The Knot Mixer 2014

AaronNicholasPhotographyTheKnotMarketMixerinCharleston2014-1 We recently had the opportunity to be a featured vendor for The Knot and their Charleston Market Mixer 2014, and boy was it amazing experience! We were so flattered to be chosen to do the paper products for this event, and to work with such a talented group of vendors!

After months of designing and preparation, the day finally came to attend the mixer last week and get to see all of the elements fall into place.  Everything about it was out of this world gorgeous. It was located at the Gibbes Museum of Art and the second I walked in I was in complete awe. Our friends over at Pure Luxe Bride truly outdid themselves with the Moroccan Glam inspired event. The entire venue felt super plush, with pops of gold, turquoise, and fuchsia, and all of these amazing colors came together to reflect off of the beautiful chandelier and lights that hung in the middle of the venue! Mixer goers enjoyed sipping specialty cocktails, such as the "Casablanca", while chatting with other great wedding vendors from the Charleston area. Luckily, our friends over at Aaron Nicholas Photography captured some great moments from the event. They are so extremely talented { not to mention good friends of ours too! } Check out their stunning work below!

We sipped, we mingled, and we were so blown away with the entire event! It was so great to have the opportunity to be in the company of so many fabulous businesses here in Charleston. I can't wait to see what The Knot has planned for next year. Until next time... Cheers!
