In 2016, on a warm December evening, Brooks proposed in front of their Christmas tree. The couple chose the Sunrise Mansion in Charleston for their ceremony and reception and had their guests seated in a circular pattern under a shaded tree for their ceremony.

The bride wore a modern Rita Vinieris Alyne wedding gown and double pear-shaped loop earrings by Verstolo. She completed her look with a blue diamond bracelet that belonged to the groom’s late aunt.

The bridesmaids wore blush chiffon gowns. The groom decided to honor his grandfather George Farmer by wearing a white tuxedo jacket with a black bow tie.

The flower arrangements included a mix of greenery, pops of magnolia, hydrangeas, and roses.

The bride was escorted by her father, while Christi Miller played the piano. They were married by Rev. Michael Atkinson in a short, sweet, and loving ceremony.

At the reception, the couple shared their first dance to Beyoncé’s “Die With You” sung by the bride’s sister Mica Spratt, the sun was setting in the background. After some dancing, the groom surprised the bride with an impromptu performance of “Forever” by Chris Brown with all their friends and family surrounding them.

Guests were served a late-night snack and a West Virginia favorite: pepperoni rolls. Charleston’s Spring Hill Bakery created several small round cakes that were displayed on clear glass cake stands, while the two-tier wedding cake was displayed on a round oak stand.

The couple went to Maui, Hawaii, for their honeymoon. They now live in Charleston where Caitlin is the director of operations at Thomas Health, and Brooks is a financial advisor at Edward Jones Investments.
