    Ages: Madeline is 24. Hannah is 25.

    Occupations: Madeline is an occupational therapist. Hannah is a respiratory therapist.

    How they met: In high school. They played softball together and quickly became best friends.

    Engagement story: In January 2017 Madeline planned a trip to California for that May with plans to propose. She bought a ring at Shane Co. with her friend Brittany. Little did Madeline know, in February Hannah went with the same mutual friend (both to Shane Co.) to buy Madeline’s engagement ring. Come May, at Lake Tahoe, Madeline nervously pulled out a ring and popped the question. Hannah’s response was, “What?! Yours is in the car!!” Hannah proposed later that week in Yosemite in front of a waterfall.

    Number of wedding guests: 200.

    Ceremony and reception: Old Blue Ribbon Farm, Eminence.

    Wedding theme: Rustic.

    Personal touches: Madeline and friends made the signs, stationery and decor. Centerpieces were made of wine bottles from wineries the couple had visited. Madeline’s friend DJ’d.

    First-dance song: “Perfect,” Ed Sheeran.

    The day in three words: “Best. Day. Ever.”

    One disagreement: “In the beginning we disagreed on the venue,” Madeline says. “I fell in love with Old Blue Ribbon Farm the second I came across it on The Knot. Hannah was hesitant, as she wanted an indoor wedding at a more contemporary venue.”

    Really glad they: Ended up doing a first look and getting a videographer.

    Wish they would have: Tried to not stress so much over the little things ahead of time.

    Advice: “Take the whole day in as much as possible and enjoy every little detail,” Madeline says. “Also have friends and family take lots of pics on their phones throughout the day so you can see the day through their eyes, too.”
