Hi! My name is Madi Edwards and I am the owner and lead coordinator of Wedding Lily Events! I’m so excited to finally start my blog and I wanted to tell you guys a little bit about myself, how I got into wedding planning, and what to expect us to be blogging about in the future!
I’m a dog mom to an Australian Shepherd named Jack and I’ve been married to my amazing husband since September 2018! He is in the Marine Corps and is the love of my life. I love anything that has to do with chocolate, a glass of wine, and binge-watching Netflix! I am very OCD about 95% of the time other than keeping my car clean. I am always on the go and basically live out my car, so It never stays the way I want it. Saying I love staying busy is an understatement. Three of my future goals are to buy a house, start a family, and travel! I love love love to travel! I’ve been to quite a few places but would love to explore more!
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my company lately so I figured I’d incorporate them into this post! What better way to get to know me than through what I love??
What experience do you have and how long have you been planning?
I’ve been doing wedding planning for a few years now. I started off helping my sister plan her wedding in May of 2017. When I got engaged in January 2018, I knew I wanted to plan my own wedding and help other brides as well! When I realized how much I enjoyed it, I found an internship through another planning company in the area. I started as an intern and worked my way up to assistant coordinator and then became a lead coordinator. I decided to branch off and start my own company shortly after!
What is your favorite part of the job?
My absolute favorite part is getting to meet so many amazing couples and getting to know them each on a personal level. My favorite part of the wedding day is getting to watch the bride walk down the aisle to marry her best friend! It’s the whole reason I love wedding planning!
What are some trends that you love going on in the wedding world right now?
I absolutely love the boho style and anything moody. These are great elements that brides are adding to their wedding. I think it adds depth and a romantic feel! Also, dried florals are trending at the moment and they are a beautiful and budget-friendly additive to your wedding flowers.
How did you come up with the name Wedding Lily?
After hours of writing down words and sayings I liked, I ended up thinking about family names. My great grandmother’s name was Lily Grace and I’ve always found it so beautiful. One day when I have children, I’d like to name my daughter Lily as well!
Where do you work out of?
I work from home most days but when I get stir crazy or my husband is playing Call of Duty on full volume you can normally find me at any local coffee shop in downtown Fredericksburg with a Chai latte in hand!
