Congrats to the Mr. and Mrs.!
As for the location, it was important to the couple to have the festivities take place on the lake.
“When I introduced Brooks to the lake, he fell in love with this special spot, and we knew this was where we wanted to raise our family and grow old together. It just felt right to be married here.”
The 34-year-old athlete added:
“It was really important to me that we had our ceremony outdoors. Julianne and I are very adventurous and free, and wanted the setting to be in nature.”
So, let’s break down the details.
More than 2,000 blooms were arranged by Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht of Wild Bloom — which were later donated to The Full Bloom, a non-profit that repurposes gently used flowers into arrangements for hospital and hospice patients. Amazing!
During the ceremony, the 28-year-old couldn’t keep her eyes off of her new husband:
“Brooks and I kept eye contact the entire ceremony. We never stopped looking at each other.”
Adding of her favorite moment:
“Kissing each other for the first time as husband and wife as the confetti cannons exploded around us. I couldn’t stop crying all weekend and most people [thought] I would have cried during the entire ceremony, but instead I was just so excited and ready to celebrate!”
The beautiful bride also had something up her sleeve as she surprised Brooks with fireworks during their first dance as OneRepublic‘s All This Time played in the background.
