Real Brides: Chelsea

I met my husband at a mutual friends birthday party up in Cleveland, OH. I don't think our paths would have ever crossed unless we both went to the party that night since we lived 45 mins away from each other. The party was at a small brewery and we were all in the small back party room. As soon as he (Bill) walked in he caught my eye, the night passed and I was talking to one of our mutual friends and she mentioned to me that he thought I was cute and I caught his eye. As the night passed he made his way over to me and we got lost in conversation the rest of the night. We went on our first date a week later and well the rest is history! I knew my Moonlight dress was the one almost right away. I remember it being one of the few first dresses I tried on that day and even though I didn't stop trying on dresses right after, I kept going back to it and tried it on 3-4 more times after trying on other gowns. My mom loved it right away and kept saying how it completed my body shape and everything I wanted in a gown (sweetheart top and low back). The "wow" factor for both of us was the long beautiful train, the way it laid so perfectly and majestically really sold the dress for us! What I also loved about the dress was the beautiful lace design but then there was a small pop of sparkle in the beading on the bust, straps and back, it gave the dress a extra bit of dazzle. I'm so happy with my purchase of my gown and will treasure wearing that dress forever! :) Photographer:
