JOSÉ ROLÓN - OWNER & EVENT PLANNER
A great wedding glorifies the jubilant couple--while freeing them to make the most of this monumental day. But to make that look easy takes months of hard work and preparation.
That’s where José Rolón comes in. A nuptial maestro, 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’s opened two high-end restaurants), José planned his own successful wedding at the coveted Foundry, a top five NYC venue. Passionate about the venue, he joined the staff at the Foundry, rising to become a crucial and beloved member of the events team. He quickly made a name for his chill vibe and generous command, then left to start José Rolón Events.
SOME THINGS THAT CHARACTERIZE JOSÉ—AND SET HIM APART:
- He’s massively comfortable under great pressure. Bring it on!!
- He’ll never oversell you—whether it’s a vendor’s services, or his own.
- He cools hot tempers with a kindness and composure that are contagious.
- He’s a foodie. So he treats food as a priority—not an afterthought.
- He uses a surprising secret weapon: generosity. Instead of channeling a drill sergeant, José first asks, "what can I do to help?"
- He’s has a love for dance. This is why he hooks up all of his couples with a choreographer for their first dance.
- You’ll never find him with a headset, running, or being dramatic. He does his work with the necessary stealth…and class.
- He has infallible solutions for last-minute emergencies (a misplaced birdcage veil? grooming kit for the hungover groom? José has them in hand).
AS A RESULT, EVERY JOSÉ ROLÓN EVENT IS A SEAMLESS WONDER. PARENTS ADORE HIM, VENDORS RESPECT HIM, AND BRIDES AND GROOMS BESTOW THEIR TRUST.

Partial Planning. It’s your wedding, and you’ve started flawlessly. The venue is stunning, the invitations breathtaking, and the caterer will blow away Auntie May. The beginning of your perfect day. But when the clock starts winding down and you’re overwhelmed with loose ends, José will step in to take care of the rest. From photography to cake, he'll be there to lend you his expertise, deep connections, and nitty-gritty detail work, including mapping out the day (and ensuring all vendors fall in line), reviewing documentation, liaising with wedding party and crucial family members, and even handling last-minute nerves or emergencies.
Full Planning. Searching for a partner to help you create the most romantic day on earth? Look to us for the skill and flair. We'll take your ideas and build upon them, from hunting for a venue and caterer to negotiating with vendors, creating budgets, mapping out room diagrams, and coordinating rehearsals. We'll even review your contracts, reading the fine print so you don't have to. Our Full Planning Package is all-inclusive, like a five-star luxury resort. José will be there the day of, and available two weeks before the wedding (or “crunch time”, as we like to call it) to calm frazzled nerves and alleviate any potential crises. It's his job is to make sure the day goes without a hitch--and that you enjoy yourselves as much as your guests will.
