Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich Are Married!
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich have officially tied the knot! After getting hyped up over her "beachlorette" party and brother Derek Hough's celebration intel, the dancer's big day has finally happened, and it was just as great as it was slotted to be. People shared the exclusive details, and you'll definitely want to read up on the Saturday celebration.
Hough and Laich had an outdoor ceremony in front of over 200 family members and friends. Hough wore a custom Marchesa wedding dress and accessorized with Lorraine Schwart jewelry. Meanwhile, Laich looked expectedly dapper, wearing a Brooks Brothers tuxedo. The celebration was planned by Simply Troy Lifestyle + Events and took place in Idaho. "It was really important to me that we had our ceremony outdoors," Laich told People. "Julianne and I are very adventurous and free and wanted the setting to be in nature."
There were plenty of recognizable guests in attendance, including Hough's close friend Nina Dobrev. "I've never seen a man look at a woman like that," the actress shared of the ceremony, adding "It took my breath away." Among the guests was also Derek Hough, Julianne's close brother and dancing partner, who served as a groomsman for the celebration.
As anticipated, Hough and Laich's first dance was well-planned and memorable. Leave it to the dancing star and her enthusiastic hubby to kill it on the dance floor! DJ Derek Monteiro provided the music, and the antique-mirror dance floor was custom-made. The pair's dogs also made an appearance, just as Hough had promised. Both pups wore flower collars and served as the wedding's ring bearers.
Other notable details included the nuptial flower arrangements, which were designed by Wild Bloom. Roses, tulips, grasses, and more surrounded the outdoor space. For the ceremony, guests watched from wooden pews, and at the reception, munched from a delicious Le Catering menu. Prior to the special day, Hough and Laich hosted a Thursday welcome dinner, followed by a lake day before the big moment on Friday. All in all, the wedding was a success for the couple. "I don't think I ever really necessarily dreamed about my wedding as a kid," Hough shared, "But I know I will always cherish and remember it for the rest of my life."
Hough and Laich got engaged in 2015 when the hockey star proposed. "It was magical and sweet. We were at home, romantic, and relaxed, which is perfectly very 'us,'" Hough recalled on her blog. "We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs. Not even for a second did I expect that beautiful, serene scene was about to become one of the most meaningful moments of our lives."
