Julianne Hough, Brooks Laich Are Married!
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich are officially husband and wife! The country singer, actress and dancer and her hockey player beau tied the knot on Saturday (July 8).
People reports that Hough and Laich got married in an outdoor ceremony at a venue near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, with 200 family and friends in attendance. Guests included Dancing With the Stars' Mark Ballas, actor Aaron Paul and actress Nina Dobrev; Hough's brother Derek served as a groomsman, while the couple's two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, named Lexi and Harley, acted as ring bearers.
During the wedding, Hough wore a custom-made Marchesa gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, while Laich wore a Brooks Brothers tuxedo. Hough's father Bruce gave her away.
In addition to the wedding ceremony and reception, Hough and Laich's wedding weekend included a Thursday night (July 6) welcome dinner and a Friday (July 7) spent on the lake at Coeur d'Alene Resort.
“I don’t think I ever really necessarily dreamed about my wedding as a kid,” Hough says. “But I know I will always cherish and remember it for the rest of my life.”
Hough and Laich got engaged in August of 2015. The couple began dating in early 2014.
Hough released her self-titled debut country album in 2008; the project contains her Top 20 (No. 18) single "That Song in My Head." She has also competed on and judged Dancing With the Stars and starred in the Footloose remake and the live TV musical version of Grease.
