Real Brides: Crystal

David and I met in 2007 in Portland, Oregon. At the time, I was living in San Francisco and David was living in Portland. In 2010, I moved to Portland for work and our friendship gradually developed into romance. Since that time, David and I have shared many adventures and passions including our love of music, travel, nature and spending time with friends. On our 8th anniversary together we exchanged vows under Mt. Hood surrounded by our family and closest friends. The Gown: I first noticed my Moonlight bridal dress online. I went to my local bridal store, Ania Bridal, and tried on several dresses, but I couldn't get the Moonlight dress out of my head! I decided to have them special order the Moonlight dress for me. When I tried the dress on my friend and I immediately knew it was the one! The train is long and luxurious and the dress has a beautiful sparkle to it that catches the eye. I couldn't be happier with my experience! Photographer: Mosca Photography
