Bride opens 20-year-old letter from mum on her wedding day

A young bride received a deeply touching wedding gift from her mother when she unwrapped a 20-year-old letter on her wedding day.

The letter was written when Brooke Blackledge was an 18-month-old baby asleep in her baby bed. She had been adopted by her parents after they discovered they were unable to have biological children.

Her mother Sherry penned the touching note on a piece of her own wedding dress and packed it away in anticipation of her baby daughter's wedding day.


"Being adopted, I wanted her to know how much we loved her and I thought it would be extremely precious when she opened it up on her wedding day," said Sherry.

In the note, she speaks of the great joy baby Brooke brought to the family.

The letter reads: “We just want you to know how much love and happiness you’ve brought to our family...When we were dating, we said if we had a little girl she would be a little Brooke. You are our little Baby Brooke.”

The lovely moment was captured on camera 20 years later, when Brooke married sweetheart Tyler Zugg.
