Handspun Honeys: Brooke + Ben

October 21, 2016

Happy Friday, Honeys!  It has been such a crazy few weeks as we grow ever closer to our very own Happily Ever After!!  To follow along with all our fun wedding adventures, head over to our Instagram and take a look at our wedding hashtag: #happilyeverhandspun !


But enough about us!  Let’s talk about these adorable Honeys!


Brooke and Ben were married on a beautiful sunny day in June.  Brooke had charmed us long ago when we had first been in contact, and we quickly bonded over our love for all things Disney.  It was so exciting to see that many of the sweet details of their wedding were infused with bits of Disney magic!  And I just about fainted watching Brooke ride with her father to the ceremony site in a horse-drawn carriage that clearly rolled straight out of the pages of a fairytale!  Swoon.

One of the most touching parts of the day for us though, was surprisingly watching Brooke open her gifts from Ben before they did their first look.  It was clear as she held up her treasures with the biggest smile that Ben truly understood her and was a good gift-giver to boot.  But it was as she opened her biggest gift that we teared up – as did Brooke, when she realized Ben had given her a beautiful iron sign from Chip + Joanna Gaines’ store, Magnolia that read “I love you to the moon and back.”  Brooke’s huge watery smile told us that this gift meant so much more than just a decoration for their home.  It was a beautiful moment as we all got to witness exactly how wonderful Ben is at loving her, and what an incredible promise she held for their marriage.


The entire day was filled with the kind of happy love that makes you giddy, and Brooke and Ben were glowing as they promised forever in front of their beloved family, friends, and fur baby, Boone!  They kept the party exciting and simultaneously heartfelt throughout the evening, but the true showstopper came when they began to play a song from the Disney animated movie, Tangled.  Guests were invited out under the stars to light wish lanterns that floated up into the air, and it was absolutely the most magical thing I have ever experienced!  We were so grateful Brooke and Ben allowed us to be such an incredible part of their day, and we wish them continued bliss as newlyweds!
