Real Wedding Wednesday: Brooke and Andrew


Tilley here with your weekly dose of wedded bliss! Today’s real Virginia wedding took place just about one month ago at the Patrick Henry Ballroom in Roanoke. I adore the bight yellow walls, such a southern venue!


Equally as southern is today’s beautiful bride, Brooke! Wait till you see her gown…#omg.


Amazing right?! That sweetheart neckline and full skirt make for a show stopping look! Brooke’s maids wore light blue maxi gowns and her adorable flower girls were dressed in sequined bodice, tulle dresses.


Andrew and his groomsmen rocked blue suits and bow ties.


The ceremony really stood out to me with these gorgeous curtains that the wedding party emerged from…


When it was Brooke’s turn, she said she felt “weak in the knees” seeing her groom for the first time at the end of the aisle. So touching…


Then, they were man and wife! Also, that veil…LOVE!


Get it Brooke! Too cute!


And, again, I can’t get over that dress! Allllll the heart eye emojis!


Their cake was pretty epic too with rosettes that almost mimic her gown.


According to Brooke, the party was one to remember and judging by everyones excitement, I totally believe her! Also, how about that dress she is rocking for their grand exit? Her style is on point! Congrats you two love birds!

From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail from the day? “My favorite detail of the day was the fact that both our families and close friends were involved entirely with the wedding. They were such a big help and having such love surrounding you all day will make you feel like you’re on cloud 9. Not to mention I married my best friend.”
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “I would encourage that all brides to be try and NOT take the planning so seriously, being proactive and organized is important, but when you drown yourself in planning and details…that’s when it’s not fun anymore and you get overwhelmed! Just have a great time and enjoy every minute of the ride. And take your time on your wedding day, it goes by so so fast!!”
