MADISON & KAMAR
Tell Their Story
HOW WE MET
Kamar and I met in highschool in our freshman year. Even though I was unable to date in highschool, kamar waited for me and continued to pursue me. After highschool, kamar and I began dating and attended church together as we cultivated our relationship.
THE PROPOSAL Kamar plotted with my best friend Athena and surprised me on my girls trip in Sedona, Arizona. I climbed cathedral rock and was expecting to see the amazing view. Instead, kamar was waiting for me at the very top and pulled me up. I was so surprised and when he got down on one knee, I was even more shocked. It was truly a memory for a lifetime.
THE WEDDING I wanted sage and green to be the main theme for our flowers. My bridesmaids had sage dresses and the groomsmen had grey suits. I love pampas grass and I wanted to incorporate it somehow so I decided to add cream pampas in the decor and in my bridal bouquet. We decided to have our wedding at the Belamour located in the heights. We decided to get married so close to Christmas because it is my favorite time of year. We had a small ceremony of 50 people because we wanted close family and friends to be present with us. We didn’t want a party reception so we decided to go to a restaurant with everyone who attended. It was the sweetest day and everything that was simple about it made it even more perfect.
ADVICE FOR THE NEWLY ENGAGED Make sure the wedding of your dreams fits what you want and not what others are expecting of you! If you want a small wedding, go for it! It’s easier to put together. I enjoyed the small crowd and the fact that our wedding didn’t go past 4 hours. My husband and I were able to relax after the reception lunch and truly appreciate the day.
