Brooks Laich and Julianne Hough: Married!
Brooks Laich plays professional hockey for a living.
But the athlete just made his most impressive score to date, very far away from the ice…
… by marrying Julianne Hough!
In romantic news broken by People Magazine, Laich and the Dancing with the Stars veteran exchanged vows in front of approximately 200 guests on Saturday afternoon.
The intimate affair was held outside near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
And Hough sounds pretty darn psyched about it.
“I don’t think I ever really necessarily dreamed about my wedding as a kid,” Hough told the aforementioned publication, adding:
“But I know I will always cherish and remember it for the rest of my life.”
Hough reportedly donned a Custom Marchesa gown for her big day, along with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. She was given away by her dad.
In keeping with his name, meanwhile, Brooks suited up in a Brooks Brothers tuxedo.

As for close friends and family members?
These guests sat on wooden pews for the outdoor ceremony; they were surrounded by roses and tulips with flower boxes filled with billowing blooms, wild grasses and seasonal foliage.
“It was really important to me that we had our ceremony outdoors,” explained Laich. “Julianne and I are very adventurous and free and wanted the setting to be in nature.”
Among the famous names on hand to help the stars celebrate were Derek Hough, Aaron Paul, Mark Ballas and Nina Dobrev.
Hough and Laich’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Lexi and Harley, even sported flowered collars for the ceremony and served as ring bearers.
Hough and Laich announced their engagement in August 2015 after dating for about a year and a half.
“We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love,” Hough wrote as a caption to an image of her in her man’s arms (below).
She later told E! News:
“When I met him it was kind of like, Yeah, I knew and I think he knew too. We kind of knew it was going to happen.”
The question now, of course, is whether wedding night sex happened between the couple.
We wouldn’t usually pry in such a manner, but Hough may have been the most famous virgin alive over the past several years.
She always said she was saving herself for marriage.
And now she’s married!
So we’re guessing she and Laich are pretty tired today. If you catch our drift!
We send the bride and groom nothing but our very best wishes.
