2014 Real MidSouth Weddings
Brooke Gustafson and Michael House were united in marriage on October 4, 2014. The bride is the daughter of Keith and Kathy Gustafson of Hernando, Mississippi. The groom is the son of Clarence and Ruthie House of Horn Lake, Mississippi.
Michael proposed on March 27, 2014, with a little help from his colleagues at the Hernando Fire Department. He and two engine crews surprised Brooke at her work by sounding the sirens and asking for her to come outside.
The ceremony was held at the home of Keith and Kelly Gustafson in Hernando, Mississippi, and was officiated by Brian Tillman. The couple wanted a faith-based wedding, and the bride painted several scripture related props to show Christ’s love for them and their love for one another.
For something new, the bride wore a fit-and-flare dress by Stella Yorke with lots of lace and beads. She borrowed her mother’s 10-year wedding anniversary band, as well as a ring from her father for something old. She wrote “I do” in blue marker on the bottom of her shoes.
A reception followed, where family and friends were treated to a chicken dinner with potatoes, cabbage and green beans. There was also a four-tier cream cake with white chocolate, strawberry and funfetti.
Following a honeymoon in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the couple resides in Hernando, Mississippi.
