While the Bridezillas reboot is back, one recent celebrity bride had to think very hard to recall whether she even had a “bridezilla-worthy” moment on her wedding day. In a new interview with InStyle, lovebirds Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich looked back on their wedding day and shared what they enjoy most as recently-weds.
“Oh man … I’m looking around at Brooks right now,” Hough replied. “What was I a bridezilla about? Anything?”
“The only thing I think you were a bridezilla about—if I was to use that term—was cutting back the trees at the lake house,” Laich replied of the lake house where they married. “That was really the only moment where I was like, this is a little irrational.”
I wholeheartedly agree with everything @brookslaich said. @joesmith.la your presence, words, and love not only touched Brooks and I so deeply, but truly affected all of our friends and family. You truly have a gift from god, and he shines through in everything you do. We are so grateful that we will have this moment for the rest of our lives and that we get to share it with you. Our amazing friend #Repost @brookslaich ・・・ I want to thank my dear friend and pastor @joesmith.la for blessing my wife and I with his presence, advice, and service when he married us in July. The ceremony was the single greatest moment of my life and I am so grateful you chose to spend it with us! You are the man pal, the world needs more people like you and the blessings you share! #godbless
Hough, herself, laughed off the incident. “That was the only thing, and it was literally only a couple of days before the wedding,” she added. “And that only happened because Mr. Man over here forgot to do the spring clean of the trees.”
As previously reported, the couple exchanged vows in July 2017, in a stunning outdoor ceremony at Lake Coeur d’Alene in Northern Idaho, where the actress spent summers with her family. Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes subsequently spoke to The Knot about Hough’s bridal beauty look, while Riawna Capri colored and styled the bride’s tresses for the big day.
Counting down the minutes until I get my New Years Kiss @brookslaich! 2017 was incredibleI’ve made my goals for 2018 and I’m working on my vision board, I can’t wait for the fresh start that comes with a new year! What are you all most excited for in 2018?! Drop a comment and tell me all the awesome things you’re going to accomplish, see and do this year! :@sarahfalugostyle
Since then, the pair has enjoyed an extended honeymoon in the Seychelles as well as an African safari in Kenya, followed by a recent romantic getaway to Paris. (Ooh la la!)
“I hope we’re in the honeymoon stage forever,” Hough said in the same interview. “Really, you can create whatever phase you want, and I think we both realize that the life that we want to live is the honeymoon phase. We want to constantly push ourselves so that we continue to grow, be attracted to each other, be spontaneous with each other, and find the little joys. When you first start dating, nobody’s poop stinks, you know? It’s a whole mindset, so just do what you did at the beginning if you don’t want it to end.”
Both spouses revealed what they love most about marriage—including key learnings. “What’s kind of cool is that we’re evolving together. In the past, when you’ve gone through growth stages in life, we’ve been on your own. Now, we get to do it together,” she continued. “There have been a lot of things that we’ve probably each learned about ourselves that we didn’t know before. Brooks will tell you, when we first got together, his world was all sports and not super artistic. But since he’s been around me and my brother and our friends here in L.A., he’s had a whole new expression of artistry. For me, I’ve become much more grounded. I feel like I’ve kind of lived up in the clouds. I have a little bit more structure in my life now, which is really amazing.”
He added, “Now that we’re married, we’re a team everywhere. It’s not just her life there and my life here; it’s that I represent her everywhere I go and she represents me everywhere she goes. Even though, really, we end up going to everything together.”
