They say in college you will meet the people you will be friends with for the rest of your life and if you are lucky, you will meet the love of your life. Brooke and James almost missed each other at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina but fate brought them together in Miami, Florida while Brooke was on vacation. This beautiful couple got engaged on Brooke's birthday, November 15, 2012 and were married a little under a year later on June 23, 2013. Brooke's favorite quote is "Love is in the details" and she focused on just that to create the Wedding of her dreams. Check out the #Foreverberry Fairytale below.
The couple chose Kiwi and Grey as their color palette. I never would've thought of using kiwi green, but I love how the two colors came together!
The bride is already a natural beauty, so the subtle neutral makeup only enhanced her gorgeous face and what girl doesn't love a sparkly pair of shoes? Instead of opting for a full sequin shoe, find a shoe with just a sequin heel for a subtle touch.
The bridesmaids were glamorous and sparkly wearing long, curve-fitting gowns and lots of bling also, each of the bridesmaids bouquets were different. The flower girls wore custom tutu gowns and instead of tossing flower petals, carried a DIY sign that announced, Here Comes the Bride!
The groomsmen wore traditional, sleek tuxes and converse sneakers with patterned socks. James had a custom pair of converse designed especially for the day with their social media tag #foreverberry embroidered into the shoe.
It was very important to the couple that both families had an amazing time at the cocktail reception, so they set it up like a lounge so everyone could mix and mingle, have drinks, eat and ultimately dance the afternoon away!
When asked about her wedding day, Brooke said simply, "[it] was truly amazing".
