Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough is used to the attention that comes with slaying on the dance floor, but when her new husband, Brooks Laich, caught the first glimpse of her in her wedding dress, she was the star of the show in every sense of the word.
According to Country Living, the newlyweds shared a special "first look" moment right before their wedding ceremony began, and a video from People shows the NHL player literally falling to his knees when he turns around and sees his soon-to-be wife in her wedding gown for the first time. I mean, come on. Does it get any more precious than this?! His face is absolutely priceless, and the moment is intimate and sweet.
While most of the time the wedding focus is all on the bride, this video gives us a different perspective by focusing on the groom's reaction, which completely captures the genuine love between the pair. Watch the People video below to see the special moment for yourself.
The couple wed July 8 in an outdoor ceremony at Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho with 100 of their closest family and friends in attendance. People reports that Hough chose the location because it's where she used to spend summers when she was growing up.
“When I introduced Brooks to the lake, he fell in love with this special spot, and we knew this was where we wanted to raise our family and grow old together,” Julianne told People. “It just felt right to be married here.”
