LA’s Knot Party at the Dodger Stadium

Every year, The and the Knot magazine put on a lavish event to thank all of their existing advertisers and in hopes to entice new ones. This year Mary Sushinski and I had the privilege of planning this grandiose event.

The event took place at Stadium Club, at the Dodger Stadium. We brought in some of the most amazing vendors to showcase at this event. From the food, design and entertainment, our event went off without a hitch.
