Tiesto Marries Model Annika Backes in the Utah Desert


Tiësto married the "love of my life," model Annika Backes, in the middle of the Utah desert on Saturday. The dance producer shared gorgeous photos, captured by Vogue, Instagram on Monday (Sept. 23).

Tiesto (real name: Tijs Verwest) and Backes — who has already changed her Instagram handle to @AnnikaVerwest — have been dating since 2015 and got engaged in 2017. According to Vogue, the couple were married in front of 80 guests at the desert resort Amangiri, where they had previously visited. “A city that we both love a lot is Las Vegas, so we started looking at venues there, but we soon decided we wanted it to take place somewhere remote,” Backes told Vogue. “We explored the option of throwing a party in the desert outside of Las Vegas. But when we got into that more, we knew it was going to be too complicated to pull off. That’s when we thought of Amangiri.”
