Sponsor: Knotted at Takk House

My thanks to Knotted at Takk House for sponsoring Keep Albany Boring this week. Knotted is a wedding event at Takk House happening this Sunday, described as “curated wedding showcase for the offbeat couple”. I like to think of it as a wedding show for people who probably cringe when they hear “wedding show”.

Knotted is a curated wedding showcase for the offbeat couple who doesn’t quite fit the traditional wedding market. This show is anything but that. Carefully curated Knotted is a collection of independent artists, musicians, planners, decorators and foodie superheros! This is a party. Not a convention.

What you’ll find:
• The best indie vendors in the area
• Array of music performances so you can listen to bands and dj’s first hand
• Couples of all kinds!
• Food tastings
• Cocktail ideas and craft beer sampling
• Wedding dress showcase

Learn more about Knotted on their website and facebook, or simply show up Sunday.
