Mental Break: Essential Oils with Jose Rolon

Wedding planner José Rolón has been using essential oils with his couples for over a year now: diffusing lavender in their hotel room to keep them chill, rubbing peppermint down their neck and top spine to cool them off when they're out taking pics in the heat, or placing a drop of lemon on their wrist to keep their mood up. In this workshop, Jose will walk us through ways to use oils on the wedding day...and how to incorporate them into your own wellness routine to stay calm, sane and healthy during a 16-hour day!

In Our Own Words: "Clarifying Wedding Pros Roles for More Successful Events!" 

One of the fun things about the Love Union is we get to explore the intersections between our roles in the industry. And though our goal is common (happy clients!), there can sometimes be overlap, conflict, and confusion that can be minimized with a better understanding of each other's roles and responsibilities. We are all in this together! 

Join Tammy Golson Fallon, founder of Tammy Golson Events for a discussion between florist Gabrielle Aronas (G! Designs), venue coordinators Claire Mahler (501 Union) and Susan Liang (The Green Building), photographer Amber Gress, Founder & Director of MG Hair & Makeup Megan Garmers, and Holly Sheppard, owner of  Fig & Pig Catering as they reveal some of the biggest misconceptions about their role in the wedding, pet peeves when working with other vendors, and the one thing they wish their colleagues knew about their job!

According to the stock market and unemployment numbers, our economy is bumping, but the reality is that some progressive couples are being more tentative with their money in this new era of Trump and are less willing to spend on weddings the way they used to.

The team at Catalyst Wedding Co. fully believes you can still run a successful business while serving your ideal clients, it just might mean evolving your business money. Catalyst Wedding Co. Creative Director Jen Siomacco will walk you through things that you can start doing today to streamline your business, take on more clients, and ultimately make more money without having to price out your current clientele.
