The lifestyle of football heroes has never held any appeal to Danielle Berry, but Nick Sorensen of the Cleveland Browns not only tackled Berry’s opposition to dating a professional football player, he also won her heart– a feat which led to a walk down the aisle on February 27– a date determined by the number proudly displayed on Sorensen’s jersey.
According to the Washington Post, 120 friends and family members gathered at St. Aloysius Church to witness the bride– dressed in a classic white, strapless gown and a lace-lined veil– exchange vows with the man she first met at a Coldplay concert in October 2008. That chance encounter would bring about a proposal in October 2009.
After the I do’s, the newlyweds and their guests convened at the Carnegie Institution for a post-nuptial fete featuring a nod to the 1940’s, thanks to event planner Laura Weatherly of Engaging Affairs. As attendees sipped spirits served by bartenders from a speakeasy-style hot spot, the bride stepped out on to the dance floor in a pair of scarlet-soled, sparkling silver Christian Louboutins to sway to sounds of Jason Mraz’s “You and I Both” during a first dance with her newly pronounced husband.
