how you met:

Clinton and Madison met at an Alabama game in Tuscaloosa. It is pretty amazing because he is a hardcore Auburn fan and an Auburn grad. Madison, on the other hand, went to Alabama and luckily does not take football as seriously as Clinton. She happened to be very close to Clinton’s high school friends, and they introduced them. When Clinton and Madison met, they did not exchange numbers, but little did they know their paths would cross again. They were both living in Birmingham at the time and ran into each other one night, and she told him, “You should take me on a date.” He responded with, “I think I should.” The rest is history.

the wedding dress:

Madison’s wedding dress was truly a dream come true. She shopped around several amazing dress shops in Birmingham, but nothing stood out to her like Heidi Elnora Atelier. The day she went to find the dress, she had her mom, Clinton’s mom, her grandma and her sweet maid of honor. Mary, her maid of honor, is the one that found the dress and asked Madison to try it on. As soon as she put the Aster Mae dress on, the two were a match made in heaven. She was the first bride to ever wear this particular Heidi gown, and it was truly a dream and honor. Heidi and her team made Madison feel like a true princess. Madison’s dress was made from scratch locally in the Birmingham shop.
