Congratulations are in order for Christine Brown and David Woolley, who are officially a married couple after tying the knot on Saturday (October 7) in front of 330 guests in what they described as a ‘fairytale’ wedding in Moab, Utah. It was a beautiful weekend for a beautiful couple who deserve their happiness.
The festivities began with a dinner cruise along the Colorado River with friends and family on Friday and continued with an elegant wedding ceremony on Saturday. They said ‘I Do’ under a floral arch overlooking that same Colorado River and had ‘At Last’ by Etta Jones playing as they walked down the aisle together.
They described it as a ‘short and sweet’ ceremony followed by a night to remember under the lights in a decked-out tent. Cocktail hour included sparkling apple cider, champagne, Moscow mules, and mojitos, while the buffet included roast beef, BBQ chicken, cowboy potatoes, baked beans, and corn on the cob.
The couple decided to go all-out on their big day to ensure Christine Brown got the wedding she had always dreamed of. “It’s everything I never thought I would have. I get to walk down the aisle to David, him just looking at me the way that he does, it’s a dream come true,” Christine said of her wedding.
According to PEOPLE, who spoke with the couple ahead of their big day, Danielle Rothweiler was the wedding planner who put it all together. Christine’s white beaded dress came from Boda Bridal, her hair and makeup were done by Eliza Schmidt, and the bridal party’s makeup was done by Cortney Hall.
They also confirmed that the floral design of the wedding was spearheaded by Ali McDermott from Magnolia and Lace. They had two cakes to enjoy – a three-tiered naked cake (as is tradition) and a Darth Vader-themed cake (for the groom, of course). It’s a weekend they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.
“She wants to be able to wear a white dress and walk down the aisle with her dad. She never got to do on her first marriage. She wants all the bells and whistles,” David said of the ceremony. Christine added that they ‘wanted to make it as family-oriented as possible’ with kids and grandkids walking down the aisle.
Christine Brown and David Woolley Proud of Their Natural Love
Christine Brown and David Woolley found one another at the right time. They started dating in December, but Christine didn’t mention her new boyfriend until February and she didn’t reveal his name until one week later – on Valentine’s Day. David popped the big question in April and now they’re a married couple!
“I’m really very lucky, and very happy that someone let her go, because she’s a unicorn,” David said of his new wife. He also talked about his dating struggles after his wife died in 2012. “After my wife passed away, I dated and I just could never find somebody. I knew Christine was ‘the one.’ It just feels so right.”
Christine also gushed over her new husband: “David is just home. I feel like wherever we are together, we just create this amazing unity together. We’re a solid unit, and whatever goes on around us just doesn’t even matter. Being married together just solidifies us together.” The couple couldn’t be happier right now.
Recalling how the couple met online, Christine Brown said it was his ‘beautiful’ profile that caught her attention – filled with ‘all the right pictures’ of him and his family. “It was him with those eyes. I’m like, ‘You know what? I want to be looked at with those eyes for the rest of my life,’” she said of her new husband.
