> if(requestedWidth Jodi Brooks wears an Alençon lace gown designed by her aunt who's known simply as Brooks in the fashion-design community.

"To have someone you love design your dress, and know how much they love what they do, made for a really special experience," says Brooks, a reporter with KCNC-Channel 4 in Denver."I knew it was going to be something elegant.I'm not 22 and didn't want to be swallowed up by a dress."
The designer won't let anyone but her niece call her "Debbie."Known simply as Brooks in the fashion-design community, she specializes in custom clothing and has been plying her craft in Denver for more than three decades.For the past several years, she's worked out of a LoDo atelier where she often hosts trunk shows of work by other couture designers.
Knowing how much effort goes into each gown, Brooks works with just a handful of brides each year but was eager to do a gown for her niece.Jodi is model-tall and slim, which made the project all the more rewarding.
The reporter and her aunt collaborated for almost a year on the wedding dress, from shopping for lace and linings to the multiple fittings."From the start to the finish, we watched it grow," Brooks says.
Brooks embroidered Jodi and Rodney's names inside her gown.
Brooks has designed many custom bridal ensembles but says this one was special because of her closeness to the bride, and because she was able to dress other members of the wedding party as well.For the rehearsal dinner, she created a chic black and white floral dress for Jodi, and for the wedding, Brooks designed a dress for Jodi's mother, and a silk organza dress for herself.
Mothers of the bride often have trouble finding appropriate attire, Brooks says."They want to be stylish and sophisticated, and not come off as matronly."
Both Jodi and Brooks agree it was a labor of love."My aunt is such a special person in my life that to have her do this made me feel wonderful," Jodi says.
It's a feeling she's had before.Jodi recalls a trip to Italy during which she got compliments on wearing a Brooks creation at a music industry event."Every time she's made me something it is in her own vision, but reflects my style too."
For all of the fuss about the dress, however, Jodi doesn't forget to point out that the real high point of the process was "marrying the right guy."

Watch out, Denver, she's back and better than ever!Jodi Brooks, a Denver native and graduate of Cherry Creek High School, joined the CBS4 team from WEWS TV in Cleveland, Ohio, where she most recently was the "Live on Five" Investigative Reporter.Jodi now reports for CBS4 News at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Coming home to Denver is a dream come true for this National Emmy award-winning journalist.Jodi is known as a hard hitting investigative reporter and has won numerous local, state, and national awards for her reporting.
Jodi says she never knew her potential as a journalist and certainly never anticipated such satisfaction from her career.She graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and started as a reporter in Wausau, Wisconsin, at WAOW-TV (ABC).She would eventually move to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and report for WRCB-TV (NBC).Next it was onto Mobile, Alabama, as an anchor/reporter at WPMI-TV (NBC) and then Cleveland, Ohio, as an investigative reporter at WEWS-TV (ABC).
While in Mobile, Jodi gained national attention for her efforts to help mothers who were not able to care for their new babies.Sickened by a story about a mother who had drowned her baby in a toilet, Jodi wanted to make a difference.She convinced local leaders to allow mothers to drop off their unwanted babies at hospital emergency rooms, without fear of prosecution for neglect and abandonment -- no questions asked.
Alabama lawmakers would eventually pass the "Jodi Brooks Law," and now nearly every state in the country has followed, including Colorado.Jodi won a National Emmy for her efforts and has appeared on several talk shows including "Oprah" and "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."She's also been featured in numerous magazines including People, Time, Newsweek, and Redbook.
So what's next?A made-for-TV movie is in the works.Jodi is working with writers and producers in Los Angeles on a Lifetime Televison movie based on her efforts to save unwanted newborns.Stay tuned for a release date in the next year or so.
In her spare time, Jodi enjoys running.She's completed four marathons.You can also catch her in the boxing gym.But the best thing for Jodi about being home in Denver is spending time with her family and friends she's missed while working on her TV career.
Jodi says, "The train stops here!There's simply no place like home and working for CBS4 is a dream come true."
