Kate Schaefer of H&H Weddings

Meet Kate Schaefer, Owner of H&H Weddings based in New York

H&H Weddings is an LGBTQ+ wedding blog dedicated to providing high end resources to plan and create a one-of-a-kind event. 

Who is H&H Wedding's Dream Client?

Saks Fifth Avenue approaches H&H Weddings to help them create their 2017 fall wedding campaign.

What is one of your favorite creative, offbeat projects you’ve worked on? 

I have been a part of a number of styled shoots that have been super fun and allowed me to work with some of my favorite people (LEAH WEINBERG of Color Pop Events!)

What are three ingredients for a perfect day at your company?

Booze + Fun People + Creativity (because you’d be surprised by how much non-creative shit I have to do)

If you could plan a dream retreat for you and the folks you work closely with, what would you do and where would you go?

I would go to Big Sur with all of the best people I know and we would have a makeup-free/fuss-free week of empowering each other.

What do you do when you're not working and what's your favorite way to practice self-care?

I love Bikram yoga, and I work out frequently. Plus I try to make sure I get lots of sleep. 

What's the biggest risk you've ever taken?

I moved to NYC without knowing a single person there.

If you were in charge, what would the next big wedding trend be?

I want funnier weddings. Like, I think Louie CK should become an officiant. Or John Oliver. Also, I think weddings should be more eco-friendly. There’s this very disposable attitude towards weddings because it’s only one day. 

What are you most looking forward to at {un}convention?

Seeing Carly Romeo, obviously. Oh, and meeting a bunch of rad new people.
