Dante and Anna are from Chicago, but have history together in the desert. From concerts and festivals, to the proposal, the desert is a part of them. They traveled from Chicago to Moab, for their wedding day. They were surrounded by loving friends and family who also traveled similar distances to be there. The whole day was grooving, with a fantastic playlist for each part of their wedding weekend.
Before the wedding, we buzzed over to Arches National Park to get some photos and footage in front of Turret Arch. It was about 100 degrees, and the first really hot day of summer. However, Dante carried water for his bride, and Anna had a parasol, and we had a great time. I love when people are flexible and face the elements cheerfully. Multiple times, they had to scramble up boulders in their finest for that perfect shot, and they did it so well.
We then headed back to Moab Under Canvas for the wedding. What a beautiful venue that is! You have gorgeous views of the La Sal Mountains, Arches National Park, Gemini Bridges road. It is lovely. Anna and Dante wrote heart felts vows bursting with humor and sincerity. It was gorgeous. And then the dancing. The dancing was amazing.
And I must mention that Anna's hair was gorgeous. Perhaps one of my favorite wedding hair styles ever. So happy for this couple!
