In October we had the privilege to plan an industry event for the Knot Wedding Network. This was such a fun event to plan. Mostly because it was an opportunity to do something for all of our fabulous Columbus wedding professionals who work so hard for the wedding community all year long.
Station 67 was kind enough to host us. It's a great venue downtown that had the perfect "blank canvas" spaces for our event that we love. We set out to create a comfy yet stylish lounge where our guests could grab a cocktail, sit down and relax. It's rare that we all are able to get together and just talk. Most times we're emailing, tweeting and running into each other for brief moments at our events. We also made sure there were plenty of delish food on hand for snacking. One of our favorites was the Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream cart!
Our guests also took in the sounds of Crescent Fresh, a hip new band, as they lounged in the chic living room space. A fun photo opportunity was available for guests. Instead of the same old photo booth, we decided to mix it up a little and do a "Step & Repeat" -just like the celebrities on the red carpet. Everyone had a lot of fun posing for pictures and receiving a copy to take home with them.
We did a mix of tall and short cabaret tables
Our little white Fuji mum centerpieces with a touch of blue

Our sparkling Paw Paw signature cocktail
Our second cocktail used a specialty apple cider native to Ohio
