The more photos that emerge from Julianne Hough’s July 8 nuptials, the more all of her fans are realizing what an amazing event this was. From her multiple dresses to the reaction her now hubby Brooks Laich had when he saw his bride for the first time, this lakeside wedding day near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was filled with priceless moments.
“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,” Julianne told People magazine in this week’s cover story. “It just felt right to be married here.”
“It was really important to me that we had our ceremony outdoors,” added Brooks in the article. “Julianne and I are very adventurous and free, and wanted the setting to be in nature.”
The couple’s love was evident throughout the ceremony. “Brooks and I kept eye contact the entire ceremony,” Julianne tells the magazine. “We never stopped looking at each other. [My favorite moment was] 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!”
