1. Tell me a little bit about you and your business.
We are a wedding and event planning and coordination firm. We (Janea and Jenn) always knew that we would be doing something with events or weddings. We met when we were 12 and 15 years old and were consumed with fun events and weddings while we were young! When we were 18 and 21 we actually wrote our first business plan to start our own planning business but life got a hold of us and at last a decade or so later we finally followed our dreams and started Rosetree! Rosetree is a mix of our 2 last names, Rosen & Mitcheltree. We love all the pretties and the administration that goes into having a business like ours!
2. How did you begin your journey towards Wedding Planning?
We both started planning events and weddings at very young ages. When we became friends in our teens, we teamed up for wedding planning/coordination at our church and the passion and future dream of our partnership began. We actually started with a very simple business plan when we were just out of high school.
3. How would you explain the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator? Do you do both?
Yes, we do both planning & coordination! We define a wedding planner as that go to person, typically hired at the very beginning process of planning, who will not only help establish a budget but who also guides clients with design, vendor recommendations/meetings, timeline creation, is a quick problem solver & sometimes therapist all the while managing logistics for overall day (and much more). A wedding coordinator will provide additional help day of, timeline creation and will execute all of the planning the couple have done the day of while being the main point of contact for wedding party, family, vendors and guests.
4. What is one thing you don’t forget to tell your clients?
We always tell them to plan on scheduling alone time. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day and the festivities that couples forget to steal some moments just for themselves. Plus they may want a kiss or two without all eyes being on them!
5. When designing a wedding, what is the basic process you go through with couples to nailing down a style direction?
Most importantly, we thrive on the inspiration that comes when meeting a couple and hearing about their story and their listening to what they envision for their wedding day. Once we get a good idea of what their vision is we put together a style board with the color palette, details and rentals. This is a great visual that allows our clients to see how all the décor pieces will fit together.
6. Do you have a team of wedding planners on team Rosetree Weddings & Events?
We have a great group of Rosebuds (20 in all) that consist of Lead Planners, Assistants & interns. Our team photos and bios are found on our about us page on our website., please check them out and get to know us a little more. 🙂
7. If you could plan any wedding or event, what would that be?
Destination weddings! We love to travel and love the different cultures around the world! (PLUS: traveling in the winter time is a bonus!)
