MADILYN ROBISON + ETHAN HANSEN // AUG. 1, 2019
The stars aligned when Madilyn Robison and Ethan Hansen met in an apartment complex hot tub. “Real romantic, right?!” Madilyn jokes. But in all seriousness, this stunning couple’s love story was written in the stars. “He’s the best man I’ve ever come across, and I’m so glad I met him in a too-crowded hot tub on a Tuesday night,” Madilyn says.
When it came time to propose, Ethan kept Madilyn guessing. For weeks he took her on the craziest dates to throw her off, and then he finally proposed after the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival.
Madilyn began planning a starry night to remember. She had a neon “Over The Moon” sign shipped from Australia that set the tone for the entire event.
The couple’s big day started with the ceremony at the Salt Lake LDS Temple, followed by a luncheon at Caffe Molise. Then it was time to party at the reception. The night ended with a splash! “For a moment I didn’t want to jump in the pool and ruin my hair and makeup,” Madilyn says. “But it felt so good to let loose and laugh with my friends and family. I would definitely ruin any fancy getup for a moment like that again.”
Picture This Madilyn and Ethan both grew up in Utah and loved hosting their friends and family in a cozy, chic setting. The show-stopping pampas grass chandelier added warmth to their whimsical stars-and-moon theme. “I have gotten more compliments about the pampas grass than I can even begin to explain!” Madilyn says. She got the idea on Pinterest and her talented florist, Sarah Asay of Blushing Rose Floral, brought it to life.
Dream Scene The elevator at Caffé Molise made for a perfect little photo op with their incredible photographer, In Frames Photography. “I love those photos because they are so vintage and romantic,” Madilyn says. “And my hair looks bomb!” Speaking of romantic, can we talk about Madilyn’s silky little number from Alta Moda Bridal? The ever-so-slight puff sleeve and that like-a-glove fit is what dress dreams are made of. FUN FACT: The gown by Jen Jackson Designs was customized for Madilyn. The designer loved the updated version so much she added it to her collection and calls it Robi (after Madilyn’s maiden name Robison). Pillow seating and tables from Utah Vintage Rentals made for a fun, unique touch as guests dined on chicken tacos. The night ended with a splash as the bridal party and balloons landed in the pool.
