Last night was the long-anticipated and spectacular annual Gala hosted by The Knot. Industry professionals from far and wide were in attendance to celebrate Bridal Fashion Week and be rewarded for their hard work. Hank Lane Music had the honor of providing entertainment for the evening, including DJ Allison Kay of More Than Music, a “Rock of Ages” tribute band, and several other ensembles. Henry Marks Agency band leaders Bobby Attiko and Kevin Osborne also performed. Special thanks to Fusion Lighting, for tricking out the enormous event space to create the perfect ambience, Dane Wright, and Creative Games Inc. for creating an innovative live Instagram feed projected onto screens throughout the library. Over 1,000 guests were in attendance, including Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici of The Bachelor, Randy Fenoli of Say Yes to the Dress, and Pnina Tornai, wedding dress designer extraordinaire. 12-foot mannequins modeling wedding dresses, designed by Gala planner and celebrity wedding planner Brian Worley of YourBASH!, decorated the space.

The Knot PR Director, Carly, gave us a glowing review. Thank you Carly, and everyone else on The Knot team!
Harris & Marcus,
Where do I begin? Last night literally KICKED ASS. Everyone had the best time and it was due to your entertainment on every level. The music was on another level – everyone gave 10000000000% and you could tell. From Rock of Ages to Bobby to the horns coming down the stairs, it was just unreal. And the lighting, the video wall, Instagram feed, and videos literally just sealed the deal to a perfect entertainment experience.
I can’t thank you both enough for working with us to make this a dream experience. This party was by far our best gala and a full on party because of your enthusiasm, energy, and amazing talent. I look forward to working with you both in the future.
Carly Zipp, PR Director, XO Group Inc., The Knot
