For this Spotlight Friday we talked with Emily Salomon of Connolly House Events. She talked about being all for the change in the industry of “there being a huge push towards-zero waste weddings in the past year.”
How did you get your start in the Event Planning Industry
I started planning a few friend’s weddings and quickly fell in love, so I decided to make a career out of it
What is your favorite part of the industry
Working and coming alongside other vendors to help create & execute the most important day of a couple’s lives- it is beyond satisfying.
What are your favorite wedding trends this year
The rise of natural elements- clay, terracotta, stoneware, hand-dyed linens. Love it all
What is the biggest change you have seen since the start of your career
What is the best piece of advice you have ever
My father’s life-long advice: less is more. It applies to weddings just as much as it does to everyday life! Couples should do exactly what they envision for their day, and leave any undesired tradition/trend/added cost behind.
