Our story began when Madison was two, eating her first bite of cake in a floral sundress. Not much has changed in the last twenty-three years, except her taste has now evolved from Baby Gap to J. Crew, and that love for cake has gotten her pretty far.
She explored her creativity at Virginia Tech studying theatre and event design, and graduating top of her class. She took her first internship with a wedding planner in Washington, DC where she learned all the tricks of the trade and became familiar with many popular venues in the area. From those connections, she was offered her first event job, and worked on a variety of weddings, music festivals at FedEx Field, corporate events at the National Harbor, and many high-end parties. She found that her passion is social events: weddings, kids parties, baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, and holiday parties.
Madison began to dream about what it would be like to have her own event brand, one that had her special touch of elegance, sophistication, and of course, fun. MAE was founded in the middle of a pandemic in 2020, but Madison persevered because she saw the vision she had and knew it was worth fighting for.
Now, less than two years later, Madison has done over twenty-five events under her own brand, been seen in Washingtonian magazine, worked at over 20 different venues in the DC area, and has a team of planners to help her make her clients' dreams come to life.
We hope you join us on our journey, as there will be lots of champagne, smiles, and, of course, cake involved.
