Our Story

Ryan and Madison’s love story began at a little place in Old Town Scottsdale called El Hefe. If we are being honest, it is not typically considered the classiest of places - Madison had been out for a “Sunday Funday” when she happened to cross paths with the most incredible guy she had ever seen (in other words, he was super hot). She was sporting a relatively tasteless Halloween costume, but liquid courage gave her the push to approach Ryan, the first and last time she would ever do that.

Ryan thought Madison was funny and a little flirtatious banter was exchanged back and forth. After the conversation ended, they parted ways without sharing any information other than their first names. Ryan was really stuck on the conversations they shared, but he didn’t have a phone number or even last name to try to find Madison. Ryan did what any other millennial would do these days - the next morning he took to Instagram to find the girl he met at the bar. With only a first name, Ryan was able to find Madison on Instagram and essentially “slide into her DMs.” The rest is history.

With three years of amazing memories, a first date including golfing (which Madison is absolutely terrible at), it was clear they were made for one another. Ryan proposed February 22nd of 2020. Over time, God has continued to bless Madison and Ryan as they build an unbreakable faith-centered relationship with love, loyalty, and servanthood.

The weekend Ryan and Madison are getting married will be the same weekend they met four years ago. Luckily, the wedding will not be held at El Hefe in Old Town Scottsdale. Thank you for joining in this celebration!
