Elegant Fairytale Wedding at Hummingbird Nest

Madison and Quentyn's nuptials brought their fairytale romance to life.
Emily Sweet

Madison and Quentyn's wedding day was timeless and classic. After getting engaged in Napa Valley in 2020 in front of both their families, the couple began planning for their special day. The decor was simple but extravagant, with blossoming florals accompanying a traditional white color palette. A white aisle led the way to the altar, which was a white acrylic stage, and the couple stood elevated to make sure all their guests had a memorable view of the ceremony. Two free-standing eight-foot poles framed the altar and were adorned with florals and greenery, and floral arrangements were elegantly draped off of the altar. Chic cylindrical candles framed the ceremony spot, adding to the ethereal and elegant feel of the entire event. For the reception, white decor with gold and black accents brought a unique element to the design. Custom black and white menus and napkins with the wedding date on them also added a personalized element. Twinkle lights lined the reception site, adding a whimsical fairytale feel to the event, which bride Madison said completed her vision. White florals added a contemporary yet traditional element to the design, and Madison's bouquet featured only white long-stem garden roses elegantly tied together with excess fabric from Madison's dress, which was kept after alterations and given to Unique Florals to use for the bouquet. For centerpieces, greenery added an accent of color alongside white florals, featuring sweet peas, ranunculus, Italian ruscus and spray roses. Straying away from tradition, Madison opted for a mother-daughter dance to reflect her close relationship with her mother, adding a unique twist to a classic tradition. The couple decided to incorporate a few unique aspects and meaningful moments into their day, before the ceremony their both their mothers poured unity sand to meld their two families together. They also honored their mothers and grandmothers at the ceremony by presenting them with red roses, a symbol of the foundation they created for the new union between Madison and Quentyn. The couple was married by their pastor, which Madison said was especially meaningful as he has known the couple for a long time. For their grand exit, they lived their own fairytale, as Madison's parents organized a horse-drawn carriage to escort the newly married couple out.
