jamie and brooke’s story

Jamie and Brooke met at work. “The stars aligned and fate brought us together in 2018,” they share. “It was an instant connection.”

For the proposal, Jamie had her work cut out to plan the big moment without Brooke finding out. 

“I’m pretty tough to surprise,” says Brooke. 

Jamie planned a photo shoot for herself and Brooke. With the photo shoot as the cover story, she was able to have Brooke get her hair and nails done while she got the ring to the photographer in advance. Brooke didn’t give a second thought to the special preparations, but jokingly told Jamie it would be funny if she proposed as they were on their way to the photo shoot. 

Little did she know that was the exact plan! 

“The photographer placed the ring behind me at the perfect moment and I had no idea the entire time and still did not even expect Jamie to ask me,” Brooke says.

Jamie proposed at the very beginning of the photo shoot and Brooke said “Yes!” “We were able to enjoy the entire session together, literally infatuated,” she shares. “It was such a beautiful evening and I felt like I was on cloud 9!”

the details

Brooke and Jamie chose The Villa in Carriere, MS for their April 2023 wedding ceremony. “I thought the white washed brick and French style was beautiful,” Brooke shares.

Brooke carried a bouquet of ivory roses and Jamie wore an angel pin that she gifted to her late grandmother when she was a child as her “Something Old”.

the wedding ceremony

The couple shared their vows in a beautiful ceremony. For their first kiss as newlyweds, Jamie, who is shorter than Brooke, stood on a small step stool. The step stool was a reflection of Jamie’s personality. Brooke shares, “She thought this would be a funny way to be taller than me on our wedding day.”

Jamie and Brooke shared their first dance to “I Guess I’m in Love” by Clinton Kane. “We just both heard it one day and we knew it was the song for us!” says Brooke.

The couple’s three-tier wedding cake was watched over by a small statue of their dog Roux. “He’s basically like our child,” shares Brooke. Afterwards, they danced the night away and had a bubbly exit at the end of the evening.
