Brooke Eden on Trisha Yearwood Officiating Her Wedding


Brooke Eden is looking back at her and wife Hilary Hoover‘s wedding – which country legends and husband-wife duo Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks were a part of.

“I mean, that was absolutely insane,” Eden, 35, exclusively told Us Weekly at CMA Fest on Friday, June 7. “Tricia and Garth have been such incredible supporters (of) both Hilary and I, our relationship, my career, her career and all the things.”

Eden went on to detail how Underwood, 59, became the couple’s wedding officiant, noting that after she and the country icon sang “She’s In Love With the Girl” at the Grand Ole Opry in 2021, Yearwood wanted to help out in any way possible.

“(Hilary and I) had just gotten engaged. So we got done with the Opry and we just had so many emotions going on, and Trisha was like, ‘Girl, what am I doing at this wedding? Am I a flower girl? Am I a bridesmaid? Do I officiate? Like what can I do? Do I make my amazing famous chicken?’ Because (she) can cook!”

She continued, “And somehow it turned into that she would officiate. We (asked) and she was like, ‘I would be so honored.’ So then we were at their house one day and we were just kind of talking about how we wanted the ceremony to go, and Garth walked in and we were like, ‘You wanna sing us down the aisle?’ And he was like, ‘I would be honored. What song?’ And we were like, ‘To Make You Feel My Love.’ And yeah, it was wild.”

As for the next step in her and Hoover’s journey as a couple, Eden told Us that she’s looking forward to navigating parenthood with her wife.
