Big City Bride has teamed up with The Knot for the past FIVE years planning this wonderful industry event! It is such an honor to work with such a talented team year after year to bring together professionals in Chicago. Kayla and the Big City Bride Team pulled together hot wedding trends for a fun and fabulous night! The Knot Industry Event is a networking event for all Chicago wedding industry professionals. It’s such a special networking event, and one we hold dear to our hearts. This event is a chance for such talented individuals to showcase their work. Various vendors pull together to produce a one of a kind event!

The Knot Industry Event was held at Morgan Manufacturing, Chicago’s newest venue. It was so special exploring and working in a new Chicago wedding and event venue (and made us very excited for our upcoming weddings there!).  Morgan Manufacturing is industrial and chic. The rooms are spacious allowing for many different events of all sizes. It is a great atmosphere and can host a black tie affair or a simple, casual event.

This event is one we always look forward to. Planning this event is always so exciting, but our favorite is collaborating with all our vendor friends. This event would not be possible without all Chicago vendors joining together. The amazing and talented vendors we had the pleasure of working with include: Morgan Manufacturing, Blue Plate Catering, SpritzOlogy, Glazed & Infused, Black Dog Gelato, Tipsy Cakes, Kehoe Designs, Tablescapes, BBJ Linens, Hot Mix Entertainment, Jason Ellis Entertainment, Avantgarde Photography, Vanilla Video, Studio M Creations, Chicago Bridal Hair & Make Up, Lulu DK Tattoos, Rock My Bowtie, Spa@theWit, Stella & Dot and Erin Gallagher Jewelry.

This event turned out perfect and Avantgarde Photography captured it beautifully! The photos are absolutley magical. The detailed shots showcase all the amazing work that Big City Bride and Chicago wedding vendors put forth.  It was such an amazing event, and Kayla and the Big City Bride team was so happy to be apart it.  

Bacon Bar….YES, PLEASE! A variety of bacon in a variety of flavors. The perfect addition to your wedding event.



Signature cocktails add flair and fun to your wedding or event. It gives a personal touch to your celebration and it’s such a tasty treat for guests! We loved this 100 Days of Summer speciality drink!
