It’s Magazine Monday! And today we’re swept away by Brooklyn Fullmer and Cory Calvert’s wedding from our glossy pages! Enjoy a closer look at this celebration filled with love, dancing and tacos!
DANCING ON AIR // August 7, 2018
Cory and I met through social media. I was in L.A. dancing professionally, so the timing wasn’t right, but then in February of 2017 we had our first date. I thought Cory was handsome, tall, kind and had the best smile. I loved that he opened my door and still does to this day. Cory’s first impression of me was that I was talented and beautiful but also kind and humble, too
Cory gave me a dream proposal. He was “out of town” and I was going to a photo shoot with my sister Kenna. The photo shoot involved a helicopter ride to an exclusive spot on top of a mountain. As we got closer to landing, I noticed someone standing on the peak. Then I realized it was Cory with a bouquet of roses ready to propose. Cory is deathly afraid of heights, so he conquered his fear that day. When I got out of the helicopter, I started running to Cory and completely fell to my face through three feet of snow. This is so classic for me. I pulled myself together, said yes and we cruised off into the pink sky back to the airport where our families were waiting.
Because I have been dancing since I was 6, I’ve had hundreds of costumes and dresses. I wanted something unique for my wedding day. Pritchétt Bridal shipped the dress of my dreams from Barcelona. I saw one black-and-white photo of it and knew it was the one. It was a risk to choose it without seeing it in person, but it was the best risk I have ever taken. The bodice was fitted but the sleeves had movement. It was so fun to wear.
One of the most memorable parts of the big day was dancing for Cory with my best friends! Most of them are on “Dancing With The Stars” or “So You Think You Can Dance” and we did one 45-minute rehearsal three months before the wedding. Somehow we pulled it off. I don’t know who loved it more — Cory, or me and my girls!
PICTURE PERFECT All of Brooklyn’s married friends gave her the same advice: Make sure you eat the food at your wedding! Brooklyn and Cory enjoyed amazing street tacos before they spent the night greeting guests at their perfectly-lit Thanksgiving Point reception. One of Brooklyn’s signature details was the personalized denim jacket that read “Mrs. Calvert.” Cory’s suit had a personal touch, too, with the couple’s name and wedding date stitched inside his suit jacket.
