There once was a puppy. The cutest puppy in the entire world. And he had a job to do. Oh, wait! We're getting ahead of ourselves.
Meet Annie + Emory… two rebels who are changing the world individually through their socially minded careers [urban planning + reproductive rights respectively] and whose partnership would make even a love-skeptic swoon. They brought on Modern Rebel for full planning, design + coordination and we spent 7 months bringing the most bangin' love party to life! With the help of the most incredible and value focused vendors, we brought Hawaii [Emory grew up there!] meets Winery to life.
But the best part of it all? You mean aside from Maui, their adorable pup, greeting guests as they entered the ceremony space? That was tough to top! But the sheer emotion after ceremony was so palpable. It's rare as a planner you get pulled into a group hug full of tears for a solid 30 seconds post-ceremony but that was how real and raw the emotions were. So much to celebrate. Aside from the couple themselves + their amazing community - we were able to pump some personality into Brooklyn Winery, plus an epic flower wall and a dance-y crowd belting "Born this Way" at the top of their lungs. It was a love party for the books and an epic way to kick of PRIDE month. Cheers to you, A+E!
