Bewitching Halloween Wedding: Kristen & David in Orange, CA

Kristen and David first met in a bar in Downtown Fullerton. "It's a magical story, really," Kristen joked. After dating for nearly two years, David proposed during a camping trip at Casper's Wilderness Park. "We were sitting around the camp and he was getting all fidgety and nervous; he didn't know quite what to do with himself," recalled Kristen. "He went into the tent for 'something' and called me in after him and popped the question. It was so sweet and a very special moment for the both of us."
