“Greg and I first went ring shopping together back in January 2010, fast forward to April, and still no proposal!” laughs Brooke. “Then one evening, during dinner, Greg suddenly began to tell me how happy he was, and then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife,” she adds
The bride’s real wedding abroad outfit
Brooke radiates bridal beauty in the Vera Wang gown she found at Anna Be Bridal Boutique in Denver, America. “It was precisely the type of dress I didn’t want to wear, but when I put the gown on, it felt magical. I could picture how the outfit would fit in with our day, and it was the perfect balance of traditional and unique – just like our wedding!” beams Brooke
The groom’s outfit
“I love that Greg bought his own suit (from Theory). I thought he looked so handsome, and the suit was a slightly more modern cut with a slimmer fit,” remembers Brooke
Brooke had one lovely lady to accompany her down the aisle, her sister, Sarah. “Greg and I wanted a really intimate real wedding abroad, focused on family. With that idea in mind, we both chose my sister and his brother,” explains Brooke
“Greg and I met at Regis university and loved the idea of being married there”
“My real wedding flowers were from The Perfect Petal,” recalls Brooke. “The florist used floating candle centrepieces, alongside small floral arrangements, with just two or three buds per vase. She also really understood my colour palette and chose a wide variety, from the vibrant orange colour to subtle peach and pinks.”
“Greg and I met at Regis university, and loved the idea of being married there. My aunt Trisha married us, in the beautiful outside grotto. Also, to help with the heat, we gave each of our guests a sweet orange parasol,” says Brooke
“When we were planning our real wedding abroad, we envisioned a big summer party that was bright and cheerful,” recalls Brooke. Catering was provided by A Spice of Life, while the yummy cakes were from Living the Sweet Life. “People often joke that Colorado, America is a very ‘granola’ town, meaning that the people like organic, healthy food. To make a bit of a joke out of this, we gave our guests little bags of locally made granola,” smiles Brooke
Was to see family in Brooke’s hometown of Pensacola, Florida.
