Laura Boulton

Episode 50 brings us to the beautiful suburbs of Connecticut and the lovely Fairfield home of extraordinary event planner Laura Boulton. An insightful, dynamic, funny, creative and charming innovator with a delicious laugh, Laura explores everything from the very close relationships she forges with wedding couples and their families, the trust she engenders in her clients and the highly personal commitment and dedication she shows them all the way to…a Master Class in “tablescapes.” Along the way, we talk about the logistical challenges of weddings at private residences, the sense of true community she builds with every project she takes on, the dynamics of the “First Look,” the importance of clients letting go on the “day of” a wedding and so much more. This is an episode packed with details, inside intelligence and the unique point of view of an exceptional and incredibly highly sought-after talent, the one-and-only Laura Boulton. Join us to learn so much from a true legendary wedding and event pro and enjoy every moment! Thanks for listening. Let us know what you think. -Doug

Lisa Traina

Episode 49 brings us to the lovely home of the delightful, effusive and charming wedding officiant Lisa Traina. Perhaps more than anyone I’ve ever interviewed, Lisa really loves what she does…which is performing wedding ceremonies that are beautiful, joyous, sensitive, personal and deeply reflect the people she is joining in matrimony. I was truly touched by her passion and respect for her role as the officiant of a marriage and her thoughts on “getting to be with people at the happiest moment of their lives.” -Doug

Andrea Freeman Events

Episode 48 took me up to the gorgeous Hudson Valley to sit down with the charming and erudite Andrea Freeman, Founder and Principal designer for the New York City based event planning and production company Andrea Freeman Events. Andrea has created countless extraordinary celebrations around the globe for a diverse set of clients that have included private individuals, socialites, and red-carpet celebrities. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Andrea where she shared her deeply insightful thoughts about how to bring people together in a meaningful way, driven by her belief that there is a growing risk of losing real connection in our increasingly virtual world. Her episode is optimistic, unexpectedly fresh and full of important moments; I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did. Doug

Jules Miller

I had the most delightful afternoon the other day, when I sat down with the lovely and remarkable Jules Miller, founder and creative mastermind behind “The Revelry Cooperative.” As she will explain, her concept for the “Revelry” has been to cultivate and create a group of extraordinary “raw spaces” that function as a thoroughly new and creative alternative to traditional hotel venues. These delicious and gorgeous blank canvasses (just awaiting transformation) are mostly located in ever-trending Brooklyn and Queens, and north of Manhattan in the idyllic, leafy Hudson Valley, whose popularity is as Jules put it, “on fire.” Jules’s passion for her work was immediately evident, inviting and refreshing as she details what it takes to transform raw spaces into viable, magical and unforgettable venues for weddings and corporate parties. This lively, inspiring episode should be mandatory listening for all creative couples with a desire to “think outside the hotel” and explore every option before deciding on where to celebrate their love and marriage. Stay till the very end (the last minute!) to hear Jules’s fascinating (and justifiable!) defense of the joy and meaning of weddings specifically as discussed in the feminist blog Jezebel.com. What a joy to spend this time with Jules Miller. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. –Doug

Alejandra Sacasa

Episode 46 takes us to the elegant Westchester home of Alejandra Sacasa de Posse and my delightful conversation with the beautiful, lively and incredibly bright and passionate Vice President of Business Development at Preston Bailey. From Miami to Nicaragua to South Bend, Indiana (where she graduated from Notre Dame) to Italy to Cartagena, to name just a very few, Alejandra is a sophisticated world traveler — and her life’s work and scope ranges from her love of education –which was nourished directly by Mr. Bailey, the event and design superstar aka “the Legend” — which she fosters through Preston Bailey Protégé and PB Live…to her own innovative laser cutting/engraving enterprise, fittingly called Mark With A Spark. And that’s just the beginning. An eternal teacher, communicator and student, Alejandra was herself a PB Protégé and like her mentor, she is devoted to sharing the seemingly endless knowledge of Preston Bailey and everything from “how to transform a space” ...

Ali Barone

Episode 45 features the intensely dynamic and utterly charming Ali Barone, Owner and Creative Director of Ali Barone Events, a full service event planning company. Our delightful conversation is as versatile and creative as Ali herself — from her roots in Brooklyn to her role as an educator…as we follow her work in television that began behind the camera and ultimately moved on-air on cable TV (TLC)…to her extraordinary career as a gifted and highly sought-after event planner. Ali’s incredible energy and remarkably wide-ranging skill set, resourcefulness and many, many creative talents are a fascinating mix — and so is our episode! Enjoy.

Allyson Joseph, Bob Gail Events

Allyson Joseph is the co-owner of the family-owned Los Angeles based wedding-industry giant, Bob Gail Events. Warm, funny, incredibly smart and gracious, she’s a remarkably accomplished young woman. Who sends hand-written thank you notes to vendors post-events? The same person who wrote her Masters thesis about the theoretical perspectives of the wedding and event industry, crowdsurfed at her own wedding and launched her career with an internship at Danny Meyer’s Union Square Cafe before heading back to run the company business in L.A. Only the extraordinary Allyson Joseph. From tales of Clinton’s Inaugural Ball to installing a scaffold dance floor over a pool to spontaneous/”surprise” event planning, our conversation is bright, fast-paced, engaging and lively, filled with informative and entertaining stories of weddings she has produced from Southern California to Tuscany and points all over the globe…Her thoughtful, meaningful words ask and speak volumes when Allyson muses a...

Jennifer Zabinski

Episode 43 take us to the Upper East Side headquarters of world-acclaimed event producer, Jennifer Zabinski. Jennifer is at the very top of the list of the world’s most elite wedding planners in both VOGUE and Harper’s BAZAAR Magazines, among many other noteworthy publications. Having produced the celebrity wedding of Serena Williams to Reddit founder, Alexis Ohanian, is only one of Jennifer’s dynamic list of extraordinary accomplishments. Starting her career at the prestigious school of Hotel Management at Cornell, and then learning the luxury market with stints at both the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton Hotels, the incredibly well-spoken, knowledgeable and quite humble Jennifer sat for over an hour with me, doling out brilliant pearls of “wedding wisdom,” as well as exploring the little-understood challenges — and unforgettable rewards of destination weddings, whether the celebration is held on a remote ranch in Wyoming or in Capri, along the glorious Amalfi Coast or some des...

Chef Gaurav Anand

Episode 42 brings me to the corner of 28th St. and Lexington Ave, the home of superstar Chef Gaurav Anand’s Bhatti Indian Grill. After treating me to an incredible and authentic north Indian feast and introducing me to his good friend, producer & celebrity, DJ Shadow Dubai, we sat down to record the podcast. Thank you, Chef Gaurav, for taking the time (you’ll hear the sound of a packed lunch crowd in the background!) out of your day to introduce me to the beauty and nuances of Indian cuisine and so much more. From the charm and excitement, magic, meaning and music of every Indian wedding to the “explosion of flavor” (think: many exotic spices) inherent in every Indian dish; the health benefits of ghee (aka clarified butter) to his realization as a law student that he loved food much more than contracts and the Indian equivalent of torts which led to a huge new career direction; the very welcome changed perception of Indian cuisine in America to the influence of Instagram and muc...

Ira Levy

For this episode, I headed to Brooklyn — and the incredible 7,000 square feet of raw space that is home to Lytehouse Studio and Levy NYC Design and Production — to explore the extraordinary world of lighting with tech wizard and lighting guru, the exceptionally gifted and talented Ira Levy. As a pre-med sophomore at Stony Brook University, Ira attended a student-run concert by the iconic 80s rock band, “The Pretenders.” Captivated by the entire spectacle, he joined the “concert committee” the next day, beginning a lifetime career as an iconic innovator in the fields of lighting, sound and video for weddings, corporate functions and any other conceivable live events. We talked, in depth, about the magic of lighting and the mystery of how “the light starts on the ceiling and the beam ends up on the table and there’s nothing in between.” Thanks for everything, Ira. -Doug
