  • Watch your brand, company or services resonate with the events and wedding professionals — including planners, caterers, and venue managers — in a real and authentic way via one-to-one connections throughout the week

  • Show your crew some love and bring them along to work and play with us this week -- every sponsor will receive admission to the conference for up to (3) employees

  • Use the conference to share your brand story and unique product through a custom cocktail workshop or happy hour sponsorship



The Love Union is a 4-day creative conference / wellness retreat / collaborative networking event for the wedding industry produced by Gowanus Hospitality Group, owners and operators of popular Brooklyn wedding venues The Green Building and 501 Union.

The Love Union was created by Gowanus Hospitality Group for people in the wedding and events industry who want to develop and grow their business, connect with their local community, and learn new skills in a low key, no pressure environment.

intimate & FOcused

We hand select the speakers and teachers, curate the programming with our community, and purposefully keep the event small (and lovely!), maxing out at 450 attendees throughout the week, offering a chance for deeper engagement with your brand or service.


We believe that everyone has a skill to teach or advice to give, regardless of background or career stage. We provide a platform for guests to engage with each other via co-working, Office Hours, small group discussions, shared meals, Crafternoons, and more. During the week, connections are made, new friendships are forged, and work/life experiences are shared over coffee, lunch, or cocktails.


400+ Small business owners, vendors and creatives primarily working in the wedding, events, service and hospitality industries. Planners, caterers, photographers, DJs, florists, designers, hair and make-up artists, changemakers, community builders, creatives, etc.


Thank you so much for allowing us to light such a wonderful event. You could feel "The Love Union" from everyone who attended.  - Shades of Grey Productions

Completely spoiled this past week at the @theloveunion. I was so encouraged by the friendship, shared meals, openness, know-how, and generosity really of so many incredible people in the event industry. I have mad respect for you! And a big thank you to @gowanushospitality for putting on this retreat week at @501union with such thoughtfulness and style! - indyfaso

What a great few days at #theloveunion meeting an awesome community of talented (mostly) ladies from the event world! Great local vendors that opened up about starting & running their businesses at panel talks- Inspiriting stuff! Loved all the details of this event: cooking demo, craft corner, tarot reading, messages, manicures, meditation, fabulous lunch & happy hour with a pretty lit dance party! Thanks for welcoming and letting me have a sneak peak @theloveunion - marisatshaw
