Can you combine insanely chic glamour with complete down to earth emotion and love? Oh yes you can. Madison and Jim are the perfect example of it all, with one of the most stylish weddings I’ve seen in awhile – all while being two of the sweetest people ever (and they’re dog people, so they’re automatic winners in my book). Jana Williams snapped up all the beauty and Hoo Films captured all the action live – and we’re the lucky ones who get to witness it over and over again – enjoy!

From Hoo Films… It was almost too much beauty for one place. Madison and Jim’s wedding at Hotel Bel Air was filled with love, emotion, laughter, and lots of dancing. The day started with some heart-breaking news, but it was nothing that Madison and Jim’s partnership couldn’t handle together. The moment she saw him, all was right. The love and passion between this gorgeous couple is one to be envied. The celebrations continued throughout the evening with so much love in the air. And we all know what’s going to happen next… a million rescue dogs and a million babies! :) Enjoy this romantic trailer with amazing personal vows!
From Jana Williams… Having the opportunity to photography Madison and Jim’s big day forever changed me! These two New Yorkers had not one, but two ceremonies. They tied the knot in New York but knew they wanted to have a spring destination wedding to spend with their loved ones in sunny SoCal. Like many brides, she struggled with deciding if she wanted a classic “princess” dress or choose one more fitted. Finally Madison decided on an avant-garde dress by designer Berta. With the custom train, Madison looked chic and timeless! The reception was elegant and modern with the use of white and rose gold decor.
Before Jim, Madison had another man in her life. That man was her dog, Eugene! She is a huge dog activist and has firm beliefs on adopting rather than “shopping.” On the day of Jim and Madison’s wedding they had to make a tough decision and put Eugene down. (The same day, ya’ll!) Having to put down her longtime best fur friend, she knew this was Eugene telling her that he was okay with Jim coming into her life! I mean, if that alone isn’t making you tear up just a little bit, take a look at their wedding video to catch her speech!
