Brooke + Stephen are married!
And such a sweet wedding day, it was! Brooke was raised in Texas, but has been living and teaching in New York city -- her husband, Stephen, is from Ireland! So as you can imagine, a lot of nods to their roots were seen throughout the wedding day! A canvas showcasing Texas, New York & Ireland stood at the entryway of the church for guests to sign, an Irish folk song accompanied the popcorn favors, the Ireland and United States flags even made their way down the aisle in the hands of the ring bearer and flower girl -- so sweet!
Brooke's father gave her away AND performed the ceremony in their family church! Stephen also surprised Brooke with a song he wrote for her - it was the first time she heard it during their ceremony as they lit their unity candle -- an amazing moment, for sure! He also had the song transcribed and the sheet music + lyrics of the song were used to decorate their wedding cake! Such thoughtfulness -- we loved it!
Family & guests from (literally) all over - Texas, New York, Ireland, and I'm sure some other places, too, came together to celebrate with the newlyweds. So much love and joy for the bride + groom from all in attendance. The ceremony was even live-streamed to Stephen's family + friends in Ireland who couldn't attend!
We were honored to be a part of such a wonderful wedding day and we know Brooke + Stephen have many blessed years ahead of them! Congratulations!
