'Dancing With The Star' alum Brittany Cherry ties the knot with Bryan Agnew in a close-knit ceremony
LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA: Brittany Cherry, a behind-the-scenes choreographer for Season 31 of 'Dancing with the Stars', married her long-term fiancé Bryan Agnew on September 18, 2022. The 28-year-old professional dancer married Netflix Business Affairs' Bryan Agnew in front of 80 guests on Sunday afternoon at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, CA, as confirmed by PEOPLE.
While Jenna Johnson, who is now pregnant, attended the wedding, many of her coworkers were unable to do so because of camera-blocking rehearsals for 'Dancing with the Stars', which begins the day after the ceremony. After the season ends, when Cherry works as a backstage choreographer for the professionals, the pair will go on a lavish European honeymoon. "We're going to stay in San Diego, I think two nights after the wedding and just hang out and relax and be able to put more wind in our sails to go travel and explore."
Who is Bryan Agnew?
Since 2018, Bryan J Agnew has been employed with Netflix's Business Affairs division. The Los Angeles native formerly served as an assistant for United Talent Agency, as per his LinkedIn page. Bryan worked as a bartender at Hospitality Unlimited Inc. and The Fat Dog for 10 months before going into the entertainment business. His first work stints were as a recruiter for Insight Global and a service expert for Talking Rain Beverage in Preston, Washington (Bellevue). After graduating from Kentwood High School, he was accepted to Bellevue College, where he pursued a degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences/Liberal Studies with an Associate of Arts and Sciences (AAS). Later, he graduated from the University of Washington with an LLB degree. According to his Instagram, he does open mics from time to time.
How did Brittany and Bryan meet?
While Stefano Langone was a band member on 'DWTS' in 2017, the two connected through the former 'American Idol' contestant. Bryan, who was Stefano's roommate at the time, introduced the two. Despite the fact that timing wasn't on their side, they reconnected later that year, and in 2020, the 33-year-old proposed to Brittany while driving through Malibu Canyon.
A 'classy' wedding and dancing to 'Love Me Tender' by Elvis Presley
When it came to her wedding gown, the 'Come Dance with Me' starlet trusted her instincts and knew precisely what she wanted. The ballroom dancer desired something classic, graceful, refined, and not too embellished. She went to Kinsey James in West Hollywood to try on all the dresses and ultimately chose the one she found a year before. To complement their simple yet exquisite motif, the groom picked his own custom green suit from Klein Epstein and Parker. "Everything is very classy and my colors are black and white," Brittany shared about her wedding.
The venue also holds personal value for the pair, making it an easy decision for where to say "I do." The La Valencia hotel is a lovely historical structure in La Jolla. It's reminiscent of old Hollywood. It's a pink hotel that shouts sophisticated, joyful, and colorful.
Since music and dancing had brought them together in the first place, they knew it had to play a significant role in their night. Bryan had been rehearsing the Leonardo DiCaprio move from 'Wolf of Wall Street', according to Brittany. "We [didn't have] a choreographed dance, but dance[d] to 'Love Me Tender' by Elvis Presley. This is a super special song. When Bryan and I rekindled in 2017, this song was playing, and it just felt kismet. It was super early on, and it played, and it was a tender moment that we shared and that song, it's just been always so special to us. We [had] his best man's father sing the song live," Brittany revealed to PEOPLE.
Long Stem Disco handled the blooms for the event, while VG Bakery handled the cake. Brittany's wedding planner, Brenda of Benny & Blaire in San Diego, assisted with the big day, where the pair snuck away to a secluded vineyard after the ceremony to celebrate alone before joining their friends to dance the night away.
