Math Homework to Marriage: Hannah and Brody's Meticulous Matrimony at A'BULAE

From a wooden arch built by the groom to five dozen pearl buttons on the bride's train, it was the perfect formula for an unforgettable affair.

Theirs is a love story built on persistence and mathematics. Hannah Childs and Brody Ziegler met at Gustavus Adolphus College; at the time, Hannah had a boyfriend. It was Brody’s insistence on being Snapchat friends, and his math prowess as a physics major so he could help Hannah with her homework, that eventually won her over. Fast-forward a few years and a short engagement: The pair married under a seven-sided wooden arch built by the groom—to be reused as their bed’s headboard. Greenery with pastel-hued flowers and pops of red complemented A’BULAE’s ballroom. Every detail was well-thought-out and meticulous, down to the five dozen pearl buttons on Hannah’s train.
