    Baltimore's best wedding vendors showed-off their exemplary work at the Industry Networking Event hosted by The Knot at the notable Engineer's Club at Garret-Jacobs Mansion.  Julie Savage of Strawberry Milk Events coordinated the event beautifully, transforming the historic space into a progressive evening of four seasons with a modern edge.  Guests enjoyed seasonal treats in each room along with sounds and decor to fit the mood.  A DJ, handwriting analyst, crystal sangria bar and a classic movie under the stars were highlits of the first part of the evening.  As guests progressed into fall and winter, they enjoyed decadent desserts and a six-piece vintage jazz band.  Stunning live manikins modeled gowns for each season, nudging this party over the top!
