Real Brides: Selina

I met my husband while we were both students at the University of Texas at Austin. His fraternity was having a meeting/gathering at one of the brother's apartments, who happened to be dating my best friend at the time. Her then-boyfriend had told her to come over since everyone was just hanging out, but she did not want to go alone. So she woke me up from a nap and asked me to go with her! I ended up talking to him the entire night. The rest is history. It was the first day I ever went to go look at wedding dresses. I had just planned to do some "looking" and wasn't anticipating finding the dress so soon. As soon as I put it on, I felt BEAUTIFUL and could not stop smiling. Everything about it was perfect from the lace, flowing tulle, and its elegant simplicity. I knew instantly that this was THE dress. Photo: Jennifer Ryals Photography
