Derek Hough Jokes About Having to Elope After Julianne Hough’s “Incredible” Wedding
What a sweet brother! Derek Hough and Julianne Hough might be the cutest siblings we’ve ever seen. The 32-year-old professional dancer recently gushed to People about his sister’s recent nuptials to NHL player Brooks Laich. We all know that Julianne’s wedding was beautiful (like straight out of a fairytale), but Derek admitted that it makes him hesitant about having his own one day.
“It really was incredible,” he explained. “I was just looking at wedding photos with her now-husband and me and him were like two ladies looking at these photos, like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so beautiful.’ It was amazing, it really was. It was perfect. It was perfection. And I’m like, ‘Shoot, I’m going to have to elope after this. There’s no competing with this wedding. This wedding is like a Nicholas Sparks movie on steroids.’ It really is, it’s incredible.”
We love that he described her wedding like something out of a Nicholas Sparks movie especially because she actually did star in one of his movies. And while Julianne succeeded in planning her dream wedding, we know she’s much more stoked about being married to her dream guy. “Brooks and I kept eye contact the entire ceremony. We never stopped looking at each other,” she said about her nuptials, adding her favorite wedding moment was “kissing each other for the first time as husband and wife as the confetti cannons exploded around us.”
Sounds like a dream! It’s so sweet that she had her friends and family supporting her on her special day. After the ceremony, Derek wrote a sweet post on Instagram about the wedding: “Julianne and Brooks wedding weekend transported everyone to a different era. A timeless, magical, romantic experience that was truly perfect in every way. It captured everyone’s hearts and filled them with more love than we could have hoped for… I was with Julianne hearing her plan it while we were on tour and it truly exceeded my expectations beyond anything I could have imagined.”
