José Rolón Events
There are so many talented wedding planners out there, it can seem overwhelming choosing just one, but we have a bit of a sweet spot for this guy. José Rolón is amazing. His wedding planning skills are just the tip of the iceberg! We asked him to tell us a bit about himself. Here's what he had to say...
It doesn't hurt that my birthday is on Valentine's Day, but I've always been passionately romantic in my personal life.
After planning and getting married to my husband in 2010 at The Foundry, I decided it was time to get paid for what already comes naturally to me. I launched José Rolón Events after 2 and half years of working at the very place I got married-The Foundry. The knowledge I gained from the best of the best in the industry marching through those doors was invaluable. From catering to design, I soaked it all in until it was time! I seem to have a reputation in the industry for being calm and collected. Couples have said I bring a certain ease to the process which I find interesting because isn't that the point of hiring a planner? I can honestly say, I have had coffee, lunch, or dinner with 95% of my couples after they've walked away happily ever after. If that's not bonus to what I do, I don't know what is.
The biggest element in creating a successful event is to leave your ego at the door. In an industry filled with big personalities, this goes a long way. I tend to attract couples and vendors with similar energies and this, along with talent, makes for a kick-ass event!
