Drop your buffs, this tribe is about to merge! Any Survivor fans out there know ‘Joe Amazing’ + Sierra Dawn. They met during the filming of 2014’s Survivor: Worlds Apart, where they had an instant attraction. And, *spoiler alert,* Sierra actually voted Joe out of the game! Fortunately, they more than made up after filming, and, with the help of Canvas Weddings + Events, had a western boho wedding last fall.
Sierra shares a bit of their wedding vision: We wanted our wedding day to be a reflection of both of our personalities; a fall bohemian feel with a little country flare. A quesadilla bar for the bride and a trail mix bar for the groom. We even had some small Survivor touches like merge buffs as wedding favors.
We don’t need to tally the votes, these pics from Forevermore Films are winners! Let’s check them out:
Boho Western Bride
Hello, gorgeous fringe wedding dress!
Amazing Joe + Sierra Dawn
Sierra’s hair + makeup by Stephanie Brinkerhoff brings drama + elegance to her boho western look. And those statement earrings – yes please!
Joe’s looking dapper in that grey groom’s suit from DC Tuxedos! Later on, he switches into a maroon suit, and it’s super fun for dancing.
Yes! Let’s talk about Sierra’s western wonder wedding dress with all the sleeve fringe we’d ever want! Sierra shares her custom dress journey:
I had been looking for the perfect dress for a long time. After searching the Internet for countless hours I found the most perfect designer, Naama and Anat. Together we were able to not only design one but two dresses. Naama is a couture wedding gown designer who made my dream dresses a reality! A bohemian lace and fringe gown to say “I do” in, and the perfect dancing dress for the reception. I could not have worked with a better designer and am forever grateful for Naama for hand making my dresses that not only fit me perfectly but matched my personality, too!

This is about the both of you, do exactly what you both want. You won’t be able to please everyone and that’s ok. You’ll only be engaged for a short while so enjoy the time as fiancés. Enjoy every single step of planning, the day will come quick and will be over in a blink of the eye. Don’t let little things that may not go your take away from the big picture, this is about you two and I promise the day of, all you’ll be focused on is each other!
Ooh loving this fun sparkler wedding exit! Speaking of which, here’s how to go out style with rad wedding exits.
