Madison and Dale | Subiaco Abbey | Central Arkansas Photographer


We met Madison and Dale through Claudia's college roommate, Madeline, and we are so glad that we did. They are so in love and so nice to everyone they meet! Check out their engagement shoot from December 2016!

Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous. I know we say that a lot, but you'll see. Subiaco Abbey has been a dream location for us, so paired with the colors, florals, and her dress... you guys, there are no words to do it justice. It was breathtaking.

We love their story (stolen from their wedding website): "Madison and Dale's story starts almost ten years ago, January 2008, when they attended the birthday party of Madison's best friend (the maid of honor). It was freezing and somehow they found themselves cuddled under a blanket next to their classmates surrounding a bonfire. They slowly became great friends throughout junior high and high school, but lost touch after graduation. Dale stayed in Arkansas to attend Arkansas Tech University, while Madison moved to Manhattan, Kansas to play golf at Kansas State. After almost three years of not speaking, Dale finds Madison's number and sends a text. It has been nothing but love and happiness ever since!"

It's so obvious how much they care for each other and their families and friends. Half of our photos are of people hugging, crying, and Dale sneaking glances at Madison. We were just so honored to get to capture it all! 

We worked with Whorton Films throughout the day and their teaser video made us cry. Watch it before you look at these photos! We hope it gives you an emotional tug before you scroll through their day. :)
