On July 30th, Siempre Weddings had the honor to host Dancing with the Stars’ Brandon Armstrong and his sweetheart Brylee Ivers as they celebrated their love. The dancing couple’s joy was infectious, and it was an absolute delight to have them.
Before they were smiling at each other beneath our Siempre rotunda, Brandon and Brylee’s love story started on Instagram, during a dry dating spell for both of them.
"I was going on a few dates and they were all lame," Armstrong told PEOPLE magazine last March. "They were terrible. I downloaded an app that's similar to Tinder but for our Church to be funny. I was scrolling through and saw her, but I was too embarrassed to message her. So, I DMed her on Instagram instead, and she ghosted me."
"I was trying to be cool," Brylee confessed.
Their first date was at The Cheesecake Factory. Meeting in person for the first time was surprisingly easy — and that’s how they knew that their love would only continue to blossom.
Brandon and Brylee had a gorgeous wedding — white and blush colors with pops of fresh greenery. After a special religious ceremony at a different location, the adorable couple exchanged vows beneath our iconic Siempre rotunda, and enjoyed an elegant reception in our Always Room, which blended beautifully with their white and blush roses. They also had a stunning cake, almond-flavored and adorned with a white bow that matched Brylee’s lovely wedding gown.
Speaking of food, reception guests indulged in a scrumptious party spread provided by Siempre’s own in-house chef and fabulous catering team. This was just one of the ways we were honored to help make Brandon and Brylee’s reception unforgettable.
But what made the wedding truly special was the presence of all the couple’s loved ones. Their wedding party included 18 of their closest friends and family. Brandon’s fellow Dancing with the Stars colleagues also came to support him on his special day, including Britt Stewart, Emma Slater, Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy, Witney Carson, Alan Bersten, and Lindsay Arnold.
Of course, the wedding would not have been complete without dancing, and the happy couple delivered with both a first dance and a special choreographed dance.
It was also an honor for the wedding and our venue to be featured in the renowned PEOPLE Magazine. In their article, PEOPLE describes our wedding destination as “a modern venue tucked away in the Draper, Utah, mountains.” They also provide some gorgeous PEOPLE Exclusive photos of Brandon and Brylee’s happy day, including some stunning shots of the iconic Siempre rotunda where the couple exchanged their vows, and a glimpse into our glamorous Always Room, where Brandon, Brylee, and all their closest friends and family enjoyed the wonderful reception.
“It was such an honor to be able to work with such an amazing and sweet couple,” said Jennie Peterson, director of operations at Siempre. “And to have their Siempre wedding story featured in People magazine was unreal! Doing events for 14 years and I never thought I would see my couple, let alone my venue, featured.”
We loved helping Brandon, Brylee, and their guests have the best and most magical experience possible, and wish them every happiness as they build their new life together.
