Anna and Dean's lovely outfits perfectly match their desert wedding.

Anna's wedding ensemble is the perfect match for her desert wedding ceremony. She wears a lace gown with very little train so the dress doesn't get stuck on the terrain. The monochromatic look is broken up wonderfully by a gorgeous turquoise necklace. Her bouquet is a beautiful succulent. And cowboy boots finish the look.

Dean wears a blue suit with a multi-texture notch-lapel jacket. His rose-colored bolo tie adds the perfect hint of color.

  1. Hello! I would love to get married where Anna and Dean did or somewhere similar in Borrego springs, such as the Borrego valley inn. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Cindy–Anna and Dean were married at the Anza Borrego State Park Amphitheater, which is accessed from Borrego Palm Canyon Campground. It’s a gorgeous venue. I’ve never stayed at the Inn but that would be amazing as well. Are you in the planning stages? When is your wedding date?
