Texas natives Anne and Gabe met while working at a fly-fishing guest ranch in Montana. "It was a summer romance that didn't end," says Anne. The couple married at the bride's family ranch in Concan. "Gabe and I wanted our families to make new memories together in a place that held meaning for both of us," she says. At their wedding the bride wore a lace gown by Elizabeth Fillmore, a veil from Beautiful U Bridal, and a vintage hair comb worn by both of her sisters on their wedding days. The bridal party wore multicolored, handmade caftans purchased in Dubai, where the bride's sister lived. The ceremony, was held beneath a large oak tree festooned with tulle and Chinese lanterns. The roofed outdoor patio was decorated with strings of lights, and the tables, which were covered with lace-topped brown burlap, featured floral centerpieces with a fresh-picked feel.
