    To Postpone, or Not to Postpone? With Regina Burns, of Rise Event Production

    To Postpone, or Not to Postpone? With Regina Burns, of Rise Event Production

    138: As the poet said, "To Postpone or Not to Postpone, that is the question" - or something like that! As we round out a full year of dealing with the global pandemic we've come to know as COVID-19, the wedding and events industry is still struggling to keep up with ever-changing restrictions and guidelines. And the ultimate question that keeps falling to couples is: do we postpone our wedding, or totally change our vision for our special day? It's a huge question, and it can put a tremendous amount of stress on the couple, their relationship, and even their family and friends! Enter today's expert, Regina Burns. Regina is the founder and CEO of Rise Event Production, and she is an incredible wedding and event planner. Actually, her website calls her "the Production Queen", so let's just call her 'Your Highness'! She has come to visit us today, to share her passion and compassion with our listeners. It's clear how much she cares about putting on an amazing event, that will absolutely knock the socks off of any guest - but she is also keenly aware of her clients' state of mind. She knows that couples are getting burnt out from all of the frustrations of the past year, and she is here to preach the gospel of self care! So plug in your headphones, pull up a seat, and grab a glass of delicious lemonade! (don't worry, that will make sense later)

    Rise Event Production is a full-service event production company specializing in digital, live, and hybrid events worldwide! They produce corporate and non-profit meetings and events, as well as private/social events and are very active in the luxury wedding space! Their mission is to provide curated event and marketing services that are imaginative, impactful, and have the power to rise above and beyond client expectations. They bring innovation, artistry, and endless laughter to their client's journey with us.

    Regina Burns has carried her genuine passion for events with her from a very young age, where she was introduced into the industry through her late Mother's production company. It was there where Regina would find inspiration, fall in love with the industry, and discover exactly what she was born to do. With a dream of becoming an entrepreneurial Event Coordinator, Regina began freelancing in her home state of Massachusetts while enrolled in design school. Upon completion, she moved to California to work alongside some of the country's most elite event professionals. Regina has produced luxury weddings and high-profile special events in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco. It was through her time in California where Regina came to realize that her dream of following in her mother's footsteps was on the horizon. When she traveled back to the East Coast in 2018, Regina brought with her extensive experience, industry knowledge and that fire that has always been inside of her for the official launch of  her business; Rise Event production! Regina holds a trinity of certifications in Wedding Planning, Event and Hospitality Management, and Event Design and Styling. To pair these credentials with her innate ability for human connection is the perfect combination. Regina's primary focus is to form the unbreakable bond that exists between coordinator and client; one full of trust, loyalty and endless laughter. With her vibrant energy and warm personality, a journey with Regina is unlike any other. She will bring innovation, creativity and one hell of a good time to an event of any kind!

    What to expect (and NOT expect) from your wedding planner! Featuring Leah Weinberg, Color Pop Events

    What to expect (and NOT expect) from your wedding planner! Featuring Leah Weinberg, Color Pop Events

    136 - Things come up all the time during the wedding planning process that need to be dealt with. And the big question usually ends up being: "Ok, who's going to handle this?"  Some couples like to DIY everything, while others delegate. That's why we brought in Leah Weinberg, the Owner & Creative Director of Color Pop Events in  New York City, to help us talk about why it's so important to figure out what to expect (and what NOT to expect) from your Wedding Planner! Sometimes couples just don't know what their planner's roles are. Leah talks about what couples can expect from their wedding planner, expectations that the wedding planner has of the couple, and what the couple should do if they want a new planner. 

    Color Pop Events is a wedding planning company that lives in the logistics, providing an unmatched focus on event details for clients. Celebrating seven years of business, Leah continues to leverage the organization skills, calm communication style, and ability to multi-task she initially developed as a commercial real estate lawyer in her previous career. 

    Leah's colorful work and party planning tips have been published online and in print with Vogue, the New York Times, People, CNBC, Bravo, Martha Stewart, and The Knot, among others. Recently, Leah has been recognized as a 20 on the Rise winner by Honeybook and the Rising Tide Society, one of the 25 Young Event Pros to Watch by Special Events Magazine, and one of BizBash's Top 500 Event Pros in the US. 

    A 2020 WeddingPro Educator with The Knot + WeddingWire, Leah travels throughout the country sharing insight with her peers regionally, as well as at national conferences such as ALT Summit, NACE Experience, and The Special Event.

    They're Playing Our Song: Take your wedding music to the next level, with a custom love song about YOU. ft Allie Chipkin, Give Love Originals

    They're Playing Our Song: Take your wedding music to the next level, with a custom love song about YOU. ft Allie Chipkin, Give Love Originals

    135: Some couples have a special song, and some don't. But how many couples have a song that was literally written ABOUT THEM by an award-winning singer-songwriter? This week's guest is changing the game when it comes to wedding music, by creating uniquely personal, romantic, and quirky love songs for couples. And the couples are using them in so many ways - in the ceremony, at the reception, as their first dance, or even as an anniversary gift!

    Allie Chipkin is a critically acclaimed folk singer-songwriter from the Hudson Valley who has recently returned to NY after 4 years in Boulder, CO. Her original songs have received recognition in notable competitions like the Telluride Bluegrass Contest, and as a singer, she has had the honor of performing the National Anthem for the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Allie is the founder and CEO of Give Love Originals (GLO), a company that writes and records custom love songs for couples on their wedding day.
