José specializes in bringing comfort to a process that’s famously filled with tough decisions and mounting stress. In doing so, he leaves his ego out, and gets the job done—step by easygoing step.
A hospitality veteran (he opened two high-end restaurants in the early aughts), José planned his own wedding at The Foundry, one of the most coveted wedding venues in New York City. Passionate about the venue, he joined their staff and quickly become a crucial and beloved member of the events team.
After making a name for himself, with his chill vibe and generous command, he left to start José Rolón Events. He now plans and executes seamless weddings that gain national recognition. Parents adore him, vendors respect him, and brides and grooms bestow their trust in him.
