Madeline Gall & Gabriel Valk

November 7, 2020

Madeline and Kale were both living in Charlotte when they connected via a dating app. Just seven months later, they were packing up and moving to Greenville together. On Madeline’s thirtieth birthday, less than a year and a half after they met, Kale concocted a surprise proposal at the Liberty Bridge in Falls Park. After her shocked and excited “yes!” the pair headed to Jianna for dinner, where they were greeted with Champagne and a special hand-printed menu. Not even a pandemic could stop these two from celebrating their love at Westfield, where Madeline wore a Lis Simon gown to marry her best friend. Currently, Kale is the assistant director of residence life at Furman University, and Madeline works as a special education teacher at Wade Hampton High School.
