A Romantic Desert Wedding 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.
