Madelyn + Doug


It's a little blurry, like some of my college weekends - but I first met Maddie at the University of Portland. Maddie and I became friends through a business group on campus. Her infectious laugh and smile brighten up any room, which I loved. She visited me while studying abroad where some of the funniest memories were made. Over the years our friendship circles kept us in contact so when Maddie reached out to me to help plan her wedding, I was over the moon. 

Doug and Maddie met through their local kickball league and after years of dating, he popped the question. This fall we dove head first into planning their January wedding. They selected the University of Portland to say "I do" followed by a reception at District East. The ceremony was personal and sweet as they were back on campus as a node to Maddie's college years. After the ceremony, guests made their way downtown and were welcomed into a space that was ready for an all out celebration. 

Helping to kick off the party was Three Leg Torso. As a surprise to Maddie, Doug hired them to serenade his new wife. Three Leg Torso is extra special as they also played at their engagement, when Maddie heard the tunes, she knew and was so excited. Vibrant Table provided delicious food with a Spanish theme throughout the evening and included some late night snacks of mini corndogs and sliders. As guests mingled throughout the night the biggest hit was the ice luge guests were invited to try. You can bet after a few visits to the ice luge the dance floor was packed. Chad Dowling kept the guests dancing all night. Was a night to remember and I was so glad we were able to be apart of it all! Thank you Maddie & Doug!
