That's an accolade representing the highest, and most-rated, wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot, a leading wedding planning brand and app.

“I want to thank the over 50 amazing couples who not only allowed us to be part of their very special day, but who also helped us by sharing their great experiences with others on The Knot. 

“To be recognized in such a capacity after less than a year in business is both incredibly humbling and encouraging.”  

In 2019, only four percent of hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals listed on The Knot received this distinguished award. In its 13th annual year,
