Brooke and Heath met while watching football in a little bar in Bethlehem, GA and instantly bonded over their shared interests. Brooke has told Heath that she knew she loved him on Valentine’s Day, 2015 when he planned an amazing date that she says she’s “always cherished”. Knowing this, Heath didn’t miss a beat when planning his proposal. He reenacted the whole date! Only this time, at the end of the night, he got down on one knee and proposed. Brooke said yes and planning for their English Garden themed wedding was underway. They exchanged vows on the grounds of Blue Mountain Vineyards beside an arbor covered with white flowers and greenery as their “best dog”, Patches, looked on in approval.
Brooke was gorgeous in her fitted lace gown with its delicate cap sleeves and plunging neckline. She topped off her look with antique jewelry borrowed from her grandmother and a pearl and rhinestone comb in her hair. Her bridesmaids wore pale seafoam green gowns, each with a different bodice and all of the ladies carried bouquets of white florals and greenery. Brooke’s bouquet featured pops of peach and purple. Heath was handsome in a dark brown, three-piece suit which he paired with a brown tie and his groomsmen were dapper in gray.
At the reception, floor to ceiling ivory drapery was added to the space to create what Brooke called “a romantic and inviting space”. Tables were set with crisp white linens and centerpieces of white florals with lush greenery. Hurricane candles and silver accents completed the tablescapes while Brooke and Heath’s sweetheart table featured a grand floral arrangement with delicate pops of color. Brooke made a large W out of corks to celebrate her new last name and vineyard venue and the newlyweds included an Anniversary Dance in the festivities to honor Brooke’s grandparents who were celebrating their 50th! At the end of the night, guests saw the happy couple off with sparklers in hand. Congratulations Brooke and Heath!
