Madison & Chris’ Wedding At The Celebration Farm In Iowa City, IA

Soon To Be Essential

When Chris and Madison met online in 2017 it didn’t take long for them to connect. Chris was smitten on the first date when Madison made him sniff roughly 100 different essential oils from her collection. When Madison saw how he pretended to care and learn about each oil, she knew she had found a keeper.

Key To My Heart

Chris knew it was important for both of their families to be involved when he planned his proposal to Madison. When his family came into town one evening for his brothers’ dental school event, he seized the opportunity. Before dinner at their favorite spot, Chis’ Mom got out locks for each of her kids’ and their significant others to put on the Iowa bridge. Chris and Madison went first, and as she was putting the lock on the bridge, Chris got down on one knee! He had her family secretly there waiting so both families could all eat dinner together with the newly engaged couple.
