Hey Party People!

The truth is: I used to cringe at the idea of being an “event planner.” Sure, it combines a lot of things I love and feel confident doing: organizing, brainstorming, implementing, collaborating with new people…yet there was this sick feeling at the pit of my stomach because of how out of hand this industry has gotten. Was I buying into this oversaturated industry if I liked to plan cool events? The short answer: no. The long answer: still, no. And I’ll tell you why: because planning a badass event and giving back doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive: that’s my philosophy


This industry (like any industry!) needs the yous and mes of this world to shake things up, and that’s what we’re trying to do here at Modern Rebel & Co. We plan unique events (think: offbeat weddings & super funky dinner parties) and partner with local nonprofits to meet your and their goals simultaneously, and we have a blast doing it.


Modern Rebels come in all forms and fashions. They are feminist brides, an ageing tattooed gay couple celebrating 60 years together, or a tech start-up celebrating their third anniversary. Our modern rebellion means creating an experience for your guests and doing it with style, sincerity, and a social impact.


So, what do you say? Are you a modern rebel, too?


Let’s shake things up,


Amy Shackelford, Founder / Lead Planner / Chief Rebel
