The Knot Party: Central Florida's Wedding Vendors know how to party.

Before I can even write about the experience I have to do this first:

Hats off to Tracy Marini, PBC and her staff at Eventfully Yours! Tracy did such a wonderful job putting together this years Knot Party that the last song played and everyone was still hanging around...that is what I call a party.

The Knot hosts industry events throughout the state and they always select one of the top area planners to plan and host the party. We are fortunate to have many wonderful Bridal Consultants in the Central Florida area and I can only imagine the difficulty in picking one to host this annual 'Shin-Dig'. Tracy did not disappoint. With "Green" being the biggest and most conscious trend in the wedding industry, it was great to see 'green' incorporated in many ways at the party. The decor, the food, desserts and favors all had green elements.. The party was themed "An Earth Friendly Evening".
The event was hosted at Ceviche. Ceviche is a BEAUTIFUL Tapas Bar & Restaurant in downtown Orlando. Needless to say the decor was on point and the food was FABULOUS. Oddly enough I had heard about these wonderful cupcakes from a new Cupcake Shoppe...wouldn't you know Sweet was one of the vendors that brought in the most sinfully delicious and decadent cupcakes you could ever taste! Tracy had a great team of vendors that pulled the evening together. The centerpieces and florals were all donated to the MD Anderson Center for Cancer and we all went home with potted herbs (I had rosemary) so that our favors were not ones that would go to waste.

Below are some beautiful shots taken by Brian Adams and he managed to catch us all on the dance floor. Brian was nice enough to link all of the photos on his site for us to view and download. Wedding professionals really how to party. It was nice to not stand on the sidelines while everyone was on the dance floor. Oh yeah, we worked too. Alan Greenburg a VP from the Knot spoke to us about latest trends and forecasts in the wedding industry.
Tracy, chapeaux bas -- hats off!
