The Knot Pro Workshop at Barr Mansion

Usually when a friend or relative is getting married, they will send out cute little Save The Date cards with their wedding website on it. More often than not, the domain name has the words, “theknot” in it. That’s because The Knot is America’s main source for wedding inspiration and planning making it a must-have tool for engaged couples and wedding vendors alike. Last year, The Knot Pro Network announced a series of The Knot Workshops they were going to put on in 2017 across the country, and Austin was lucky enough to be on that list. And, we were lucky enough to be asked to provide seating and a few lounges for the entire workshop!

Designed by our friends at Wild Sky Events, The Knot Pro Workshop in Austin was held at the beautiful Barr Mansion. Since this is Texas after all, the grass was still green and the late November weather was decidedly perfect for some outdoor seating. Indie House provided the rad tee-pees that a coffee bar serving Lucky Lab Coffee sat underneath while attendees gathered around two of our lounge areas. The third lounge we designed had a fabulous centerpiece crafted by Color Theory Collective, and sat onstage and served as the setting for the panel discussions led by top members of the wedding industry.

The stage and speakers overlooked rows of tables with goodies for the attendees who were seated in our Medrano bistro chairs, which gave that special touch to what could have been standard, unremarkable mass seating. The day was captured by the darling and talented Sophie Epton, whose images can be viewed below. Obviously, it was a thoroughly enjoyable way to gather and learn with industry creatives and we were oh so very honored to be a part of it. ‘Til next time!
