Hey! I'm Maddie, the founder of Sonnet Weddings & Events! I’m a good listener and peacekeeper. I love strategizing interesting family dynamics and being a mini therapist as you set the stage for starting your own family unit. I will have the most fun brainstorming how to incorporate your nerdy obsessions, and thinking of ways to make your wedding feel so much like you it couldn’t be anyone else’s day.
My eye is drawn to fun colors and my heart is full when I’m designing bold, bright, happy weddings. I also love minimalist aesthetics and classic looks! Being creative and getting to build/paint/craft/dye/forage/thrift is a joyful part of my job.
My husband and I have a big veggie and flower garden where we are waging a constant battle against the deer that keep knocking over our fence to get to the rainbow chard.
I would love to see many photos and cute videos of your pets. We have a cat of our own, Leonard, and I volunteer with the NWA Community Cat Project trapping and neutering stray cats and fostering some of the ones that turn out to be friendly! I used to volunteer in Texas working with super shy and scaredy shelter dogs and I grew up with a hilarious blind/incontinent beagle. I love animals!
I am positive and calm and love working with my couples. You can expect me to tell you over and over throughout the planning process that you’re doing a great job and that everything is alright.

Above and Beyond in EVERY way!
Maddie and her team are by far the best in the biz! When we first got engaged and started wedding planning we had NO idea where to begin! We kind of had an idea of a budget that we wanted to stick to but didn't know if it was realistic. We reached out to a few different planners and met with 3. Maddie was the first planner we met with and we hit it off so well that we almost canceled our meetings with the other planners. Our favorite thing that Maddie talked to us about in our initial meeting was when she asked us what our priorities were for the wedding. This was so important because there were others that suggested various percentages for different categories and items but Maddie truly made it about us. She was there for us every step of the way and SO SO SO supportive! We had a venue change, a dress failure, and a few other bumps along the way but I never felt stressed throughout the whole year of planning because Maddie made everything so stress free. Maddie and her team went above and beyond anything I ever expected of them through the whole planning process and on the day of the wedding. I recommend Sonnet Weddings to every couple I know that gets engaged! It was the best investment we made for our wedding!! Worth every penny!Sent on 01/06/2020

Designer and encourager in chief!
I loved working with Maddie for my October wedding. She was essential to helping me describe and implement my dream wedding, and she’s a joy to interact with. Even though I had a basic idea of what I wanted for our big day, I had no idea how to execute it or communicate it to others. Maddie sat down with me and asked me tons of great questions to tease out my vision, and she made the most beautiful and detailed design document that was my saving grace throughout the planning process. It kept my vision focused on the things that were most important to me and helped me communicate that to my vendors.Sent on 11/23/2019
Maddie is so knowledgeable, and she was a voice of reason through the planning process and wedding weekend. She constantly encouraged me, and I knew I could trust her with the tasks she took on. She even gave birth to her first baby weeks before my wedding so she worked diligently to make sure everything possible contingency was covered.
No matter what your style is, your wedding will be better if Sonnet is a part of it!
