school, where they were friends long before they began dating. “Caleb started a band and invited me to play keyboard, but he really just wanted an excuse to get to know me,” Madeleine recalls.
For their wedding, Madeleine and Caleb wanted something sophisticated and timeless. “My biggest inspiration came from my travels across Europe—especially the U.K. and France,” the bride explains. Scarritt Bennett had the classic elegance Madeleine desired for the ceremony, and The Cordelle brought a dose of charm and style to the reception.
Seeing her groom waiting at the end of the aisle was one of Madeleine’s most cherished memories: “The best part was the look on Caleb’s face! It was the happiest I had ever seen him.”
“Prepare well, but then allow yourself to let go once the day arrives. Any issues that come up are for someone else to take care of. You want to be able to enjoy every moment!”
