Meet The Knot Dream Wedding Couple!


Get excited: The Knot is going to throw one lucky couple the wedding of their dreams, and you get to help plan it by voting on all the details!

But just who is The Knot Dream Wedding couple?

Their names are Rebekah Gregory and Pete DiMartino. Last year, on April 15, 2013, the two were standing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a bomb exploded. Since that day, Rebekah has endured 15 surgeries and is still at risk for leg amputation. Pete lost 90 percent of his right Achilles tendon and suffered multiple broken bones in his ankle. Rebekah’s son, Noah, was also injured. Despite their traumatic experience, the two have done their best to move forward with their lives and Pete proposed in October. When we heard about their story, we knew they’d be the perfect couple for The Knot Dream Wedding.

So now for the fun part! Rebekah would love a fairy-tale-themed wedding. Pete’s big request? “I was picturing a really cool bluesy, jazz band.”

Now that we know what they want, we’re going to make it our business to throw them the wedding of their dreams. The first step to ensuring they get a true fairy-tale wedding is to hire an amazing wedding planner. We enlisted the help of celebrity wedding planner Marcy Blum to help pull together all of the details for a truly spectacular event. (By the way, Marcy isn’t just any celebrity planner — she’s of the best. She just planned LeBron James’s wedding!)

Now that we have the couple and the wedding planner, it’s your turn to help. Starting today and throughout the next couple months, we’ll be asking you to vote on all the details of The Knot Dream Wedding.

First up: We have to choose a city! The choices are…

1. Louisville, Kentucky (Rebekah’s hometown)
2. Boston, Massachusetts (To make a happy memory for the city)
3. New York, New York (Pete’s hometown)
4. Asheville, North Carolina (Rebekah and Pete’s favorite vacation spot)

So where should it be? You decide!

    Asheville , North Carolina!!! It’s their favorite place why not create a deeper love for that space! Affordable and delicious wedding catering serving Atlanta and the surrounding area.

    Where ever the most family members and close friends can attend. They are more important than the”stuff”.

    I wish they would opt for the gorgeous Southwest by planning a winter wedding in Phoenix, AZ. I’m thrilled that so much happiness has grown out of such devastation and senseless pain. I’m honored to know you, even peripherally, as Colton’s aunt.

    Asheville is such a beautiful place! My hometown is about an hour away from there, and take every opportunity I can to visit!

    Asheville for sure!! It has a special meaning to both of them. Where they get married shoud be a place of great happiness and beauty to them. A place where their families came come together to focus on them and their day.

    Boston has no happy memories and too much “baggage” for them and their families to really relax and enjoy the time. Someone would always be thinking about “that day back then when everything changed” extra instead of “that day when these two met, fell in love, etc”.

    Boston, really that is the last place I would want after how that all changed their lives. Let them have their place that they love. I VOTED Asheville.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
