Anna and Mike were married at Fall River Ranch in Ashton, Idaho last summer. The couple first met 10 years ago, when she frequented the snow-cone shack where he worked. “Finally, one day I had the guts to write my number down on a napkin and give it to him,” Anna said.  After deciding on a destination wedding four hours away from their home in Salt Lake City, they officially had all 40 acres of the property to themselves for the weekend, including no cell service. “Mike and I decided to have a getaway wedding because we only wanted the people there who wanted to be,” she said. The bride wore a v-neck lace wedding gown with a tiered ruffled skirt, accessorized with a floral wreath in her updo, while the groom wore tan suit, accessorized with a blue tie. “It was very important for me to buy my bridesmaids dresses for them,” Anna said. “So, I shopped with each of them to find the perfect style. No one’s body is the same, and I wanted them to feel the best they could and comfortable.” Bouquets were freshly-picked wildflowers wrapped in lace around the stems. Guests were greeted with a welcome sign that encouraged them to hashtag “mike+anna” on their Instagram pictures. “When it came to the wedding decor, we did it all ourselves,” she said. “We used all of my Depression-era glassware, my grandparents collected vintage medicine bottles for me and after many trips to vintage markers and estate sales I had a large selection of vintage items to use as vessels.” Following the evening nuptials, the newlyweds performed their first dance to “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts, but due to a sound system snafu, they ended up dancing to “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran, dinner was served on vintage china, and in lieu of a traditional tiered cake, a red velvet bundt cake was served.
