American Rose Weddings w/Justin & Steph
Justin and Steph Ziebell are married life partners and a wedding videography duo based in Connecticut and serving couples worldwide. They joined Regina and Cate to talk about their inspiration, what makes their wedding films unique, and who they love working with. They love creating one-of-a-kind unique wedding films that evoke nostalgia and feel more like home movies than blockbuster movies, and they use a combination of digital and Super 8 film to achieve that affect. We talked at length about why they adopted this style when the current trends are more dramatic and cinematic. They explained that their inspirations come from film and its beautiful imperfections, and these qualities help them tell more authentic stories about and for their couples.It was fun getting to know these two and learn about their unique offering and shooting style, as they bring totally different strengths and creative passions to their business and are doing something that stands out in the industry.Where to find them: www.americanroseweddings.com Email: americanrosemedia@gmail.comSocial media: @americanroseweddings on Youtube, Facebook and Instagram --Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by Nettson

The Soulful Wedding w/Maureen Cotton
Reverend Maureen Cotton is a coach and officiant based in Beverly, Massachusetts and serving all of New England. She joined Regina and Cate for a wonderful, meaningful, meandering conversation about tradition, ritual, and why weddings are so full of potential.Maureen is not your average wedding officiant. She works with couples in a therapeutic coaching relationship prior to their wedding to ask big picture questions and find out what matters to them, and why. She thinks of this as an imperative not only for wedding planning, but also as the foundation for a solid, successful, communicative marriage.Maureen was so much fun to talk to because her experience and knowledge base are so broad--she is truly interested in and passionate about so many things. Our discussion took turns from the profound and heavy to the lighthearted and joyful, and by the end of her interview, we felt like we had been hypnotized by her compassionate and empathic energy.Where to find her: thesoulfulwedding.com Email: maureen@thesoulfulwedding.comSocial media: @maureencottonceremonies on Instagram --Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by Nettson

By working with all different kinds of couples with all different tastes and cultures, he's been able to stretch and show off different parts of his own personality and musical repertoire. Gary brought enthusiasm, passion, and straight-up joy to our discussion of the wedding industry.

Costanzo Clothing
Tony and Tara of Costanzo Clothing join the podcast for a lively discussion about how clothing is so much more meaningful than we often think.Tara and Tony have owned and operated their Hartford-based custom clothier business for almost twenty years. They specialize in crafting tailored garments that are customized to fit a person's frame, style, and personality, and they do house calls and in-depth online meetings to make sure every single detail of the garments in question are person.Tony and Tara completely won us over with their warm-hearted spirits and the passion they so clearly have for the work they do. We talked at length about how fraught clothing (and shopping can be) for people, especially folks who have body sizes/shapes and gender identities outside of what society considers 'normal'. Their energy for giving back and leaving a legacy left us feeling excited about referring them to clients and knowing them in general.Costanzo clothing serves Connecticut, New York, New England, and beyond!Download the episode here or listen below.Where to find them: www.costanzoclothing.com Email: tara@costanzoclothiers.com and tony@costanzoclothiers.comPhone: (860) 667-8766Social media: @costanzoclothing on Instagram and @costanzoclothing on Facebook Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

We're Back!  Cate & Regina's Recap of the 2021 Wedding SeasonInner Glow Aesthetics MD w/Dr. Ilona Shternfeld
Dr. Ilona Shternfeld is the owner of Inner Glow Aesthetics MD, a medical spa in Avon, Connecticut. Dr. Ilona joins Regina and Cate to talk about how our looks do and don't affect our mental state, feminism and aesthetic medicine, why her original expertise as an eye surgeon helps put her clients' anxieties to rest and when you should schedule certain procedures if having them done before your wedding day.We spent a lot of time talking about the potentially addictive nature of cosmetic procedures, and we really benefited from hearing Dr. Ilona's straightforward, honest thoughts about how to manage peoples' expectations around changing the way they look. Surprisingly, we wound up talking about themes we've discussed time and again on this show: honesty, good boundaries, and deep listening for what people are truly asking when they request a particular service.Part of our conversation was a fascinating exploration of how medical and aesthetic treatments often intertwine, and Dr. Ilona nerded out about the difference between male and female facial anatomy, different kinds of muscles, and facial balance. In the end, her basic message about aesthetic medicine is simple: make choices for yourself, never for anyone else. Oh, and never tell anyone they look tired.Dr. Ilona was a wealth of information, and her candor and expertise on the subject were truly delightful.Where to find her: innerglowaestheticsmd.com Email: info@innerglowaestheticsmd.comPhone: 860-999-4865Social media: @doctorilonas on Instagram and @innerglowspact on Facebook Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

Le'Mixx Band with Myke Ross
Myke Ross is the band leader of Le'Mixx Band, a wedding band out of Hamden, Connecticut. Myke and band member Randy joined Regina and Cate to talk about their longtime love of seventies music, growing up playing music together, and how a DJ just can't rival the energy of an eight-piece band. They're two totally different beasts.We talked about how Le'Mixx Band brings the party to any wedding, providing lights, energy, and all different kinds of music throughout any and all parts of a wedding. They regaled us with stories about their history together as young friends who ran into each other later in life, and we laughed over how fate can bring people together at Stop N' Shop. When asked if there's something that people who seek them out all have in common, Myke answered without missing a beat, 'Well, they're hip." That pretty much sums up our interview with them.Myke and Randy were delightfully laid-back and easy to talk to, and they stoked the flame for wanting to see live music again! Where to find them: lemixxband.comEmail: mychaelaross@gmail.comFind the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

Morgan joins Regina and Cate to talk about how photography went from a casual hobby to an obsession and how the pandemic forced her to plunge headfirst into doing photography full-time.We talked at length about why Morgan focuses her attention on intimate weddings, and Morgan explained her process of coming to understand what's 'mandatory' and what's not as a photographer--finding the gray areas where she can pick and choose what really matters to her and what lights her up.She reiterated why you don't want to hire a photographer solely based on price (a common theme on this podcast), and we talked about the value of choosing your photographer wisely. She was also really forthcoming about the challenges of pricing yourself, and she and Cate talked shop about being perfectionists in a creative field. Morgan's main thing is to RESEARCH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER before booking them!Morgan was wonderfully chatty, and we had so much fun talking photography with her! Where to find her: www.morganofsharick.comEmail: meofsharick@gmail.comSocial media: @meofsharick.photography on Instagram and on Facebook**Recorded March 8, 2021**Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

The Best Day Ever Events by Paula w/Paula DeLuise
Paula DeLuise is the owner of The Best Day Ever Events by Paula, a wedding planning and event day-of coordination business based in New York and serving the tri-state region. Paula joins Regina and Cate to talk about how her big Italian family and childhood passion for throwing parties inspired her to start her business, and about being in that movie with Liam Hemsworth (two of the three of them on the podcast were swooning pretty hard).We talked about how Paula's career in the entertainment industry (she's a dancer) has helped shape her approach to weddings, and we spent some time talking about the importance of a good first impression AND about continually renewing our clients' trust in us over time.Unlike most wedding planners/coordinators, Paula focuses entirely on wedding day management. Her goal is to work with clients who have already painstakingly planned their big day but don't want to be responsible for pulling it all off--they want to be present for their own party! She's super clear about what she loves to do and who she serves, and it was great talking to a vendor with such a specific niche and purpose.Paula was lovely, easy to talk to, and so professional.

Irma joins Regina and Cate to talk about how her passion bled from photography to videography and back again, why pretending to be someone you're not will always lead to failure, and the impact of aligned branding on reaching the right clients.We talked at length about why and how Irma overcommunicates upfront with potential clients, and Irma explained how the responsibilities and time commitment of photographers and videographers differ, from the perspective of someone who does both.All three of us connected over the theme of learning to be our authentic selves with clients, and finding clients who are looking for exactly what we do best instead of trying (and inevitably failing) to be perfect for everyone. We got real about the impact COVID has had on our businesses and our lives, and (as usually happens) Irma described a learning experience that was especially hard for her, but ultimately helped her grow her business to heights she never expected. As she said, "It wouldn't be a business if you weren't crying some nights."Irma was down to earth, clear as a bell about what she does and who she does it for, and we loved having her on as a guest!Where to find her: www.earthandsun.co Email: hello@earthandsun.coSocial media: @earthandsunco_ on Instagram, @earthandsunco on Facebook *Recorded March 18, 2021*Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

Love, Honor and Cherish w/David Lang
David Lang is an officiant and owner of Love, Honor, and Cherish, based in Vernon, CT. He serves all of Connecticut. David joins Regina and Cate to crack them up, talk about wonderfully nerdy weddings, and explain why there are photos of him officiating in a dinosaur costume on his website.David regaled us with a variety of delightful stories and shocked us with the number of weddings he officiates each year. He is a full-time middle school English teacher, so Love, Honor, and Cherish remains his fun, part-time job--and as such, he gets to be "as relaxed as he wants to be" about it, forgoing complicated contracts and retainers in favor of keeping things simple. As we got to know David better throughout the interview, we came to understand who his ideal couples are--hint, they're usually slightly offbeat and have unique ideas for their weddings--and thus, we all have that in common! David also explained how his teaching career has informed his role as an officiant, and the adage, 'you can never teach the same lesson twice' proves as true for weddings as it does for the classroom.David was an incredibly charming, fun guest, and we both hope to work with him at weddings in the future! We know they'll be incredibly thoughtful, likely funny, and they may even include a unicycle. Where to find him: lovehonorandcherish.com Email: lovehonorandcherishct@gmail.com *Recorded March 1, 2021*Find the hosts on social:Podcast: @weddoweddingpodcastRegina: @weddingsbyreginamarieCate: @catebarryphotographywww.WeDoWeddingPodcast.comwww.WeddingsbyReginaMarie.comwww.CateBarryPhotography.comIntro/Outro MusicInstant by Nettson https://soundcloud.com/nettsonCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/al-instantMusic promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3MPl9jeVOR8––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––🎵 Track Info:Title: Instant by NettsonGenre and Mood: Holiday + Happy

(Anna is a social studies teacher when she's not playing the flute or managing her business!)Anna also recounted some memorable song choices her clients have made, and we chatted about popular ceremonial songs she recommends. We also discussed the hidden costs of running a business--particularly one involving musical instruments!--and how much you can learn about a person when you discover the music that speaks to their heart.
