Next up on our featured #HCTBrides is Kristen.  

Kristen met her husband Brandon on a dating app.  It was the right circumstances that led Kristen to Brandon.  Kristen was supposed to be heading out of town and was planning on disconnecting from the online dating world.  However, her flight got cancelled and she wasn't able to fly out for the next 3 days!  When Kristen returned back to her apartment, she found Brandon's profile and messaged him.  The two hit it off instantly!  She left for her family trip and while in Colorado, the pair exchanged messages the whole duration of her trip.  As soon as she returned, she and Brandon got together.  The rest is history! A year and a half later, Brandon asked Kristen's father for permission for his daughter's hand in marriage.  Months before the proposal, Brandon had received Kristen's grandmother's wedding ring stone from her father.  How sweet!  The couple planned their wedding at a sentimental location, Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, which is where they had their second date.  The happily married couple now lives in a Western suburb of Chicago, where they are the proud parents of an adorable bunny named Marten.  

Check out this adorable couple's photos: 

Kristen looked beautiful in her elegant floral Vega organza Rebecca Ingram dress.  Featuring a v-neckline, v-back and chic, covered buttons trailing down the back to the hem of the train.  Simply beautiful! 

Featuring a flowy, chiffon skirt and a high jewel neckline, Kristen's bridesmaids looked stylish in their violet Mori Lee bridesmaid dresses.  

From all of us at Here Comes the Bride, we wish Kristen and Brandon a lifetime of love and happiness!  Thank you for being a #HCTBride!
