LocationThe marriage took place in the church of Tree Hill. The church was decorated by Julian, Haley and Sylvia, from the "design" from Brooke's wedding book, although Sylvia (who paid for the marriage) did not agree to how she wanted it to be. It was decorated with white flowers (the same as Brooke's bouquet), white candles, a white alley with white flower petals. The church also used a light system set up for marriage by Quinn for the photos.
Brooke, before I met you I thought my world had everything I needed to be happy. I had nothing else to compare it to, then you walked into my life and everything changed. I realized how empty my world was without you in it, and my old life was no longer capable of making me happy… not without you. I love everything about you, Brooke. I love the way you challenged me like no one ever has. I love the way you look at me like no one ever has, and I love the way you love me like no one ever has. I can’t imagine spending my life without you, and if you say “yes” to me in a few minutes, I won’t have to. You look beautiful by the way.
BrookeJulian, before I met you my world revolved around one thing… me. And I liked it that way on my own, but then I met you and you saw through the facade. You saw me. You’ve taught me to trust, how to let someone in, and what it truly means to fall in love. I can’t possibly describe how much I love you, so I’ll tell you why I love you. You see the world in a way that no one else does and you appreciate everything, including me. There’s no one in the world like you, and if you say “yes” in a few minutes, I’ll get to spend the rest of my life trying to see the world through your eyes, appreciating everything, including you… the most unique, wonderful, and terribly handsome man I have ever met. Julian and brooke had twins and their names were .....
LocationThe fest took place in a beautiful room, decorated by Haley and Sylvia. The decor was quite similar to the one in the church: white flowers and candles. The main style of the room was a very formal black and white theme exept for the wall which was a deep red/pink colour, and the flowers had the same colour as the wall.
The black was the statement color with the bold floor being black as well as the runners along the tables. The tablecloths were white, and the chairs were transparent, with white silk noeauds.During the reception, Haley was afraid whether the room would please Brooke. Nathan told his wife that the room was beautiful, and she shouldn't worry. He thought Haley and Sylvia were very talented with wedding decorations. The tables were spread near the dancefloor and the table of the spouses just beside the dancefloor. The waiters served food and beverages throughtout the reception and were dressed in the usual black trousers and white shirts with black tow ties which complimented the wedding theme.
First DanceHold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home,
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl,
Hold me down, and I'll carry you home
Brooke and Julian shared their first dance to Sweet and Low by Augustana, which had a lot of meaning to the couple, and they were watched by their friends and guests.
J.K. Rowling once wrote, "the consequences of our actions are so complicated, so diverse that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed." J.K. Rowling was right. But what most of you don't know is Julian was able to do it. He knew a long time ago that he would find Brooke. When Julian was my age, which was a very, very, very, very long time ago, he went to a county fair, and he met a girl...not Brooke. But they went on a bunch of rides together, including the Octopus. Irrelevant to the story. But that night, Julian felt a crush for the first time, a real crush. Relax, Aunt Brooke. He was my age. So at the end of the night, they decided to break this bumper-car token in half. Julian has kept his half all these years, not because he missed the girl, but because he knew somewhere out there was the other half, his perfect match. And he was right. Today Julian married my Aunt Brooke. She's probably the coolest girl I know and the girl Julian's been waiting for since he broke this bumper-car token in half a long time ago at a county fair. And today, Julian gave me this token. He said he didn't need it anymore because he found his other half. Congratulations, Julian. I think it was worth the wait.
CakeThe cake was white, had several tiers and was decorated with sugar flowers similar to the flowers decorating the room. The cake went against the general very formal and modern black and white theme with statement pink flowers and walls in the reception hall due to it being very girly and containing yellow orichads although they did have hints of pink and unlike most wedding cakes the flowers were two-dimensional.
Brooke's dress was very similar to the first dress she ever designed, which was for Haley's second wedding. It was strapless and contained a tight fit until just above the knees, where it flared out slightly and was covered in ruffles of light white material until the bottom of the dress. It was held in at the waist by a creamy silk belt which had diamonds in the middle. Her hair was in a tight bun which a double hair band, made out of single diamonds, held together.
The bride's bouquet was composed of the same white flowers that decorated the church and the hall, and had at its center a small white rose. At the time of traditional "throw bouquet" of the bride, the bouquet was destroyed by Millie, who caught the bouquet, while she was falling.
Brooke's BookShortly after being proposed to by Julian, Brooke began a book, with all her ideas for her wedding: the dress, the bouquet, the cake, etc. with drawings (by herself), pieces of fabric and photos. After losing her company, Brooke realized that her ideas now cost too much, and Haley convinced her to abandon the book. But Haley then used the book to realize Brooke's dream wedding, and send it to Sylvia, who paid all the expenses.
Wedding DressBrooke had previously dream of designing and making her own wedding dress but couldn't afford it after losing her company. The dress was skin-tight with a sweetheart neckline and was held in along the waist with a ribbon, until the hips of the dress was covered in very intercut details and this similar detail was along the bottom of the dress with some of it moving up along the dress.
BouquetBrooke dreamed that the bouquet was composed of orchids and flowers, and surrounded by silk the flowers were multiple shades of pink. but her bouquet instead were full of white lilies and dark green large leaves
Brooke had designed the cake, white, she wanted, with several tiers and decorated to roses along the bottom of each floor, and on the top level there was a group of flowers topping the cake which was similar to the final cake. Instead the cake contained yellow lilies which were 2D and pale.
