The Knot Gala = "Love On Top"

We were thrilled to have been invited to cover the red carpet at one of Bridal Fashion Week's most anticipated events, The Knot's 2nd Annual Industry Gala, held at The New York Public Library on October 17th.  Capping off this season's Bridal Market, the who's who of all things weddings ... socialites, designers, event planners and other industry players ... gathered to party the night away and celebrate at what many consider to be the Oscars of the wedding world.  After being shown our place on the red carpet, we were just so excited to be a part of it all!

Along with Carley Roney, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Knot, many other top personalities opened the event by walking the red carpet and providing interviews to the press and bloggers (including yours truly) such as celebrity event designer Diann Valentine, TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” star Randy Fenoli, and bridal designers Amsale, Pnina Tornai, and Yumi Katsura.

Bathed in soft blue and purple gobos amidst an absolutely amazing 7-piece band, Astor Hall proved to again be the perfect locale as attendees enjoyed magnificent champagne and chocolate bars along with unique palate-pleasing eats by celebrity chef Danny Meyer ... my personal favorite being the meatball sliders, YUM!

While we were excited to simply rub elbows with some of the very best in our business, we also luckily had the chance to personally interview Carley Roney, Diann Valentine and Amsale!

And here's a little snippet of the festivities including a bit of our talk with Diann Valentine about her new WE tv show, I Do Over, which premieres Sunday, November 13th.

The Knot sure tied and wrapped Bridal Fashion Week all up in the prettiest box and bow ever!  Beautiful night ... Gorgeous people ... Wonderful event.  Though we surely weren't surprised at the result; for The Knot, no matter what, love's always on top!
