9th annual Hall of Fame Awards honor the Top Wedding Vendors across America
Greene Gables Inn is pleased to announce that they have been inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame from The Knot, a leading wedding planning and registry brand and app. Exceptional wedding professionals who have earned four or more of The Knot Best of Weddings awards are inducted into the prestigious The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
Despite COVID-19 interrupting many 2020 weddings and social events, wedding professionals around the nation continued to support to-be-weds throughout their wedding planning journeys. From adjusting future schedules to make way for postponed weddings to helping couples host socially-distanced weddings following state and local guidelines and restrictions with an increased focus on health and safety, wedding pros — and the industry as a whole – rallied together in 2020, ultimately helping couples continue to celebrate life and love. The Knot 2021 Best of Weddings recognition honors the vendors who went above and beyond to help to-be-weds navigate the global pandemic.
In its 15th annual year, The Knot continues its long-standing tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings 2021, an annual by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. 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 highest rated vendors of the year. These winners represent the best of the best wedding professionals that engaged couples should consider booking for their unique weddings.
This year, The Knot Best of Weddings winners represent the top five percent of local wedding vendors listed on The Knot.
“This place is amazing. They pay attention to every detail and they make everyone feel like family,” Brenda Protz, Officiant, Owner of Weddings by Brenda Protz. (Facebook Review)
“Greene Gables is an absolutely stunning venue! Lu Ann and Lyn absolutely go the extra mile to make your wedding day perfect – It’s clear that every little detail has been thoroughly thought through. We had them cater both our rehearsal dinner and reception and Lu Ann’s cooking is superb. We also rented out the whole house for the weekend (I would 100% suggest you do this! Our wedding party had such a great time!) And at the end of the night, they cleaned up the reception for us and we were able to easily gather it the next morning. I can’t recommend this place enough!” Kelsey G, Bride 10/2/2020. (TheKnot.com Review)
