Brooke Hatfield

Use 5 words to describe what your own wedding would be

  • soft, romantic, twinkling, natural, lively

What celebrity wedding would you have wanted to be an attendee at?

  • I would love to have been an attendee at Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s wedding. Not only were the venue and her dress beautiful, but also with how great of dancers the two are, I’m sure the reception was the party of the year!

What is your favorite wedding detail or trend?

  • My favorite wedding detail or trend is when the bridal party and guests set off floating lanterns at night. I think it is such a romantic, breathtaking moment that really brings everyone together!

What do you like to do when you’re not dreaming about beautiful weddings and events?

  • I love to stay active and enjoy being outdoors! I’m also a huge Badger fan, so I love to tailgate with friends and go to games at Camp Randall and the Kohl Center. I love to do any sort of DIY projects and also love to practice calligraphy in my free time.

While it is the couples’ pathway to the alter, your guests will hopefully appreciate the journey to their seats as well, signifying the start to a wonderful day. If your ceremony will be held indoors, there are many details that can be added to your venue to create the picture perfect aisle. Check out these ideas to spruce up the walkway to “I Do”.

Walking Down the Aisle: Outdoor (1 of 2)

The moment has finally come for the most important steps a person makes on their wedding day, down the aisle. The design of the aisle really sets the tone for the rest of the day and can be done in a variety of different ways. Specifically for outdoor weddings, the use of greenery and floral arrangements to center the walk to the alter can be spectacular. Depending on venue, wood and other nature aspects can add a wonderful touch of the outdoors to fit your wedding theme location. Check out these ideas for lining the aisle with beautiful designs for that pivotal moment on your wedding day.
