It was eight years ago when Carina met her husband Zach. On their first date, they drove around Portland, Oregon whilst the groom pointed out his favourite spots in the city. They shared their first kiss in a park overlooking the skyline. “The rest is history” Carina told us.
Both being food and wine lovers, the couple decided to marry at the Montage in Healdburg, California surrounded by their loved ones. Carina fell in love with the natural and woodsy landscape which complimented the whimsical romantic Alexandra gown she had found whilst searching through Pinterest.
“This may sound funny, but I based the style of my wedding around the dress!” Carina actually had picked out her gown years before getting engaged. She fell in love with our Alexandra gown online and discovered Dana Harel designs shortly after. The bride was thrilled when she discovered that one of the boutiques in the US that stocked our gowns was only a couple hours drive from her. She booked the appointment immediately, and tried on some other dresses but her heart was set on the xx from the beginning.
Congratulations to this beauty! We are so happy for you. Discover Carina’s gallery below:
