Simple & Elegant…


Brooke & Peter Riky • 24th October 2010

Nine years ago, Peter, then 19, and 16-year-old Brooke met through mutual friends. In the truest of love stories, they have been together ever since. 

For her 17th birthday, Peter bought Brooke a tiny diamond ring, assuring her that one day he would buy her a bigger diamond when they got engaged. And seven years later he did… a beautiful princess cut diamond ring that he gave her during an unexpected proposal on a gondola in Venice when they were travelling through Europe.

Wanting to ensure that the proposal was a complete surprise, Peter had hidden the ring in the couple’s video camera bag. Brooke remembers that it was very romantic despite the gondolier yelling at Peter for rocking the boat when he got down on one knee!

After months of planning, and despite an exhausting few days due to some last minute hitches, Brooke was ecstatic when her wedding day finally arrived.

Brooke’s cousin (and best friend) was her chief bridesmaid, another close friend and Peter’s sister were bridesmaids, and Peter’s niece made a pretty junior bridesmaid. Reading a beautiful letter from Peter made for a wonderful start to Brooke’s day.

Brooke walked down the aisle with her dad, who was so concerned that he might accidentally stand on her dress that he was more nervous than the bride! As soon as Brooke and Peter saw one another, they couldn’t stop smiling in sheer delight. The couple agree that their wedding day was perfect, and everything that they had imagined it would be. 

Their bridal party and families ensured that everything ran smoothly, and Brooke and Pete felt so lucky that they got to share the day with all the people that mean so much to them.
