tuscaloosa, alabama

Hey y’all! I am Anna Katherine from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I am currently engaged to my best friend, Jake and cannot wait to marry him on May 18, 2019 in T-town.

I graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in political science and shortly after moved to Washington, DC. I have spent the last three years working in politics in DC and have loved every minute of it. Tuscaloosa and Jake are home to me and I am so excited to be back in Alabama and starting a new chapter. I have always loved the south, but leaving home made me appreciate Alabama even more, especially sweet tea and southern hospitality! You can always find me traveling, eating Taco Casa, beaching it, watching corgi videos, singing karaoke and online shopping.

Jake and I have been dating since we were 15 years old and I have always dreamed of the perfect dress to marry him in. Heidi made all of my dreams come true and styled me in the most amazing dress that fits my personality perfectly, classic and sassy! Being a #heidibride is amazing and finding my dress with Heidi was the most personable, comfortable experience of all. I am so excited to be back in Tuscaloosa and cannot wait to help you design the dress of your dreams and make you a Build-A-Bride!
