I’m The Art Director of The Knot Magazine And This Is My Wedding

Designing and crafting in my spare time has always been something I enjoy, so our wedding became an excuse for me to do lots of creative projects. Translation: lots of trips to the craft store and a few late nights! I designed everything from our letterpressed invitation suite with a watercolor envelope liner, to the table name cards that were displayed in pomegranates. Our guests loved their sea-salt caramel favors in festive paper wrappers and I even designed our wooden cake toppers to look like us.

In addition to all of my design projects, I had a few wedding must- haves in mind from the start: a wedding dress with sleeves, a croquembouche wedding cake (even though I’m not French, I adore them) and my two godchildren participating as ring bearer and flower girl- all in the photos below! I also knew that when it came to photography I wanted a mix of both black and white film (for that soft, dreamy feeling) and color digital shots. Our photographer, Meg Matyia, captured all the special moments with her talented eye. She used a few different cameras, including a Holga, Rolleiflex and Leica, to give us a beautiful variety of timeless images that feel like us.

We exchanged our vows at Sacred Heart Church and then celebrated with our friends and family at the White Beeches Golf and Country Club — both in my hometown of Haworth, New Jersey. Looking back now, I can say it was a dream day (complete with gorgeous weather) that Greg and I will remember forever! Enjoy our photos below and see more here!

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.
