Real Mia Grace Bride: Wedding of Kelsey and Brooks
Congratulations to Kelsey and Brooks on their gorgeous fall wedding! It was love at first sight for these two, and they tied the knot last month with a beautiful ceremony and reception. We are excited to share their love story and pictures with you!
"When it was time to wedding dress shop my older sister was the one to tell me about Mia Grace. I am so glad she did because from the moment I walked into the store I was treated like royalty. [My stylist] pulled about every dress imaginable as I was not sure of what style I wanted. Because of her I found the dress and loved every minute of my appointment!" - Kelsey
Brooks and Kelsey met at a bar in the small town of Fayette, MO on December 11, 2014. He was coming back from a work trip and Kelsey was a senior in college. Although she had no voice due to student teaching, somehow they talked the night away. They both realized they had found a friend and someone to confide in. It wasn't very long until both Kelsey and Brooks realized that there was more than just a friendship starting to happen and the rest is history!
She Said Yes!
As a Christmas gift, Brooks got Kelsey a digital picture frame and planned for them to stay in STL and go see the Christmas lights at the STL Zoo. Rain moved into the area the night it was supposed to happen, and Brooks knew he had to come up with a different plan. So they took their dogs for a walk around the lake at Forest Park. Brooks loves to take pictures and was taking pictures of Kelsey as they went along their walk. Little did Kelsey know, he was trying to find the perfect spot to propose. When he found the perfect spot, he asked a random couple to take their picture together and then he proposed! Kelsey was completely shocked and full of happiness! Later that night, Brooks uploaded all the pictures from the day onto the digital picture frame he gave Kesley for Christmas!
Brooks and Kelsey's wedding theme was rustic elegance. The venue, The Apple Shed, was the perfect place for their wedding! Everything came together perfectly for their gorgeous fall wedding.
