A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a networking party hosted by The Knot. It was a fabulous night at The Palace in Somerset, complete with raspberry champagne, beautiful Moroccan-inspired decor, great food and lots of amazing people!

Planned by Jenny Orsini of Pampered Bride Weddings, this event was held for The Knot NJ vendors and allowed me to meet other professionals in the wedding industry. Some of the interesting folks I made contact with were:

Christine Kosakowski of Olive Branch Papery:  her invitation designs are exquisite. I’m looking forward to partnering with her on the handwritten calligraphy for events in the near future.
Jessica Weiss Marder: paints the scene of your entire event (wedding, Bar / Bat Mitzvah, etc.) by hand, starting with the room and then filling in the people. Such a unique and priceless memento.
Alexandria, of La Bella Cakery: just relocated from Boston to the Princeton area to help provide beautiful cakes and other confections for formal events.
Lisa’s Candy Buffet: one of the highlights of the evening – her gourmet candy buffet with jellybeans, snowballs, gummy apple slices and other treats were a big hit, and we even got to take home a goodie bag 🙂

Mara, Alexis, and John from The Knot were amazing as well and offered guidance, and it was great to meet Carley Roney, the editor of The Knot NJ magazine.
