Dancing With The Stars pro dancer Brandon Armstrong married Brylee Ivers in Utah on July 30. Here are all the details about the romantic wedding.
Pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars Brandon Armstrong married Brylee Ivers in an outdoor ceremony on Saturday, July 30 in Utah. Brandon was born and raised in California, but later moved to Utah where he began to dance at age 12, and trained with Mark, Corky, and Shirley Ballas. After traveling all over the world to compete professionally, he joined Dancing With The Stars as a troupe member for season 24 in 2017. In 2018, he became a professional dance partner on the show, and placed 10th with Tinashe. He has competed on Dancing With The Stars season 28 (placing 12th with Mary Wilson), season 29 (placing 9th with Jeannie Mai), and season 30 (placing 10th with Kenya Moore). Brandon was also a runner-up as a mentor for Artyon Celestine on Dancing With The Stars: Juniors in 2018.
Brandon, 28, and Brylee, 24, a social media manager, met in early 2021 when Brandon DMed her on Instagram. He had seen Brylee on a dating app for their church, but was too embarrassed to message her there, so he chose Instagram instead. They exchanged messages for a month before they met in person for their first date at The Cheesecake Factory. In October 2021, they confirmed their relationship. Brandon proposed on March 7, 2022.

In a People exclusive, Dancing With The Stars pro Brandon and Brylee shared all of the details about their wedding, which took place on Saturday, July 30 in Utah. The couple participated in a religious ceremony earlier in the day, and then exchanged their own vows in front of about 125 of their closest family members and friends at Siempre, a modern venue located in the Draper, Utah mountains. Brandon explained, “Because so many people get married in Utah so young, we wanted something that was a little bit different than the traditional church, chapel wedding.” They also had a First Look ahead of their wedding day. Brandon admitted that he is “not a crier,” but when he saw Brylee for the first time in her “simple and timeless” wedding gown, he “bawled.” The dress was designed by Alta Moda Bridal. The Dancing With The Stars pro said that obviously he knew that Brylee would choose a beautiful dress, and he “didn’t have any really defining or super important feelings about what I wanted the dress to look like. I was just happy that it was something that was beautiful and that she felt confident in. Everything was so, so good!”
Brylee walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The bridal party consisted of 18 groomsmen and bridesmaids on each side. After the intimate ceremony, the couple had dinner with their guests. They also danced their first dance to Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.’s hit “Best Part.” They then headed into a bigger celebration with 500 guests, including Brandon’s fellow Dancing With The Stars pro dancers, Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson, Jenna Johnson, Britt Stewart, Emma Slater, and Alan Bersten. The wedding cake was five tiers and almond-flavored, made by Alessandra. Brandon, Brylee and their guests danced all night to early 2000s and current hits played by DJ Ricky Barrera. The newlyweds will travel to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon. Brandon added, “I’m excited that I can commit to her and express my love to her and that I can do it in a way that I think is right. A way that is good and loving and old school. I’m excited to show people she’s the love of my life and that I’m committed to her.”
