Real Wedding: Brooke Fox & Michael Fox

Small-Town Smash Hit | September 8, 2012


Names Brooke Fox and Michael Fox Live in West Seattle Occupations She’s a morning radio cohost for 92.5 FM; he’s a videographer and producer for How they met Through work: five glasses of wine and a lot of giggling later, they realized they had the same last name and it might be fate Wedding-day weather 90 degrees and sunny Wedding time 4:30 Number of guests 153 Wedding budget $17,000; they went a bit over Their approach to wedding planning A joint venture in fun and ridiculousness, though Brooke drew on her experience as a cohost of the wedding gala Get Hitched Give Hope when choosing vendors Wedding theme A small-town, backyard get-down inspired by Brooke’s hometown of Spirit Lake, Idaho Nontraditional elements The ceremony began with a parade through town, complete with a kilt-wearing drum-line, a marching band led by Brooke’s 68-year-old baton-twirling aunt, jugglers, skateboarders, costumed dogs, a giant American flag magic trick performed by another of the bride’s aunts, the groom on a camel, a 1940 Ford for the bride, and all of the guests Wedding style The bridesmaids chose their own peacock-blue dresses, and the groomsmen were simply told not to show up naked Inventive arrangements Guests were given jokes and had to find the punch line to locate their table Favorite reception moment Their first dance, to Adele’s version of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love”; it was as if time stopped and they stepped into a bubble of love If they knew then what they know now They’d have a better grasp on how much work goes into turning a backyard into a wedding reception The day in three words Us, family, magic Honeymoon Thailand
