The Knot Wedding Industry Event: Cleveland Cocktails and Connections

Friday, March 14, 2014 No comments

On August 15, 2012, I was pleased to coordinate a Cleveland wedding industry networking event for the largest wedding network, The Knot!  This was a great honor to be asked to do, and I was able to work on this throughout the entire year of 2012 to coordinate details with the Knot's group of women to make sure it all went off without a hitch.

What an amazing and beautiful summer spectacular we created!  I loved being able to play the role of the bride and actually select our style, colors and vendors for this event.  I loved how it all turned out and think you will enjoy the pictures as well.  It was a valuable experience to work with the Knot group on this event, as well as all of the prestigious vendors who also donated their services to make this event wonderful:

On September 7, 2013, we saw our plans that spanned 1.5 years, 2 continents (and sometimes up to 4 while the bride and groom traveled all over the world for work) and a planning team of 5 people come to fruition.  Christina and Nick are quite amazing and unique people and wanted their wedding to reflect their love for sustainability, natural and all things organic.  We did that through our use of neutral colors with pops of bright color, a scrutinized menu and ingredients used in the dinner as well as dessert station, our "plant a tree" favors in which guests could pick tree seeds that they can plant in the zone where they live, and much more.  I think that our style of "Natural Elegance" was achieved and then some, on this beautiful day in Ohio at Club Hillbrook.  And would you believe that Christina designed all of her stationery herself?  She is multi-talented for sure!  We had some great help with the printing and final layout from Blue Envelope Boutique.  Cheers to Christina and Nick!
