American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox recently announced that she is a newlywed and marriedÂ fellow musician and longtime friend Brian Walker over the weekend.Â Her quick engagement was a surprise, but Crystal affirms she has never been happier.Â People Magazine is now revealing the exclusive details from her very nontraditional wedding.
As reported by People, CrystalÂ wore a unique earth-friendly dress.Â The dress was made from organic, hemp and cotton materials designed by Vermont designer Tara Lynn.Â The dress is a one of a kind.Â The designer revealed, “The gown is a simple princess line with an open back; a machine-knit hemp twine strap crisscrosses in back.”Â Crystal was over the moon with the results of the dress.Â Says Crystal, “I gave Tara Lynn the base ideas of what I wanted, and in three weeks, she created a beautiful gown made of hemp and cotton, with a handmade macramÃ© and bead sunflower design on the front.Â The train of the dress is a handmade design of hemp twine, sea shells, and beads, some of which came from pieces of sentimental jewelry.â€
Crystal and Brian recited their vows at the Chicago Cafe.Â The cafe is sentimental to the pair because it is where they first met six years ago.Â
Especially unique are the rings that the pair chose.Â Crystal says, “There are no diamonds to be found as we don’t believe in the violence and injustice that occurs within the diamond trade industry.”Â Crystal’s ring is a 1.1-carat princess cut ruby ringÂ designed by Brian and crafted by Traci Coughlin and Steve Quick Jewelers.Â Crystal also revealed to People, “Both rings feature the masonry symbol, an infinity 8, and the Sanskrit symbol for the sound â€˜omâ€™ and a personal design that for us represents three: Brian, Crystal, and Tony.â€Â Crystal’s son, Tony, also served as the ring bearer.
