NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, The Knot—the nation’s leading wedding planning and registry resource—announced its annual Best of Weddings and Hall of Fame award winners. The two accolades recognize The Knot’s most honorable wedding vendors across the country as rated by couples, for couples, continuing The Knot’s long-standing tradition of supporting local wedding professionals nationwide.
From photographers and venues to cake bakers and wedding planners, the prestigious award honors those with the highest ratings and most reviews from real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot. Exceptional vendors who have earned four or more of The Knot Best of Weddings awards are inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
“A wedding cannot exist without an entire vendor team working tirelessly to bring a couple’s unique wedding vision to life, which is why we at The Knot are honored to connect thousands of to-be-weds with their local wedding pros every single day,” said Kristen Maxwell Cooper, editor in chief of The Knot. “We are thrilled to recognize exceptional local pros each year with The Knot Best of Weddings and Hall of Fame awards.”
Of the hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals listed on The Knot, 5 percent received the prestigious Best of Weddings accolade this year. To determine the winners, The Knot analyzed its millions of user reviews across various vendor categories, including venues, musicians, florists, photographers, caterers and more, to find the best and most-rated vendors of the year. Additionally, 1,020 wedding professionals were inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame this year.
“Winning The Knot Best of Weddings helps set us apart and level up in our market. When couples start planning their wedding, they have no idea what to look for and how to find top vendors when searching through all the options in their area,” said Kristin Wilson, CEO and DJ of Our DJ Rocks. “The award helps validate our level of professionalism and care for client service. We show off our award everywhere we can!”
