Bambino, the couple’s bulldog, served as ring bearer.
Brooke’s dress was a “game-day pick,” she says. She had a backup option (a long, strapless number) to accommodate her changing figure, but couldn’t resist the shortie.
The bride and groom toasted with her maternal grandmother’s flutes.
The bride craved an organic diet during her pregnancy, so Ashley Bakery skipped colored icing and relied on blueberries to deliver the “It’s a boy!” message with the gender reveal wedding cake.
“I have never seen so many flowers in one place,” says Brooke of the blooms that dressed the ceremony, cake cutting, and brunch.

Brooke’s mom carried on her party tradition of sharing paper crowns and poppers, and customized the latter with rhyming riddles about the newlyweds.
“Although I didn’t get to drink rosé on my wedding day,” says Brooke, “I was perfectly content with my rosé gummies.”
The couple left the reception in the father of the bride’s 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. Brooke’s mother penned the “Happily Ever After” sign, which now hangs in the newlywed’s bedroom.
