Anja & Ben in Tucson, AZ
Anja Winikka, 30, is hardly the average bride—she’s the site director for The Knot.com! So when she started planning her wedding to Ben (31 and a high school teacher), we knew something special was in the works, and her springtime nuptials did not disappoint. The Arizona native used a color palette of oranges, pinks, neutrals and browns with pops of turquoise for her desert destination
affair. She created an ombré effect by beginning the day with a muted color scheme of white, greens and browns for the ceremony, before moving to coral and peach for the cocktail hour and ending
with a bang—bright pink, orange and turquoise—for the reception.
