Madison and Marcus chose the First Christian Church in Iola, Kansas to get married! Their wedding featured various shades of violet and lavender, pale yellow, and light grey for a spring palette.

Q: Why did you choose this place to get married?
“Our faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is Number One in our relationship, so my husband and I both knew we wanted to get married in a church. We also wanted to get married in Iola, Kansas, as that would be the easiest location for most of our guests-so we decided on the First Christian Church there which is beautiful and was very accommodating! Our ceremony and reception were both at this one venue.”
Q: Did you have a particular theme?
“Our theme was overall vintage, with lots of lace, butterflies, (even some living!-We did a butterfly release after the ceremony), dainty flowers, etc.”
Q: Tell us the best part of your big day!
“The best and most memorable part of the day was walking down the aisle with my dad, heading toward my groom, and seeing his reaction when he saw me. It was absolutely perfect and was the best moment of my life.”
Q: Why did you choose Azazie for your bridesmaids?
“My bridesmaids were all very different sizes and shapes, and so I chose Azazie because we could get dresses made just to fit my girls exactly! There are sooooo many awesome dresses to choose from at Azazie and I LOVED that I could order sample swatches and sample dresses to see ahead of time! It really helped make the decision making process very smooth and easy!”
Q: Did you enjoy planning the wedding?
“I did enjoy the wedding planning process! While it was very stressful at times, I am a very crafty person so I had a blast DIY-ing many of the decorations for our Big Day! Also, because I knew I’d be marrying the man of my dreams, I was beyond excited! It had been a long time coming! Now that we have been married for a little over a year, I can honestly say, being married to him is the greatest part of my life, and I could not have pictured a more perfect wedding uniting the two of us together in God’s house!”
Q: Describe your wedding in one word.
“Perfect. Unique. God-honoring! Beautiful. One word does not do our wedding justice!”
Q: How did you meet your husband?
“My husband and I met when he interviewed me for a job! We both agree that it was love at first sight, and the sparks were flying from the first handshake at the beginning of the interview! He became my boss, but we knew that I wouldn’t be working there for very long, as a relationship was certainly blossoming! We have been inseparable ever since! He still manages the privately owned business where we met, and I’m currently a graduate student about to graduate with my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. We will be moving next year for my PhD program, and he will soon be finishing up his MBA. We also compete in fitness/bodybuilding competitions together, and have many of the same interests!”
