Celebrity Cake Studio in Tacoma has earned entry into a new wedding industry hall of fame, to be compiled by media company The Knot Wedding Network.

The Knot, composed of websites TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, announced that the hall of fame will be based on more than 725,000 reviews from brides across the country. To be considered, a company had to be recognized among The Knot's Best of Weddings for four consecutive years. Eighty markets in the United States will be represented, with inductees representing less than two percent of wedding professionals. 

“We're really proud, mainly because not a lot of people got this,” said Odette D'Aniello of Celebrity Cake Studio, noting that only four businesses in Washington and Oregon are to be inducted this year.

She added that it's especially fulfilling given that the honor is based on input from clients, not to mention input centered on such a high-pressure event as a wedding.

“We would like to thank our past clients for taking the time to review our business. It means so much to us. For somebody to give you feedback, they just really have to love our work …. We went to that end of that spectrum where people just really love our service and they took the time to review us.”
