Fall head over heels for Madison and Shawn's November wedding at Maison Albion. Fall vibes, novels & board games, and a historic mansion made this wedding one to remember. Including a ceremony on a covered patio and private vows on our front porch, then a cocktail hour, buffet dinner, and dancing the night away inside our Ballroom.
"Our love story began in beautiful Costa Rica, the Pura Vida country that will always be a part of us. We fell in love speaking Spanish, riding waves (or falling into them), and exploring every corner we could," said Madison and Shawn. After spending time together, exploring the world, and sharing each other's dreams and goals, "The first chapter of our story came full circle when we returned to Monteverde, Costa Rica, and got engaged!" The next chapter is about becoming husband and wife at Maison Albion.
Madison and Shawn shared their vows with their closest family and friends on Maison Albion's covered patio on a crisp autumn day in November. Before walking down the aisle, Madison and Shawn shared private vows on our pillared front porch. Madison chose to hold her vows in the novel " The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien to incorporate some of her interests into her wedding day - also a nod to their engagement photos taken at Rochester's Public Library.
To match the season, the color scheme of Madison and Shawn's big day was shades of dark green, neutral creams, and hints of gold. While getting ready, Madison's Bridal party wore dark green comfy pajamas. They then changed into different styled dark green maxi dresses with satin gold shawls and one dark green suit. Shawn and his groomsmen also looked dapper in their dark green suits, detailed with their Sola Wood Flower boutonnieres. Madison, however, was the show-stopper in her intricate lace, v-neck, and cap-sleeved dress. This bridal dress offered Madison a fit and flare silhouette that highlighted all her feminine curves! An open back and buttons down the zipper, flowing into a sweep train, made all the details come together on her beautiful dress.
After the ceremony on our covered patio, Madison and Shawn welcomed their guests to play board games and enjoy appetizers and drinks during cocktail hour inside our grand Ballroom. During this time, Madison and Shawn took their time waltzing around Maison Albion's 7 acres of land, posing for the most dazzling fall photos. From photos in front of our Secret Garden to swinging on our macrame bridal swing.
Madison and Shawn then made their grand entrance down the Titanic Ballroom staircase for the second time in the day as husband and wife. After their formal entry, the couple went to the dance floor for their first dance. Dinner, parent dances, and dessert followed in the night.
This young couples wedding day was one for the books; congratulations and happy ever after to the newest Mr. and Mrs.
