Modern Rebel is helping couples break the rules with their love parties.
We specialize in love parties [that’s what we call weddings] for the contemporary couple looking for a totally badass event that doesn’t compromise a lack of perspective. We recognize that couples are all unique, and we’re not interested in a manufactured wedding experience. We love getting to know our couples and helping them focus on priority #1: their relationship’s success in this process! Not to mention, we are committed to non-fussy ease of communication throughout the planning.
Our team is a diverse set of people who wanted to work in the event industry in some capacity but never feel like they fit in the traditional "wedding planner" role. We're not uptight and we don't believe you have to be to pull off a totally awesome event. We're relaxed, organized, and amazing at clear email communication and we have fun, too.
Please email Hello@modernrebelco.com if you're interested in applying for this position. Please include your resumé and cover letter telling us why you're a great fit for the role + Modern Rebel.
