Well, the most remarkable runner up from last season’s American Idol chooses the most remarkable day of the year to get married–10-10-10! Yes, yesterday, October 10th, she surprised us all with her marriage to fellow musician Brian Walker in Chicago.
After hearing the news on the show that she had broken up with her longtime boyfriend right before the finale, I would have thought that she’d take some time to focus in on her new career and new-found fame. So you can imagine my surprise a few weeks ago when I read that she was engaged and my near-shock now to see that she’s married a long-time friend that she initially met six years ago. Way to rekindle the flame Crystal!
What’s not a surprise
Totally in sync with her classic Bohemian style, she chose an eco-friendly wedding theme. Looking for every possible way to go eco-chic, here’s how she made it happen:
- Tara Lynn, a designer from Vermont, created Crystal’s wedding gown from hemp and cotton that featured macramé, seashells and beads in a solar-powered studio.
- The reception featured a laughing Buddha cake from Bleeding Heart Bakery, a local organic and sustainable business.
They were married at the club where they met six years ago during Open Mic Night, and her hubbie Brian designed the wedding rings himself. Adding romantic, eco-friendly wedding favors from us would have also been a nice touch if we had been invited to the wedding. But, alas it happened too quickly for us to get involved. However, it’s not too late for you to select one of our bamboo coasters, seed packs or plantable cards for your wedding and go eco-chic like them!
Congrats Crystal and Brian!
