Where were you born? I was born in Kirkland, Washington.

Did you always want to be a wedding planner? No, I did not always want to be a wedding planner. I started out my college career in the Culinary Arts program at Lake Washington Technical College. Shortly after I switched to the Dental Hygiene program (I decided that wasn’t for me either). I then heard about a program at Edmonds Community College that offered an Event Planning Degree. I really enjoyed event planning in High School and decided this was something I was very interested in. The program was about 2 years and I came out if it with my Event Planning Degree.

What is your favorite glass of wine? A Moscato or Rosé.

What is your favorite sweet treat? I have to choose just one?? This is so hard um… right now a Macaroon sounds delicious.

What is your guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure is having sweets for breakfast and cereal for dinner.

What is something that you wish you could have right now? Something I wish I could have right now would be a relaxing vacation on a beach.

What is your dream vacation? My dream vacation is an all inclusive resort on a white sandy beach in the sunshine.

What are your dream venues or locations: My dream location would be in Hawaii with my immediate family or a rustic looking venue in the summer.

One piece of advice for every couple you meet: One piece of advice for every couple I meet would be: it’s not about the perfect wedding but the memories you create, and the friends and family you share it with that will last you a lifetime. So don’t obsess over the small stuff, it will all come together in the end. That is what we’re here for.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing Madi was for our wedding planner! The day of I was absolutely amazed! She handled EVERY detail going on. As the bride I never saw or heard of one flaw or mishap. I can’t thank Taylor’d Events enough and especially Madi for all her hard work! It’s because of you I got to enjoy my wedding day to its full extent! If I could give them 10 stars I would!”
