Anna Baker of Graceful Weddings

Anna hails from the Baltimore area and earned her B.A. in Professional Writing from Carnegie Mellon University. After a short stint in academic publishing, she discovered a love of nonprofit communications and social media, a career she has pursued for about seven years. Her November 2007 wedding sparked another interest in event planning, and she joined with friend Anne to launch Graceful Weddings in February 2008. Dozens of weddings later, Anna still tears up every time a bride walks down the aisle! She lives in Arlington, Virginia, with husband Dallas, daughter Julia (born 2010) and son Elliot (born 2013).
