Our story

Maddie and Sean met on a combined school trip in 2013. Ironically, the trip was to New York City and was with their photography classes. After 7 months of painfully awkward "friendship" (apologies to all of our friends and family), Maddie finally got the guts to ask Sean out. Luckily he said "yes" to the million-dollar question.

Maddie ended up following Sean to Frostburg State University where they attended college and met some of their best friends. When it came time to graduate, the pandemic conveniently hit. Maddie knew despite the situation, she had to move to NYC. And so she did.

In October 2020, Sean finally popped the question after EVERYONE bugging him to.

In June of 2021, Sean caught the city bug and followed Maddie there.

After a long engagement, they are happy to celebrate love, and their closest friends and family for being a part of their journey.

Inky Crosshatched Sketch Lavender

When Colonel J. Mayhew Wainwright was stationed in France during WW1, he was headquartered at an 18th century chateau called Raincheval, which came to have a big impact on him.

On the night before he was to lead his men to battle, he promised himself that if he came through the war alive and made it back to Rye, he would build a chateau resembling Raincheval on the family land on Milton Point. He did, completing Wainwright House in 1928.
