How TheKnot.com Editor Gets Married!

Oh boy. Here it goes. Planning a wedding as the editor of TheKnot.com came with its perks, and honestly, its downsides. On the one hand, I knew exactly who I wanted to have design my invitations, photograph my engagement photos and wedding, and decorate my cake. But I was also asked a million times whether I felt pressure to make my wedding perfect. (Kind of.) So what happened? Well, it sounds trite but my wedding was really great — no, it was perfect. And I’m not talking about perfect in that oh-my-gosh-never-seen-that-before kind of perfect. Or the wow-that-looks-like-it-cost-a-ton-of-money perfect. It was perfect because it felt perfect and we did it our way. We got married in the dirt, our vinyl DJ played Otis Redding at the reception and TechN9ne at the after-party (many of us hail from Kansas City so enough said there), our wedding cake was ridiculously gorgeous, the flowers were fresh and local, the food was spicy, and we got to spend quality time with every one of our guests. Below and here are a few of my favorite photos from the wedding day. All of the details were perfectly executed and planned by Laura Wright, and were photographed by one of the most talented wedding photographers around (I should know, right?), Mel Barlow. Our wedding video trailer is also at the bottom. It was filmed and edited by Josh Rask for Clark + Walker Studio. Enjoy!

    Wow! It was wonderful to see a desert wedding! My daughter is getting married in Tucson in November, so I’m constantly looking into details that harmonize with and play up the desert feel of her venue–which is a guest ranch. She wants her wedding color to be turquoise, and she also loves the idea of succulents. So I’m trying to come up with a great color pallette which incorporates both the colors of succulents and turquoise. We love the photos you show which have the beautiful saguaros in them! Tucson is our hometown even though we don’t live there anymore, so we are very excited to gather all of our family and friends there for this much-anticipated wedding! Thank you for sharing your photos–they have provided me with some great inspiration and ideas. I especially adore your cake. In fact, I plan to bring a picture of your very cake to the baker to help describe what we want. Congratulations! Your wedding looks like it was a dream come true!

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.
