And when you’re hauling your butt out into said snow, you might want a matching winter wedding headpiece, veil, crown, or even a woolly hat to match.

Tip a hat to this peacock, cowboys, and cacti wedding in San Diego

Anne and Chad wanted to bring a lovable, fun, and laid-back take to their cowboys and cacti wedding in San Diego. They were married over the summer at a really fun venue in San Diego, Leo Carrillo Ranch, with peacocks roaming and sand all around.

Anne rocked a gorgeous gown while Chad took his outfit to a new level with beautiful embroidery, a bolero, and cowboy hat. This wedding is totally chock full of color and personality — the ring bearer even rode down the aisle in a John Deere tractor!
