#15 – José Rolón: Turning Tragedy into Triumph

In This Episode

José Rolón calls himself a “nuptial maestro” which, as a recovering wedding planner, our host Heather thinks is hilarious!! For almost a decade, José has made a name for himself with his chill vibe and generous command in wedding planning and design. Making him one of the top wedding planners in NYC.

Now, where this story takes an unexpected and delightful turn is that during pandemic quarantine, José and his family chose to take TikTok by storm! And as a result, he’s been featured on the TODAY Show, NowThis News, Ellen’s Game of Games, Tamron Hall Show, Univision Se Habla USA, and The Drew Barrymore Show. If that wasn’t enough, José was named co-host of Season 2’s web series Parenting Wins and named Tiktok’s 2021 Latinx Trailblazers. 

After the tragic loss of his husband, this single father of 3 has leaned into chance and opportunity in a very big way. This episode is both heartwarming and hilarious. 

You do NOT want to miss the amazing content José and his family is putting out. Be sure to follow him on all the platforms including Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.
