Anna Bavor and Bryan Smith Ranch Wedding Hats and Boots

Anna Bavor and Bryan Smith married last spring in the heart of their shared cattle-raising community. The boots and hats in their bridal party were intended for practical use after the party was over.

When Los Altos Hills native Anna Bavor (now Anna Smith) started planning her wedding to Bryan Smith, their shared world of ranches and rodeos defined the setting and its aesthetic.

They both work in livestock, now living in Byron and raising commercial beef in the East Bay Hills – if you’ve ever spotted cattle grazing nearby as you went for a hike, you’ve gotten a glimpse of how their beef gets raised.
