It all started in 2015 when Madison had moved to Florence, Kentucky.  She didn’t know anyone and decided to join a dating website in hopes to branch out and meet new people. Two weeks into this reluctant online saga, she received a message and it was from a man named Grant.  After getting to know each other for a little while, they had their first date which consisted of frozen pizza and cozily watching the movie Elf at Madison’s apartment. Since that day, they have built many memories of love and laugther.

Happily Fast forward two years later to 2017, Grant brought Madison on their annual trip to The Cincinnati Zoo to enjoy the Christmas lights. As part of their tradition, Madison and Grant take a picture in the ‘Candy Cane Forrest.’ Grant decided to do something a little different that year, and after taking their picture he dropped down on one knee and asked for Madison’s hand in marriage. Madison was so surprised as she said yes! After the zoo, he surprised her by taking her out to a planned rooftop dinner with both of their parents.

Madison and Grant are truly perfect compliments of one another and are very best friends. They love to travel and try new things, which is one of the reasons why they decided to have a destination wedding in Florida. 

On the Opal Sands Resorts’ Event Lawn surrounded by friends and family,  the wedding party walked down the aisle to the tropical tune of a steel drum band where they witnessed Madison and Grant dedicate their lives to one another.  The bridesmaids wore emerald green gowns, the groomsmen in tan suits with no ties; brought together by stunning bouquets of baby pineapples and tropical flowers.

It was a delight to see how happy Madison and Grant were on their wedding day, along with their guests as they bonded together as one big family.

Congratulations on your Marriage Madison + Grant <3 !
