Real bride Anna and her husband Hayden had dreamed of a November destination wedding in Mexico. They wanted something casual, fun, and celebratory, more party than formal event.
Enter COVID. The pandemic left a quarantine sized question mark in their plans. Unsure of when family and friends would be able to travel again, they decided to elope in the backyard of Anna’s family home. The Washington Tri-Cities are beautiful any time of the year, but in June the hills behind Anna’s mom’s house are golden. With sweeping views and the most beautiful light, they celebrated their love in the place they call home.
In less than a month Anna and Hayden planned a beautiful wedding. With a brilliant team of vendors, they were able to focus on the things they love (complete with fireball shots in the desert, and hot dogs). Their adoration and excitement for their lives ahead shine in every picture.
Anna wears the Celeste Wrap dress, a great option for brides ordering online, or working on a tight timeline. Just wrap to fit and you’re good to go, making it easy for those who are unable to attend fittings in person. We love how Anna has styled the dress to reflect her personality and creative spirit.
Thank you to Anna and Hayden for sharing these gorgeous images with us, and congratulations!
