Every year The Knot conducts the most trusted wedding industry survey of its kind (12K couples!) called The Knot Real Weddings Study. With that knowledge in her pocket Anja knows better than most just how much the wedding industry has been affected by the advent of social media.“Couples have come [to The Knot] after getting engaged for years,” said Winikka, “but now the expectations of what it means to plan a wedding are changing.”  Come learn how couples self-describe their weddings, what couples look for on Instagram, when to send out your e-newsletter, how to make getting reviews part of your workflow and even venue trends; all taken from the stats of the most current Knot Survey.  

Anja immersed herself in the weddings industry at a young age, when she took a job as a weddings coordinator at a local reception space, helping to make hundreds of couples’ wedding days perfect. In addition to editing, researching and reporting on a variety of topics for the, ranging in subject from getting engaged to planning tips and wedding style ideas, Anja can be found pouring over trending topics and conversation among the thousands of brides that are a part of community.

Anja has been a popular source for wedding trends, planning tips and advice and etiquette and has also served as an expert for the Today Show, Good Morning America, ABC 20/20, CNN Headline News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and local news segments across the country.

The Austin Empty Bowl Project is an all-volunteer effort by Central Texas potters to raise awareness of and funds for fighting childhood hunger. Potters donate bowls, restaurants donate soup and bread, and the public are invited to enjoy a meal accompanied by live music from some of Austin’s favorite musicians. This family friendly event takes place the Sunday before Thanksgiving every year. Over 2000 folks participate day of, either as volunteers, diners, chefs, bakers, or musicians. Between 35 and 40 restaurants and chefs donate soup and bread each year. There are 3500-4000 bowls to choose from, made and/or decorated by potters, schoolchildren, church groups, Girl Scouts, and our generous sponsors. A $20 donation gets you a bowl filled with your choice of soup and bread, a delicious way to ensure that all of our Central Texas children are getting the nourishment they need. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, all of the money we raise at the event goes to Kids’ Cafe (Central Texas Food Bank) and Meals for Kids (Meals on Wheels Central Texas) to provide a hot evening meal as well as a safe place for kids to go after school.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday, November 19, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Central Texas Food Bank, 6500 Metropolis Drive, Austin, TX 78744.
