Charles X Block, a Tamaqua clothing store, has been selected as a 2019 winner of The Knot Best of Weddings awards.
The award recognizes the highest- and most-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot, a leading wedding planning brand and app.
In 2019, only 4 percent of hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals listed on The Knot received this distinguished award.
In its 13th annual year, The Knot continues its long-standing tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings 2019, 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 best and most rated vendors of the year.
These winners represent the best of the best wedding professionals that a couple should consider booking for their own unique wedding.
“We’re thrilled about receiving such a prestigious award,” said Ralph Richards, owner of Charles X Block.
“We’ve always been a store that prides itself on the best clothing, accessories and customer service in the area. We’re excited word is finally getting out about us, thanks to our loyal and satisfied customers who have contributed these great reviews on The Knot. It’s our store’s 95th birthday this year, so now we have another reason to celebrate.”
